We do only because we don't want someone letting our cat out.

If DW is out shopping and dogs need to go out, or just visit or take a walk, no. If leaving in vehicle, yes. Now at one of the rally's, we went on a tour and someone at the CG took our dogs for a walk for us. Everything was as we left it. Meaning no one from outside the CG came in.

Mixed reviews. I'll stick with my old fashion metal key ring.

BTW - I noticed that Amazon says one of its warehouses is in Waco,TS. I think they mean Waco,TX.

Tried FR but they were in excess of 60.00 each I believe ( don't know why not being an electronic key like an auto that unlocks doors and trunk ).
$60...for a DUMB key?!?

That is crazy Fernand!

X2. I don't think we locked our rig at Goshen or BamaGanza except when we were physically off the CG

Doesn't really matter whether you lock the doors or not if there are other Berkshire owners there. All the keys, except for the ignition and upper lock on the door, are the same for all Berkshires.

Very!! All the compartment keys, including the fuse compartment, and the bottom lock on the door are all the same. How do you think FR techs get into your coach to do work when you are not there? They tell you to only lock the bottom lock on the door because the bottom lock key is the same for all Berkshires as is the key to the basement locks.

There. Don't you feel secure now?

Just look at the number on the lock on yours, then look at your neighbors. There are only a couple of different lock/key numbers!

And many of the tool boxes on the back of pickups have the 751 lock also.

I knew about the ch751 keys and changed all my locks to barrel locks when I had my class c. I thought I was safe here. Hmmm, that central locking project is looking better by the moment. I think I do remember Randy saying that the bottom locks were the same, but the deadbolt was unique to each vehicle. Going to have to remember to use that one when I do lock it.
