Oh - one more thing . . . the reason I still have the keys outside the camper and in my hands is because I had the camper winterized at the dealer's. He says he locked only the top lock not the deadbolt>!?#?$? I may have locked it inadvertently when I brought the camper back to its permanent storage spot and was getting in and out of it a couple of times.

A locksmith can open it and also give you advice on how to correct. If you don't have the right key, you're not going to open it especially the deadbolt.

The deadbolt and handle locks are different. The handle lock is universal, so just about anybody can open it with their key. The deadbolt is unique.

We replaced ours with an RVLock v4.0 keyless, which can be opened/closed with a key, a combination, or a wireless FOB. The FOB can be disabled with a switch on the indoor portion of the lock assembly.

I use the RVlock v4.0 also. This is the absolute easiest way to do it. No key needed, it takes seconds to lock/unlock. The keyless unit locks the dead bolt, so it's more secure.  I also love that the system can be programmed with up to an 8 digit pass code. I hate 4 number pins

I was locked out once this summer, but I just sent my youngest child through the cargo access and up through the seat.  Works well if the child is small and flexible enough!LOL

That's a trickier proposition with the 179 if you've replaced the mattress with memory foam, since the only cargo access is under the queen bed.
