    My RV lock is sick

    The top key no longer locks.
    The auto lock feature now needs the code to lock.
    And once again the keypad sticker has flown the coop?
    The attached picture is the model I have.
    Thanks

    Can you remove it from the door, disassemble it, and see if anything has come loose or contacts corroded? I had a problem last summer with our conventional lock being very loose. Took it apart and found a nut that holds part of the bolt mechanism was coming off. Simple fix.

    Yes had it apart twice. First time when I was in Yellowstone found loose ends inside.
    Today it appears that the top key hole has a very small circuit board? Maybe it's bad. I just PM 'd RV Lock's. Hopefully they can provide me with the replacement circuits.

    FWIW...we have 4 locks...after a year, one door lock started to bleed a new set of batteries in about 20 days ...contacted company....they sent a new (~$10.00) circuit board free and cured the problem...a great after.the.sale.company IMO!

    In Florida The adhesive dries out and the plastic decal becomes brittle. I'm thinking it's probably the fourth or fifth time. But the environment does take a toll on these things.

    RV Lock is very responsive. Call them. My remote failed and they sent me a new circuit board. I still have the board, because when changing it out I found a bad solder joint and fixed it.

    I have replaced all my locks a few years ago with RVlocksandmore single key system. I have never had an issue with my key not turning or anything else.------- hmmmmm!
