Keyless Door System - Door Latch help.

Our trailer is a 2012 Patriot Cruiser 335SS. I'm trying to get the keyless door system functioning again. We purchased the trailer used a few years ago and the previous owner couldn't tell me much about the keyless entry system other then it didn't work. I've contacted Southco and Trimark a few weeks ago but no response from either. I've also searched the internet but haven't found the information that I need. I also contact Challenger Door company and they have provided some helpful information but not exactly what I need. I've also reached out to Crossroads and waiting on their response.

Here is what I know. The door latch was changed before we purchased the trailer. The door latch is not the correct latch for the keyless entry system it doesn't have a link to connect the actuator rod linkage into the deadbolt slide (shown by the red arrow in the photo). The new door latch is a Trimark. The bracket to hold the actuator has Southco stamped into it. The keypad is Trimark. I have a mix and match of different parts here. Someone has also modified the actuator mounting bracket. It has been cut and there are portions of the bracket missing. I assume that someone did this to install the new door latch.

I was able to track down the programming instructions from the internet for the keypad. Once I programmed a new code into the keypad the actuator and keypad function as needed. Now I just need to get the correct door latch with the proper linkage to connect the actuator.

Has anyone ran into this problem or changed their door latch with this type of actuator? What is the correct part number for the door latch?

I know that I can just change to the newer style door lock with the built in keypad in the latch but I really didn't want to go that route since all my other hardware function.

We have the Southco keyless entry. Our inside handle broke, and I bought a new assembly from Lippert Components. I als found Southco extremely helpful. Our keypad was bad when we bought our Rushmore new. Southco sent me a new keypad and a keyfob free, and walked me through programming it on the phone.
