Flatirons Locksmiths: Summer’s Coming – Should you Change the Locks on your RV?
By now, you’ve probably been planning on getting your RV ready for those summer road trips. While you’re doing that, it might be time to consider changing the locks on your vehicle as well. Although you may have always thought your camper was safe, you may be surprised to find out that may not necessarily be the case.
If your RV has a storage door, chances are that it’s keyed exactly the same as hundreds of other RVs out on the road. Many manufacturers use the same key and lock combination for every unit they manufacture. This could mean that the family parked next to you has a key that will not only open their RV storage door, but yours as well. In order to prevent this from happening, consider having your lock rekeyed.
It can be a good idea to have entry doors rekeyed as well. That’s because the locks that are standard equipment on most models can easily be picked by criminals by performing what is known as “lock bumping”. In fact, there are numerous websites that sell tools that are used specially for the purpose of lock bumping. In order to make it more difficult for would-be thieves to enter your motor home, consider upgrading your locks to one of the major brands that cannot be manipulated in this way.
Your RV is your home away from home, which is why it is important to safeguard your family and possessions while you’re traveling. It doesn’t cost much to change the locks on your motor home; however, doing so can provide you with the type of comfort and peace of mind you simply can’t put a price tag on.
