Just an FYI, if this happens and you are at the trailer park. Start borrowing keys from a neighbor. I bet you find one that fits! Unlike cars there are only a couple of trailer keys made and even fewer exterior access door locks.

That being said...we keep a spare key at the local RV repair shop down the road from our permanent campsite. yes it saves you from the humiliation of going sight to sight and asking to try their keys.... yeah I've done it...It was the owner at the RV place who told me about asking to try different keys (in case they are closed), and it makes no difference on the make, more the year.

Has anybody seen the sun in the last week?

ive done this before too......

after realizing they keyless entry on my truck was a genius invention, i ordered one for the trailer door.....now i can lock the keys in there and not worry....

i got the bauer trailer model...they make one for motorhomes as well...

it says its a direct bolt on replacement...

well see!


(when i locked myself out i had to send my kid through the front hatch, and push in the piece of luan to the bed and then push the bed up to get in trailer.....then i had to fix it later...lol....i thought about asking around for keys to try....but i dont look like the nicest guy so im told, and i didnt want people to think i was breaking in)...LOL

Installed a key box...best & inexpensive solution for potential lockouts or if we just don't want to carry our door keys while out

Where did you purchase this from?

Perfect solution and location for a lock out situation.

Edited to add: I checked some similar lockboxes around the 'net. These seem to be mounted to the wall with screws only. (and since they're located, by necessity, in an unlocked compartment) What would prevent a person taking something like a butter knife and ripping this box off the wall? Yes, I know they'd then just have a box with the keys in it, but is the box made of metal sufficient to resist a good pounding with a hammer?

I have a ford f150 with a door code pad. I keep a extra trailer key in the glove box. If I get locked out of the trailer, I unlock the truck with the key pad, and get the trailer key out of the glove box.

The key lock box is a good idea. Please note, if someone wants in to your trailer, all they have to do is pry the lock box off the wall. I have smashed may of those lock boxes to get the key out, vary easy to smash open. Just be careful if you store the trailer in a storage lot.

I'm wondering about one of those styles that realtors use, the kind with the loop on the top like a padlock. Those could be hung on the crab bar by the steps but that puts it right there in plain view for a determined thief and if need be they could unscrew the grab bar off the side of the RV, then smash the lock box.

But, as DH just said; ours is a 5er so it's not likely we'd ever tow it with another truck, so we'll just put an extra set inside the TV.

Making a complete extra set will be a pain....key for the hitch tri pod, key for the surge guard connection lock, door key, storage bay key, key for the 5er hitch.

Lock smith's gonna love me.

First thing I did was get two extra sets made, I understand the lock smith will be in the Riviera for another two weeks....
