Yup the best lock lube you can get. Probably best to get it from the local lock smith's shop. And then repeated applications and gently inserting the key and gently turning it. For days if necessary. Better than breaking the key in the lock and then paying BIG bucks for the same locksmith to come and fix you up

DO NOT USE WD-40 on your locks, I highly recommend TRI- Flow, it is a silicone base lube. The WD-40 attracts dust and dirt and doesn't actually lubricate its only a water displacer.

Yep, Tri-Flow is the stuff I was thinking of. Costs a lot of money and lasts a long long time.

One of the locks on my Minnie Winne was installed wrong and had to be turned in the opposite direction to unlock it. If that seems to be your case, remove the lock from the door, loosen the nut on the backside and turn the locking bar 180 degrees, and retighten the nut, then re-install the lock in the door.

Please post more information about what you have. Winnebago makes many different models in that year, in all years. We need specifics in order to give you the best possible help.
