That's how mine was. I didn't have a problem with it at all. Kept both keys on the same ring.

At the hardware store you can get color code key covers. I have one for the front door another for the back door one for storage and another for the hitch lock.

If it will help, I can send my son camping with you (you know, the one that's WAY smarter than me!). He takes the keys in the ocean in his pocket and PRESTO- no more key issues!

I had the same issue on my Aljo TT.
I jot so frustrated that I took my pocket knife and carved two big notches in the plastic of the "Living room" key so I could identify it quickly in the dark.
I didn't get the thinking behind two different lock sets either.

Same here... Color ring goes to front door, regular key goes to bunk bed door.

I thank everyone for their comments and suggestions - I have already done the "notch" thing and will keep an eye out for a couple of colored covers. Just the same, it irks the heck out of me that such a simple thing as "keyed alike" doors aren't done as a matter of routine !!!

Simply scribe one key with an f & one with a b or just scribe only one then you will know front from back. Problem solved $ saved= $40.00!

Thank you for posting this, as I'm tired of people treating me like a dumb blonde when I mention it. I went to the parts guy where we bought our RV and asked if they made keys. He said, yeah why. I said because my deadbolt and door key are two different keys and the trailer only came with one deadbolt key. He said, that's not possible, the same key fits both. I said no it doesn't it's two keys. He again said, no the other key is for something else, the same key fits the deadbolt and the door. I got angry and said, Dude, I'm not an idiot I know that it takes two keys to open the door. He said, OK then, but the key machine is broken anyway. ugh!

I had to replace one of the locks in one of my storage doors because none of the keys fit it.
