Getting Accessories For Your MH

1.) Where do you go to get your MH keys made?

Do you have to go to a MH dealership?

2.) Where do you get those HUGE sun shades that you see in the windshield?

Keys, anywhere like lock smiths, Home Depot.
Shades, you need to be more specific.

A REAL locksmith can usually find the correct blank and cut it. Most big box stores won't have all the correct blanks.

Roll of reflectrix from a big box home improvment store, cut to fit.

Google up HeatShieldStore.com. Custom fit heat shields for just about anything, and they will make custom fit to order.
Using their product for about 3 years now, and they really do work.
Install from inside so during lousey weather you stay nice n dry.

Have to watch with some of the newer RVs. MHs need a chip key for the ignition

Tried both Lowe's and Home Depot and finally ACE. None had the correct key blanks. Found a local locksmith that cut the keys in less than 10 minutes.

Moxxi,

If you are talking the entrance door key or a key to the basement storage, engine compartment, these can all be made at Camping World or an RV dealership normally. We needed both and got them at CW.

The engine key we had made at a Ford dealership because the engine is a Ford. Had a extra one made while we were at it.

The sunshades we had made on site while camping in FL. Where are you located? I can give you her info if you are there. Just PM me.

We had ours made and they made a huge difference with heat inside as well as privacy. During the day it was easily 10* cooler with full on sun. During the day they could not see in from outside. At night with lights on inside you can see inside.

We love them. I am sure you can do a google search for sunshades for RV's wherever you are and find someone or ask in a CG.

Good luck, Lynne

Camping World could not make any of the keys (ignition, basement compartments, both door locks). Ended up going to a local locksmith.

CW did have a sunshade for the windshield.

Youíre right.
That sunshade really knocks the temperature down during the daytime.

For windshield shades I can't say enough good stuff about my MagneShade sunscreen, of course I travel solo about 1/3 of the time, and the ability to put it up and take it down by myself is important to me. https://magneshade.com/ it may not be the cheapest, but quality often cost more.

Go to a real locksmith for keys. Trimark keys are very hard to find anywhere other than a locksmith.

If you are in the Tampa area I recommend ARO Lock and Key in New Port Richey, very nice lady.

I had heard Camping World could cut keys, stopped in no joy. The service manager sent me to ARO.

If you have the key code off of the original tri-mark key, you can order them laser cut online for fairly cheap (2 for $10) or so on ebay, seach, trimark code cut key.
