Can a locksmith rekey the entry door and storage compartments?

Probably but why? Some will simply order a different style lock for the compartments like the ones that require a numeric entry code. If you lost keys or simply need more then just order the correct number key online or purchase at local camping world.

I don't need a new key I just don't want a key that everyone else has. Don't like the idea that my neighbor can have the same key to my trailer door.

Brandon -- When I bought my first camper I bought and changed all the locks on all the basement doors. The key looked like the key used on the old Coke machines, the part that went into the lock was round. No one at any of the campground that I went to had them. I found them to be a real pain in the --- if you know what I mean. Once you unlocked the lock the key would not come out, it only came out in the unlock position. So when I would set up or break down, I had to constantly unlock than lock the door to go to the next door I wanted to get into. That's when I realized why no one else had them If someone wants something you have bad enough they will find a way. I have never had anything stolen at a campground. That's my story and I'm sticken to it.

I take it you are new to camping, so welcome aboard

I wouldn't worry to much about the keys for the storage compartments. We have camped for years and never had an issue. We have spent the last several years snowbirding on the Alabama gulf coast for three months each winter. When we get there I unlock all the storage compartments for easy access and leave them unlocked the entire time. No problems.

We have a new Zinger 5th wheel on order. I was just wondering how many different keys come with a new unit? On our previous unit (older, purchased used) it seemed like every lock needed a different key.

I went to CW and got new locks when I first got the camper but never installed them and have never had a problem with anyone getting in to them. The door is not very well built so like said above if someone wants in a 6 in screwdriver would do it.

I agree campers don't steal and if they wanted to get in your storage compartments aall that is needed is a screwdriver. I do know they have differant keys for your entrance door.

I agree with the others that the likelihood of anybody stealing out of your storage compartments isn't all that high. I lock mine when traveling just to keep them from inadvertently coming open going down the highway, but I leave them unlocked the whole time I am set up. I've never had anything come up missing. Campers are pretty good about watching each other's stuff. If you are leaving the trailer to go sightseeing, hiking, or the like, just let your neighbor know. They won't let anybody bother your rig.
