Apparently it is important to some to have locks on their doors....... while trying to help and pass along possible safety hazards, I get called an idiot and something worse on another thread so............... Take the information and go on really ?????

But what if there is not someone there to unlock it from the outside..........
Thanks for that important little tidbit.

The first thing I did with our RV was put a lock on the bathroom door. We are all adults and we can unlock the door from the outside using a small tool so it's not a problem for us. However, if I had a child young enough to be able to lock the door by himself, or herself, I would know where that child was at all times. More of a hazard is the exterior ladder that is on the rear of lots of RVs. A child could climb up there and fall off of your roof and you would have no knowledge of it until it happened. I have never had an exterior ladder due to this hazard.

I was told Coachmen quit putting ladders on from the factory for that reason.

I bet the reason they stop installing locks is because the knobs without
locks are cheaper

10 years ago I was selling a motorhome for a family member. The prospective buyers, a young couple, arrived and entered the coach. While talking to them, I heard footsteps on the roof! They went outside and began yelling at their kids to get off the roof! I was horrified. This was obviously a problem with a lack of parental supervision, but I am glad none of my trailers has had a roof ladder. You don't know what unsupervised children might do when your RV is parked where they can get to it.
