Nicki; I think Barry summed it up pretty well.  Thanks Barry for you research and comments. 

My AP version did require as I mentioned, making a bezel.  Below, is another idea, although a bit more pricier.

As far as battery life, I installed back in August 16, and replaced the batteries once so far in February.

GREAT INFO Ron!!! And, as a FYI, Amazon has 4 different models of Accutire gages - one programmable - but bay's price is lower.  Anyway, thanks -- I ordered 2 - you should get a commission!!!

Nicki,

The AP and Bauer are one and the same.  If you look at the AP Product website they list the keyless entry lock as the Bauer.

According to the Bauer website they have three different keyless locks.  There is the Bauer NE, Bauer EM, and Bauer EM Alsentis.  The Bauer NE is for travel trailers and is different from the other two in that it does not have the two pin safety latch to meet the FMVSS206 safety requirements for motor vehicles.  The Bauer EM and Bauer EM Alsentis both have the two pin safety latch.  The Alsentis model is the latest technology for touch pads.  It requires less power, uses less battery and can distinguish between human touch from liquid.  I believe they do not even make the EM model without the Alsentis technology.  There might get be some older ones out there but I think there were touch pad problems thus they now make only the Alsentis which is basically a software upgrade.

Now that I have installed one, the installation was not hard.  Because I had not done this before I really took my time.  The hardest part was making sure the striker plate was in the right spot.  I had to file a very small portion of the plunger hole to get a good fit.  Bauer also sent me an extra gasket to insure no leaks.  I have full body paint and had to touch up one very small unpainted area that only I would have probably noticed.

I am working on switching the entry lock to a keyless entry and was in the research stages.  Not a lot to choose from and was leaning toward the Bauer because of the reviews.  My rheumatoid hands are past being able to do such work and my RV shop (a small local place) is more for the AP. Would like more detailed info from Barry and Denny and Barb on the installation process of each and your experience of how well the lock is working. It seems the Bauer gets overall better reviews.

If anyone else has installed a keyless entry, would love your input as well.

Nice test and report Ron.

Now can you run the same test at 70 and/or 80 PSI, which is what most of us run our tires. I am not worried about the gauges that don't go that high.

Maybe you can start a new tread so we don't steal this one.

Thanks.

Where do u buy the Accutire gages?

Carol, Ron, and Dave,
Thanks for the suggestions.
We are having the factory do some changes, mostly deletes, and some adds that they are comfortable doing.
When I said major modifications I'm talking about getting a 60" wide(queen size) bed basically where the current one is now,
adding more batteries, and external storage. Thats probably talk for another part of this forum.
Good to meet you,
Doug

We also bought a 2017 - 2351 4 X 4 and had many modifications done at he factory for minimal cost.  I second the suggestion that it would be cost effective and easier to have modifications done when built.
Everyone was great to work with but make sure you have any changes in writing and any parts you have to supply shipped to the factory in a timely manner. 

Enjoy the process,
Dave
