I was wondering that too. The bolt would be sticking out, and you could not close it.

Have been using the handle lock for two years until recently when we read here that it is the one that can become problematic. Now we just use the top one- the deadbolt. When I ordered spare keys from Bauer to be able to hide one the rep said the non-deadbolt lock is what they use when the trailers are still on the lot as a master key will work on that lock.

When I saw this, I thought "turn inside lever to 'locked', go out, push door closed - what't the problem?"

So Jim's thinking that the deadbolt was locked, and perhaps Baglo was too, but...

I assume that this means that the normal handle-operated catch was locked, not the deadbolt.

Aren't they both separately lockable in these locksets, like just about every other RV? Or do some of them have only the deadbolt?

I received my spare Bauer recently. Spent 3 hours looking under the front bumper for my magnetic key box. Then, along comes Susannah and says "did you look under the back bumper?"

The frustration is slowly wearing off...

My lock is Fastec so I'm staying out of this.
Except to say that when I lock my door, using the top lock ( not the deadbolt ) I need a key to perform the function, and that key is in my hand. I have no clue how one could lock the door, and not have the key to do it.
