Hidden Spare Keys

Do you keep an ignition key and door key hidden somewhere on the outside of your MH for emergencies?

Yep, full set of keys in a lock box.
Also have just a door key on a ring that I carry when we leave the coach. That way I don't have to carry the extra keys, and if I should manage to lose it I don't have to have as many keys remade.

Yep, a full set including basement doors. I also have a full extra set that I keep in a separate man bag that goes with me in the toad.

I have a weather proof push button combination lock box mounted on the back side of the propane compartment door, they are available at home centers. Combination is set-able to whatever you want it to be. Only has room for 2 or 3 keys, I keep the RV door keys in it. Other spare keys are kept inside the RV.

Mine came with 3 keys and fortunately Winnebago has a one key fits all except for the dead bolt and we don't use it. Also have two key fobs for the electronic locks, one for me and one for DW. with the 3 keys, one for DW and two for me with one always being used for ignition and the other always in my pocket with keyring. The ignition key goes next to the satellite box to make me remember to lower the satellite.

In my previous RV. used a lock box padlocked around the Propane tank bay. Propane bays are always unlocked so no problem with access.
