Dead bolt mechanism came out with key

I just bought this used 2019 Sightseer two weeks ago (with only 9,000 miles on it). I think I'm beginning to find why the owner gave it up.

Of all things hard to believe, the entire dead bolt mechanism came out when I pulled the key - after locking the dead bolt.

I put the keys in my pocket not even knowing what had happened.

When I got back to the RV and went to use the key, I found the mechanism clinging to the key.

Fortunately, I was able to get the mechanism back in place and unlock the dead bolt, but I can't get the mechanism to stay in the socket.

Another thread mentioned something about a plastic part that breaks. Plastic? What kind of cheap idea is that?

And that's only one of three problems I'm having with this RV.

There should be a tiny hole in the tumbler face-plate beside the key-hole. That is for a tiny pin(paper clip) that pushes a part to allow the tumbler assy to be removed.
Any competent locksmith can repair yours.

Many thanks. I've been trying to call a locksmith for two days. No one is answering.
