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.

In December 2014, we ordered a new lock. We had heard about the new RVLock and were willing to try it as the reviews we were seeing were quite favorable.

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.

RV There Yet Chronicles

My husband, Michael, and I have been living fulltime in our 2011 Landmark Key Largo since April of 2011 and LOVE every minute of it. 

When Michael retired from the US Army in October of 2012 (after 29 years of service) we hit the road and haven’t looked back. 

We usually work in the south Texas oilfields in the winter and spend time with our two sons and their families in the summer. We travel and sight-see as much and often as possible.
