2021 F-53 Chassis I Key Replacementgnition

I just purchased a new 2021 Georgetown GT5 Motorhome. The dealer lost the second set of keys and along with them, I have been trying to get a replacement key. I have checked with all of the Ford dealers in my area and a few dealers online and none of them have a part number for the replacement key. I have also called several locksmiths, and so far none of them can do side cut keys. Has anyone had this problem or have a fix? I am not comfortable with only one set of keys.

Call or visit a Ford truck dealer instead of a regular Ford auto dealer. They should be able to order you a replacement key that will work.

If that doesn't work call Ford Parts directly. They won't sell you one, but they can give you the part number for the replacement key.

I failed to mention that the Ford dealers I called were commercial truck dealers. When I mentioned a Ford F-53 that said they could not help with that. I reached out to Ford and they said they don't have part numbers, I would have to deal with the local dealers. I am at a stalemate.

You are in a fix then. I've never heard of a truck dealer that couldn't order a replacement key.

I would go back to the RV dealer and try to get them to replace the lost key.

Yes I agree and as you suggested, I am putting this back in the Dealer's lap. Thanks for your help.

Maybe this will help you find one that does motorhomes:

How to find a Ford dealer that may be able to work on your motorhome:

Go here: https://fordcommercialvehiclecenter.com/

Enter the zip code or city name where you are looking. A list will begin to display. Select the correct one by clicking on it.

Click on Advanced Filters + at the top center.

Click on MOTORHOME - CLASS A at the top right and click Apply at the bottom.

Several dealers will display (hopefully).

Click on More Information next to one and scroll down.

Near the bottom left you will see DEALERSHIP SERVICE BAY DIMENSIONS. Example:

DEALERSHIP SERVICE BAY DIMENSIONS
➤ OPENING HEIGHT: 14'
➤ INTERIOR BAY HEIGHT: 28'
➤ BAY LENGTH: 90'
➤ LIFT CAPABILITY (IN TONS): 20 TONS

I had the same issue. Trying to get the RV dealer to replace it was as useful as pounding my head into the wall.

I called the local Ford truck dealer and they ordered the blank and then laser cut it using my key as the pattern. It was pretty quick — It took longer to drive to the dealer than it did for them to cut the key.

I wanted to follow on this topic to let everyone know where I ended up. I followed everyone's suggestions and did not have any success with any Ford dealer. I also did not have any success when I contacted Ford directly. I just think Ford has not been proactive in supplying their dealers with a part number for the key blank. I called several locksmiths in my area and I found one locksmith that had the blanks and made me a key. The key worked fine and I am finally set. Just so you know the keys do not have a chip, it is just a standard key. Thanks everyone for all of your help.

Thanks for coming back and letting us know how it turned out. I'm glad you found a place that could "cut" you a key.
