If you have AS owner that is close that owns 70s AS see if can borrow keys or else google out of doors mart or inland rv they will probably have compartment keys,& water door it takes 3 one for door that you will have locksmith make as door replacement locks are expensive, 1 for all compartments, 1 for water door. Call me at 630 292 9409, if no answer has voice mail. I will see what you need then I will send keys to you except for door.

I recently had to "pick" the fresh water compartment lock. I had forgotten to bring the keys with me. It was very easy with a paperclip and a small screwdriver to turn it. The others maybe not so but only because of more pressure being needed. It is my understanding that the water lock is a standard used throughout the RV industry so any RV place should have keys. The storage and battery compartments would be easy to drill out to open if necessary then replace as needed. A few years ago I needed to have a complete xtra set of keys made just to be safe. I keep the xtra's in my truck. Just in case.
