Has anyone had any luck with the RVlock keyless locks?

I purchased one several years ago and the lock has not been very reliable. When it was under warranty RVlock did replace it. Then a couple years later I replaced the logic board in the part that mounts on the door.

I have a remote pad on the side of the trailer as the vintage I have did not have a indigrated keypad in the lock.

Right now I can not get the lock to operated with the remote keypad or the key Fob that came with the lock. I have replaced the batteries with known good batteries.

I see they have the new ones on sale and before I putout close to $200 to replace mine I want to know what results anyone has had with the current models of the RVlock.

I've had one for at least five years on my fifth wheel, and one for six months on my truck camper, and never an issue with either of them aside from the keypad membranes cracking, which they sell replacements for, for ~$10.

Your statements are in past tense. Does that mean you do not have one on your current RV and if that is the case why don't you have one?

After two that didn’t work they wouldn’t get $200 of my money, YOMV.

"I've had" is present perfect, not past tense.

One came on our fifth wheel when we bought it. It never worked real well. I asked my dealer about them this year and his response was take the battery out and don't use it. The wiring is not strong enough to handle the roads yet because of poor designs.

Complete nonsense. We FT, and most people in our FT boondocking circle have them. If they were so poorly designed they couldn't hold up, all of us would be having problems... but none of us are. Since we're talking about extensive daily use and lots of BLM/USFS roads in addition to highways and poor roads, I call BS.

We haven't used a key to get into our rigs in years aside from the first day we had the TC. I immediately swapped it out and am very happy to have two less keys to worry about.

We’re FT for 4 1/2 years and have never had a problem with the factory keyed locks on either RV, personally save the $$$ for fuel & alcohol…..

Another alternative is the Bauer RV lock. We bought one, it died within a couple of days & they sent me a new one. It's worked fine for the last 4 years or so. When I researched brands it seems like they all have issues with the odd one dying early, but if they make it past the first few months, they're good for the long haul.

I'm not big on technology for its own sake, but we have the kids, inlaws and grand kids that come camping with us & it was a nightmare trying to keep up with the keys. An electronic lock was the perfect solution.
