Excellent idea on the RF Remote.

I have two on the RV now, one on each awning. I'd be rolling the dice that I didn't get the same Remote Code as one that I already have if I order a third.

Garbonz and RodeoGeorge,

How about letting me know more about the remote thingy and where can I get them.. Remotely raising the rear stabs and landing gear sounds pretty good. Thanks!

it's an Ebay thing, with a generic remote. Turbs or OldCoot, are familiar, but many are at Goshen right now. You n eed to access the wireing and put a remote box in the line and then the remote operated the unit. I have thought about it cause the rear stabs are a pain, but I havn't done it yet...

Here's a link to the item on eBay. As I mentioned, I have two of them installed (one on each power awning) and they work great. The relay contacts are rated for up to 40 Amps, so they will work with the Stabilizers just fine.

12V DC 2 Pole Reversible Momentary Relay Contact Remote Control Switch RM66 | eBay

I thought about Garbonz's suggestion regarding using one on the stabilizers, but I also have the Ultra Fab Eliminators on the RV, and have to release those before raising (or lowering) the jacks so I'm in the vicinity of the existing switch anyway.

I've about run out of toys to add to the RV, so ordered the Intellijack System, which shipped today. That will leave three final (LOL) projects. Install the Intellijack. Finish installation of my RF remote rear view system. And bypass the existing water filter and install a mount for an dual external filter system under the city water inlet.

just ordered one for the rear stabs. kneeling down by the switch for the several (it seems) minutes it takes to hold the switch is really irritating. with the remote I can be doing other things while the stab go up and down. It seems to me that a rear stab remote is more even useful than the awning, which I don't mind doing at all.

RodeoGeorge, thank you kindly for the info. The remote control installation seems pretty straight forward. I wonder if the IntelliJack's two motor installation can be rigged to control the single motor in the front landing gear and the rear stab at the same time. Have to run a long wire to the rear of the RV..

I thought of the same thing (using the two leg to control the Landing Gear and the Stabilizers), however in looking at the installation instructions for the Dual Motor Option, I see that they just parallel (tie together) the Sensors, and do not switch them between which motor is selected. Without doing a lot of "what if" modeling I don't think it would work.

However, if you were to add a DPDT switch to also switch the Sensors, I believe it could be used for retraction and extension.

I thought the motor can be operated independently according to the manual. Below is the excerpt from the manual.

Verify Installation
Once installed, the 2 switches allow you to operate each leg dependently. In the off
position, that leg is disabled. In the on position, that leg is enabled. Verify this by using
the LevelEase Move Up or Move Down buttons to test.

That is correct, however, if the "Retract" mode is selected to raise the Landing Gear or Stabilizers, whichever sensor sends the "retracted" signal to the controller will halt the retraction of the other jacks.

What is not clear in all the reading that I've done, is whether the "Down" button will continue to move the jacks after the retracted sensor signal is received.
