I had an extra set of keys made and keep one set in my tow vehicle. Maybe this precaution has kept me from getting in trouble since I have not needed to go after the spare set. The main thing if you ever pull the spare set, make it a habit to immediately return the keys to your TV. BTW my TV has a keypad on it so no worry about locking the keys in it.

Hi, I also have a fail-safe system similar to Dennis's. I keep a spare set of Airstream keys in my Lincoln [tow vehicle] and I keep a spare key for the Lincoln in my trailer. I also have keyless entry on my Lincoln. Now, if for some extremely rare sercumstances, I would have to lock the Lincoln and the Safari without my pants on to be in real trouble because I carry my Lincoln and Safari keys in my pants pockets and my keyless entry code in my wallet. Needless to say I have never been locked out because of this arrangement.

My wife and I own a '78 Argosy 28'. Now, I had it over to our trusty RV repairman. We were going in and out of the trailer, locking it up then going back later and working on an item. When all of a sudden the door lock jammed. The key would not unlock the door so what to do?? I am contemplating taking the door off its hidges. I do not want to "drop" a small child down the roof vent. So Any other suggestions would be helpful.

I can tell you how you can easily get into the trailer, without any big deal, but not via any e-mail, or posted in this Forums. Thieves would love to know.

This is the only time a vendor can say, call me.

800-8777311.

Vintage Airstream with no keys

I just bought a 1970 Airstream Safari from eBay and found out that the owner didn't have keys. He got the trailer from an auction. I found locks online but they were out of stock. Would a locksmith be able to make keys to match these licks? Any suggestions?

Hi

Most locksmiths pull the cylinders of the locks when they do a new set of keys. They essentially "rebuild" the lock rather than just making keys. That *seems* like a more involved / more expensive process. It is actually the cheaper / faster way to do it. If the lock is not a cylinder type lock, redoing keys is an expensive thing to do.

Yes.
We once sent a truck to L.A. and the driver thought the techs had the keys and the techs thought the driver had the keys. So we're all standing around until a locksmith shows up (On New Year's Eve) to pick the lock. It took him all of a minute to open the door and a few minutes more to make new keys.
