3 doors... 3 sets of keys?

We just took delivery of our 3006 windjammer. The sales guy handed me 14 key rings with about 172 keys on them... (ok... maybe a little exaggerated)

You cant tell me that Ive got to bring 3 sets of keys for the doors....

We have 6 different keys for our coach. 1 for the ignition, 1 for the Driver's Door, 1 for the dead bolt and 1 for the regular door lock on the entrance door, 1 for all the compartments and last a goofey looking one for the hood, trunk and battery access under the steps. We actual received 2 ignition keys, 2 Trunk Keys, 2 Driver's door keys, 4 entrance door keys, 2 deadbolt keys and more than a dozen compartment keys. I think every lock must come with 2 keys. Check the numbers on the keys. You probably have a ton of extras like we do.

One thing you won't have to worry about is losing all your cargo door keys. If you managed somehow to do that just about everyone else in the campground will have one you can borrow!

I was miffed when we bought our 625D pop-up. Three different keys. One for the front door, one for the cargo holds (751), and one for the outside shower (gotta lock down those showers ???).

So we have a key to the cargo holds that EVERYONE and his brother has (useless). A key to the front door, when I can simple pull apart the velcro and move the latch (useless) and a key for the outside shower (again useless). I'd just as soon have a slot that I could use a coin to open the latches.

Welcome to the club!!
I have 5 different ones.
Front door, rear door, storage hatches, shower cover,
hitch pin.
I painted the plastic on front door keys so we can
quickly tell one from the other.
(Fingernail polish works great for this!)

I guess we are lucky we only have one door to get in. so we have 1 door key, 1 for the shower and of course the 751 for the outside storage. this year I had an extra entry door key made and put it on the truck key ring.

For those that are "worried" about their 751 storage door key, just about every dealer accessory department sells replacement lock assemblies with unique keys - and a simple swap out.

I have the same issue with too many keys. This morning while driving into work there was a discussion on my local radio station for great fathers day gifts. One item they discussed was a product called a "Keyport". I looked it up on the internet at keyport.com and it looks like a solution to this problem.

That looks pretty cool.
