I don't disagree but my comment mentioned one person remaining at the pump while the other (with the fob) inadvertently taking it off to the restroom. So this is an unintended bad outcome - not a case of outright rudenes.

How about if the battery in the FOB dies in the middle of nowhere and you have no replacement battery?

Most other vehicles with keyless ignition, you can hold the fob close to the button, and push it.

They also have a metal shank key, that is removed to unlock the door!

The site team has had to do yet another cleanup, in yet another thread from some of the same members.

The most important guideline, and the one that is the most enforced, is the 'play nice' one.

Here is a link and copy to it. Please read it. If you don't agree with it, or it's just not something that you are capable of doing, then let one of the site team members know thru the Private Message function.

http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...ork&page=rules

Excerpts:

Be Courteous! Our philosophy is that we want The Forest River Forums to be an online reflection of the RV'ing community. Treat each other with respect just as you would around a campfire. Here are some general guidelines that we expect you to follow:

Do not take every opportunity to express your disagreement, incite argument, insult each other, or fan flames. Voice your opinion respectfully and then let it go.

-----------------------------------------------

This one below is so important, it's even emboldened and a different color in the site guidelines:
  • We take the "be nice" rule VERY seriously! We do not tolerate any rudeness.
Any member here who has been in these forums for very long, already know this...and also know that posts not adhering to it are GOING TO BE DELETED. It seems like a silly waste of your valuable time, to type up rude, insulting, or trolling posts....when you know they are most likely going to get deleted since they don't adhere to the play nice guideline. It would be akin to waxing your RV in a rainstorm.

We would think that your time would be better spent helping your fellow friends, and typing things that will be allowed to stay so others can read it.

I have unapproved several of the recent posts as several posters continue to attempt to push others buttons despite a request from the site team to play nice. We will continue to monitor this thread. If the tone of the thread continues to be antagonistic the entire thread will be deleted. The forum's mission it to provide assistance and helpful communication between all Forest River Owners and prospective owners.

I have now and have in the past had several vehicles with the fob. They always work--until they don't. My C6 Corvette could not be started with a dead fob battery,even if inserted in the slot. The key gave you access to the trunk which you had to crawl into to try and reach mechanical door release, but still car won't start without new battery. My Huyndai Genesis had to get a new computer (not just reprogrammed) because it wouldn't start. They told me they had ones that wouldn't shut off.

The keyless start on our Ford Edge makes the battery run down while towing.

The XLT has a one key system, so it's not a big deal to carry them. With all the complexities of a mh, I would rather keep it simple.

Awesome...finally get to pick the brain of someone who actually owns a XLT!

First...are you flat-towing your Edge? did not know you could.

So one key system - does that apply to the cargo doors as well or is that a separate key.

Would greatly appreciate you starting a Berkshire XLT 43A thread and give the forum a complete review (picts are nice too ) you your new prized possession!
