Combination lock

Have a 2020 Windsport 35M

Would love to have a combination lock but none of the RV locks look like the right size.

Anyone research this?

Sadly the lock they use on most Thor's doesn't have a combination replacement at this time. It's been discussed a few times, and for the life of me I don't know why there isn't one yet.

Search my rear off for our 35m, no luck, think that lock they put on has a patent.

Loved my RV combo lock on our old vegas!

I reached out to www.rvlock.com and they said they don't have any plans on it.

I made a simple remote control lock. It can also use rf cards or a fingerprint scan.
It took about 10 minutes to hook it to the little red up/down lever.

A universal power door lock automotive replacement works perfectly.
How you open it is combination keypad or laser or anything in between.

But.
It took.me 12 minutes to figure it out and make it work.
It took me 1 minute to remove it because it interferes with the screen in a place where modding the screen would be hard or ugly.

If you will carve a 2x3 inch hole in the door or the screen, you can have a power lock.
Or
It doesn't take much of a plate to make the ones commercially available fit.
After doing the research and building both... I just didn't care as much as I thought.

It's doable by those who do.
You won't find a bolt-in one commercially available. Without modification.

If the op is truly interested and wants to start a group grope brainstorn/how to thread, I'll show the pieces you need to make it all work.

But
I'm going to try an rfid latch.
No hands, no frozen lock.
If I don't like the rfid I'll buy those combo locks.

You do realize that Thor plant 750 did not make your entrance door. The door assembly and surround are supplied by Pelland. You can buy an exact replacement door with the lock you desire from them. <https://www.pellandent.com/RV-Entry-Door-Replacement>

Not sure how this solves the issue.

What?
Buying a door with the correct lock hole?
Using rfid?
Building your own for $4?


What's not solved?

Oh I see, buy another door that has a type of door handle that had a combination lock option.

But then a new issue is the graphics/paint
