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!)
So your keys are probably in their antifreeze closet!

The lost keys were a result of one of them being in the process of losing their memory, which is a sad thing to experience. Had his mind been a little clearer I'm sure he would have volunteered to take care of everything, but the fact is he is a little confused. Hence, I was looking for a low cost solution so that I would not have to confront them with the cost of replacing my locks. 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
I appreciate your compassion today more than I would have 10 years ago. At the age of 67, I'm frustrated that I can't remember WHERE I PUT MY ________________! Today I'm on the look-out for an LED flashlight and a family heirloom adjustable wrench! Now where did I put them?

One of the reasons I keep a spare key in the truck is that I will always have the truck when I'm using the TT. If I get locked out of the truck I can call AAA easily.

I'm almost the same age and I know what your talking about. I can imagine how frustrating it must be for the aforementioned campground owner who has got to be getting close to being 90. I admire the guy for trying to keep his business going at that age.

Yep! That's the ones I gave the campground owner assuming my wife had the other set. Opps!

My wife put her set of keys to the 02 Caddy up when we left for the rally last year in late July and while we were on our trip, we ended up buying the old 96 junker. We gave the 02 to our oldest son and I ask TOWTA where her set of keys were. She is still to this day trying to find them, so oldest son only has one key and a remote. I guess they'll find her set when they clean the house out after we pass.

To add insult to injury to my saga, I just got back from Wisconsin last Tuesday and as we pulled in the driveway my wife tells me that she forgot her keys to her car in a drawer in the trailer. Why she brought them...? Next question; only set? Yep, she lost the spare set along with her infamous missing set of trailer keys. So last Wednesday I got to drive back to Wisconsin to get her keys. What a fiasco!

I thought I was losing my mind. Posts 22-30 had some repeats going on.

It all makes sense, I guess, on what the OP did with the keys. There are not enough people in the world that have soft hearts like that.

I keep telling myself that I'll be old one day. I hope somebody has patience with me when I get(more) confused about things.

Hope things work out.

P.S.

I have a door key hid in a magnetic box somewhere on my TT frame.
Not telling where. Hope I remember where I put it.

I wonder if one from a 3D printer would work the lock and could be carried in your wallet without breaking?

I thought about buying one of those combination lock key boxes to install on our 5er, but what if I forget the combination?

OC describes it well; CRS=can't remember ...ummm...stuff
