RVLock is great. I have had the same one on 3 different trailers. 1st on a Thor Dutchmen then moved it to my Grey Wolf. It took a little bit of fussing to get it to function exactly right on both of the TTs but it worked great. Moved it to my 2014 Columbus and still love it. I got the remote keypad, located in the propane door and two remotes. All are great, batts last a long time as in batteries in the lock itself every year, and in the remotes every two years.

Crossroads Cruiser I used to have had a factory installed keyless entry lock which worked great, but of course was "hard wired". Don't recall the mfg. Liking that so well, I installed a Bauer on my new Wildcat 275CKX. First time out this weekend I had to reprogram my code. Seems to be a common problem with this make. Should have probably spent a little more and got the Mobile Outfitters or RV Lock (are they the same?). Anyway when they are working they are very convenient. Just keep the key handy somewhere.

Bauer locks are good and their waranty and customer support is thumbs up. They replaced a 8 month old unit I purchased new on ebay. The lock I bought were supposedly their rejects that got resold by enterprising ebayer for discount.

I have the Bauer keyless lock and I'm mixed. It works well, but tends to default back to the factory code randomly.

Edit to add- I noticed that when the batteries are brand new it's no issue, it will work for a long time after the default starts happening so maybe once the batteries have a little use the voltage gets low enough that it defaults, but not so much it quits working. I have considered wiring in a direct feed from the house batteries.

Their customer service is great, my original had an issue, my dealer couldn't do anything with it so I called Bauer directly, they sent one second day air with a label to return the original. No fuss, no issue.

I just installed the lock with remote from Easy install, but I had a difficult time changing the default lock/unlock code. Tried same setup the next day, changed easily the first time. The lock can also be used with supplied keys. The lock mechanism seems more substantial than the OEM door hardware.

I HATE carrying keys.
