Do It Yourself RV: How to make your RV more secure

From the bloggers at Do It Yourself RV:

You wouldn’t give out copies of your RV keys to thousands of people, but that’s exactly what RV manufacturers do when they repeatedly produce rigs with identical door locks and cabinet keys.

While it’s no longer a secret that the majority of motorhomes and towables roll off the assembly line with the same CH751 cabinet keys, I was horrified to discover that the door key to our 2007 Arctic Fox 24′ fifth wheel could open our newly purchased 2010 Arctic Fox 27′ fifth wheel.

Unlike a lot of RVers who make a big deal out of home security, I try to believe in the goodness of people and not fret too much about thieves stealing my stuff. But when my husband and I made this shocking discovery, we knew we were pushing our luck if we didn’t do something.
