The suggestion to tape the keys "up" is a great approach to contravene human nature. As a former locksmith I carry one set of keys for the moho and the toad key is also in my pocket, but separate. There is a full set of moho the moho since I can always get in if I ever lose the first set outside. But the other solution: don't lose the keys.

The PO put a push-button combination key box inside one of the compartments that could be reached form outside so he could put an access key in it...but he never gave me the combination so it just rests there. There's a fair variety of these available that you could attach somewhere, just don't drill & tap screw holes in the propane tank. LOL.

Hi, I believe the aftermarket does have those, but only for SOB trailers.

I have four sets, unfortunately cannot remember where they are....

The "hidden" set is inside the trailer accessible through one of the appliance access doors, but hidden from view. So, one has to know where to look to find the keys, and must have the proper tool to reach them. I have a duplicate set in the TV, one set in my purse, and the active set is usually around my wrist with one of those expandable wrist bands.

I also have an alarm system on the trailer door, not so much to prevent a break in, but so i can nap with only the screen door closed, and if this is opened the buzzer will awaken me and potentially scare intruders off. The "alarm" system will be supplemented by appropriate stickers on the trailer suggesting a system is being monitored by a security system off site.

A dog barking inside the trailer will be hooked up with a highly varied pattern, and if someone disturbs the trailer as in a break in attempt, this will be set off. For sure, criminals do not want a dog encounter as this is so unpredictable and that is not what someone breaking in wants. They have high control needs, so an unknown threat is almost always off-putting to them.
Happy trails and Good Luck

This thread has to be a result of going stir crazy due to a lack of camping.

I bought a lockbox (sold at Home Depot or Lowe's) like real estate people put on homes that are on the market. The lockbox uses a combination that I set myself. In the lockbox there are keys to my hitch lock, door locks, and tow vehicle. The lockbox is attached to a metal bar inside the case the covers the LP Gas tanks. This insures that I always have a keys to the TV and Trailer that I can get to. Safe travels.
