Different locks for each door

I just picked up my 2012 318BHS this weekend and was surprised to find that the two outside doors each have their own key. I thought they would be keyed the same but they aren't. Are other 318BHS owners finding this too? Are other model TT with two outside doors keyed the same or do they use different keys.

I transport Travel Trailers.. and 5ers.... most of the 2 door units....have 2 different sets of keys. (and another set of compartment keys )..they must just pick 2 doors off a line, when a rig is built.

You could get one re-keyed.

My 2009 Wildwood 27 FKSS had 2 doors and the same key operated ALL locks on both doors. Our new Lacrosse 303 RKS only has 1 door so, can't help on the newer units. Guess it depends on the manufacturer.

My 2012 318BHS also has separate key locks for each door. I just color coded one of them for easy reference.

Our new 2604 also has separate key locks,plus very hard to get the dang key in the keyway. This is the only thing so far that we don't like about our new RV.

Ours keys also don't work well. I'm going to buff them up to see if that helps. No reason why a key shouldn't work well.

The key # is on the inside of the lock on a piece of tape paper.

Our Cougar TT had different keys for each door. As far as the "rough" key...try Teflon spray in the lock. The slam-latch doors on our new 5th wheel were very rough. Little Teflon spray and they're super smooth.
