The rules one can have with both you and your spouse having a set in addition to the shuttle driver and leaving a window open when rigging up are good.
But I would recommend setting up some sort of unique spot on the vehicle, more unique than in the gas cap area, a spot hard to get to but where the key cannot come free on rough roads etc. (I don't trust the magnetic holders. Best if held by a short wire.)
It can be really hard to get to but be a lifesaver.
One extra key somewhere not visible even if under the rig looking up.
No need to discuss where that might be.
I noticed on fires that Park Service employees often have 'break in' kits and are OK with them. While they may not be fast they open a lot of visitors car doors and can be very helpful. The standard tip is telling them thanks.
