Level out the trailer Spray water on all windows, roof (especially skylight and vents), compartment doors and vents for a good few minutes.

I'm not talking pressure washer, but a garden hose with a nozzle to emulate a good hard rain.

After all, Airstreams never leak... especially when new...

I mean, I DID take the Belsaw mail order locksmithing course many years ago,after all.

Anyhow, with all those keys you need to actually have the keys in your hand in order to turn outside locks them and lock things up........except for one. You can slide the lock on the inside of the door, and then slam the door from outside, and it locks.

We had to go to a locksmith ( after trying three hardware stores in Cypress Texas) to get the right blanks, but we had a couple extra sets made. I like the idea of hiding a copy of that one door key someplace reachable. You, or someone near to you but prone to playing with sliding things on Airstreams, could conceivably lock you out with your keys all inside.

And then where are ya, huh?
We always hide a door key too. Our door has mysteriously locked a couple of times
