Lost Keys

I knew this would happen, but we've lost our main set of keys... or "temporarily misplaced them"... All is fine because we have a spare set with the exception of the chrome wing type key that latches and unlatches the hood for access to the generator etc. Was wondering if these are just standard issue and I can get one at Camping World or other supply place. Anyone know?

I don't really know the answer, but I have the same kind and wondered about that myself because I only have one and am very careful with it, so as not to lose it. I think that there are a lot of them out there the same and have to be available somewhere. Possibly from most manufacturers. John H....

Its probably available - they are fairly standard. But you could always rder one from Fleetwood or any Fleetwood dealer. An online order from Sullivan's RV is real good for that sort of thing. Theyare a Fleetwood dealer in Decatur, IN and real close to the Fleetwood parts warehouse, so can get anything quickly. Nice folks to do business with too.

A good lock smith has those blank rings and can make a duplicate with the original. A locksmith may be able to pick the lock, and once unlocked you can change the locks out.

Good luck.

I lost a full set of keys last year. I had 3 duplicates of every key that they could copy. I now guard the other full set and use only the duplicates unless I need to access the generator.

The barrel key is very common. 90% of all the coaches use the same key. They are a little more secure than a thumb lock. Lock smiths and RV service centers should be able to help you get a replacement.

That big key is very likely a standard key you can get at Campign World.

However, and this applies to every vehicle out there, Cars, Motorcycles, Trucks, Motor Homes, Even farm tractors and bulldozers. EVERY VEHICLE WITH A KEY.

If you go to an authorized dealer, and take your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) (NOTE: This appears on your registration and title, in fact You should take them with you since you need to prove ownership)

The dealer can make you a brand new set of keys.

Short story.. I'm a very good B&E Auto man, I've only had 3 so far that stumped me.. One was a Chevy Pick up truck.. I took the owner, who had the registration in his pocket, to my Chevy dealer, He handed over his license, registration and 20 bucks, they handed him back his license, registration two dollars change and a new key for the door.. (Ok,, it was not qutie that fast they had to look up the code, and cut the key but it was only a couple of minutes)

A locksmith (his keys were locked inside the truck) would have set him back 80 bucks or more.
Home is where I park it!

All it is is a triangular shaped hole that fits onto the triangle shaped shaft.It should be available in any well stocked RV dealer.
