Keyless entry

I bet this has been cover many times on here. Our new 31.5 FBHS has keyless entry. Does anyone also have keyless entry? How did you change the code? Kitty and I read the manual...we think!!!!! If I understand it, There is an "Authorization Code" and an "Access Code". The factory puts in the Authorization code and the dealer puts in a standard access code. To change the "access code" I have to know the "Authorization Code". If I don't know the "Authorization Code", I have to remove the touch pad and ground a wire, then enter my own personal "Authorization code" then change the "Access Code" to one I choose, and I can assign up to 5 different "Access Codes"

Am I understanding the instructions correctly?

Good question.

Have thought about changing but use to what already is programmed in.

Will have to look at the manual...maybe later this week when we are camping and having a 'cool one'.

I think we need to change the code in ours too. I read the manual and it looked like a nightmare to me, I just kinda keep putting it off.

after we took delivery of ours I attempted to change the codes but there was no response from the keypad. After a month in the local dealers and 2 techs attempt to fix it I told them to forget it, I needed the trailer. When I got it home and fixed it myself in under 10 minutes. There was a loose wire in the door jam contact pad.

Changing the codes is not as bad as you may be thinking, just go step by step and it will work just as the instructions state.

I wasn't a big fan of the keyless thing but I can tell you now that we have been out a few times since I fixed it that it's a great thing to have. Just remember to keep your keys with you in case your battery should go down while you're away from the trailer.

I have that on my unit. According to the documentation that came with mine the factory authoirization code is 77777 and the factory access code is 12345. You hold the 5/6 button for 3 or 5 seconds until you hear two beeps. Then you enter 77777 and then you can change your access code. They recommend that you change the authorization code as well but like you read you have to take it out and strip a wire and ground it for a few seconds to change that code.

I changed mine, was easy. There is a yellow wire you short with the black wire until you hear a beep like the manual says. When you change the authorization code you can use that as an access code to unlock the door, I then put an access code in as well for the wife.

If you don't change it then anyone walking by with any knowledge of these systems can just walk into your trailer, when the trailer is in storage I turn the master switch I installed within the trailer off so that no one can use the keyless entry to gain access to my trailer. It is not a very secure system in my opinion but very handy when your are headed to the beach and don't want to carry keys around with you.

Thanks to all for your input. As soon as I get time, I plan attempt to change both Authorization code and Access code to codes of my choosing.

I will let you know how it turns out.

I just got my 31.5 FBHS with keyless entry yesterday and this keypad thing is crazy... I removed the access panel and I see are batteries falling on me. Where are these wires you have to ground? Do you actually have to take the whole door panel apart? Jayco should take a lesson from Ford for user friendliness...

Okay, since I posted that last message I completely took apart the door handle to find a yellow wire and there wasn't any. My keypad is part of the door latch, and removing the back means the keypad on the outside of the door comes off too, latch and all. This keypad does not seem to be the model the instructions are written for. Inside on the metal cover is a "Dexter" sticker but even searching for that yields nothing. Can anyone help me?

The keypad is payed out vertically, 1/2 3/4 5/6 7/8 * from top to bottom. There is no 9/0 key... And the instructions say the default code is 1 3 5 7 9...

In the 2013 White Hawk manual, there was a revision to the battery operated keyless entry.
Go to this link: http://www.jayco.com/pages/products/owners-manual/
section 4-11 and see if that one looks like yours.
