Yours is probably the same as my 2019. We used the "Compact right hand RV Lock. Our first upgrade to the trailer and well worth it.....no more carrying around a key. In case of an emergency, we keep a complete set up trailer keys hidden in a magnetized key holder, hidden on the trailer. Very easy to install.

A picture of your lock would help as there seems to be different styles being installed by Montana. A Search on "rv lock" will expose a number of threads on this topic. It appears that there is no replacement for the vertical style lock. But take a look at these Threads:

On the subject of locks, last night my wife locked the deadbolt and when I tried to go out found we were locked in. The internal screws holding the internal plate had backed out and the bar attaching the deadbolt and lock had come out. Of course I had no phillps screwdriver inside, so out of the window I go. Easy fix but I will be putting Red Locktite on those two screws. Might pay to pull your inside plate off and check those screws. It would have been really bad if had been locked out.

We love our RV Lock. We have had it on our last 3 Montana’s. As mentioned, match your style lock to the locks on their website. Good luck.

We love our RV lock, installed one a couple of months ago on our front door and it's been one of the best mods we have made.

We absolutely love RV Lock!!! Just purchased a new Montana and haven't gotten the new lock yet and boy do I miss having it! Can't wait to get the new one ordered. If you have questions on which lock, their customer service is amazing! I wanted baggage door locks and sent them a Facebook message. They asked for a photo and sadly told me they don't make them for our baggage doors, but it's another way you could contact them to find the right lock! One of the best upgrades you can make!

We just installed the Latch.it. Looked at the RV locks and I'm sure they're okay, but this was a little cheaper and it has two key fobs. It works great. Without asking the Latch IT company sent me several emails asking if we needed any assistance. Company seems very responsive. Will let everyone know if we have any problems.

I used Latch.IT also. Also very response, emails asking if there were any issues.

A little hard to install but it fits well.

This happened to me too - but we were outside!! This was one of the few times I had left the rear sliding window unlocked. My daughter was with us and was only about 30 years old, so she climbed in and I handed her tools and she got it open. As I said we were lucky that time.

Just put ours on last weekend. Its fantastic. installs and programs really easy.
Never need to worry about not having the keys. and if we happen to be out at the store or something and the pup needs to go out, someone in our group can code in and take her for a walk. probably one of the best store bought upgrades we've installed

I installed it on my entry door and got another key fob and spare key as well. 6 months after installing it, somehow water got inside and fried the circuit board. They replaced it, no problem. A few times the deadbolt will not dis-engage and I have to use my key. Reading other posts, I purchased a spare red locking knob/handle and a spare keypad. Tempted to install RVLocks on our baggage doors, just for the convenience. All in all, it was a nice upgrade.
