RV Product Review: Bauer Electric RV Door Lock For Trailers and Motorhomes

Long gone are the days of having an ignition key and a door lock key in your passenger vehicle, actually so many of the new vehicles coming out today don't even have a key at all.  But yet, the RV seems to have been left in times long forgotten.   I have read posts in RV forums from new RV'ers who asked where the key fob was after getting handed a key chain full of keys.  It is surprising that RV manufacturers continue to lag so far behind in technology on so many different levels.  But on door locks?

So when Bauer Products released their electric door lock for trailers, the Bauer NE, earlier this year the whole industry took a step forward.  And most recently the motorhome version, the Bauer EM,  which made me (a motorhome owner) very happy. I know what some of you are thinking, keeping it simple is a good way to be.  But even on my 11 year old Jeep Liberty that key fob has never let me down, and I haven't even changed the batteries in all of those years.

The Bauer Electric RV Door Lock features an integrated easy to use key pad which holds your personal 4 digit entry code.  O.K. so we didn't quite make it to the top step of the technologic ladder with a key fob for this lock, but there is good reason.  This lock was designed for ease of installation and requires no wiring, actually the only tools you need are a phillips and flat head screw driver.  That and 4 AA batteries which will keep this lock operational for the entire camping season.  Since the system is not connected to a constant power source, a wireless receiver would deplete the batteries all to quickly and the reason this door lock does not have a key fob.

Since Bauer put together a great installation video (Bauer Electric RV lock video) I will skip those details, but will say it is super easy and takes all of about 5-10 minutes, a little longer if you need to replace the striker plate.  What I love about this lock is the convenience it provides and not having to carry around keys!  Many early mornings while camping, I am off on a bike ride and I don't want to carry keys while the rest of the crew sleeps in.  Or when we are off hiking, or if we need friends to let our dogs out while we are away or if the guys go one direction and the women another and the person who has the keys is not the first one back.  There are so many reasons this RV door lock is a must have RV accessory and I am sure you will find many of your own.  The quality of the lock is excellent and heavy duty with features like a lighted touch pad for night time entry and nice big buttons to easily enter your code on.  There are a number of audible beeps to let you know when the door is locked or if there is an obstruction and it cannot lock.  Your even notified when the batteries only have a limited number of uses left in them so you have time to get replacements.

So if you have been looking to bring a little more 21st century convenience to your RV the Bauer Electric RV Door lock is a great place to start.

  5. Electronic door lock hardware such as door handles, doorknobs makes a statement. Impressive and easy-to-use door openers and entry systems play their part in welcoming visitors to the premises. In other words, while, serving their original purpose, safety, and security, door lock hardware is decorative.
