Overhead Bunk Lockout
In the FR3, as well as every other motorhome we looked at from many different manufacturers, the overhead bunk always had a lockout with a key. Some had a similar setup for the slide-outs as well.
Does anyone know why every manufacturer is doing this for the overhead bunk?
Is there a DOT regulation?
Is there a concern that I am missing?
I look at the key as one more thing that can go wrong. They key can fall out, accidentally get removed, get misplaced one way or the other.... I am wondering if I can just open the panel and bypass the key.
Has anyone done this?
Does anyone know of a reason not to?
