RV Lock Keyless Entry

I installed the RV Lock Key-less entry handle this past weekend. Went in mostly without a hitch except getting the new handle into the door. Once the old handle was out I had to trim away two small bits of fiberglass from the hole in the door to get the guts of the new lock in. I used a utility knife to just gently core away just enough to get the threaded studs into the door. After that it was a breeze and works great. Programmed the entry code and the key fob. Easy peezy, Bob's your uncle and it was done.

We have one of those and really like it. The only problem is that the handle that you fold over in front of the door will rub on the lock in transit. We padded ours to keep it from damaging the lock.

Mine must be higher or lower, the grab handle clears this lock and the original.

We all know these things are built to extremely tight specs.

I tried muscling it in, but didn't want to break the lock.

I purchased the model with the separate key pad as our door is so high. Figured it would be easier to deal with if we didn't have to stand on the steps to unlock. Hope to install it at the end of the month.

Be sure to mount it where it is least exposed to any moisture. Mine was mounted to left of the door directly under the awning arm & EVERY time it rained or I washed the coach the keypad would start beeping til I removed the battery (which has VERY TINY screws) & let it dry out, finally gave up & took it off .

Either way it feels like a much sturdier handle and assembly than the stock handle.

It looks as though I have the same problem. What exactly did you use as padding? Do you have a picture?

Why not fold the handle back, instead of forward over the door?
