Locks only keep honest people out. If someone really wants to get into your compartments, it wouldn't take much time/effort no matter what lock and key(s) you use.

I agree with Iwritecode ... it's been a well known chuckle around the campfires for years and years about the storage compartment locks having maybe 3 different possible keys. The locks are there to keep honest people honest ... a large screwdriver or trim carpenter's prybar and about 20 seconds will get you in to about anybodys storage areas no matter what lockset you have installed.

X2! Great people. Even helped me fix my mistake at no charge!

I agree about dishonest people using a screwdriver or crowbar to open your compartment but that would draw more attention to themselves than someone walking up to your unit pulling out a key and walking away with something valuable.

I was camping and forgot some things I usually bring. No problem, I just used my keys on the RV next to me and borrowed some needed things.

I'm kidding.

Thanks, I checked Rvlocksandmore.com and I see you pick one of 50 key codes. I don't believe my entry lock is a compatible one. So how did you pick your key code 1-50. BTW, that's better than 1 out of 1!. I see my outdooor TV is South.com, similar to the CH571, but not the same number. The key looks cheap.

Honestly, there have been a few times where I'll just borrow my parents keys to open a door on my trailer or my keys on theirs. Luckily they have a site 2 away from ours.
