Key for water fill panel

My 72 Ambassador came with two door keys and nothing else. I had a local locksmith make keys for all of the exterior panels, but he ran into a problem with the water fill panel. According to him, this is some kind of proprietary key that he can't duplicate. He has picked the lock, and opened the panel, but can't make a key.

Can I get a key from the mother company or someone else, or can I get a new lock with a new key?

Thanks,

TJ

Two different locks, like wise keys were used.

This PDF from Airstream says it's the same key that mine uses, the code is G248 and it's a double-sided Illinois key.

I bought mine from Out Of Doors Mart when local locksmiths were unable to help, they don't keep the blanks and/or don't have machines that can cut that key from a code.

Assuming yours uses the same key (Airstream's PDF says it does), it's $6.95 from Out of Doors Mart, here's the item.
