My Dog locked me out of my Silverback

One morning we were preparing to pack up the trailer and left our dog inside while we did some prep outside. We left the trailer keys on the kitchen counter. Just as I was going to open the trailer door she jump on the door hitting the internal lock and locked us out. As I was beginning to stress how to get in the trailer I remember I hid a spare key when we first bought the trailer. Never thought I would use it. I just thought I would share this weird incident, makes me think of other backup plans.

We have a backup set in my truck when we go camping just in case the kids do something like this.

We also keep a backup set outside the RV, just in case something happens.

Our small puddle has done same thing, we sometimes leave F350 running with air on for the dog and come back to find all the windows down. I made some small inserts to put under the buttons to keep her from pushing them down.

My camping buddy had his dog in truck, engine running, A/C on. While hitching up, the dog locked his truck doors. We were an hour pasted check out on a 90 degree day trying to get in.

Our Lily has locked us out of the truck before! Luckily the air was on and we just had to wait for AAA. If the air wasn't on- we'd have had to break a window.

We have to drive around with the child locks on because she likes to randomly roll down the windows when you're going down the interstate.

My wife has labeled me 'anal' when it comes to "keys".
I have spare keys for the 'spare keys'.

Wouldn't you know that I have not had the chance to call upon them
for the causes as listed above....and we do have a dog.

But.... I'm ready

We have two sets of keys and the rules are that no one has both sets of keys. I personally do not set my keys down, they are always in my pocket or clipped to my belt loop. If I get out of the truck to check something the window is rolled down and left open. Of course this has no bearing on what a dog will do to the controls.

I used to use magnetic spare key holders. Several years ago I switched to a nylon pouch with a velcro sticky strip. Clean the surface well with alcohol and you can be very creative where you hide your spare.
