Apex Keypad operating Smart Beds

My Apex has a Keypad which is supposed to open and close the passenger side Smart Beds. The door jamb has the access code to use. However, it does not operate the beds. I can not find anything in the TriMark manual that addresses this operation. To anyone who has SmartBeds - how did you get this to work?

Also, in the HWH Hydraulic Pump Compartment - the far right switch "Master Switch" - should it be left "On" or "Off" ? Thanks to all for your help.

The keypad only locks and unlocks the front door.

You have the prototype Apex and yours used a remote control to operate the drawers. They never used this system again.

The HWH master switch should be on to enable operation of the smart bed controls.

This is the placard I was talking about. The remote key FOB does not operate the first bed. It (1st bed) can only be opened by first accessing the Hydraulic compartment.

You got me.... I only witnessed the original owner using the switch inside the hydraulic bay.

Wish I could find Mr Ellis. He left such a huge amount of info with the coach - and even some spare parts. I would like to thank him and maybe ask a few questions.

I saw Mr. Ellis use a remote to operate the beds. Is it missing?

The 6 button remote operates the Driver side beds and the rear Passenger side bed. The front bed can only be opened via the switch in the Hydraulic Bay. I am currently looking for replacement remotes as only 1 still works.
