I am sure that everyone has seen the advertising of the Keyless Entry Locks. I was wondering who has them, was it hard to install, any problems with them and why there is such a range of prices on them ($119 to $259)?

This made me think of my keyless locks...

My POPUP trailer has a VELCRO STRIP around the door setup so all I need to do is just slip my hand thru the Velcro and flip the lock on the inside...

I do this many times when bringing in groceries... Can do this much faster then laying down the groceries and fumbling around in my pocket for the key haha....

Forgive me for poking fun at your KEYLESS DOOR post... My pocket FOB for my truck sure gets used a lot... I also have the push button lock controls on the drivers side door to gain entrance as well... Just punch in the codes...

A simple keyless entry came on our 2011 FW, but last year it finally malfunctioned and after sending off for the original specs, couldn't get it to work. Hubby installed a new one by RVLock and we love it. Hubby said it was not difficult at all to install. We love it. It has remotes as well, so when we leave our unit to walk the dogs, we can use the remote to double check because the tone that sounds when it's locked or unlocked is loud! That's the only drawback. I'm sure after awhile that other campers (and our neighbors at home) have figured out what the sound is.

A neighbor of ours put in keypads where you have to enter a code. They work pretty well for him. He was tired of camping at the lake and going down to the beach, and then a kid deciding they HAD to have something out of the camper, so he'd have to dig out the keys and hope the kid didn't lose them or leave them in the camper. Now they can all come and go and just use a code on the door.

Our Raptor came with this option. When it works, it's great. But it will quite sometimes and need re-programmed. I think batteries shake loose due to travel and also door open/close.

So we keep a key with us, but use the keyless for conveniece.

Not sure I'd spend $250 to replace. Ours is Bauer or something like that.

Right there is the only reason I can see for a keyless lock. For us I'd rather spend the money on fuel, or camping fees.

what happens when, not if, the keyless entry fails? the ONLY way I'd ever have them is if the door also had a traditional lock and key to use in case of failure or in place of the keyless entry.

I have been using a Bauer NE Keyless lock for 5 years.... I ALWAYS have a key stashed somewhere that we can get ti if need be... Never needed to go there..

I change the batteries at the start of every camping season... I also use the better batteries and have never had an issue..

My new RV had a regular Bauer lock, I just purchased another Bauer NE to replace that.. They work that well..
