I am an IT guy and inherently love gadgets. I really liked the remote control feature of the Copper Canyon and Cougar units, but ended going with the lighter Rockwood. I was wondering how much interest there is out there for a solution provider to these remote control desires. I am seriously thinking about building a business that would provide a total solution for remote control functionality in your RV. Is there enough interest out there to warrant a business?

Good luck with your business venture if you decide to do so. We have about 1000 active members. Not much to build a business on. You might have better luck on eBay. If you do decide to make something to sell, remember the forum rules regarding commercial posts.

Putting a link to your service into a post to help a member with questions about THAT topic, would be OK. Spamming members to drum up business would be a violation of the rules.

I have the remote and I bought 2 (RL44) 12v relays(4pin) with 85,86,87 & 30 terminals from Auto Zone.
If RJHuser can just tell me what color wire to hook to what pin, I think I can blunder thru the project.

Dunnnc:

The RL44 relay is just a SPST (Single Pole Single Throw) relay meaning it can switch only one input on or off.

What is needed is a DPST (Double Pole Single Throw) or the more common DPDT (Double Pole Double Throw) that can switch two inputs at the same time.

Sorry, the RL44 wont work.

How many channels does the---------

How many channels does the remote have? Wow, that would be something else for example at the rally in Goshen, one guy raises or lowers
50 awnings at one time

-Remote bandwidth frequency: 315MHZ.
-Each set is coded independently so there will be no interference with another near-by set.


From the spec sheet.
