I read and hear stories all the time about people locking themselves out of their rigs, and I think, “Well, you need a lock out system!”.
What’s a lock out system? Well dear reader, i’m glad you asked!
A lock out system is a system you’ve put in place that allows you to gain entry into your rig without ONLY the knowledge in your head, and nothing else. It’s important to think this through, and create something that’s secure, but also simple enough for you to remember.
One example is to use a magnetic hide-a-key device with a spare compartment key in it. Inside one of your compartments, in a place that’s not easily seen unless you know where to look, you have a spare door key, and this two-step system allows you to regain access to your rig without keys, tools, a phone, or anything else; just the knowledge that you can never again be locked out of your rig! 🙂
If your rig is a MH, you should take the extra step of hiding a spare ignition key inside the rig somewhere, perhaps in a coded safe, so that you can get to it if you need to, but no one without the knowledge can get to it.
Take time to set up a lock out system today so you don’t get locked out tomorrow!
