When we were pop up camping years ago, we headed to the beach. We got there, and neither of us had the key to unlock the pop up drop down door or the lock from the hitch. They were at home on the counter! We had to drill the fold down door/step lock out, and we just removed the entire pin from the truck leaving the ball attached to the camper.

And one pop up trip years ago, my mom and aunt decided their purses were safer locked in the van than the pop up. They both had a van key, just incase one got lost... or locked in the car or something. That was a great idea until neither one took the van key out of their purse before they locked the door!

We were at home working on ours one day, both of us had a set of keys. DW set her keys just inside the door on the counter. I was futzing around with the door lock, apparently locked it with the door still open and also set my keys on the counter just inside the door. Closed the door and as it clicked shut realized that both set of keys were inside the trailer. Road service came out and we were able to get it unlocked.

Now there is a third set of keys in the truck.

Another time while out camping we locked the trailer up and went into town to the store. Got back and could not unlock the trailer. DW suspects someone tried to use one of the generic keys (we had changed out the lock set) and messed it up. Ended up having to "borrow" a fellow campers small child and petite wife to crawl in the back window and open up from the inside.


I did this at a music festival, both sets got locked accidentally in the camper. Had a Keystone Impact at the time. So we wandered around the camping area and found another Impact, and that guy's keys opened our rear garage door on ours. Got lucky.

Now we have the touchpad RV Lock.
