Our 3012 36RL has a Southco lock. This lock is connected to the coach's 12 volt system via a couple of contacts on the edge of the door. The lock can be operated either by key or remote keyfob. Haven't had any problem with the lock system in nearly 3 years of ownership. The keyfobs still have the original batteries in them. I am beginning to believe this must be the most reliable lock that has been used on the Redwoods. It sure seems that many of the other locks have had way too many reliability issues which is very unfortunate for the folks.
