I'm thinking there may be some back door code to turn that feature off. Anyone know what it is? BTW, this is a 2011 model.
P.S. I'm working up a way to keep an extra coach key somewhere underneath for the next time.
Coach keys are very expensive!! You are much better off getting a spare house key.
By the way, it is also possible to lock yourself out of the entire RV, as has happened to us. I usually keep all the keys, wallet, etc. in the coach while going to the club house playing cards. One night though we had visitors in our coach, and they were not aware that the door will lock itself if the little red lever is even only partway pushed down. Had to break in by pushing out a window screen.
Since that night I have a set of spare keys hidden outside the coach!
