    Locks on propane doors

    I’m picking up my 2021 337RLS on Thursday. If I remember correctly from walking around it there are no cam locks on either propane door or the storage compartment under the hitch pin. Am I crazy or is this correct. If I’m correct what do other owners of this unit do? I’d like the slam locks and the propane doors and center storage compartment to be keyed alike. If I’m correct in my assertion why would grand design not place locks on these doors?

    The front compartment door under the pinbox should have come with a lock. As for the propane tank doors, no lock on them. In case of an emergency, when one needs to quickly turn off the tank valves, you donít what to be fumbling for a key to unlock the door.

    Not to mention the straps that hold the bottle's in have a place to put a lock on them.

    It’s neither safe nor in accordance with requirements to lock a propane compartment door. First responders need access.

    That’s good to know. I’m coming from a travel trailer where tanks were on the tongue. Thank you.

    Additionally, Locks on Propane Storage Doors are illegal.

    The Propane Doors Must Remain Unlocked AT ALL TIMES !!!

    All doors should be keyed alike. Mine came that way. One key opens everything.
