Fleetwood Class A door locks

Anyone ever find a vendor that can provide a replacement for the standard Fleetwood door locks? We've had nothing but problems with our door locks that include both me and my wife being locked in and locked out of our RV. The dealer keeps trying to adjust the locks and doors to no avail. Right now we want to replace the current TriMark system with something else, preferably something that allows a keyless entry.

I've looked on Amazon and rvlocks.com and everything that I've seen is listed as incompatible with the Fleetwood/TriMark RV lock system.

I talked to a locksmith and he told me the TriMark lock system is a non-standard size and I'd have problems finding a replacement.

I'm told this pn TriMark series 030-0900 is standard for the Fleetwood Class A's. There is also another series pn inside the lock where you have to remove the inside to view. It's critical.

I've also read that Class A motorhomes, because of the egress system being only 1 point of entry, that manufacturers aren't making a keyless entry lock as it wouldn't be certified for egress. I'm only going by what I have read...and the lack of options seem to support that.

MyTrimark 030-0900 lock is starting to give me some trouble....but I haven't investigated replacement parts...which I'm also told ARE available. I've also seen entire lock units available albeit pricey.

Good luck. Attached is a doc from Tri-Mark on adjustments. Also is a company that may have what you need.

Lippert makes a keyless entry upgrade for Rvs - don't know how or if it would work for you.

The problems I had with my Fleetwood American Coach entry system were mechanical. The lock unlocked, but the arms inside the door didn't always move enough to release the latch. Our door had both the keyless system and a deadbolt with key, so we got in the habit of using the deadbolt rather than risking a lock-out (or in).

Prefer to use the keyed deadbolt exclusively

Gary RVRoamer makes a great point. We have a keyed deadbolt and the keyed door latch. We prefer the deadbolt when securing the door and only use the doorlatch handle to enter/exit preferring not to lock it as I was locked in after driving it home from purchase.

The problem I had with mine was the actuator rod inside the door bowes and wouldn't throw the lock mechanism past the over center point. So I installed a long piece of very thin pliewood (lauan) to the door along the rod. I just glued the wood directly to the inside of the door panel in line with the rod. So the rod tries to bowe but it just rubs along the wood guide, which keeps it mostly straight. No more lock problems.

Edit to add...the actuator rod I speak of above is from the keyless solenoid I believe.

I thought I'd need to replace my lock a couple of times. However, just spraying it with silicone helped free everything up...
