Trimark Locks on basement storage

I have read on other forums that every RV have the same locks and keys for the storage compartments. I have a 2017 34PA and not sure if the Trimark key set for the storage is just made for my coach or every Trimark lock. Would like to know, in case, I need to change them for added safety for the basement storage.

Iíve had Trimark locks on last two coaches. The keys were different. That said, Iím not sure that there is a whole lot of diversity in the keys.

Only keys that are the same are on the lower line coaches. They are the CH751. When I got an extra set for my Tiffin I had to order them online from a lock shop.

Go to an RV dealer and try your key in their locks - that should answer your question.

You made a comment about changing your locks.
Note that if you install new locks then you'll likely have the same issue.
I would expect that the only way to make sure you've got a unique key would be to have an locksmith come over and rekey all of your locks to some random change he decides to makes (all locks on your rig keyed the same, of course).

If you really want to secure your basement, changing your locks won't really help. Afterall, a good crowbar and your door is open. Locks are deterrents only.

If you want to change your locks, you should see if TriMark locks can be re-keyed with just a cylinder change. If they can, then order enough for your coach and you will have a coach that uses a different key code.

Keyed the Same...

When the coach was delivered, I had three different Trimark key codes - one for the door lock, one for the deadbolt, one for the compartments. Kind of a PITA, but similar to other coaches. The deadbolt was defective, and low and behold, when they replaced the deadbolt the key code was suddenly the same as the compartments! Probably pure dead luck, but darn handy.

On the other hand, I never lock my compartments or coach even in storage. After twenty five years in law enforcement, I can guarantee you if someone wants in they will get in. In the process they will do much more damage than what they will steal. Some friends had over $15,000 dollars in damage to their new Allegro entry doors while in storage. The thieves couldn't figure out how to remove the TVs, so all they took were the remotes.
