Ignition Key; Pedal Extenders

Hi! When I purchased my 2008 Berkshire, I only received 1 ignition key. I am in need of a duplicate key. How and where do I get one? Also, both my wife and I are short (vertically challenged), how do we get pedal

extenders for both gas and brake?

Please advise! Thanks

You should be able to get a new ignition key at most any place that makes keys. Most hardware stores, real ones not Home Depot or Lowes, should be able to take care of that for you. Both my wife and I find the pedals how to reach also. I've seen people actually put a block of wood on top of the pedals. I'm not sure how safe that might be, but that is the only cure that I know of.

I had a key made at a local locksmith shop with out any problem. Another option to building up the pedals is to put a cushion or pillow behind your back which will put you closer to the pedals. This helps a lot.

Ran into same problem and had the dealer move the drivers seat forward. They had to remove 4 bolts, drill new holes about 3" forward and rebolt the seat down. Worked out pretty good for us. Blocks on pedals sounds risky if they fall off or slide some how.
