Spare Keys

Hello from NC. I'm so excited to find other Sunline Camper folks.
I'm wondering if anyone can suggest where to get a spare door lock key made. I have tried HD & Lowes but since it's an older camper (1996) they don't have any blanks that work.

Thank you very much for any help ~

Happy evening to all ~ Lee

P.S. This is the first time I have ever done a forum so if I am doing anything incorrectly please feel free to give me any pointers

Welcome!

I assume you have the large square TriMark key? Ilco makes a blank for it with a slightly smaller head, but the key itself will work. I would try a smaller hardware store that might have a bigger selection. If that doesn't work, an RV dealer should probably carry the blanks, even though they probably can't cut them.

Thumbs up Keys

Mainah & Sunline Fan ~

Thank you so much for the information and for responding so quickly. You just made me a very happy camper (And yes, Sunline Fan, I was talking about the large square key.)


Hope you all have a great day ~ Lee

Hello zipdog,

I just happen to be a locksmith. Since I still haven't taken delivery of my 1982 Sunline 15.5 SB, I haven't had a chance to look at the keys I'll need to rekey the lock. Once I pick up my Sunny this Saturday, I'll check out the blanks that it uses.

Best of luck,
Bill

Hello and welcome. Congrats on your new Sunny!

I have 3 keys - front door and 2 cargo doors. I was able to get them copied at Lowes. He did not have an exact match for I believe the cargo doors. He gave me the closest he had. He told me that if they did not work to bring them back. All 3 work fine.

Thanks Thomascine. I'm so excited to be a Sunliner groupie She is an amazing camper!!!!

Lowes was able to copy the cargo keys but not the door key. If the other key ideas don't pan out, I might see if you could take a picture of the one you had made and I can bring it to my lowes to see if they can try it.

Thanks so much for your help.

Happy Camping

I think you'll need an Ilco #1601/1602/1603/1604/1606 key blank, depending on the kind of key your original is. Basically means the length and size of the slots cut in the key shaft. Looks something like this:

Thank you all for your rapid replies and super helpful information. I found an old-timey key making shop a few towns away. They did not have an exact match but used a Nissan double sided key blank they thought would work....IT DID!!!!!

Bill, I've attached a picture of the original keys from my '86. Sunline went from a protruding knob style handle with residential style deadbolt to a recessed handle and deadbolt unit in 1991.

Sunline Fan, thanks for the pics of the keys. I see that your deadbolt key is a Weiser. Mine is a Weslock, which will accept a standard Kwikset blank. Once I find a Kwikset knob, I'll rekey both to match.

Happy travels,
Bill.

Yep. I can't say for sure if that was original or not, but I do remember both were keyed alike.

The one on the right is the key for the fresh water fill, and people have struggled to find that one over the years. It's a really flimsy key, just stamped metal it appears, but it's what opens that.
