Like a household deadbolt? Had never really considered that.

No, the deadbolt that comes on the keyless entry lock.

Maybe take a picture. ON the keyless entry we have now, the latch locks and the deadbolt locks.

Ah OK gotcha. Yeah the one with mine is just the dead bolt. The latch doesn't lock.

I got the impression other posters were talking about one in which both the latch and the deadbolt lock.

Mine has the handle lock and deadbolt that can be locked from outside. Can't lock the handle from inside, just the deadbolt. I figure if I am inside and somebody wants me that bad enough, that little lock ain't gonna stop them. But what they find inside might just stop them!

I can't get mine to work. When I enter the code the deadbolt just twitches. I metered the batteries and they are each at 1.6v. Which I guess really doesn't matter if the handle won't lock because I'll have to buy one that does.

Is there a way to lock the latch that I am just missing? Seems pretty straight forward?

Hit the code and then the key button? Did you set the code properly? Default code I thinks is 3715

I had an issue with the Bauer lock I had put on my Thor. Bauer has a great tech support team who walked me through fixing it and then replaced it when it was still acting funky. Great locks, only had the one issue.

As far as the lock mine is DOA and will need to be replaced. The company was very helpful.

It does however only have a deadbolt and the handle does not lock. I found out that the handle lock isn't very safe at all because all dealers have master keys that will open them whereas the deadbolt is keyed more like a house lock. Why they would just leave it out is still a mystery because it's still safer than not having it (2 is better than 1).

Anyway the main reason we wanted it was a little more peace of mind at night. Two locks will slow my 3yo down where hopefully myself or the dog would wake up. We ended up adding a retractable gate in front of the door and a wooden dowel notched out to hold the plastic cover over the handle closed. Problems solved and enjoying camping
