Under lock and key

Not much happening.

I did pick up some PEX, and putty tape to get things ready to put the bathroom back together.  I really don’t know when I’ll be able to get started with that though.

My new power inlet from Marinco showed up today so I can install that to get power back to the trailer.  I still have a few outlets to run.  The TwinTemp needs a switched outlet, so I have to work that into the mix as soon as I locate a suitable place to install it.

Anyway, I did manage to get one thing done without mucking it up too much.  I pulled the main door lock off.  It’s an L-77 and as most of these vintage trailers it was missing all the keys.  How does that happen?  Anyway, I got a new lock cylindar and keys from Vintage Trailer Supply.

I managed to drill out the old cylindar and install the new one w/o too much trouble.  As I disassembled it, there was a broken spring and a couple of ball barrings jumped out.  Figured out where they went, but the spring is bad.  Seems to work fine w/o it.  I may try and track one down at the local locksmith.

Here’s a couple of photos.




Any ideas how to improve the finish on this thing?

That’s it for now.  Tomorrow is Saturday so I hope to get a lot of something done.  It really doesn’t matter what because there is so much to do, anything is an improvment 😉
