Lock out kit.

We have a little problem with the "postal system" with the lock out kit.

They insist on 2 stamps.

So please, when you send in your SASE for the "FREE" lockout kit, please put 2 stamps on the return envelope.

Our Feds will love you for it.

Come and get them folks, they are free.

Don't wait for that lockout, because "IT WILL HAPPEN" when you least expect it.

Ask those that have been there, done that.

Andy

Oh dear ours left with one stamp, but I think it is a forever stamp, I guess it still would have to be two?

I am a member of the lock out club too. My story is a little different though. I was camping with 4 kids (none of them mine either), all the other adults were to join us on the 2nd day. We went to get some ice and came back to a door that would not open. Well, I had been told that I needed to replace the hinge by a mechanic at a frame shop where something similar had happened. So I knew immediately what it was and what to do. When the other "adults" arrived, we told them of our predicament. It took 5 big, strong men to pull the hinge out (while all of us women watched--cute butts too!!!). I went in the trailer and got the new hinge while they took the lock out. We (or the 5 big, strong men) put the new hinge in and we bungee corded the door for the rest of the weekend and to get it home. Luckily, I have a mechanic friend that had the part and knew how to fix it. Just another day in Paradise!

Another lock-out member here. At Disney's Fort Wilderness4 years ago. My wife and I stepped under the awning for earlier morning coffee while our 7 year old daughter slept. After that relaxing quite first cup it was time to go in BUT...

We banged, knocked called her name but couldn't shout because we didn't want to wake neighbors. I had NO intention of spending that much time outside the trailer in my boxer shorts! at least without a second cup! Extra set of keys now in truck.

I have looked at new trailers and they have the deadbolt but it is not on the door but on the sheet by door jamb and goes through the jamb into the door.

Sounds like they've made an improvement, but still, if it does not have a detent, or some other method of holding it open until you physically close it, the same thing may happen.

Just wanted to add a note to this thread....I received Andy's free "Anti lock out kit" the other day, and installed it in about ten minuets. It's amazingly simple, and more importantly, it works! I pulled the trailer to Dallas and back for some service yesterday and today, slammed the door several times, and I can still get in.

Thanks Andy.

SteveH,
Kinda off the subject, but where in Dallas do you get your service work done?

Bluto,

I had a special situation....needed a wheel alignment done on the trailer as it was wearing one of the tires. North Dallas RV has a tool and a procedure for bending axles as necessary to align the wheels.

It was a hard two day trip, but glad I got it done. Not only will my tires wear better, the trailer pulls much better....more stable and less of a tendency to sway, and I learned about wheel alignment on trailers.

Interestingly, the tire that was wearing bad was not the one that was out of alignment...it was the one behind it, causing the front one to wear.

Now I can start the search for GOOD trailer tires as mine are aproaching five years old.
