Retrofit Wireless Storage Compartment Locks

I just got a new Itasca Meridian. It has a wireless electric lock for the main door, but not for the storage compartments. Has anyone ever retrofitted electric locks into a coach? It's a Fridgette controller for the door lock and the latches are Trimark.

Thanks in advance.`

mrschwarz, congratulations on the new Meridian. What you are looking to do will be expensive as a retrofit as you will have to modify doors as well as add wiring and solenoids. It can be done but I doubt it will be something you will end up doing.

You might look into an existing system on one of the coaches that provide this already. Friend of mine has a '96 Monaco Navigator that includes this feature. Maybe you could see if parts are available for one of these older coaches and purchase the components. You'd still have to wire it, but it seems to me if the individual parts could be retrofitted to your coach, the wiring could be done, although probably not easy.

Personally these types of challenges interest me.
