I have taken a number of approaches over the years.

While parked long-term, I used to put a spare key on a length of black thread and then push it back into one of the frame rails a few inches. Pull on the thread to retrieve it.

When security isn't a major concern, I sometimes leave a set of spares in a certain location in one of the baggage compartments.

Lately I have been using a pushbutton key safe especially when there are several people who need to have access to the trailer.

I always hide a spare set with my wife and hope that she does not get mad at me.

I too thought the best plan was to store my spare keys in my tow vehicle. I kept my main set and spares in my truck. Then my truck was stolen.

The truck was gutted and they took ALL the trailer keys. I had to hire a locksmith to pick the door locks and replace the cylinders. All hitch padlocks were cut off and new locks purchased.

New plan. We bought a lock box like that a realtor uses on a house. The box has a combination and is permanently secured to the trailer in an obscure and out of the way place.

One set in tow vehicle another in front storage compartment, key for front compartment in furnace compartment, screw driver for furnace compartment in bumper compartment. With that said most of the time it's not locked.

I'm thinking about just sticking one to some duct tape and slapping it on the underside of the propane lid...

lock box

We use one of the lock boxes. Have not needed the spare yet. But it will be there when we need it. We got new key blanks at JC during Alumapalooza and I was surprised that the blank was so much smaller than the original key. So be bought more and now that is all we use. Then we walked up to the hardware downtown and had the key blanks made into keys. When I tried to pay the person at the hardware told me that making keys was free of charge. You've got to love town small enough for that.

We need to put our extra key in a place that nobody would ever think to look, but if we think of it, doesn't that make it a place someone would think to look?

Ow, my head hurts.

Just tape it to the shore power cord with electrical tape, it will look like you repaired the cord.
