That's a good idea, too

I'm using that in my favor on the off chance I lose the key to get in the door of my 5er. I have strategically placed a door key inside one of my compartments, and if it came down to it I can borrow a neighbor's key to open said compartment and retrieve my door key.

I hang a set in my water heater compartment. I do not have that locked. You are never going to stop a person who wants to steel something but If I get locked out or my wife we know where we have a set. They are just hanging on a tie rape, but you really need to look if you do not know where, and by that time I would hope that my neighbor would see someone strange and call someone. Campers got to look out for each other. Been doing this forever.

I learned a long time ago that locks only keep honest people honest and if someone wants in they will get in no matter what you do! With that being said I only lock the TT and TV when we are leaving them for extended periods of time. I have never had any problems camping as campers do watch out for one another.

The combo key box in the propane compartment is a brilliant idea.

We replaced our compartment keyed locks with the combination style locks. When I need to hide a set of keys (like when we go swimming) I put the spare keys in the compartment, spin the combination dial, and go have fun. Then I know that none of us has to keep up with a set of keys!
