Still try RV Locks. If they don't have it now, let them know you need one and to keep you in mind when they start making them.

I have gone through two Bauer sets, and the current one doesn't work either. My neighbor has the RVLock one, and it works great.

Yes, we replaced our own 2 years ago and love it!

Can't Recommend RVLock

We bought an RVLock based on the many YouTube reviews praising it. Unfortunately it seems many of those praises come immediately after receiving their unit for free...they stick it on and say it works great, but you rarely get a longer term follow up review, and even more rarely from someone who paid full price. Our experience was that while the unit functioned okay, its powder coat finish quickly began flaking. We contacted RVLock customer service and were rebuffed that this could not happen unless we were barreling down a gravel road peppering the handle with rocks...which they would not cover under warranty. I assure you we drive our rig gently, and have been stationary during most of the installed time. There is no chipping anywhere on the sides of our rig. Further the flaking is occurring on the inside handle as well. After my wife posted her dissatisfaction on Facebook, RVLock did grudgingly send us a replacement handle. So I can't recommend them based on their customer service attitude. Otherwise the lock works okay, but for the price, if I had it to do over I would choose another brand.

RVLOCK. Got mine yesterday and installed today. Had a little trouble getting it to slip into opening (as advertised). Had to remove a little styrofoam to get it to fit snug. operator error kept me from setting up entry code but finally figured out it was me, not the lock. Mated the remote was easy and now I am ready to go, probably will be late this month or July. Thinking about New York City.....NOT!

We’ve had it for 5 months of constant use and have no complaints.

Mine must be older model, has 4 AA batts included. Was on sale $159.99 on Amazon but sold and shipped by RVLOCK, probably a close out sale.

I have purchased two different versions of Rvlock. The first was on sale and was using the same nameRVLock and was on sale and when comparing the pictures on the internet looked about the same just $100 cheaper. I got what I paid for. The cheaper price equaled a cheaper door Lock and no customer service. No internet site for phone number to call. I tried to resolve my problem but ended up filing an eBay claim and getting my money back. I then paid the price and purchased the RVLock with the Lion. It was more expensive but well worth the price. The touch pad feels like it will last, easy to install and everything works great! Plus great customer service.

We purchased a keyless lock for our 3121 last year at the MOC Rally from one of the vendors - G & L RV Specialties. The phone number on our receipt is 361.947.1192
Very nice couple and they gave a great presentation at the rally.

The lock I have on my Mobile Suites is an RVlock brand. Had to order a couple of the membranes that have the numbers, etc on it as the original did not even last a year. On their website, the membranes get a lousy rating. The new membranes are about $12 plus $3 or so for shipping. They could have been sent by mail in an envelope!
All that said, I do like the lock and may get one for our 3121RL Monty as well. Ours is a 2019 and the lock is different from the one the OP posted.

Picked up two at the rally a couple of years ago and love them. Don't forget to take a key or hide a key somewhere in case a battery goes dead while your out or you will not be able to get back in to your unit.
