That was apparently too small an opening so they started trying to get into the trailer next to mine and unfortunately, succeeded. That little deadbolt saved my bacon!
Oh MY . I bet you were heart sick. Did you get everything fixed to your satisfaction? What did you do about the door? ? ? ?

Sorry to hear of your troubles Zardoz. Were you at an RV park?

Peace and Sunshine

I finally got around and replaced my lock inserts today. It all went quite easy, and the old locks and tool key are ready to be sent off to Fastec. The dead bolt was immediately out, and the upper one took some fiddling but at last came out as well. And Cafe Egg is back in the summer position, all ready for overnighters.
