I also used a magnetic holder for extra key but I forgot where I put it. Time to get under the RV when the weather breaks. So secret I cant find it.

Google Search

Did a Google search on "hidden extra keys". Here is what was returned along with pointers about hiding keys around the house etc... The return below was number 16 out over 24.9 million hits. The same search string returns as number 3, yes number 3, on Yahoo.

So I made a third set of keys and hid them in the extra sewer hose holder I previously ... Click image for larger version Name: Hidden keys 1

Clicking the link in the return takes one to Darren's post with pictures.

That post is available for viewing by any Google user whether their intentions are good or bad.

Bottom line, nothing on this forum is "secret" so you are posting at your own risk.

Now, where did I put those links for the electronic locks and RV security system?

The cost of the electronic lock is about 150.00 less than my insurance deductible. For me, that is a reasonable price.

Combo key safe

I use the realtor type of key lock box. It has a code you enter, opens up a small compartment for several keys and a latch that opens up to go around cables and hoses.

I put in one of the non-lockable compartments around a tube.

Go to amazon and key in "key lock box"

Does anyone have experience with this keyless entry lock?

https://www.rvupgradestore.com/Bauer...-p/bauerem.htm

I may still "hide" a key just in case (im NOT telling anyone...including my WIFE!), however, since my family is always in and out of our coach, it would make sense for us.

My first inclination was it was "too expensive" and was considering purchasing a keyless deadbolt similar to the one on my home that was purchased for @ $100.

However, after reading Dave's post about our insurance deductible and considering the unknowns of cutting into my door and frame, and potentially damaging my door, $250 is not bad considering how easy the installation is and how convenient it would be to have it.


After all that, I'm still on the fence though.

Please someone PUSH me over the edge!!!!!!

why not just use one of those lock boxes, similar to what a real estate agent uses for a house?
You can buy them almost anyplace and they would be reasonably secure, especially if installed strategically someplace hard to get at and out of sight

My solution

First, Thanks for this thread.
I had already swapped my standard locks for cylinder locks. Last weekend, I used FW28z's idea and put a combination lock on one of the basements. Now as long as I can remember a 3 digit code, I have a second set of keys inside.

Once again I caution against remote locks. 1)They don't work on a dead battery and 2) they are too easily cloned in the parking lot. You go into an amusement park or a chain restaurant and come out to a ransacked RV.

Since we are all friends here and sharing our secrets to hiding places=my address is 68364 and I have a spare key to my house hidden in the ashtray of the old junk pickup parked out back. The key to the pickup is hidden in the left front wheel well. Please don't tell anyone else though. I'm not sure they can be trusted. Just sayin

Darren,

I'm not saying I can't be trusted only pointing out to the people posting that they ARE ON THE INTERNET! Some people just share way too much information...

I on the other hand will gladly pay that. I have been spoiled by having them on the house. So much easier not to have to worry about keys if I want to go for a walk.
