Keys Walked Away...

…yes - totally on their own from their appointed spot in the drawer. So, any ideas on how to get replacements for all external compartments (I do have an entrance door duplicate)

One key, universal fits your compartments, any one with a rv has a key that fits, your door is anther issue, there is a manufacturer code on the lock, perhaps ETI can help?

We got duplicates of everything to start and everything we have added. Wife has a complete set and so do I. Increases our odds of not losing everything. Ditto with the car keys when traveling.

What Jim says, any RV supply or dealer should have them. Or ask your neighbor.

When traveling we always take 2 sets of tow vehicle keys and one set of trailer keys. There is another set of kets inside the trailer, by the rear compartment with keys. This compartment can easily be opened by anyone in the campground, if needed with the stock door key. I leave the keys to the hitches inside the tow vehicle in a separate place.

Seems like that should be the case - but, only my external shower and water-fill doors used the same key. And the front access panel and rear access panel were different keys.

That's a no-brainer. However, I assumed that the extra ring of keys I got from the previous owner included all spare keys - without ever checking. WRONG!

The main door can easily be removed with the square head driver, you can then remove the lock and contact the manufacturer or take it to a locksmith. Your compartment keys, if standard should both be the same like #CHP51 or similar and easily found.

CH751 keys are universal, and available in lots of places.
