Lost Key

I have a 2010 Jayco 199 and Ive lost one of the keys.
Anyone have any problem replacing keys? My dealer said they have blanks but cant cut the key.
Can hardware stores cut this type of key? Any thoughts?

Yup they can. I picked up 2 blanks and had them cut.

I should mention that it is the entry key. How much was the blank? My dealer said $15 for blank. Sounds kinda high to me!

I think I paid about 15 bucks for both and 2 bucks each to cut.

You gotta remember what you're buying. They're "specialty" keys and have a limited "audience" along with a limited number of places you can buy one. It's not like a Kwikset, Schlage, Yale or other commonly used lockset key that you can have cut at any Home Depot, Lowes or hardware store. Hence the hefty price. It's the old "law of supply and demand".

I always think of RVing as a hobby; and you almost always pay more for anything associated with a hobby. Take, for example, the pressure relief valve on your RV's HWT. Your HWT at home (if you have one) is equipped with the same thing. Yet, what you pay to replace the relief valve in your RV is many times more than the one in your house will cost when you buy it from an RV store.

If you think $15 is expensive for an RV key, you're going to get a real big surprise if you have to have a vehicle key made that has an anti-theft device built into it.

I made some extra sets for mine right after I got it. I think they were less than $5 each and they cut at a local dealer. $15 sounds way high, I bet if you try another dealer it would be a much better price.

Heck - an entire new lock set with two keys is just over $30.....

A lot of RV shows have someone selling and cutting keys. You might also check the internet for a blank.

Any good key cutting service will have blanks and will be much cheaper than going to a RV dealer. My nephew cuts my keys for me and I only pay him for the blanks. Two bucks each.

We lost of set of keys on our 2006 Jayco. For us, I simply removed (unscrewed) the door lock from the inside and obtained the lock number - off the lock assembly rear panel. Think its a 4 digit number. I took this number to my local RV dealer and within 5 days, they ordered me another key. If your local lock smith is unable to cut a key (or is too costely), you could possibly order a a duplicate key from your RV dealer. Plan A or backup Plan B thing. Good luck...
