Thanks for sharing this. With only the two of us we don't bother with locks. (After 37 years there are few surprises left) but with a grandchild now there is a whole new world before us. Thanks for the info. Happy Fourth of July to all of the members south of the border.

Everyone do what you want........ my point is there is a reason the locks are no longer on RV bathroom doors they where they were at one time years ago. A small child may be in your RV when you are not, a child a grandchild, a neighbor, a friend.

The RV may not be in use, they know what a bathroom is but may not know how to get out. It may be 95 degrees............. you may find them when its too late.... We nearly lost our son he is going to be 28 in a couple weeks ........ I am so glad to say that instead of he would have been.......... we were too close....... If we had not been right there......... It only took a few minutes to get up well over 100 degrees........


Please don't be the one that says it won't happen to me it is not possible I talk to those people all the time........ I guess it comes with investigating accidents and fatalities.

Argue I don't care just trying to save someone the heart ache.

I do feel like the people telling people not to leave their child in a hot car......they still do it anyway............ its the same...........

Please have fun don't ruin your vacation or your life.....

My brand new one has a lock on it. Of course...the factory installed the knob backwards and it's only good for locking people IN at the moment.

Very 1st thing I did was put a lock on bathroom door. Has worked great with no problems. The lever type that unlock when you push down on it. Many campers come standard wit lockable handles. So no lock on the main door either?.....lol ridiculous

Read what jtstrom wrote. So simple. Buy a bathroom lock that can be unlocked from the outside.

I was joking above, but I'm at a loss what y'all are trying to hide........

Heck fire, schools all over California, and who knows where else, are requiring all bathrooms to be non-gender-specific. And no locks on those doors. An RV surely has no more than 2 or 3 adults, and maybe a few kids. Which one of those are so demanding that they get to use the bathroom with a LOCKED door????

Why?

Our sliding bathroom door barely close tightly........much less not lock! I couldn't possibly care less.

What are y'all worried about here? What problem are these unsafe locks fixing????

Any child young enough to not know how to open a locked door should never be left unsupervised. If they are supervised and get injured then it's not the fault of having the lock.....it's the fault of whoever was supposed to be supervising the child. Just last week an individual was arrested and charged for letting a very young child wander away and drown at Ft. Yargo (GA) State Park.
