Just out of curiosity..........whose brand of fireplaces are you talking about in your situation?
At a recent RV show, the most popular brand of fireplace, regardless of the brand of motorhome, trailer or 5th wheel, wa Dimplex. Quite frankly, we've had a few of them in our homes over the years, and they are the most realistic looking of a lot fo the other out there. Not all of the modesl we had came with a remote, and the controls needed were often located on the front "hidden" panel.
