I leave a window unlocked. Have had to use it only once.

I have a complete set of keys hidden and always accessible from the outside. But always leave a window unlocked just in case a lock won't unlock.

Same here. I know that compartment can't be locked, so I'll always have access to it. I have a full set of keys in the key safe. So I know that not only can we get in if we accidentally lock ourselves out, we can get home if we happen lose the keys.

Hitch Safe, Key Storage Hitches, Hide Car Key, Auto Key Safe, Trailer Hitch Covers, Receivers

It's either in the RV's hitch receiver or in the Toad's receiver if we're towing...holds a bunch more than just a key safe.

Plus, the driver's side window is unlocked if we are in the coach.

Safe travels

Key in propane compartment opens lower compartment where the door key is.Maybe overkill but my thinking is if they find key in propane compartment it will not open door.With seven storage compartments it would take a while to find the door key.

Great suggestions. The clincher was when i remembered we only have one side door period. Thus if the latch fails no key will help. Sooooo, it looks like an emergency key will maybe help and certainly make the problem likely easier, but if the latch fails, the unlatched window will be the final solution.

Terrible feeling

Had this happen last week at camp with daughter. Wife at work, I'm cooking bacon for us, and daughter accidentally let dog out off leash and we run out after dog. Door slams and locks and wife has extra keys at work!! Mine are in motorhome. Bacon is burning and no open windows!! Decision time. I looked in window and there is a flame rising out of pan. Looked on ground and saw hatchet and grabbed it and busted side window out and boosted daughter in just in time before fire got out of control. Progressive insurance is replacing $1500 window instead of replacing motorhome. It was a terrible feeling. Extra set hidden outside now.

l have a rubber band holding up the lock button in our unit. Since we always use the dead bolt the other lock isn't ever used.

Have a good day - Darrel
