Help 2013 27 FB ,front compartment door lock

Has anyone replaced their front door compartment lock?

Airstream circa 06 -14, I need to replace my lock as it is hanging up and not engaging the inside lip while trying to lock (cheap pot metal). The first pic is the door laying down over the battery box lid the second is the exterior lock .

Update on compartment hatch lock

So after a doing the old internet search I found that this lock is unique to my trailer with the front storage hatch and the company that made them is no longer in business (oh happy day not).
It is basically a unique lock as it has a cam inside which allows you to work the catch in an unlocked position to open and close.
Maybe me taking it apart and showing some love (cleaning and oil) made it well again,, Happy ending,,,, so far .
Also I noticed the hatch door was sticking and I used a tad of silicone lube around the hatch door and voila slick as new.
