Essex Keypad Keyless Entry System. This unit is designed to be top mounted, making it ideal for mounting on Coaches and RV's. This system can be used to operate factory power door locks on most vehicles. It can also be used with our MES power door lock kits. The keypad allows keyless entry to a vehicle by entering a 3 to 8 digit code. Unit can also open the trunk (if equipped with electric release) and can turn on the dome lights before entering vehicle. The buttons on this unit have blue backlighting. If you are replacing a unit that came installed on a Monaco RV, and it has a connector plug, it can be replaced by splicing in this unit or you can call us to special order one with the plug.
There is an option to add remote controlled keyless entry to the KE1701 Keypad Keyless Entry. We carry the RE-1704-KL550 remote controlled keyless entry which is the same unit that Essex sold for many years. If you are purchasing this setup to replace an existing setup, verify that your remote control looks the same as the one in the photo. For new installs, we recommend the Avital 2101 remote controlled keyless entry by Directed Electronics. Directed is the leader in automotive electronics. Both units come with 2 remote controls and will allow you to open your vehicle with either the keypad or by remote control for the ultimate in convenience. Security systems cannot be interfaced with this keypad.
Note: Many Monaco RV's that came stock with an Essex keypad have a 12 pin wiring connector that plugs into the vehicle wiring. The 12 pin connector option above is offered to simplify replacement on these RV's by eliminating the need to splice the wiring from the RV to the keypad. Verify that your RV has this connector before ordering this option. Note that this option does NOT come with the mating connector. The mating connector is NOT available.
