Help me solve my key mystery.

My new (to me) 2019 T21TBHW came with two purple door keys. I assumed they were duplicate keys. I was wrong. It turns out they are not identical.

One key unlocks the main folding entry door. There is no part number of any kind on that key. On the door lock itself there is a 'M' stamped adjacent to where you insert the key.

The second key is clearly marked. Global Link G327. Unfortunately I cant figure out what lock that key is for.

My biggest concern is not having a back up key for my door. Can anyone tell me how to go about ordering a duplicate key for my door if there is no key number to reference?

Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?

is the second purple key for your "travel door"? when we had our popup it had a different key for the outside storage, cassette, travel door, outdoor shower and then the main door. the travel door is the little half door that you have when the camper is folded up.

my door lock (top) and deadbolt (bottom) were keyed differently. Do you have both? Have you tried each key in both cylinders?

Second key looks like the famous 751 key that most RVs have for their compartment doors.

Most locksmith shops can cut a duplicate key.

My thought would be to take the out of the door. There is probably a key code on the lock itself.

OP stated second key is purple as well, not the 751 in the pic.

My local Ace Hardware duplicated my entry key. No trouble at all for them.
As far as the other one, throw it away. It’ll become clear soon afterwards where it fit.

On some A-frames (not all!), Forest River uses a separate key for the outside shower. On others, Forest River installs the CH 751 lock on the outside shower. I've had one of each.

Here is a photo of both of my keys. (this photo should have been in my initial post) I'm looking to get a duplicate the key on the left.

That's interesting. I have 2 purple keys for my trailer as well but I also have 2 doors.

Did you buy from a private seller or a dealer? Maybe they would know?

any locksmith can make those keys for you, whether or not it has a number on it.

Any way to contact them to see if they know where the keys go?

the 327 is the "new version" of the 751, only its used on clamshell slam door latches.
the other one with the M looks like your door key. your door has 2 locks. The door lock is setup so master keys will work. but the deadbolt uses the same key but will not accept a master key.

I would call RV Locks and More for advise.

The purple keys are GlobalLink lock keys from the Global Link Keys (Precut G301-G390) series. A replacement key can be acquired from RV Locks and More at www.rvlocksandmore.com/Global-Link-Bitted-Keys.

You will need a key code which start with a letter “G”. The code may be on the inside of the door or there may be a code inside the lock if you remove the cover on the inside of the door.

I assume you entry door has two keyed locks/cylinders. The top lock as stated has an “M” stamped, for “Master Lock”, on the front of the lock cylinder. This is the only key/lock most people use. This lock can be opened by the Global Link RV MK9901 Master Green Key. For the convince of Forest River, every RV transport hauler, every dealer, and many RV parks, Forest River uses this key so that one key can open any trailer. This key can be purchased on eBay by anyone. Not great security from my perspective.

The bottom lock, if you have one is for the deadbolt which is specific to one of 90 keys.

If you cannot find a key code, you can use RV Locks and More’s Rekey program which enable you to rekey your locks for $10 plus the new lock cylinder and key.

To protect your property I recommend you replace the lock cylinder with the stamped “M” to one without a stamped “M” so only one of 90 keys will work in your lock.

If both locks accept the same key blank, then just take one of the locks out and take it to the local locksmith and ask him to re-key it so the other key works. I did this on a residential lock a couple of months ago. They did it while I waited and charged $11.00.
