Going in through a compartment may be your best bet. Finding a small yet capable kid is helpful for these types of things too. When camping, I always keep a spare set of camper keys in the truck and a spare set of truck keys in the camper. At home, all the spares are hanging up on the key holder.

You can always pay a kid standing around $5 to crawl in for you...
Always need a PLAN B... I have extra keys in my truck somewhere for all my locks.

They also make a wireless key entry thing - Just push a remote thumper on your keyring..
Some have keypads installed at the front door... whatever you billfold can aford hehe...

Also a good sturdy flat head screw driver will fit between the door jam and the wall and since everything is aluminum is will bend right out and let you pull the door open and then it bends right back in place like it never happened.

On my POPUP you just reach the inside door handle by slipping your hand through the VELCRO flap holding up the door. I can do this faster when I am carring in grocercies and cant reach into my pocket for the keys.

Sorta scary how fast someone can get into these trailers if they want to...

I always keep a spare in the truck just in case. Have had to use the laundry chute once. The door has two locks, the deadbolt can not be closed if locked, the other can.

We never lock the door with the key unless we are outside. That solved it for us.

You don't even need a key for the outside storage compartments, any key or flat blade screwdriver will open them. I do not know your trailer layout, but if there is access to the inside of the trailer from an outside storage door I would suggest that is your best bet. Good luck.

I have one of these hidden on my frame.

Also, I have to agree with Jeff - any key will open the outside storage compartments. I grabbed my padlock key by accident and was suprised when it opened the compartment.

Thanks for all the help and threads.

Locksmith came out and jimmied it in about 70 seconds flat.

Didn't want to wreck the lock mechanism before the camping trip.
Besides, that was just one of about 6 things that went to crap before we got to the State Park. hahahaha

Will now separate the keys for future lock outs.
