Product Review: RVLock V4.0 Keyless Entry System
Cost: $239.99 plus five-year warranty
Tools needed: Two Phillips-head (#1 & #2) screwdrivers
Time to install: 1-2 hours
Ease of install: A bit tougher than some but still do-able by the average handy-man
When we ordered our Landmark in January 2011 we ordered it with a wireless keypad. We had quite a few problems with it over the 2.5 years that we had it before it died completely.
When you purchase the lock it comes with one key fob, but we ordered a second key fob so that we each have one.
Install was a bit more involved than Michael expected due to the lock being a bit tough to get into opening in the door. But once the lock was in place the rest of the install was pretty straight forward.
The lock can be operated using the keypad, using a key fob, or by using a key and the code is one that you set which can be helpful as it can be a number you're familiar with rather than having to memorize a whole new number again.
About 18 months after installing the RVLock it started acting funny. It worked fine if we used our key fobs but the keypad stopped working.
Michael called the company and explained the issue and they sent us a new circuit board. They also sent a set of instructions and using those, Michael did the install, reprogrammed the keypad and key fobs in less than an hour's time.
We really like this lock. It works well, the batteries last fairly long and it's easy to use. Plus, it looks nice.
Service after the sale is one of our key 'judging' points of a business. RVLock (like Heartland RVs) has stood behind their product and if we've had an issue has helped us get it fixed as soon as possible.
