I called Essex about the same problem and they admit that they had a problems with the outside keypads and have since "fixed" the problem BUT it will cost us almost $200 to get a new and improved keypad from them. I looked into getting a different system but it is cheaper to get the new and improved keypad at our expense.

I called Essex also and after talking with them about their product, I suggested they go over to Ford and see what they are using and why it works so well on my truck and then tell me why their keypad is worthless on the coach. I'm not sure I buy the "new and improved" version.

Called John At Essex Tech service, Nice Guy walked me through trouble shooting the system, The keypad has since been updated he say they have
test in progress with >5000 cycles in hi and low temp setting.

the key pads have a 3 year warranty so I am sending him the old one and will be getting the updated one NO longer 1600 series.

Will post more as this gets resolved.

I updated from 1600 series to 1700 series in March of 2009 at a cost of $49 plus shipping. The new 1700 failed in Dec of 2010 and was replaced at no charge. Had to ship the failed unit and have John verify the failure which they did and shipped a new unit. Apparently they had some problems with the new units during the initial 20 months of production . The 1700 is NOT a direct replacement as it is larger and required use of a dremwl tool to enlarge the opening. Wiring was the same.
Warranty is 3 years from date of manufacture which is printed on the back of each unit.
