Regardless, I hope they never did much damage and that insurance covered what they did do...

WE got lucky, they only took the Flat Screen in the front and did not want the CRT type TV in the back. The Lot has cameras, gated entry, etc. None of the 3 rigs were trashed.

A lot of our motorhomes don't have "master keys", but instead, they use a "common" salesman's key. You should have a deadbolt which will not have a "master", and will secure the door. If all you're doing is locking using a Trimark lock, then you more than likely will be susceptible to someone else being able to gain entry. To check for yourself, just look for the number on the key and Google it. A lot of Trimark locks use the "CH751", "1099" and "2099" as common keys that will open doors and basement bays (they are even more susceptible to using common keys). On the other hand, if you have a deadbolt, such as a Schlage, then that will be the lock to use when you're away.

That is what I am talking about also. If you are talking about the lock that is in the handle then those do have salesmen keys. My bus has a schlage deadbolt lock that should not have a master key for it. I started rekeying all of my rental house locks. It tells how to do it on the net and the kit to do it with is 50.00. I use kwikset for that. Schlage uses a 6 pin tumbler and they have half size pins so more options for pins. If you have your schlage lock rekeyed you should not have to tell them no master key. The locksmith has to have the master key and the second key to determine the correct pins. A master key is just a lock with two pins in each opening instead of one. They make a shear line off of each cutouts in both keys.
