I keep a spare set of everything in my truck. Should the truck and house or camper be locked I use the number pad on the F250 doors to open the truck and get the spare keys.

First thing we did was make 2 extra sets of keys. One set stays in the van, the other set is hidden in the pass through. Extra pass through key is in magnetic holder under trailer. My sister and I have both had dogs play games with the locks and windows in the past so now we want to be sure we're prepared! cincia

I have been to several places that make keys and none can make an ignition/door key for my Chevy 4500 Express Van chassis. I am trying to avoid going to a Chevy dealer figuring the cost will be astronomical.

Glad to read you have a spare key. We do too and I have more than one set of them. I keep a set in my truck, and in a lockbox that I can chain to the camper frame and the lock box is a combination lock. We got locked out once on the Alaska Highway back in 2002 and we had to sit outside in the cold for most of a day while we waited for road service to come from about 250 miles away. Ever since that we always have extra car/truck and camper keys in hiding spots.

My Ford has the "key pad" on the outside of the door that unlocks it with the right code. And yes, I've had to use it. Terrier trouble! Assumes you can remember the code!!

Spare keys are a must. We have been locked out of our TV by our dog and out of the RV by our Grand Kids twice.

That's Comical!

I often thought the same ( accidentally locking me out, that is ) when leaving my dog in the truck when it's running. Thankfully, I learned it cannot be locked when running. Ha Ha....the jokes on her, unless she learns how to shut the truck off. Then, of course, she just may be plotting against me when I take her to the store and she notices I come out empty-handed without her dog treats.

Gotta love our furby pets!

Our lab likes to roll the windows down and lock the doors of the truck too. We found some nice side curtains that fit into the window ledge and covers the door and buttons. She can't see to step up on the arm rests now and the door stays cleaner too.
