Enter via a roof vent? Even if you break it, cheaper than a window.

If the whole key is broken into maybe you can turn the key using a small flat blade screwdriver...

Our deadbolt broke, we had to break the door window and still couldn't get the deadbolt to release. Had to drill the lock out. New window, lock and labor ended up being $270..good luck!

If you break a window, break the one in the door. They're cheap at less than $35 and available at RV parts places.

I did that once and called AAA... locksmith came out and he picked the broken key out... I did have a spare to open the door, so 1/2 of your problem. Maybe locksmith could get the door unlocked while he is there?

I did the kid thing. Thankfully, I had a window that I could get open with a butter knife. Then I walked around the campground till I found a kid willing to help and shoved him through the window. I gave him 10 bucks and he was a happy camper... So was I.

We had that happen when we had a hybrid, but that was an easy solution.

My friend lock their self out of their TT or lost the keys or something. He dropped his 5 years old down through the roof vent.

That may be the direction we'll be going. And I guess I'll need to order a whole new lock and keys and replace it.


I went with the number pad lock (RVLock). Made it easier for us and the kids to come and go at different times.

A few decades ago, my FIL was in his TT about to take a shower when he realized that he left something, I don't recall what, in his (unlocked) truck that he needed for his shower. He was in his altogether already, but it was dark outside with no lights in the area, so he opened the trailer door and hustled to the truck. The wind caught the trailer door and swung it shut. He had, out of habit, locked the trailer door as he was exiting.

Since it was unthinkable that he should knock on another trailer door in his current state of dishabille, he just got the tire iron from his truck and popped the door open. He said he would just deal with the broken door later (when he was dressed).
