Old Cessnas used to all have similar keys. I instructed at one airport that I could use the same key to open two of the rental planes as well as the filing cabinet.
Towables keys seem to follow the same path.

BTW, we have safe places that we have a number of things stored... we usually figure out what that safe place is right after we get replacements.

I usually winterize my own trailer, but last season both of my local sources in the vicinity of the campground where I keep my trailer in Wisconsin had not yet received their shipments of antifreeze as it was still July and therefore there was no need to carry it in inventory. I had already blown out my lines with my compressor and just needed some to throw in the drains. The campground normally stocks it and was expecting their seasonal shipment in a couple of weeks so I left my keys for them to throw some antifreeze in my drains. (I'll be bringing my own antifreeze from now on!)

I used to store my TT at a warehouse storage and they required a key which is how I ended up with 4 sets.

I gave a set of keys to my wife who is normally quite meticulous about things like that thinking that if something happened to mine she was a sure bet to have hers. Well, that plan did not work out as she can't remember where she put them! As you say, three or four sets might be the way to go. Thanks

They'll probably turn up right after you get them replaced

So, yes, they should be the ones to deal with this, but I guess I'm getting soft and was just looking for a more amicable way of dealing with this. Thanks

Unfortunately my trailer is in Wisconsin and I'm down in Naperville, IL. I'll have to wait until next year before I go back up there again. I was hoping I could find a way of contacting Forest River to see if they have records of the keys.
Thanks!

Excellent on your part.

You're not soft, your human. Wish more people were this way.

Any dealer can get one or already has one. And do your self a favor get a few extra!! Good luck

As for the extra set of keys, I gave a set to my wife for "safe" keeping. Well, that did not work out as she can't remember where she put them. Your right, multiple sets are the solution...for the future.
