Keys for forest river 5th wheel

ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA where we can get our key to our FR 5th wheel door made? We tried a few camper places here in Port St. Lucie, Florida, but no one carries them. Tried Lowes and Home Depot as well.

Need advice....

You could try sending a PM to 'wildcat chris'. It may have to be ordered through the factory by VIN.

Edit: I imagine the problem is getting the right blank.

A quick google search for locksmiths brought up Tri-county lock and key and some others.

Our locksmiths here in Denver are quite good maybe they are as well.

A locksmith is the correct answer especially if you can pull to their shop. I think mine cost me $12 including the battery compartment key.

I thought there were only like 5 travel trailer keys in the entire universe.

My three trailers all use the same key.

I ordered extra keys from my dealer and he picked them up at FR.

You can also order them on line. If you have access to the inside of the trailer, take the screws off the back part of the door handle. Inside you will see a label with your key number on it.

Take that number to the locksmith and they should be able to cut according to the code number. Or try other dealers and see if they have the key.

Good luck.

Also forgot to mention that if you are not in a hurry you can order the keys online according to the code number. If it is just a spare key you are looking for, then you will see the 3digit code number on your original key.

If you need a replacement lock set and keys, let me know and I will send you one. My trailer has two entry doors so I bought matching locksets so my keys match. That is contingent upon you having access to remove a lockset.....lol.
