Extra #751 Keys

I took all over the #751 keyed locks off of my 5'er yesterday and had them re-keyed. I thought about doing this last year, but just never did it.

Now if anyone wants to get into my storage areas, they will have to use a pry bar and damage my 5'er.

I have thought about doing that too. Just five locks and I would have everything covered.

It's not the people with 751 keys you have to worry about.

In 13 years of RVing across the USA and Canada, I've yet to have anything stolen.

I usually leave the hatches unlocked in campgrounds. The value of the items is less than the cost of repair from a break-in.

Your mileage may vary....

5 locks covered all of mine too.

I would agree that a break in would do more damage, but I just can't leave things unlocked or available to anyone with a 751 key. I just can't do it.

On my rig the hatches have only one lock on one side. Anyone wanting in can just twist the other side latch and jerk the door open. I have never been anywhere where I felt that un- secure. If I did, I would move.

Many years of camping, I have never had anything go missing , even stuff just sitting out.

2 years ago, we dropped our camper off at a BLM campground (no camp host)overnight because my wife had to work that day and could not go camping until her day was done because of meetings.
I dropped off the camper Thursday night, opened slides and locked it up.
We arrived back at the campsite Friday night and when we pulled in, we saw our dishes laying on the ground outside and porch light was on.
My wife ran out of our truck and tried to go in the camper. I yelled at her to stay back, I pulled out my 9mm I carry and approached the trailer. Did not hear any movement or people inside, told my wife to call the sheriff while I secured the perimeter and not to disturb anything.
Took the sheriff 1 hour to arrive to get report for insurance.
Some punks threw a rock through the trailer door window, opened up the door and ripped off our beer, bacon, cheese, Popsicles, candy, a handheld ham radio, flat-screen TV we just bought.
They threw eggs all over the interior, ripped off a wardrobe door, rifled through my wifes underwear and clothes and threw them everywhere.
There was a big hole in the entertainment center wall where the rock they threw went through.
Upon inspecting that night, I had 3 holes in the front cap that the punks probably threw rocks at to see if anyone was inside.
They trashed my almost new trailer and ruined our weekend. I had to tape up holes, tape cardboard in the broken window and drag the trailer home in the rain.
Never caught the scum bags and really did not expect them to.

THE POSITIVE SIDE:
The next day we took our RV to the dealership and the sheriff met us to take report.
Called the insurance and Geico sent us an adjuster the next day.
They wanted us to price out all that was lost. We did and filed it.
A week later they send us a check. No hassles or questions asked.
We then got the RV dealership to price out all the cleanup and damage and billed the insurance. 4500.00 bucks. No hassles or questions asked by insurance.
The dealership felt bad for us and took most of the summer to order material and parts so they gave us a loaner Keystone to go camping with.
We had the whole front cap replaced, they had to tear out the broken entertainment center wall, wardrobe door, replace valences, mattress. (Because of eggs stained them) When repairs were done, our propane was filled, tanks filled (no charge) because the dealership wanted us to get camping!

Do not leave your trailers overnight unattended unless you are in a hosted campground and even then, let the camp host know if you are going to be gone to keep an eye on things.

Crackshot,
There's a special place reserved for people like that. Too bad they couldn't stick around long enough enjoying a few cold brews so you could show them your 9mm.

I had my former 28.5rls Eagle Superlite "broken" into using the 751 key while it was at the storage lot I use. The perps got into the basement storage and only took my 2 Bal X Chocks, about $80 in value. I immediately had the storage bays' locks rekeyed.

Fortunately the basement storage on the Pinnacle uses a different double-sided key. But, does anyone know if this new key is common to all locks of that type on other RVs? Seems for a few dollars more RV manufactures could include personalized locks/keys for the customer.

What a nightmare. Never really thought about replacing those keys but not a bad idea. We camp in Southern Missouri in a little town called Eminence. Never have worried about vandalism, nicest people you could ever hope to meet. The campground hosts are our friends and watch out for us quite well. Also, I'm not sure there are too many bad guys that go camping. At least I have never met any. I'm guessing that it was some local delinquents that vandalized Crackshots camper. Who ever it was will end up in jail at some point and deservingly so.

Man I am sure sorry to hear about that. I firmly believe that locks will not keep a crook out. I guess what I am getting from this story is If I hear a rock hit my front cap, be real quiet and pull out the big stuff. Hard lesson. I would never leave my rig unattended in a isolated place. Sorry for the loss. You have a good dealer to thank for treating you right.
