Wondering if you the OP are still following this discussion? Your last post was almost two weeks ago.

IIRC, Inland RV used to sell or give away a felt(?) washer that you can put on the lock lever behind the plate to add friction to keep just closing the door from locking you out. I have a push button combo lock box that holds a set of spare keys mounted to part of the trailer structure that I can easily reach. The actual location is, of course, classified as my eyes only...

Patrick at Colonial Airstream warned us of this happening so we always keep a key in the TV as a precaution.

We do something similar - but isnít it nuts that AS hasnít fixed the root cause of this issue which has been pointed out - with myriad fixes by fellow campers - in these forums????

I love my AS but this is the silliest damn thing - the Sales staff in the dealer network have to warn you to carry extra keys because AS wonít spend $2/door to fix the problem? Charge me $25 - Iíll pay to never be locked in or out again!

Sheesh - I do love you AS but címon now!

Key lock out

Had same thing happen to us on our 2018 International. Had to go thru back emergency window ended up cutting and bending screen. Tried to get a new one and they changed the screen design from square corners to rounded so I canít get a replacement. Now we keep a set of keys outside. It has happened on two other occasions. Good luck with warranty!
