The simple solution is NEVER EVER LEAVE THE COACH WITHOUT A COMPLETE SET OF KEYS!

UNLESS ITS ON FIRE!

We only use the deadbolt lock. Works for us. I bet the dog was glad to see you.

Our door is locked from the inside by an electric switch. If locked the door cannot be opened from the inside without unlocking.

I have the storage bin key in a magnetic holder behind a support bracket for the propane tank. Not locked so easy to get at once you know where it is.
That gets me into all the storage bins and in one of those bins is hidden a door key in another magnetic box.
Then inside is hidden an ignition key.

So as long as I remember the locations of the two boxes outside ...

The hidden spare key is just a good idea, but the electric lock makes coming and going SO easy...and the lock doesn't have that second lock that locked the OP's wife outside (locking deadbolt only)...
BTW, the standard TriMark lock has that locking latch much more for dealers than customers...those locks are keyed to one of a couple master keys. Only the deadbolt is individually keyed to the RV.

Safe travels
What he was saying was that the LINK to the website wont work. Not the lock.

You typed https:// twice. So the link will not work.

Surprisingly, the wife was NOT very upset. When I asked her how long she was stuck out, and she told me "right after you left", I thought I was in for it, but she was cool about it.

We were more concerned with HOW she got locked out, and we set about experimenting to figure out what happened.

You have to love that (and her)

A couple years ago we were at a NASCAR track which has no electric or water hookups. Our site is only 100' from a water faucet. My wife wanted to take a shower and I told her to go ahead. I knew we were almost out in the fresh water tank but I headed out with a hose to refill the tank. She got in the shower and a few minutes later she was standing in front of the camper dressed with her hair full of shampoo and a real disgusted look on her face. On my way to the faucet I stopped at a campsite across the road
popped a brew and started talking. I guess I forgot where I was headed.
The look on her face reminded me quickly where I was supposed to be. I got where I belonged quickly and refilled the tank.
I was lucky. It only took an hour or so for my queen to settle down.
I make sure the tank is full at all times now.

I have a similar set up, or at least I did on my 2007 coach. The lockbox in the propane bin is a small magnetic combination box. It holds the key to the lower bins and in there is a key holder for both door keys. Once inside I have a spare set of keys for the coach. I still need to do this for my new coach though. Just need to get a spare, (another one) door keys.

We have a ford truck that we tow with and it had the keyless entry so we always have the spare set of keys inside the truck. Makes it nice when the kids go their way and I don't have to worry about them loosing the keys while they are out, but I do have to make sure they put them back when they are done with them.

We just use the deadbolt lock. In fact the regular RV door lock doesn't even work. Never has since we've owned this MH. Hiding a key somewhere outside would have it's benefits.

Great except what if you don't tow another vehicle?
