We keep our 2 MH door keys on those coil springy things that fit on your wrist. We lost a set and looked high and low for weeks. We searched every pocket of every piece of clothing in the RV. One day I put on a light jacket from the MH closet and there in the pocket were the keys. We both swear that we searched every pocket numerous times. We now blame lost items on the dog as she can't argue back or dispute the accusations.

Back in 2008 we lost a complete set of the original MH keys while in an RV Park in Fortuna, CA. We used to stop in about once a year to see if they were ever found. Finally stopped checking 2 or 3 years ago.

Agreed... However, what's the rule on that? Must I also replace the key fob remote before the old set turns up?

I lost mine for six months. Got the angle grinder out to cut off all the special locks on the trailer. Boot, Hitch lock, rear ramp loack, ball lock and the receiver pin lock. we lookin at $200 buck for locks. Got the cord out and plugged in. Went down to the trailer and reached down to pick up the angle grinder and grind of the rear ramp door locks.

Just at that moment the bright sunlight flashed on something shinny deep in the grass. Sure enough there was all my keys almost buried under the grass that I had been cutting for a few weeks. Must have lost them in the snow during the winter

I know you will find your keys. someplace

Mine were glinting in the sun, on the pavement, next to the driver door, of my red 911 Porsche at the San Jose Airport, where it had been parked for three days.

I could see them from the airport van as we entered the parking lot.......

If you have an Android phone, go to Google on a computer and type in find my phone to find that.
The Tile is a small thing that you put on your key ring. It works with an iPhone/iPad app and also with a web page app. You launch the app and you can get the Tile to play a musical tone, so that you can find it. You can also use the web app to find your iPhone, since I lose that as well.

I got one of these after spending an entire day looking for my keys. Apparently, they'd fallen behind my nightstand. Since I got it, I've realized how much time I've spent in the past few months looking for my dang keys.


P.S. I never lose my keys or my phone. They get up and wander off on their own.

Okay, I've got my keys, with the tile attached, app on my I-phone . . . . Tell me, exactly what do I do with the keys in order to find my I-phone? Or is that another app?

I know that you're being factious, but for those that don't know & are wondering what the answer to your question is, it's "Find iPhone" that is baked into the iOS operating system that comes with every iPhone. You must turn it on in Settings for it to work.

> lost a camera INSIDE my Geo Tracker

It's under the lift-up back seat or, to be odder, inside that compartment where the jack lives. Did I win? LOL

Good thing you had the Segways or were they locked in the van?

I know this doesn't really apply to OP's situation, but us humans are really funny I have found.
My good friend who has since passed once told me- one time he spent an hour stomping through the house, getting more irritated as time went on..... ultimately cussing and thrashing stuff around, all the while his wife was sitting on the couch reading. Finally she couldn't take any more of his fuming and racket and asked, "what the **** is wrong with you!?" He said, "I'm looking for my **** glasses!" She replied, "why don't you try looking on your FACE!"

True story, had 'em on the whole time! I've done stuff like that myself too. Funny and scary huh?

Good luck with the keys my friend, it sure can be frustrating.
W.D.

You know you are (old, tired or other status) when you cannot find the darn tool you are carrying around in your not common hand until you set it down to lift up something else to look under for what you are carrying...

"It took an hour to find the xx in my left hand..."
