Good afternoon all. I have a National 2006 SeaBreeze LX and the key that will fit into the 4 fittings that hold down the dog house, called a spanner key, did not come with the coach. Does anyone off the top of their head know the size of the key? They look to come in many sizes, and I want to make sure I order the right size. As of right now (out camping) I do not have a millimeter tape measure and I don't want to just eyeball it, as I'm sure I'll be wrong. Any thoughts?

I don't know what latches National used on their RV's but the Southco E3 5-15 is a popular compression latch key used for some motorhome hoods and dog houses:

I think they are asking for the cover inside cover dog house not the outside hood ?

I've seen the Southco compression latches used for both applications. Our current coach also uses them for a rear compartment.
