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!

Large flat head screwdriver and a hammer is all took to "pick" my lock when the cylinder broke. I was in quicker than trying to use my keys.

Coleman and other MfG's could make $ if they would only sell a factory setup, not sure why they don't, I guess Coleman likes selling those 1# Propane bottles, cheapest I can find them for is $2.25 each at Walmart and you can refill them!

BUT BY FILLING THEM YOU ARE BREAKING FEDERAL LAWS.... And I am SURE they are out looking for you! LOL

According to Coleman (email) it cannot be done because they use a HIGHER pressure than what the QD will provided so it will not work... Uh yeah... It sure does... And better I think..

Actually... you are not.
Refilling 'throw away' bottles has never been an issue.
Transporting AFTER REFILLING is against the law.
