Missing Keys please HELP

Hi!

I recently purchased a 2005 Jay Flight 29bhs. The previous owner did not have keys. How can I get keys for the door and storage compartments?

Thanks in advance!

Storage door is typically a 751 key, which is what almost all mfg use. Go to any RV dealer they can help you. The door may be a different issue. If you take your RV to a dealer they typically have keys which they can check to see which you have. Worse case replace the door locks, less than $50.

Why did the previous owner not have keys ? Are you sure he owned it and it's not a stolen unit ?

You also maybe able to call Jayco with your VIN and they could tell you what key you need and possibly supply said key.

Good Luck.

I lost keys to my AF and had to disassemble the lock mechanism. Once I had the tumblers out I was able to get a code off of them and re-order the keys. It wasn't that complicated of a lock and only took a few minutes.


Mine were made by a company called fastec

The 751 is a standard key for almost every cargo hatch on every brand rv. As for the door, I removed my handle assembly and the key code was on a sticker on the back of the latch assembly.

Curious... if one were to want to replace their storage compartment locks with something that was a little less easily accessible to anyone with a 751 key...

What lock would I buy?

Measure the lock length, and go to the link above and you can pick the lock (s) you want.

My locks just came it. I ordered new slam locks and new compartment locks for ALL of the locks on the RV. All of them ordered to match the main door lock. Haven't had a chance to install them yet - but it will be one of the first things I do next time I bring the rig home from the storage lot.

I owned an RV for years before I realized that everyone else in the campground had keys to my RV (and I to theirs).

Also do some reading on the subject before spending the $$$ on new hatch locks. Make up your own mind about the improved security?

Anyone can pry open a rv hatch in less time than you can unlock it with a key.

Never had a problem in many many years. If you can't stand it spend the dough.

Locks are absolutely to keep "honest people honest" - any determined thief can get past anything.
But I have had things stolen - most recently a propane tank. Sad thing was, the idiot didn't even try to hide what he had done. I guess he ran out of propane and just took a tank from the most convenient RV. Left it sitting beside his rig, with his 2 empty tanks still on the tongue. Didn't take the state park ranger too long to figure it out when I reported it. Asked if I wanted to file charges - I just wanted my tank back - thief got shown the gate.

Rumor is . . . there may have been beer involved.

I'm honestly far more worried about stuff being stolen out of my rig on the storage lot than when we're out camping. Having unique locks may just mean they steal from an easier target (ie the RV next to mine).
