Need Info on the RKE100FW Lock Controller

I just bought a 2017 REV Diplomat. It does not have a TriMark Lock system, but I found one that is identified as an "RKE100FW Rev. F" controller. Can someone please tell me who makes that system and where I can get a manual for it including pin-outs? I want to investigate what it would take to either add an exterior lighted keypad to that system, or alternately replace the system with a TriMark system and lighted keypad.

I understand that Fleetwood has been using the HDC PopLock system for many years. I looked on the PopLocks web site and found information concerning Fleetwood/American coaches from about 10 years ago, but nothing on the new units with the RKE100FW system that I have.

Here's a picture of my lock controller...


Thanks.

Why not call REV/Monaco Customer Service and ask them? There should have been a manual with your coach.

All the Monaco andf Fleetwood models use this controller, so they should have them, or know where to get them.

Here is one online source that claims to have it:

Thanks Gary, but for the information I need it's probably best just to contact the manufacturer. I think it's rather odd that there is no name on it. Does anybody know who currently manufactures this thing?

UPDATE...

I got the information I was seeking, and thought I'd update this thread with it in order to be helpful to other members who may be seeking the same information in the future.

The RKE100FW lock controller is a proprietory unit made by Magnadyne exclusively for Fleetwood. Accordingly, there is no mention of the unit on Magnadyne's web site. It hasn't changed much since Rev. A, which was first produced in 2003. As of this writing, 14 years later, they are up to Rev. F. Unfortunately, there is apparently no external lighted keypad that is compatible with this particular controller.

I called Magnadyne and they gave me the information I was seeking. They have always had very responsive customer service. I also emailed REV Customer Support, and they sent me both a copy of the key fob programming manual (with additional helpful handwritten information); and a copy of of the harness diagram, which corresponds to circuit numbers in their current dash harness diagram. That information will be extremely helpful, should I decide to swap this controller out for a TriMark controller and lighted keypad in the future. (I'll likely do that before too long, as I really enjoyed that modification in my last Diplomat. ) These two pdf files are attached below.

By the way, this brand new 2017 REV Diplomat is quite a coach. I'm extremely happy with it and glad I upgraded. For anyone interested, there are pictures of it in my first signature link below. It is my opinion that REV Group is trying to do some very good things for both the Fleetwood and the Monaco brands (which, of course, is in all of our best interests).

Thank you for wiring. I am connecting a new controller and need to know where each wire went via dash harness

You are welcome.

The reason I posted the update above is so that anyone wanting to change out the lock controller could find this information if they did a forum search. I will probably be changing the system over to a TriMark unit sometime in the near future myself, because I would like to add a TriMark lighted keypad on the outside of the coach.

HERE is a link to the pin-outs for the RKE100 harness. That should be of help to you as well.

Came across this while looking for the RKE100FW controller. I have a 2020 Fleetwood Discovery 38W. I am trying to change the lighted exterior grab handle to one with a keypad. I am not sure if this can be done but would like assistance. I would need the parts and which pins on the connector to the module I would need to splice into. Photos would be helpful. Thanks

Keyless Control Module

I am still investigating. No luck so far. TriMark is very helpful but getting info from REV or Freightliner is somewhat difficult. I have some new contacts so in a couple of weeks I hope to have direction. Will keep updating.
