THOR #8717
Outside Shower Access

We purchased a 2019 Thor Four Winds in March. We were given 4 keys for the coach: 2 for the coach door, 1 for the storage compartments and 1 for the ignition. None of these four keys will unlock the outside shower door. On our previous Thor, the key to the storage areas was also the same key to unlock the outside shower. Has anyone run into this and is there yet another key to unlock this compartment? I will soon need access in order to winterize the unit.

Thanks,
Dan

We have a Thor Vegas 25.2. Our outdoor shower key is a separate key. It is the smallest of all the keys, and it is wrapped in a gray plastic at the top. You might be missing it

We have the same "gray" key you are referring to that unlocks the storage cabinets, but it will not fit the outside shower access. We previously had a Vegas 25.2 and the gray key you refer to did unlock the outside shower access on ours.

Thanks,
Dan

Our 30FE has a grey key for the storage bays, but a separate key with a black top for the shower. That key is only about 2/3 the size of the storage bay keys. Sounds like the dealer didn't give you that key.

Grey key is the bays key; black key is the shower. No markings or numbers on the black one.

^^^same as Pop^^^ I bet my key will open 95% of the shower doors on most campers. Call Thor...they will probably send you one. Also, look in the bag the gave you with the manuals...it may be in there.

Why not just call the Dealership, and ask them...
They are also in a pretty good position to get you another one...

Where's the rest of the keys?

1 for the ignition? You should have got at least 2.
2 for the coach door? Is the deadbolt keyed differently from the latch like most Thor doors? If so you should have got at least 2 of each.
1 for the storage compartments? THOR gets 2 keys for each lock they install so again, you should have got at least 2 storage compartment keys.
And of course, 2 shower door keys.

In short - you should have got at least 2 full sets of keys for the RV. If this was a new RV purchase you need to head back to the dealer. If it was used then you got what you got and need to resolve it with $.

I agree: you should have walked out of the Dealership with enough keys to choke a mule...

2018 29M. Same keys as in the photo. Gray for compartments (cut on both sides of key) and black for shower (single sided cut). Number of cuts is another way to ID the key.

I guess Thor is now using a separate key for the shower access. This was not the case on our 2015 Vegas. I called Thor Customer Service and I should be getting the key I'm missing. Thanks for your input!

Received two keys from Thor yesterday for the shower access door. I haven't had a chance to try them out yet, but they are different from the other keys I have for the RV.

Outside shower access

I had the same problem when I got my 2018 Hurricane. I had ask the dealer a few times with an “I’ll get back to you answer”. But then one day while at a different camping world location, I ask a guy in service about it and he walked me over to a shelf and handed me a package with 2 keys in it. A plane silver key with 751CH on it. You can probably get it from camping world online. He said they key them all the same.

The 751CH does not work on many of the newer RVs. At one time, they were used on almost all units. The newer keys are cut on both sides of the key. See the picture a few posts up, the key with the grey top. My old 751CH keys do not fit anything on my 2019 motorhome.

Outside shower access

Yes, I also have the grey key. But it only fits all the basement storage compartments most of which have slap latches. My outside shower has a door with a turnbar latch. It is the only lock on the motor home that uses that key. It’s funny, my battery compartment, tool compartment and generator compartment all have turnbar latches, but all use the same grey key as the slap latch doors. Why they made that one lock differently is beyond me. Hope the info helps somebody out there.

same issue with mu 2019 Hurricane. Went to a rv supply store and bought replacement keys. The shower compartment doors are usually a universal key. The number on my set is CH751 and it worked fine. A set of two cost less than $7.00.
