Security

Not sure if this is a big issue or not but I took my TT into the dealer to get some warranty work. Keys were in the wife's purse so he quickly opened it with a key he had. Do dealers have a master key? How safe is my trailer when I leave it in the park for a day of sightseeing? My feeling is that most RV parks are pretty secure but I travel with some very expensive camera equipment. Should I be worried about someone with a master Jayco key getting into my TT?

They have a master for the door lock not the dead bolt. Always lock the dead bolt and no worries.

The cabinet locks if equipped are also keyed in common between many RVs including different brands.

My door and deadbolt keys are the same. My understanding is there are a relatively small number of keys for RV's and dealers do have a set of keys that will open all.

So are mine, but the dealer master doesn't work on the dead bolt, even the factory did not have a master key for the dead bolt. The service center emphasized that numerous times when I dropped it off. "Don't lock the dead bolt".

This is true on our Greyhawk, too.

Interesting Grumpy - I wonder how it will open one lock and not the other??

Newer Jayco units, and most others, have a latch lock and a deadbolt. They have been different keys on all other RVs we have had. Our first gen Seneca, however, has only a deadbolt lock. I would not recommend storing any valuables in outside storage (such as basement storage cabinets). Those keys are very common across many RV manufacturers. You might consider storing valuables under the bed, with some sort of locking mechanism you add to that in addition to the door lock. I am considering that for the occasional times we carry something particularly valuable there.

If someone really wants to get in they obviously could.
Mine has the pass through storage under the bed, so a common compartment key would get them in there and could push up the bed on struts to get in the trailer.

As the saying goes "A lock just keeps a honest person honest".
