Funny you mentioned this....we were in the farthest campground you can drive, Teklanika, in Denali Nat'l Park, Alaska and the lock on our door was jammed. Luckily we had an unlocked window right over the couch, we carried a ladder and soon gained access to the inside. However, we did warn the surrounding neighbors so they didn't think we were breaking in! There was absolutely no calling a locksmith there.

Of the 5 RVs we have had most of them have had the same storage keys.

I only lock them while traveling. They stay unlocked when we're parked at a CG. I'd rather replace the compartment stuff than the compartment doors with the associated problems of paint mismatch, etc.
Don't have anything of real value in the compartments anyway. Like another member said, the stuff in the compartments would cost less to replace than the insurance deductible.
Although, after reading the post about kids messing with the wet bay stuff, I'll probably start keeping that one locked.

Leave one window unlocked is a good idea. I had a door lock break internally in a locked position. Had to drill a hole in the window casing, jimmy the lock, and then crawl through the window with some tools to take the lock apart. I got no heaving help from the DW though!

Our windows are closed, one is unlocked. Automatic/remote door locking mechanisms, like anything mechanical and electrical do fail.
