...And the winner is...

Master Lock Push Button Portable Lock Box - For Life Out Here



Combination can be 4 to 16 characters, and I set it to what I want it to be. Has a plastic weather guard. Completely plastic coated so no rattling noises.

Mounted it under the propane cover with the key inside.

AND...

I already had to use it today! TWICE!

Not because I was locked out, but because I was out by the barn where we store it and the wife asked me to get something out for her, and I did not have the keys on my person.

Only $30, so no complaints.

Have one of these attached through a hole in the heavy steel propane tank bracket inside the compartment. Keep a spare door key and ignition key in it. Another full set of spare keys is also kept inside the camper.

Go to the depot and get a realtor lock box. They sell them there.

What i ended up getting is basically a realtor lock box, except the combination can be up to 16 characters long.

Sounds pretty secure to me.

We have this one too and it's been "used" a dozen times over the last 4 years....
We have it locked to the generator frame under the fron hood. The keys were getting wet and rusting so I drilled a few small holes to let water drain out and now it's good.

The version that mounts inside the hitch is probably the best option...unless you're using it to tow.

I ended up doing the exact same thing. I put the box on the sidewall of the propane compartment with screws and lock washers. I also called Lichtsinn RV in Forrest City and got two more of each door key and then I went to Lowes and got two Ford keys so now I have four sets of keys (except outside entertainment center - which I could have ordered 2 additional). I keep the door keys in the key box and the engine keys in the RV. That leaves me one set for use when traveling, one set in each of our two vehicles so if we go to the RV storage site we have easy to reach keys and don't have to access the key box. Having called road service for a lockout once I don't want it to happen again.

is your door lock a deadbolt type, meaning you have to use a key to lock it from outside? ours is (and no spring lock). both my wife and i keep a key. can't imagine both of us lose it at the same time .

Can I ask you wife? I'll wager her story will be much more interesting

Did that for years but DW thinks her purse is to heavy so she will leave the keys behind. I wish I could get her to leave her credit cards behind. Leaving a door key to the MH in the car glove box is the simpler option for me. (I leave the whole set there.)

We bought a keyless entry Bauer before we left Texas in June, and IT has already failed on us, as well. I noticed that the deadbolt was sorta just flopping around in there, and half the time when you would close the door, it would pop out halfway, making "others" slam the door several times, of course, doing more damage, and not actually causing it to latch.

I contacted Bauer, and we troubleshot it over the phone, and determined that the internal electric motor had failed, and they sent me a new one within warranty, and now it works again, but while it was not working, keyless entry was worthless.

Still kept a copy of the key inside the lock box.

On a side note, if you have to get a replacement from Bauer, you can request a specific key, so since we already had 6 keys to match the first latch, when they sent the new one with matching keys, we now have 8 keys that all work. I thought that was pretty cool of them!
