Remote Entry/Cargo Lock Problem
Having trouble with the SCS/Frigette keyless remote entry system on my 07 Itasca Ellipse 40FD. Following heavy rain here in Ca last month, the keyless system quit working entirely. The dealer found a faulty control unit and replaced it under extended wty. Then, I drove 500 miles mostly in the rain and now the entry door and patio side cargo bays still work with the remote but not the road side bay doors.
Nasty road conditions had gotten all of the bay locks dirty and I could even hear the grit inside when I used the key. I cleaned the locks out as well as I could with silicone spray lube and removed the lock mechanism covers from the inside of the bay doors. There doesn't appear to be contamination inside the lock and I can see the solenoids attempting to engage when the remote is pushed... there's just not enough "umph" to actually engage the lock. After the cleaning, several of the doors will now lock with the remote but not unlock. I should add that the buttons inside the coach used to lock the doors have the same effect as the wireless remotes.
Should I be looking for a ground wire whose connection got dirty in the rain and is creating a high resistance and voltage drop to that side of the coach?
Does anyone know where the control unit is located on this coach?
Any insight will, as always, be greatly appreciated.
