bgermane, you hit the nail on the head. There were two fuses behind my house battery, the 10A was blown. You are right it's a PITA to get to, but I just removed the house battery and could reach them that way, and that fixed the problem. Probably could have reached them with skinny arms and a pair of long nose needle pliers. Door locks and the GPS/Audio now work. YEAH! you are the hero of the day. Now I'm going to wonder why that fuse blew in the first place, but will give it a try and see if it keeps working. I'm a little suspect that the door lock overloaded the fuse causing it to blow, or maybe there is a bare wire exposed that shorted it out, but I could not see an issue like that. Maybe it was a defective fuse and will be ok. Keeping fingers crossed. Thanks!

Great to hear, bluesky. My stereo fuse blew while driving in heavy rain. My battery disconnect fuse blew while trying to top off my battery levels. The stupid battery doesn't pull out far enough, and I was feeling lazy. So I just removed the rear cap and flooded the top of the battery. When I slid the battery back in, water splashed onto the fuses and blew one.

Even after re-routing one of the cables, my battery tray does not pull out far enough to really see the levels in the last two cells. Now it's not the cable preventing that, but the battery tray hits the end stop.

Thanks for the warning on those fuses. Had no idea they were back there until this thread started. I'll be careful to not splash them.

On my 2014 31DS, that fuse behind the coach battery also has the Bigfoot control panel on it along with the Dexter door lock and the GPS. The fuse blew while I was trying to reprogram the door lock. The jacks were down and I couldn't move the coach until I found and replaced that fuse. Bigfoot tech support helped me find it. Now I'm gun shy on reprogramming the door lock. Just using the key for now.

Kevin, I am thinking my Big Foot jacks must be wired on a different fuse. When my fuse went out, I had the jacks down also, and they came up fine. The only thing that didn't work when that fuse behind the coach battery was out, was the electric (coach) door lock and the Audio/Navi system. And I didn't notice the Audio/Navi not working until I was back on the road again.

Mine is a Bauer EM and I replaced the batteries and reprogrammed it with the info at the link CBSS provided, thanks for that CBSS. But mine won't lock properly according to the instructions. The dead bolt doesn't extend all the way and the keypad operation is very finicky. Sometimes it beeps when the code is entered and sometimes it doesn't. Should I replace the lock or is there any maintenance tips anyone can provide?

I Had some problems with mine also. Trying taking the front push button panel off and look inside to make sure all the connections are on. They sometimes come loose when closing the door.

Getting ready to take my unit back to dealer this afternoon, looks like I may need a 4th Dexter keypad.

Yesterday (after working fine for a few weeks) when I tried to close the door right when the connection gets made at the spring loaded pins (on the hinge-side) WHAM the deadbolt flies out. Since I was closing the door it obviously could not close and bounced back open. Now whenever the door is mostly closed I can hear the latch mechanism trying repeatedly to extend deadbolt even though it is already out. Keypad buttons all still "beep", but do nothing. Eventually had to put electrical tape on the hinge-side contacts to stop 12-volts from getting to latch. It never blew a fuse, so I was worried something might catch fire!

Now I have a pretty good idea why they discontinued the Dexter keypad operating the Bauer latch assembly and went with another Bauer latch with an integral keypad powered by 4 batteries!

Let's see how this gets resolved.............

Dude, do yourself a favor and disable it and forget you even have it.
