Unhappy Bauer keyless

SO im in this issue solving ...
i have 2013 FL with Bauer key less one of the lock quit working
Bauer was a very helpful and did trouble shooting over the phone and sent me a replacement.
now im traveling the road and the wife called me the other morning saying she couldn't exit the RW. so my first thing was use the other door that we had shut and winterized.
then i had her try few things try to unlock with key didn't work
spray some antifreeze in the latch didn't work
last option was take 3 screws of the inside off and look in there but i cant find a manual way to retract the lock pin... latch works fine but looks like lock pin might be stock or broken in there.. any one with ideas?

Sorry no one was able to answer you on the forum. It is not often that someone doesn't have something to say. I guess the good news is no one have had a problem with them.

Don't want to sound like a pessimist, but these Bauer touch pad locks are a royal pita in my opinion. Thinking of changing it out with a good ole standard door lock like I've had in the past with ZERO problems.

RVLocks seem to be pretty good over all. Mine came with my 36RL my only complaint is the batteries in the door handle. Everything seem to be backed up with a key on the outside and a manual knob painted red for the dead bolt.

Agree with the RV Lock. Tom ~ if yours are original, they have a new one that is updated and uses regular AA batteries. Comes with a remote and the keypad is in the lock handle. Fits the same footprint as the original and works like a champ.


Very reasonable cost to upgrade if you call them and the batteries last about a year. It will make a different beep series when you open it as the batteries start to get to needing replacing.


Very happy with it.

for those having problems with the Bauer - If those batteries jump a little when you slam the door and they lose contact, it resets to the default code. That caught me a few times. Just have to reset it, and make sure the springs are tight in the battery compartment.

They sent me a new all metal version - has worked great for us, except Dory doesn't have the strength to open the latch. I'm going to need to add an extension to it for her.

I have been looking for a good quality lithium AA batteries for a while. Although I can not tell a lie I have been eyeing those new locks. There is just some thing about locking and unlocking the unit with a fob.

all what i have to say is that Bauer will stand behind their product great customer service and i do agree with some of you. the old locks are much better never had a problem in my last 5th wheel. now my 15 amp keeps popping so my electric heather keep going out. hopefully temp will rise to the mid 30's next week
