Outdoor shower

Hey all,

We just recently purchased our trailer and have taken it out once. Not for real camping tho...as it sat outside a house to provide us a sleeping space. We are planning to take it out soon for it's maiden camping voyage here in a week, but I can't figure out what key opens the outdoor shower?!? We have the A128. Is it the same key as something else?

Unless they've changed the locks the shower door key only fits the shower door. We got three black-headed keys with ours; one for the entry door, a second that fits the storage compartments, and the shower door key. Ours doesn't have the large front storage hatch, so maybe the newer ones have more keys.

It's not the smoothest lock in the world to get the key into, so maybe you have it and it's just not cooperating.

The black key shown below opens the outside shower. I changed the lock as quickly as I could to a latch that had no key at all.

Where did you get the new latch? Sounds like a good idea.

And...it did open. Apparently the people we bought it from never opened it up, as the key was still in the owners manual folder.

I put a cabinet latch on mine. You can see it in the surveyor forum in the tp mod thread. (Sorry I don't know how to do links)

Thank you! I'll have to get one of those and switch it out.
