I was temporarily locked out of my 2022 RV during my very first trip. I stopped at a Wal*Mart in Fenley, NV. Locked it up and it wouldn't unlock. But to be stuck in a Wal*Mart parking lot isn't a bad place to be stuck. I went back in and purchased a can of WD40 and that did the trick.

Which part was "stuck"? Normally, for the lock itself, folks (including the lock manufacturers) recommend dry graphite powder. But, if WD40 worked, good for you.

I have no idea. It just needed to be lubed. Yeah, at home (Reno) I have the stuff made for locks, but I ain't going to find that stuff at a WallyMart.

You must have had locks in the past that WD40 was able to fix. Not uncommon at all for locks that have spent a lot of time outdoors.
