Well I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later with only one set of keys. Misplaced and of course she's all closed up for the winter with the door handles and deadbolts locked as well as the hatches. Any non destructive suggestions? I'm pretty sure the keys will turn up but DW wants something out of the trailer.

Thanks for looking.

Got some time? Watch a couple of vids on YouTube and get a cheapo lock-pick set. It's easier than you think.

If you have the standard baggage door locks with the common 751 / CH751 key you might obtain one of the keys and open a baggage door under a bunk or bed and give a skinny neighbors kid $10 or $20 to shimmy through and unlock the trailer from inside.

Once unlocked, one of two things:
Have the locksmith who picked the lock make a key or take lock out of door, it should have a sticker with a code number, using that number either an RV dealer or a locksmith can cut you a key.

Once unlocked from the inside you can remove the lock from the door. You can then take it to a lock Smith to get a new key made. Some of the locks have the key number etched on the inside. Once you get the key number you can order new keys.

If it is an FIC lock you can order new lock cylinder cores and lock cylinder core removal key and insert new cylinder cores. They are available on ebay and Amazon. The cores and keys are sold in sets. The cores are replaceable just like the cores on Yakima roof racks. FIC and yakima use the same double sided key blank design. They may even use the same lock cores.
