The vacuum was one of the best upgrades I have done for convenience.

Keyless entry mod

Since we have not spent one night alone in the two years we have owned this camper it was always a hassle to ensure everyone had a set of keys. I liked the keyless entry feature on the ford trucks so thought it would be nice for the camper. Guess we are fortunate the kids always want to go!
One code and no keys should be a nice change.
Very easy mod that took about 15 minutes or less.

highly recommended for the Thor Axis 2015

I've installed this keyless from Amazon on our 24.1 Axis. Perfect fit.

They recently came out with a model that works on the class A motorhomes. No modification needed. Easy peasy. Should fit your 29m perfectly. I think Christmas was about as soon as I found one that fit.
Again, very nice job on the central vac!

My link is proof of purchase, proof of fact.
This does NOT fit later model axis/vegas
Later models have different door assembly.
I purchased the unit linked EXACTLY due to a recommendation like the quoted one. The company is a very well ran place and gladly refunded my purchase price. I was quite impressed with their communication.

Look at yout door assembly shape. Look at the shape of the linked unit. If its not the exact shape IT WILL NOT FIT.

Thor may have installed some NOS assemblies on newer models. Check the SHAPE.

I guess I missed where you found this? Part # would be helpful. Or maybe the manufacturer? Thanks.

I THINK I just found it on rvlock.com
They've improved their site and now have will for/won't fit pictures of old manual locks and appear to have a unit which might fit.
I'll check it against the 24.1 later today.

Take a Look and let us know what you think about fitment.
https://www.rvlock.com/pages/fit-guide

I'm ready to buy if it fits.
I can then abandon my rfid door latch I'm working on.
It'll become a bin latch instead.

Thor used different doors. Dino and I both have 2017 models and our doors are different. So check specs before buying

I have had my Bauer combo loch for several years

RV lock's website has pictures of the various lock styles. If they have your style it will fit. If not, it isn't available yet. They have part numbers and prices listed by picture.

Jerry and I both have the 29M but I have a Windsport and Jerry has the Hurricane model and although these models are virtually the same, Thor Motor Coach will mix and match parts on certain models from time to time. If your Thor Class A, C or RUV has the attached door latch and lock, the locks on RVLOCK.COM will not work!!!! I hope this info helps!

Windy Cam

For those who didn't know, I am a Wyze product fanatic!!! I just installed a security cam in Windy, our 2017 Windsport 29M and I must say, I am impressed!!! This $20 camera is the bomb and with its "Starlight" aperture, low light pics are outstanding!! I also use this camera for home security too!!! What do you think?

I have 4 wyze cameras. I bring one for the mh when traveling. Only problem I've had is connecting to cg wifi. I've found many cg wifi netwoek got rid of passwords to connect. Just click on cg network to connect. Wyze will find the network but requires a password to connect

I could use my phone or Marias as a Hotspot but then one of us would be out of a phone when away from the mh

Hopefully wyze will update their program to fix this

Ive been using blink cams because they're battery powered and have temp sensors.
My yi cameras have start3d failing so I wont be using those anymore.
Fifty percent fail rate.

I have an early pair of wyze knockoff, or so early maybe wyze iis the knockoff. They'velasted for years, maybe 10 years but they dont like the new viewing software.
I'll buy some New wyze cams on you alls recommendation.
