All this time I thought we all had keyfob's (except for the Crusader). My keyfob works everytime (except for the one time when I had to clean the contacts) even after having the coach battery out all winter. I put the battery in last weekend and the keyfob worked!!!

Maybe a solution would be to convert the keypad type to keyfob locks.

My keypad was DOA during the walk through. The technician spoke with tech service of the manufacturer and that said they had problems with moisture getting in the keypad. Since I was a little skeptical, I insisted on checking the wiring. We found the one leg of the wiring in the door had no continuity. After tugging a little, the wire pulled all the way out! 5 minutes later, the technician used a real cool trick to pull new wiring through the solid core door.

After all that, the technician ordered a new keypad and fob. I just received the fob in the mail 2 days ago. This message has reminded me to check on where the keypad is now.

I picked up our new LaCrosse this past Friday and found the keypad to be dead. Didn't check it at the walk through, just figured I would need to program it with my own code. After finding the one sheet manual, which is lacking much information, decided to change the battery. Not a very well thought out placement as now it is sitting in a drawer until I reinstall it with double sided tape. After changing the dead battery it now works perfectly. Really wish there was a better way to change the battery without peeling it from the side of the trailer and removing the eight tiny screws that if dropped at a campsite are gone for ever. As far as the key fobs go, may just try to find the frequency of the wireless keypad and find a fob with the same and have both.

Been over a month now and 3 visits still no keyless entry...seems the Dealer nor PT has a good fix on this item, not a good thing if it don't work....but a good Selling point till you buy it.
