I have 12-14 locks on the compartments. I hate having to fiddle thru 3 or four keys to get to to the right key.

Keep in mind that I can open any compartment faster with a large flat blade screw driver than you can with your key. These locks keep honest people honest, but will not prevent a thief from getting in.

I just changed out all of mine last week. Single key opens all compartments.

I agree about locks keeping honest people out however, someone else mentioned that nobody would pay any attention to a dishonest person opening a compartment with a key. If someone was popping one open with a screwdriver I would hope that someone would notice.

I thought the purpose of the locks was only to keep them closed while traveling.

I changed my entry door and my compartment door locks and had all keyed the same so one key opens everything. I found this site helpful and inexpensive RVLocksAndMore | RV Locks | RV Keys | Fastec FIC Locks and Keys . As for people all having the same kry others are right any one can open those compartments no matter what you do, but lets take the temptation away from the honest people and as for the dishonest ones if they have a key they don't look suspicious opening things where as a guy walking around a CG with a screwdriver people are going to notice.
Think about things before you do them make life easier not harder.
