Source for Tri-Mark key fobs?

A post in another recent thread got me thinking:

Thanks, that's good to know! Now, speaking of fobs and programming them, anybody got a reasonably priced source for a compatible replacement fobs? I tried contacting Tri-Mark, and thought I was making progress, but then hit a brick wall with them.

I'm having trouble finding the exact fob, but I figure there must be a range of compatible fobs with only cosmetic differences. I don't need the appearance to match, I just need it to work. Anybody know which are compatible?

I don't really want to pay the inflated dealer prices for what is a non-essential luxury. But if there is a cheap enough bargain source...

I ordered FOBs from Tri-Mark. No problem at all. If you are near Lazydays they carry them.

Maybe we're not thinking about the same thing? I don't need a key, I want the remote entry transmitter that hangs on the key ring. Like the one on the left:


I guess I will give Tri-Mark another try. When I last contacted them, they were sort-of helpful, and asked for more information. When I replied with what model MH I had and the specific numbers on the back of the fob, the help stopped. Not sure why.

Cool! I'll have to check that out. Thanks!

I'm going to be camping a couple miles from Summit Racing in about a month and a half, and it'll be the perfect excuse for going to their store (and maybe coming home with a few other "essentials.")

Now that's got me thinking... has anybody converted their cargo door latches to power locks?
