Do you have any thoughts and suggestions on this problem? Thanks,
I just located your previous post and a photo of your Argosy.
Part of the problem is that you "do not" have a 1978 Argosy.
When i enlarged your trailer photo by 400 percent, the entrance door lock is a "KT" lock, which was last used in "1977".
Owners often state the wrong year, which in turn leads to making UPS richer, when parts have to be returned, exchanged and then the correct parts shipped out. That triples the shipping costs.
Please post your trailer serial number, and then we can better help you.
There is also a kit for a 1977 entrance door lock, which is very different than a kit for a 1978 entrance door lock.
