HA! I think I heard that song today on my free 3 month trial of Sirus/XM radio! Seriously, I did.

Read this thread (warning, long first post from me, but what else did you expect?):

"The Trailer" is home!

Oooo, did not know that, thanks. Is it a spray or grease or what? I might need a small spray can of that stuff, if it comes that way.

Hi Laura! Thanks for posting this. I have been looking at these locks, so was delighted to get it at 30% off (didn't see it early enough to get the 40% discount). Will be taking it with me when I pick up my 2nd gen 19 next April!

Another reason to not get it, is that refuse to ship it to you.

40% off if you order from 12AM to 12PM today (Friday, Nov 25th).

30% off if you order from 12:01PM to 11:59PM today

And 25% off Saturday - Monday.

Normally they just offer 20% off for their various promotions, so I jumped on this one!

Here's the link to their site:

https://www.rvlock.com/?utm_source=R...eid=7b839135ae

This is the lock I got:

https://www.rvlock.com/collections/r...eid=7b839135ae

PS - free shipping!
Apologies for not selectively quoting but having trouble with select on the iPad.

I think this is the dumbest way to have a sale. 40% off first- so since I missed that there is no way on earth I'd pay more for the same thing, so why do they bother? It would make more sense to start at 20% off with the worry of it selling out, and then increasing the % off as time goes by.

Anyone in marketing want to explain this? I always feel like sending the company a note saying that if I didn't want it at 40% off I sure don't want it at 30% off!

Though I like the type of lock- was just wishing I had one!

Graphite comes as a powder in a little plastic bottle with a nozzle. You give the bottle a shake and then squeeze it to shoot the powder into the lock.
I see there is a spray can version too. Should find it at any hardware store.

About door security:

The new flat door is more secure than the curved fiberglass door, mainly because of the way the door fits the jamb, and because of the hinging difference.

About convenience:

We are all pretty much used to keyless entry systems for our cars, and some even have them on their house (us included). They come in pretty handy.

The keyless entry won't enhance the security of the trailer over a standard key lock. What it will do is give you a combination to enter with no key, or remote keyless entry. And for those who are worried about losing the remote, you can always use a key when the remote isn't around, or just enter the combination. The battery life of the remote is similar to those used in vehicles - the flat round 2032 batteries, and they last quite a while. If I had the new style door, I wouldn't hesitate to swap out the lock for a keyless entry model. YMMV.

I got it last week, but I'm waiting until Dirk gets home next week for installation. Gotta give him something to do on the new trailer!

I received the lock last Saturday. When I opened the box a red plastic handle fell out. It had been sheared in two. There was no damage to the box so I assume the red handle broke prior to the shipper putting the lock in the box. I emailed RV Lock immediately and included a photo showing the broken handle as well as a loose washer that was floating around in the box. Didn't get a reply so on Tuesday morning I went to their website and used their Contact Us form to report the problem. Still no reply so yesterday afternoon I called the number on the website and the recording said I had reached them after hours. This was in the middle of the afternoon their time. Don't know what's going on but I have a broken lock and so far no response from the vendor.
