That's the lock I had in the photos it's too small as well as the Bauer the oem lock used was a one off use during a lock shortage during the big FIC recall.

Very close to what I did on a way long gone Kountry Aire 5er. Nothing in the '70s on any RV was 'standard' then. I also added a conventional dead bolt too on that 5er as we were having a theft problem in our neighborhood at the time.

There are simple DIY solutions to most anything on an RV and drop in isn't always the better way since a mfr does it the easiest/fastest, least expensive for their bottom line profit number, i.e. piecework

It doesn't happen all the time but i always leave a key in my golf cart just in case and a screwdriver in a drawer near the door ridiculous on a 2 year old trailer to deal with this BS !!

The Leo lock's cut out it is 3.66" wide 4.409" high

Standard RV cut out is 2-3/4" wide 3-3/4" high

Called RVlock, Bauer, Fastec there's no retrofit option for this lock

I called Keystone they told me to call Challenger door

Called Challenger door there is no retrofit from them they are going to talk to the fabrication Dept to see if the can maybe make a cover plate to adapt to a standard lock.

I included a few photos and the flyer for the Leo lock my photo with the RVlock in the door is a little off but the front part of the lock is the gap that is all around the door when it's sitting flush was trying to take a photo holding the lock the door and my phone.

My dealer is telling keystone to send a new door with a standard size cut out. I will see how that goes ....

150.00 up here for a new one. no abuse at all infact i am very careful with it, the dealer has had nothing but problems with them and they said they replace one to three a week. the dealer has paid for 3 and they are on a 4th now, I had it in getting a couple things touched up a few weeks ago and the cylinder fell out right in front of them...
