Anyone upgrade camper door locks?

Hi everyone,
I'm looking into upgrading our TT factory locks to the electric pin code locks.

Has anyone done this yet?
Any tips? Click image for larger version

Do a search for LOCKS and you'll find several threads.

Electronic key ad

We upgraded ours to a Bauer brand. Like it veryuch although having a problem with it resetting back to the default code as opposed to the one we selected.

Watch the.video online and disregard thr.paper.directions included with the unit. They.are inaccurate.

A Bauer

We put a Bauer type, which looks like the one you have as a pic, on our 5th wheel, it works great and we also really enjoy the freedom of not having a key in our pocket. One word of advice however, when we first installed it something happened with the batteries and we could not get the pin code to work and the factory default pin did not work as well. Luckily the rig was at home and we had a key. I took the lock set apart and replaced the batteries with new ones and all was fine and is still fine. I did not check the old batteries when I took them out so maybe they were just bad. You'll love it!

Thank you everyone for the feedback! I was a little iffy if it would actually work or not.
We have the keyless entry at home so I'm certain that I would forget the keys somewhere haha..

Yeap - we put one similar to that one for our Motorhome. We love it. One of those things we wish we would have done years ago even back in our TT days.

I have one for sale, two years old, had it on our 5er, worked great, you need to replace the batteries like every three months. Won't fit on our MH.

I bought the same one you have pictured. It was refurbished on Amazon. I think I paid around $116 for it. Installed it very high end batteries and it works great. As it was refurbished, it didn't come with mounting screws. I tired to use the screws that came with the old lock. They were too long and had to add washers to make them work. Sent an email to the company telling this this and they sent me a complete set of screws and mounting plates for the latch. I think its a great addition.
