Question for those with the keypad entry on the door

I'm not sure if I'm not missing something here. By and large, I'm pretty trusting of the folks we run into at the various campgrounds. BUT .....

Those of you who have reset your master code as instructed by the manual, by removing the keypad ..... It seems to me that anyone with a screw driver and knowledge of the procedure can quickly reset the code and gain access.

Am I not understanding something ?

Thanks,
Ken

Kenny,

ALthough I don't recall exactly how I reset my code, I don't recall having to take it apart. Think I pushed and held 1 or 2 buttons, then entered my code. I have the instruction sheet, but unfortunately it's at my camper which is 2 1/2 hours away. I'll be there Monday and can post the instructions if you need them.

I didn't take it off to reset it.

I think you need the current code to reset a new one.

He is referring to the master code not the personalized code. You have to take the keypad out and short a wire to obliterate the factory code for the master. If someone controls the master code them they can change the personalized code at will and you cannot use it anymore which is sort of silly to do anyway. If someone wants to enter your RV that nice "secure"...cough...cough...door isn't going to stop them anyway. If they are doing it as a prank just use your key to enter and take it apart and reset the master code. I just don't see a thief taking the time to take the keypad apart and reset the codes to enter the RV. My guess is that a pry bar and brute force for about 5 seconds would result in the same end game. JMHO

I may be wrong but I think you can find the instructions on the Jayco support web site.

Thanks to all for the replies.

I have the instructions, I was just curious about the ease of resetting the master password. I know they are easy to get into with a pry bar, but it's less suspicious and only takes a few seconds to remove the pad.

I think I do have a solution.....that would be to cut off entirely the wire that gets grounded so it can't be reset anymore. Just a thought..

Thanks again to all.

Ken
