Newbie in a 2014 3800

Hi everybody! We just signed on a new 3800 and are waiting to take delivery. We have been lurking on this site for a few weeks to learn more about the Voltage toy haulers. This is a great site for information.

Learn as much as you can about your rig beforehand and make sure you know exactly what your 3800 is supposed to come equipped with. For example my 3600 was lacking key fobs for the remote front door lock and there were no keys to the back side door. We're still lacking those items. Oh, and we're convinced that the dealer is your best friend until you take delivery and then they seem not to know you.

There are a few 3800 owners here so you're not alone with any problems you may have.

Which lock is this that comes with a fob?

I have the keyless entry (number pad) but no fob.

I didn't get the fob for the keyless lock either. But, I did get two full bottles of propane, a so-so Interstate battery, gas in both tanks and two bottles of blue toilet juice.

RVLOCK.com is an outstanding place for parts. My keypad membrane started cracking so I called to see if they could fix me up with a new membrane. They did better than that, shipped me a new lock (with battery), for free.

Not sure why Voltage puts remote style locks on our doors without providing the remotes.

Probably the same reason they install remote receivers for slides, lights and awnings and don't provide the remote for same.
