All I can do is pass information along agreeable or not . I don't mind disagreements or even arguments. I have thick skin these things happen in my line of work daily. Name calling is ok too..... except in a public forum when the written words that are used are against the forum rules and can get you in legal trouble in some areas the line is crossed.

Have a great 4th !!!!!!!!

There are three types of door knobs or levers, hall and closet (do not lock), bed and bath (lock but can be opened with a coin or factory pick) and the last is a keyed lock (type used on entry doors). I changed the factory installed hall and closet to bed and bath. I also installed lever style locks because they are easier to open by children and older adults. The pick for the lock hangs beside the door if needed. A child could just as easily lock the main door of the unit in the heat and the AC is not running the trailer will reach heats that can cause death in a short time. If I was to use your thinking then all the doors would not have locks.

Just happens much faster in a bathroom...... just a matter of a few minutes. Like I said earlier nearly lost our son by a bathroom lock when they came on RV bathroom doors years ago. Now for the most part you no longer see the locks on the bathroom doors coming from the factory.

You choise to take the risk or not. Just trying to prevent a child's death.

Our 2013 (Keystone) Passport came with a lock on the inside bathroom door but it unlocks as soon as you turn the knob from the bathroom side. We also have a door to the bathroom from the exterior, 9 times out of 10 it seems like the exterior door is locked whenever someone tries to use it for that reason I keep a key for the lock right next to the door in the outside kitchen.

I still don't understand the need for a lock. Everyone I know that would be in my camper respects another's privacy without having to lock a door. Same reason no doors are ever locked in our house.

Our bathroom has two entries, and I don't think either of them lock, but thank you for the information. As grandparents, we sometimes have to rethink how we camp when one of the littles is with us, so this is always a good reminder. Thank you Oaklevel for that reminder today.

Happy Independence Day, fellow RVers!

This weekend I removed the doors from my TT and tow vehicle. I have been getting some weird looks but the peace of mind is worth it.

Bingo....

We all can make the choice we want.
The bathroom is one of many places kids could get into trouble.
If it had been my kid, I wouldn't have been waiting for the Rv tech.. I could have been in, in 30 seconds.

One poster, mentioned the kids locking the main camper door.

What about the tow rig too?
What about the public toilet stall?

Lots of places.


It's nobody's business, how each of us raise our children.
Mind you own business. ( not to anyone specific)

Oak level. You made your point. No need to beat it any further.
