Sticking dead bolt

Have a new 400rets villa classic with keyless entry. When I unlock and go out from inside manually, I then lock the door by pressing 1-2. There is a noise of locking and when I press the code there is always a noise but 50-50 the door is still locked when handle is pulled or it opens. Is there an adjustment or should I apply some silicon spray or lube of some kind to the bolt? Thanks in advance!

I took the entire latch assy out of mine (not keyless) and filed every place with flash and rounded all the sharp edges/corners and lubed it with lithium grease and it is real easy to work. You might try the same thing. Takes about 20-30 minutes start to finish.

Thanks, I will it a try. Only had trailer for 2 days, so am still working out the kinks.
