As the old saying goes, locks are for honest people, they barely even slow down crooks.

I'd rather they open the lock then take a pry bar to the door.
A lock is there to keep honest people honest, a Thief doesn't care about a lock nor the door it's in. A screwdriver will open virtually any RV storage door about as fast as a key, but it tears up the door.

The difference being, any idiot will try driving away in nearly anything but the 'back of seat pucker factor' prevents most of them from seeing if actual flying is as easy as Flight-Sim makes it look.

RVs share same cabinet and door keys

I fly a 2008 Beechcraft B200GT for its owner. I was once on a trip and realized I had forgotten my keys. I don't need the keys to start the engines or fly the aircraft, but without them I could not lock the aircraft door. The aircraft was going to sit on the ramp at a busy Florida airport for two weeks! One of the line guys realized my predicament and offered to help. He took the key to his POST OFFICE BOX and easily locked the aircraft door!

This is a $6 million dollar aircraft, with a 99-cent lock on the door. Evidently our motor homes are built with the same level of concern for our security.

That is the Collins Pro Line 21Flight Management System...the exact same setup as in the Beech King Air 200GT I fly. It has a long learning curve. I've been flying behind this for several years and I'm still learning new things that it will do.

How hard can it be, you still only look a one thing at a time.

Military versions of the chevy pickup (M1008) and blazer (M1009) all used the same key.

The problem is how long (or not) you have to look at each, not how many things there are to look at.

About keys only keeping out honest folks, that's why I never lock the doors on my convertibles.
