OK, all the trailers I have owned have had dual door locks.  My current 177SE uses the same key for both (and I think this has been the case in my past trailers).  I know one lock operates a dead bolt (which can unlock from the inside) and one lock latches the handle.  

My question is why do we need both?  Wouldn't just a dead bolt lock be enough?

It is my understanding that the deadbolt locks are different on all trailers (to a point) and the other lock is mastered to dealer keys. So, in theory if you take your trailer to the dealer for service and lock the deadbolt lock the dealer can't open it.
That's how they explained it to me, as they checked to make sure I didn't lock it! Hope that makes sense.

Yep. Roccosamore is right. The deadbolt can only be opened with your exact key cut. There's a master key which will open the latch lock.

Make sure you have your key number recorded somewhere.

That is my understanding as well.

We made some extra copies and tried them out just to make sure they worked. They did.
 
Fun Fact: If you accidentally lock yourself out of the bathroom, (stupid story), the same key will open it up.

Hello,

So on my last RV I found that all had the same keys! Your keys would open anyone elses and vice versa. I then purchased from Amazon an RVLock v3 Keyless handle with wireless keypad and removte Fob and solved the issue.
