Hi, I'm Robert. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Ask Your Own RV Question

Normally if the ignition key is missing you have to replace the ignition switch with a new key. I would contact Monaco tech support with the VIN number and see if they can tell you which ignition switch is required, I am not sure due to the age but it is very likely you would be able to pick one up at a local auto parts store. When I worked tech support at another RV manufacturer this was a common request for a key and always the ignition switch had to be replaced which comes with a key.

I hope this points you in the right direction.....
