Can Axis/Vegas finally say goodbye to TriMark lock? (New RVLock keyless entry)

One of the downsides of having the Axis is waiting for my TriMark lock to fail and leave me stranded without a modern keyless system available to replace it. But this apparently has just hit the market: the "Atlas Keyless Handle for Class A & C Motorhomes"

Gonna check out the measurements on my Axis 25.4 this weekend to see if it might fit, but have any other Axis/Vegas owners taken the plunge on this?

Got a link to go with that thread? I might be two months late but would love to know if anybody's got this on their Axis/Vegas before plunking down $300.

I am pretty sure he is talking this thread, start with #24

There are a number already on the topic, so your question may get answered faster.

I just searched on RVLock keyless entry and presto!! all kinds of stuff

I got excited when I saw this 2 months ago but still will not fit my 34J distance from door edge to lock is too close. Contacted RVlock for the umpteenth time and they are working on it.

We got lucky. Only one of us got out at a rest stop and couldn't get in. I was able to take the lock off the inside to open the door. We put the broken piece back in to help keep the door shut. Could've just used dead bolt at that point but didn't want to take a chance. So we just took the inside off for the next couple stops to get home.
As soon as I got home I researched and found out about this problem. not wanting to cut the door frame, I went with this:

Expensive for a piece of metal but I was glad it was a solution. Took minutes to install, I would love keyless option if there is ever one that dosn't need any modification.
