I am new to the Caravan Talk Forum. In fact, I'm new to caravanning!
I recently purchased a second hand Coachman Pastiche 460/2 in excellent condition and hope to spend many enjoyable trips away with my wife and three Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.
My problem is that I am experiencing problems with the locks on the storage compartment door which is located on the near side of the van towards the front.
When the compartment door locks are in the “locked” position it is not possible to remove the key. and when you try to pull the key out in this position the entire cylinder comes out!
Can anyone please tell me if this is a common problem and, if so, what is the cure? If I am correct the locks are West Alloy 5286 Compartment Lock Assembly.
As you can imagine I am reluctant to replace the cylinders as this would no doubt mean new keys and as the existing key fits all the other externally accessed compartments this would be a considerable nuisance.
I hope that somebody out there can help me.
