Get the remote in the above linked thread. I'm virtually 100% your FCC ID will be the same.

We have the identical sister ship to yours. It's an '04 Itasca Horizon 36GD with the C-7 330HP CAT. Yes, the clearance lights do flash when unlocking/locking the coach entry door. But, they DO NOT flash when unlocking/locking the compartment doors. Wiring this controller maybe done by various people in the factory and, there's quite possibly, some wiring differences that lead to what flashes, at what times and what doesn't.

But, you say your marker lights flash when opening and closing ANY compartment door? Wow, that's not good in my opinion but, what do I know. On ours, when we use the key fob to unlock the entry door, the clearance lights flash, the interior reading light above the passenger goes on briefly and, the porch light illuminates, briefly. This gives folks time at night, to approach visually see the steps, and, get into the coach, and climb the interior steps, without being in the dark and, without fumbling around finding light switches in the dark.

Without being an electrical wizard in these situations, it almost sounds as if you're getting feedback of some sort from your compartment lights, all the way back to the brain for the security lock system. Hmmmm. I'm assuming on your coach, it's like ours in the fact that, your compartment lights are individually operated and controlled by opening an individual compartment, correct? That is, there is no switch to turn on the ALL the compartment lights, each door does that. So, with that being said, does ANY compartment door flash your marker lights or, just one in particular?

That's how my lights do also. Only 4 yrs difference in age.

I just ordered one of the remotes; so, it will be waiting when we get back to our home base. Thank you!

Scott, you asked if there was a switch for each individual compartment. That would be a No. One switch locks/unlocks every compartment.

Thanks,
Tom

I am getting the inevitable "peeling" of the clear coat, in a couple of spots, just above the roof radius. That sucks. Anyway, thanks for the nice comments. We sure like this coach. We've been in newer ones that cannot compare.

Merry Christmas to you too and, to Chris.
Scott
CDI, in Forest City, IA, redid the clear coat on the front of our coach for a reasonable price. Just keep in mind that they only accept cash or check. No credit cards; I don't think they accept debit cards, either.

Sorry for such a long delay. I was "laid low" when emergency heart surgery led to a diagnosis of lung cancer, on top of it. I'm far from 100%; but, hopefully, I can help some, as I go. Agent Orange, the gift that keeps taking...

BTW, our lights are up to 32 flashes whenever the compartments ate locked, or unlocked, using the switch inside the coach. Definitely a bad controller. I just had received my new key fob when I got sick; so, now I need to find it...
