Spare Keys For Basement Storeage

I seem to have misplaced the spare keys to the basement storeage in my TT.
Can I get new ones from CW or Amazon?
Or can I get new ones made at a hardware store?
Thanks in advance.

If you have a set with the number on them , you can order, pick up or get them made just about anywhere.

It depends. Our local hardware stores and locksmiths don't have Trimark blanks, for example. But if they're Trimark locks, they sell replacement keys using the key number for reasonable prices.

Most RV compartment keys are the same used across many campers. Most likely any RV dealer can sell you a spare key.

A company called Easykeys makes factory cut replacements for all brands of locks. Just get the lock brand and number. Here's the Trimark list, but they have near every brand and model.

And the list of manufacturers:

It doesn't help you now, but for future planning: I take pictures of EVERY key that I get, as soon as I get it. (My pics automatically upload to Google Photos from my phone.) I then go into Google Photos and under the "info" section of each picture, I type the description (e.g., "2020 Bounder deadbolt"). This way, if the unthinkable happens and I lose ALL of my keys, I know what the code number is for each thing that I own. It also helps with getting rid of keys when you dispose of things, as you aren't guessing "What is this key to?".

Good luck getting yours made. I would think any RV dealer or even independent repair tech would be able to get you in.

The almost universal key is a CH 752, available at most any RV sales N service. I have a link to buy Trimark blanks, but who needs a bag of 50? If you have a hollow key, check here.

Any competent locksmith should be able to pick that lock in about 30 seconds unless it has a barrel key, then it should take about a minute. No I'm not a locksmith or a thief but I have done both of the above. They are made to keep your friends from "borrowing" your beer or fishing rods.

You can go to Lowes or Hoe Depot and look through the cabinet locks and find a key with your same number, if you know it. most likely its the CH751. Most are.

If you are in a campground, then just borrow your neighbor's key. You will be surprised how many RV's use the same compartment key.

Thanks for all the responses!
I have the one key and took it to an Ace Hardware, Lowe's and Home Depot.
No luck with the match.
I just happened to be driving right by a CW today and went in to see if they had one.
I forgot the key!
Oh well.
CW had given me a complimentary GS membership earlier this year after I'd let mine expire.
I was able to get 2 new locks for just over $20 and will install them this weekend.
They did try to sell me an extension to my GS plan AND informed me that I was eligible for a CW Visa card!
Pass aaannnddddd pass!
