I had no idea that most Campers and RVS used the same keys dunno?
That is kinda scary!

I want to change mine out to combination locks, but it can get pricey if I change them all.

So it is true then? the keys could possibly fit someone else's camper? like someone could get into our camper?

When we traded in our last travel trailer, I left the back up crank for the electric jack in the storage compartment, even though I took the electric jack off. No problem. I just went to the lot, used my new key from the motorhome, opened the storage compartment, and retrieved the crank.
So, yes, it's true. If you look on your storage compartment key, ikt probably says either ch751 or ch761.

I had no Idea! Yikes! I will have to tell my Husband- although- campers and RV'ers seem to be a pretty communal bunch- I mean the 2 times we have gone so far- people seem to look out for each other- more than I would have ever thought!

OKay- so like the keys for the little doors - not the actual camper main door are the ones that are universal then I am assuming cause we use the little one with numbers for the compartments along the bottom of our camper:)

Campgrounds are generally safe and you don't have to worry to much about people stealing from you. But, I do not put anything of real value in my compartments.

I have never heard of anyone getting robbed at a campground. But I'm sure it has happened.It is better to be safe then sorry, But somethings wont fit any where else but a compartment,it might be worth the cost of changing the lock. A lock is a lot cheaper then a generator. But another thing to remember that locks only keep honest people out.


Its all fun and games then crasher gets a site beside you

Only thing I saw taken at a campground was at Big Timber Lake in Jersey. Kids were stealing beer out of coolers.

Wasn't a problem for me either. I just sat there with my 2- 130 lb dogs.
