New ignition key for 2012 390BH60

That would make sense because Ford and Chevy chassis most likely would have a chip in the key. For you none Berk responders our keys supplied by Freightliner do not have chips in the ignition key and replacement keys are available from locations like Ace hardware and locksmiths.
We appreciate responses to our threads but if you haven't own a Berk now or previously you probably don't understand the equipment used or what it might take to fix it. Most of us are trying sometimes quickly to fix a problem to resume our travels and bad information could send us in the opposite direction from where we need to be. If you respond please tell us your model/make so we can determine how it may help us.

Wow how does a post about a key get so off track. I had read this and went to look at my key. I am very sure it doesn't have a chip in it.

Delco, We appreciate the advice from you but as you can see it is not correct. No big deal. Deepest apologies if you were offended.

The site team has had to do a cleanup here due to multiple members (both Berkshire and non Berkshire owning members) not following the play nice rules. As a reminder here are some forum rules we were seeing violations of:

We take the "be nice" rule VERY seriously! We do not tolerate any rudeness.

Do not engage in personal attacks.

Trolling and cyberstalking are NOT allowed and are grounds for account restriction or banishment. Trolling on this board includes posting controversial and often irrelevant or off-topic messages with the intention of (or anticipated result of) baiting other users into an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal, harmonious on-topic discussion, especially when a pattern of such posting is apparent.

We will not tolerate bigotry in any form, including posts intended to incite expressions of such bigotry from others.
Do not take every opportunity to express your disagreement, incite argument, insult each other, or fan flames. Voice your opinion respectfully and then let it go.

More than one member in this discussion has been warned more than once about these arguments. The site team grows tired of this and will be issuing infractions/strikes for anyone continuing this kind of behavior.

We are hoping the OP can get some help so the thread is back open. We will close it if arguments occur again.

My next stop was Freightliner. They told me that normal Freightliner trucks do not have a chip key and that this is something that is done by the RV manufacture.

Talked to local Forest River dealer in neighboring town. They had never had a request for a spare key and had no idea how to get one.

My next call will be to Randy H.

Has anyone.replaced a key. How was it done and how much did it cost.

We have a 2016 Berkshire. I went to a key shop and had a ignition key and a door key made for about $3.00 each. (neither one had a chip or anything like that). They both work fine.
Good Luck with it.
