Key remote

Neither remote lock opener is working on my 2019 Red. Will check the batteries but any other reason?

Make sure the contacts on the door and door jamb are clean.

+ 1 99% of the time this is the cause for the remote door lock not to work. Clean the 2 silver metal squares on the forward door jamb of the entrance door.

I also have a RED 33AA. The key fob wonít unlock the door unless Iím within 5 feet of the door. Since the coach is new, I had assumed this was normal. Now not too sure. As a comparison, my jeep keyfob will unlock over 200 feet away.

Guess Iíll try new batteries too.

You might want to check the antenna which Tiffin usually coils up and sticks it up on the frame, usually in the first bay on the PS near the center. Itís a thin black wire. I have moved them on both our Tiffins and it improves the distance the fob will work.
