Bauer EM Electric Door Lock

will the Bauer EM Electric Door Lock work on the entry door of a 2014 Seneca?
If so, is everyone having good luck with the keyless entry?

If this is the self-contained battery powered keyless Bauer door lock replacing a standard Bauer door lock, then it fit my 2013 Eagle Premier 351RLTS like a glove.

JUNK!!!!!!!!! If it's the same Bauer that is on the 2016 Northpoints, mine literally works maybe 1 time out of 20 attempts. That is no exaggeration either. My rig is at the dealer for the winter and will allegedly have the door lock replaced. Hell...once we got stuck inside because the deadbolt was getting hung up and we couldn't unlock it from the inside even. Had to exit through the second bath.

I find it very convenient. The shortcoming I've found is that it goes through a lot of batteries, but the convenience outweighs that shortcoming. To make it work properly you have to hold your finger on the first button for a couple of seconds until it wakes up and accepts that button press. I also have to make sure the door is closed tight and not resting on the dead bolt.

A set of lithium batteries have lasted me from April through November for each of the past two seasons.

Bauer recommends the use of lithium batteries on this system.

My first Bauer unit was sent to me by the door manufacturer, Challenger Door. It did not work properly. I contacted Bauer. They sent me another one for no charge. I have had zero problems since.

The original keyless entry system on my camper was from Dexter Door. That's the one that was a big pile of junk. The actuators continually failed, leaving the door lock stuck in either locked or unlocked position.

Challenger and Bauer were both great to work with to get my problem resolved to my satisfaction.

Thank you 211 that is my exact setup as you described. I contacted Jayco and they sent me an Bauer keyless door lock but it was to small for my opening so I'm guessing that I need a EM instead of the smaller version.

X2 going that route now. We had the initial problem of getting stuck inside with the roller mechanism jammed in the locked position and had to dismantle the lock to get out from the inside. No second door. After replacing it, have had no problems other than the batteries. We keep a key handy but like the convenience of using that system. We did program our own code in also.
