2017 MB Sprinter 3500 Extra Key

I don't know where I can get a spare programmed fob with key blade that will start and run the Sprinter.

Recently obtained a 2017 Thor Quantum KM24 on a Mercedes-Benz (MB) Sprinter 3500 chassis. It came with only key for the ignition. MB says they will only provide and program a fob with blade if the owner doesn't have any. Proof of towing is required before the dealer will do anything.

Checked with local locksmiths, and they say that 2017 is a model year that they can't program.

Keys/fobs on ebay say to check with dealer before purchasing. Dealer said it is unlikely that their programming will work with a used fob, but they will try for the programming fee ($205); likewise with a new, unused fob.

I just want a spare ignition key!!!

Did MB say that or did a dealer say that? Seems like having two keys is a fundamental right.

The possible good news may be that your 2017 RV is likely on a 2016 Sprinter Chassis - so maybe the local locksmiths CAN program you a key.
