So many do not know that they are universally the same key industry wide.
In addition, I'll probably hide a spare door key in a storage area. Should be easy to find (Norty1? ) or someone else with a 751 key.

We have NEVER had a problem with anyone unlocking our hatch in over 15 years of camping all over the US of A, or for that matter even taking something that was laying out in plain sight.

BTW, takes less than 15 minutes per storage lock to switch it out ...

We have discussed this in the past. Anyone can open any hatch lock in less time that it takes to get the key out.

I'd like to do this. Can you share some links for what you used? Or link me to your write-up or something?

I have too many keys, and it's getting annoying.

Well sort of! What if you loose yours and the wife's are locked in the TV? We were in Bristol a few years ago for the spring race. Stopped at a sub shop for lunch and wife left her purse in back seat under a blanket. I was having an issue with a turnsignal so when I got out I left my key in the ignition so I could get out and check to see front or rear lite out?? Made the mistake to close my door and as the wife exited her side she "was helping" and hit the lock button. Bingo truck locked and both sets inside. A sore subject why women have to carry a purse but constently don't want to take it with them into a store or on a hike.

You do not need an oversized key box to hide your emergency key [s] because all you need to hide OUTSIDE is the RV door key, as you can hide the other back up keys inside the TT. We keep a set behind the fridge grill but now thinking that's like putting a house key under the door mat. Maybe the first place a bad guy would look. Any way think my new plan is a simple mag box between the propane tanks or on the TT frame somewhere.

Only I keep a set of truck keys. So we're in trbl if something happens to them. We both keep a trailer key (same key opens door and hatches) with us all the time.

One great/bad feature of the newer Fords is the combo keypad on the drivers side door. It has saved me a few times when I could not remember where I hid the key.
They did not put any other keyed locks on the truck except the drivers door.

Keep a trailer door key in a black magnetic box att to the frame. Keep a door opener in the trailer in case I lock my truck key in the ignition. I have matching cam locks for my compartments.
