We installed an RVLock 4.0 five and 1/2 years ago and love it. This year it started acting up. RVLock tech support suggested a couple of new circuit boards ($9.99 each). Today, it's all better. You can read details here (https://heartlandowners.org/showthread.php/48776-What-did-you-do-to-your-camper-today?p=626531&viewfull=1#post626531).

Great support!

Great support!Agreed...I had one of four locks that would drain a new set of batteries in 30-40 days...contacted them....sent me a new board at N/C (was about 1 year old) and worked fine since.

I wish they would make a lock that would fit on my 4200 cyclone with the full window in the door. Even the narrow one is still too wide to fit without hitting the window frame.[emoji3525]

Sent from my iPad using TapatalkI installed the compact version in both of our full-windowed CY doors. They fit and work fine...you just need to modify the frame a bit is all.

Would you happen to have a picture of how you modified the frame? Thanks.

Sent from my iPhone using TapatalkI pulled the stock lock out and set the RVLock into the factory cutout, traced around with a pencil, then cut the door frame on pencil mark. This allows the lock to fit flush to door and then fully assembled it. Don't forget to seal everything up well after trimming the frame.

Thanks LBR for the info and pics. I still wish they would make a lock that would fit in that space so we wouldn’t have to cut my frame. I worry about down the road if I had a problem with Rv lock and wanted to change it out to something different I would have to deal with the cut window frame. This is a common door setup so why not just design one for these doors. However your work around and install looks great.

Did they explain the new feature on these new boards, it’s no longer necessary to use the code to lock the door when leaving, just hold the lock button for a couple of seconds till you hear the beep, then you’ll hear the lock locking. Works great.

They didn't mention the new feature. I'll have to try it out.

That feature alone is almost worth paying for a new board.

Love this feature, except that now we’ve worn out (cracked) the keypad at the lock button! Need to order a replacement.

Super easy to replace when you get it. Peel off the old membrane, stick on the new.

I am happy that Rvlock makes the replacement parts not only available but very reasonable in price to keep the lock operating and not have to reinvest a small fortune when parts wear out or break.

Works great.An FYI for everyone with these locks...we bought 2 pass-thru compartment locks and 2 of the V4 Compact door locks in February of 2017....that puts them at 2.5 years old.

All 4 of these locks have this feature of not needing the code prior to pressing the lock button, so it is not exactly a recent option of them...[emoji4][emoji4]

Only on the main door lock has this feature, not the bay door locks, I replaced all of my bay door latches with RVLocks also so I always use my remote to activate/deactivate them.

Guess I'm the lucky one as all 4 of our 2.5 year old locks can be locked without the code first.

As mentioned above, the circuit boards are very inexpensive....last year they were only about $10 each.

Mine are three and a half years old. I replaced my main door memory module about one and a half years ago it was acting up so I contacted Chad Harris (the owner of RVLocks). Chad didn’t mention anything about the bay doors at that time.

I have one main door and six bay door locks all keyed alike. In addition I purchased the freestanding controller that has the all lock function being my bay locks are on a different channel than my main door lock. I’ve been very pleased with these locks. After reading your post I’m glad to hear that this feature is available on all of the,

in addition RVLocks is presently running a “Labor Day Special” 20% off sale, go to RVLock.com for more info.
