Robe hooks, from Lowes. I had to put a small washer to extend the width of the hook to fit the sink cover & cutting board.

This is one of the cheapest & most useful addition I have found, I loosened a screw on the air conditioner vent & mounted it there. It comes on at night when you walk in to the bathroom & stays on for about 45 seconds after you leave to get back to bed. http://www.harborfreight.com/led-mot...ght-95276.html

I own a 2014 Unity MB. I recently locked myself out of my van, and decided to put a spare key for future access. I have a combination lock on my rear storage compartment. I mounted a "Hide-A-Key" lock box on the upper inside rear wall of that compartment, and now store the Van Ignition Key in the vault. The lockbox has a different combination than the lock on the rear compartment storage door lock.

Gamma:

Can you post a picture of the outside storage compartment combination lock or a link to the combination lock that you installed on it.

We are trying to get a set of spare keys and are having trouble doing so. Where can we get a set of keys made for the LTV Unity ?

Our dealership where we purchased our MB Sprinter told us when they gave us our 2 sets of Sprinter keys, if we lose them, we will need to purchase a replacement through an authorized MB dealership. Approx $400.00!! J&B

This is for the RV door, not the chassis doors.

I purchased the bauer key pad entry lock. Installed easily and one of the better mods so far. Every want to pop into the rv in the yard to futz around but not have the $400 key in your pocket. No problem, just punch in your code.

Only caution is it is battery operated. After a bunch of uses in a year it started to slow down retracting the pin. If you leave your keys hidden inside it would be a problem lock out situation, unless you zip tie a cheap bauer key outside.

An extra key from the MB dealer in Albuquerque was under a $100 and there was a service charge of around $50 or $60 to program it.

Needless to say, after having a new key made, I found the one I lost. Now I have three keys!
