I have seen a few of these around, and also at CW for sale. Looks to be an intriguing device. Has anybody had any experience with them? How is the install routine and reliability?

Check out the installation video. It looks like it's pretty easy to install.

I have one on my trailer. They are great. My wife has Multiple Sclerosis, and when the steps are down, it is a reach for her to use the key to unlock the door. She broke off 2 keys before I went to my RV dealer and got his unit. Anything I can do to make it easier for her.

They are very easy to install. Like any latch, they need to be put on and double and triple checked to make sure all is in the correct place. The door unit takes AA batteries, which can be changed in about 2 minutes with a phillips screwdriver. The door latch batteries are good for about 3 months, more if you don't use it as often as we do. There are 2 keys included, and the directions will tell you to make sure you always have the key in the event the batteries go dead while you are out. I found that when the door doesn't respond as quickly after punching the code, or it seems to be dragging, then replace the door batteries. I also took mine apart before installing and put some light grease on the gears.

Something that is worth saying.....If you are on the inside of your trailer, and feel the need to lock the door in a hurry, you don't have to go to the door. Just punch the button on the remote. You will get 3 quick beeps when the door locks/unlocks.

Regards,

I was hoping to install one on my motorhome, but my lock is slightly bigger. Be sure to check the dimensions which we provide in the product details. It appears the trailers use a narrower lock design than the motorhome do. I did get a chance to play around with it and it appears to be very good quality.

If you find you cannot use this model, we do have another coming very soon that will feature a keypad on the door handle. It will not have a remote, but at least you can get in without a key if needed. I will include details when they come available.

I didn't know that Motorhomes had different size doors. I know that there was a keyless entry that the dealer wanted to put on, however, because my door is thicker (artic package) it wouldn't fit. I know that I really like the keyless entry that I bought. It works fine, and has saved me from getting a broken key out of the door!

We have one installed on our 5th wheel. We like it, but I can't get it adjusted so the door closes easily. I think I may have over tighten it when I first installed it. Now cannot get the door to close with out slamming it!
