If you are lucky you left a window somewhere unlocked and can climb in.

I disabled the latch lock and only use the deadbolt to lock the door on the rare occasion I bother locking the door. We have a dog that stays behind in the motorhome so we usually leave it unlocked in case something goes awry while we're out. I don't think I've ever locked my compartments and I keep a spare door key in one compartment just in case..

I know that doesn't help your present situation but something to consider in the future. I suppose where you camp could impact your decision regarding locking the door.

If you didn't leave a window unlocked somewhere you almost have to call a locksmith.
When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Congrats on the new rig! You have learned a valuable lesson. Always keep another set of keys somewhere else! Keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

We had lost the key to our camper at home once. (long story). The door was unlocked so I took the lock off and took it to a locksmith. The dude made a new key for it in about two minutes. of course the conversation turned to wow, so any lock you can open and make a key that fast....yep...be glad I'm honest and don't rob houses. So, any good locksmith can make you a key in moments. he charged me like 15 bucks to create and make 6 keys. Mobile I'm sure would be more but not anything like replacing the lock. They are expensive.

How far are you from your dealership, they may have a key that can unlock it. I would give them a call and see if there's any way they can help you. If not a locksmith can do it in a few minutes.

They use generic keys. A serial number and a call to Newmar should tell you which key number it is and a locksmith can make one from that.

Is there an RV close by. There are only a few different keys. Most likely someone with a nearby RV has the same key. I've opened several for folks at CP grounds
