Ordered a new door lock after seeing how ridiculously easy it was for the locksmith to pick it. I'm not talking skilled insert the pick and feel for the tumblers picking...I'm talking about vigorously rubbing the pick back and forth over the tumblers til you can move the lock kind of picking.

So I looked into getting a replacement key for the one that I snapped off. Did you know that the lock that comes with most trailers only has 50 keys? Did you know you can order a set of all 50 of these, or that if you can prove you are a dealer get a universal master key (I assume you could buy that from an unscrupulous dealer without proof).

Holy smokes!

I ordered a new lock with 900 key possibilities that requires matching the keys to the serial number of the lock. $35, part TTL-43900-2006 from RVLocksandmore.com. No master keys exist.

Hopefully it will also prove to be a bit more difficult to pick. I'll certainly have more peace of mind knowing that my neighbors RV key will no longer have a good chance of opening my door!

I would rather just let them walk in and take what they want as opposed to prying the door apart and destroying the door frame.Insurance can/will replace stolen items quicker than major surgery on the coach,especially in the summer when we want to be useing it.All that being said,we have never locked the camper over the almost 50 yrs we have been camping,and never lost a thing.

Was always told that locked doors only keep honest people honest!

Lol, don't know what Turbs looks like but this crew was literally off the beaten trail, if they would have flipped it would not have been good especially hanging on the side holding the roof, not a good site, it was in Timberland Lake Campground in Cream Ridge NJ, not sure Turbs would be seen there...lol

It's not my camper, except that we will not be using it for awhile. I head in for back surgery tomorrow... again. Always appreciate a prayer or two if you are so inclined.
thanks

With our trial period of fulltime in progress we found that leaving the range light on every night might be an issue... picked these up at walmart today. About 6 bucks for a pack of 2, added to bathrooms, kids bunkhouse and kitchen. Easy plug in, head rotates 180, light sensor, warm white led. Perfect amount of light now.
