I had somebody contact me for a RainMaster key. I made a copy of mine but though it fit into the box it didn't turn. Are their multiple or newer keys for RainMasters? She was kind enough to send the key back with 5 dollars so I want to try and help her out. She is located in the Ventura, CA area.

Thanks

We need to know what model RM she has. Donna at the factory will help; prolly just send her one, n.c. 1.800.777.1477
Suprised her "contractor" is no help. :hammerhead:

Thanks Mike.. Not sure what the full story is but some local told her they had to get a certain amount and it was cost prohibitive.

But their are multiple keys? My ARCO key chain had only one for the RM but it's pretty old as well.

I know my DX clocks have a different key, but I bet it's one of the stock numbers she has. In the old days, the key # was printed on the lock.

I'd bet: most of us have a ton of those lying around.

Well this was the original note she sent me. Got me from my EBay pigtail site. Apparently her son lost it.

Hi,
I am in need of a key for a rainmaster box.
Do you have any? I have tried to order one but the irrigation company has to order a minimum number and would rather not.
Thank you,

NEVERMIND

Just got an E-mail telling me all is well.

We found one! An irrigation specialist in the area was able to find us one that works, We have already made a spare, just in case! Thanks for your help and kindness,
Phyllis

Boy, that site is sure paying off! You can use Phyllis as a reference.

Boy, that site is sure paying off! Send her a 751, or did you?

I made a copy of my ARCO key chain version. Didn't work but that key chain is 15 years old as well. It has about 25 keys of various brands. Matched the key in that RM I was hawking on EBay so I figured it fit all RainMasters.

Use the term WE, loosely.

When you install a RM DX-2 Evolution clock, you get a personalized key; after
five clocks, it's silver, after ten, gold; just like the forum.

Im not sure how new it is, but do you have any dealings with the new Oasis software? Central control at its best? Or so Im told.

Therein lies the quandry: how many different operating systems do you have in your market? Each one is about $ 4+ for software. Where the DX gets it, you can run a ton of clocks at multiple locations, who cares if they are on same or different p.o.c.s? RM will do it. I think "Oasis" is the low end of the high end. Last I heard, DX rules! Hey Kiril, I'm not a rep, but I'd take the job in Ajo if offered.

I understood Oasis was the Central Control for the DX. Icentral for the eagle.
