Lost storage bin key

Like an idiot, I've lost the key to my outside storage compartments. It's a 2014 Leprechaun. Can someone please confirm if it's a ch751 please? Thanks for the help.

If at a camp ground see if one of you other campers have one to try.

I am not. I'm trying to pack for a trip, so this is a bit of an impediment. :-)

Pretty near 98% of campers use the ch751. Make a friend in the neighborhood and stop by someone that has a camper and ask if you can borrow theirs. That or if you are close to a RV Dealership, I'm certain they have them in the service department as all replacement locks come with multiples.

Unless you changed it, there's a 99 percent chance that it's the infamous 751 key

The big front door under the pin box on my Wildcat is a CH751 but the pass through doors on either side are R001 keys.

Thanks guys, sounds like a great chance it's a 751. We do have a camping world so I bet they have one.

ours uses the R001 key. you should be able to get either one locally or on ebay.

Mine is not the same model, but it is a C26261. My 751 is for the fuel station and outside shower. A friend's is the 751 for the storage. I swear they have a big box of locks and use no rhyme or reason as to what they use where. Should be simple to at least match the feont and rear entry doors for Petes sake.

Cheaper on Amazon than eBay

CH751s were 10 for $8.00 on Amazon, more expensive on eBay. If the OP isn't sure, he could get some CH751s and some R001s with 2-day Prime delivery.

CH751 is the standard key. Prolly pick up a few from Homedepot.
When you get the chance get barrel lock replacements, if you have any thing in your compartments that you want to keep.



And yes we all know that any compartment can be force open with a screwdriver made of jello but locks are to keep the honest man honest.


Happy Camping

Darqman, my slam latch locks don’t use the CH751 key so if your MH’s compartment doors have slam latches they probably don’t use the CH751 either. The only thing on my 5er that uses the CH751 is the flimsy outdoor shower door.

as everyone else has said if its a standard compartment lock its going to be a 751 unless its a baggage door.

with that being said i replaced all of those with locks that are the same as my door from rvlocksandmore.com and just saw that they have my baggage style locks/handles that i can order with my door key number also. My wife and i each have a key on our keyring and keep a spare in the car just incase.

Good idea!
With our baggage door locks being keyed to multiple users and Dealership failing from repairing broken locks we removed the lock tumblers and made our own keys. Wife and I now have unique keys.

Similar.... My outside kitchen and outside shower doors are the CH751 while my front "trunk" pass through doors are the R001. My door latch and dead bolt are keyed alike with a unique key, so I have 3 total keys for my Coachmen Apex.

I do keep all 3 together on a single sturdy key ring and I use a neon green keychain FOB to help make it easy to see no matter where it gets placed.

Dargman, were you successful getting the correct key?

Yes, they were 751's. But I'm replacing them all with Combi-Cams so I don't have to go through this again.

Our compartment lock keys were G3 something and different keys for both, what a pain.
Happy Dealership wasn't able to repair the locks even though they said they did.
I pulled the lock tumblers on both and keyed them alike with a unique key.
No longer 1 in 3 able to open them with a key. Screwdriver is another story....haha. Like someone here said, "it's only to keep the honest honest"
I am not a licensed Locksmith by any means. Took a course many years ago and know a few tricks. Say's a lot for our RV builder and Dealership.
