Default M450 Bay door Locking Problems

I have been having issues with keeping the bay door locking mechanism working. Have any of you had these issues and solved them?

I have heard from some experts that the Black Widow security system can extend the lock signal for more than 2 seconds causing the lock mechanisms to burn out. Relays get fried often, too. Any thoughts?

Tom, can you describe what issues you are specifically having? I don't know if the 380 and 450 locks are the same, but the only issues I've had have been strictly mechanical.

Tom,

Mine will lock with the black widow but I have to use the dash switch to unlock. Have not really looked into this.

Don, the BW security system used to lock the bays. It does not do that any more. It does apparently stay too long in the lock mode and burns out either relay or motors at the locks. A body shop twice let the batteries run down so far that they had to jumpstart the coach. After research and consulting Johnney Anderson, I suspect the programming of the BW changed. There is only one setting for lock/unlock pulse that will work with our system and that is 1 second to lock and 1 second to unlock. The other 3 will cause the motor burn out. We are going to reprogram the BW to make sure this is the current setting.

The replacement motors are on order but are 60 days out before delivery.
