Ok. So in a effort to protect my tools I locked myself out of my bus. Does anyone know of a way to break in without breaking any windows?
HELP!!!

The windows may open, you should be able to push up on one hard enough to move it. Worth a shot anyhow.

The drivers windows in my AmTrans basically don't lock, so you could also try that. The lock itself is so chintzy you could wiggle the window a bit and slide it right open.

I don't have a lock on my rear door, so I end up climbing in through there.

If your main door is air powered you just have to wait till it runs out of air and it should open. Might have to wait overnight though.
If not I'd try the roof hatches and a coat hanger

Thanks for all of the advice. I have no roof hatches and I tied the backdoor shut so that it couldn't be opened from the outside. I ended up breaking a window that I'd planned on removing anyway.

If you are running out of air, this is not a good sign. Roof hatch should have a knob

Dang I wish I had seen your post earlier, we just got back to town and I've got a full set of picks and enough skill to eventually open most locks.
