I was researching SouthCo latches, like the one holding the side A/C radiator door closed. But this sounds like it could be a better solution! (If they hold well.)

You will be amazed how strong these are. A pair of these will hold amazing things.

Yes, those magnets are amazingly strong. But put them in one of those steel cups and it concentrates the magnetic field making them MUCH stronger!

Adam,

It has been about 6 years now so I don't remember all the details but I did change out our TriMark control module for one of the newer ones. It was not that bad and the cost of the module at that time was less than $100. I remember the wire colors for the different functions were different and the connector was not the same. Once I determined which functions were on the pins of the new module and what devices were on the old wires, I was able to connect the new module to the coach. It has been working for years now.

When we purchased the coach it only had one key FOB. At that time TriMark still had some of the older style key FOBs and I purchased two. When they came in I tried desperately to get them to program and called TriMark several times and had a technician walk me through the process. Still no joy. I finally came to the conclusion that there was a problem in the programming portion of the TriMark module. I called TriMark back and asked to send the module in for repair. They said all their electronics was out sourced and they did not have anyone on staff that could repair or troubleshoot the module. That was when I inquired about the cost of the later version and since the cost was less than I expected we ordered one with two FOBs.

The answer to your next questions is no. I no longer have any of the older style FOBs as they were given to other coach owners years ago.

Using a key to lock and unlock the door is not that bad but with your skills I am sure you could change out the control module to the newer versions if you wish to go down that road.

Bob

Dang, you read my mind!

Oh, I'm sure I could swap out the unit. I could probably build one from scratch! The limiting factor in both scenarios is not money or ability, but time, which seems to be a rare commodity for me these days...

Part of my hesitation is that if I'm going to go to the work of swapping out the module, I might as well go ahead and swap out the outside grab bar to one that has the keypad on it. But that means more work and running wires, which bring up that time issue again.

But thanks for the advice, maybe I'll have to time to do it eventually... and then I'll kick myself for not doing it sooner!

trimark

I got my fobs from trimark. I did notice that they seemed to have older versions (prior to 2008) also. It is worth a try.

I couldn't find anybody in my area that carried the fobs so trimark was nice enough to sell me the ones I needed. Try this site:

530-0100 e-FOB Transmitter | TriMark Corporation

also an update: I think I found my controller. I used the click to find it. It appears to be behind the HVAC controls. I haven't taken the HVAC panel off yet because my MH is in the shop. I really appreciate all the help. I will keep everyone updated as soon as I make sure that the controller is hidden behind the HVAC panel.

I love this forum!!

Bob helped me find mine in the same location. Removed HVAC controls and found it behind the heater hose in front of firewall. It was sitting on the front lip of storage cabinet in front of firewall!! Monaco did a good job of
Hiding the Tri-Mark!

I did it.

I found the unit behind the HVAC panel. I reset my new fobs. It only let me set two fobs. I guess I have a spare.

thanks for all the help everyone.

Do you need hands on the box to program new fobs? I bought some new fobs and turned my ignition key on 8 times (as directed in the manual). On the 8th turn the door locks. I push a button on the fob and nothing? Am I missing a step?

fob programing

My system is made by tri mark. Is yours a different manufacturer?

Same question Jeff, who made your system. Ours is a Trimark and to program new FOB's we must push a button attached to the control module. Most automobiles can program new FOB's by using a sequence with the ignition key.

TRIMARK keyless entry

Edited
I thought it was a Trimark TM867 according to build sheet. But that appears to be the keyed lock on the door (not the deadbolt or the fob).
The keyless is a Ford. Coach came with a fob I've never gotten to work. Previous owner said it worked before.
It does have a key pad on the door that does work. Just not the fob.
To program it my manual says to turn the key on 8 times and then push the fob unlock. On the 8th key turn the door locks but the fob foes not unlock it
