Keyless Door Lock

My door lock is shot due to a sheared lever connecting inside latch to bolt. Looking online, I see there are keyless door locks available. Does anyone have any experience with a certain product. Please share if you do. Thanks.

I have a travel trailer so might not help, but I have a Bauer Lock on the rear door and the RV Lock on the front. I like both very much. The Bauer Lock has AWESOME customer service. I do like the RV Lock slightly better due to its key fob option but to me it is a bit gimmicky now that I have it.

I also have the RV Lock brand. So far so good. Works as advertised.

I have the RV Lock and a friction hinge door. The friction hinge door requires a little more force to close. The RV Lock is plastic and flexes a little when pulling the door closed. It's been a good lock so far but the flex is concerning for the long term.

I agree with this, but if you use the door handle and give it a little slam, it closes without having to pull on the lock handle.

I just installed the Bauer EM and love it. When kids go away from the campsite no more worrying about "who" has a set of key.

Installation was quick and easy.

I found an exact replacement far from home at Camping World. Put plenty of silicon in it. Maybe it will last. Travel on!

My biggest problem with these types of locks is they are generally up a little higher (so you have to reach up -- think about how you unlock using your key now). When you reach up and punch in your code -- kinda easy for anyone to see, especially in the camper next to you.

I love the idea of having a keyless entry, but when the door is already pretty high, it just concerns me. Call me paranoid...but the ATM's have made me that way as well.
