I bought two sets plus one additional controller without the remote so that I could do 3 lights. Each controller can pair to three remotes and each remote can pair to 3 controllers.

After I ordered them though, I found another site that had the kits for $5 cheaper each, but I didn't see the controller modules sold separately there.
Here is the cheaper place:

They are also sold on Amazon, but more expensive.

I installed this dimmer inside the wall (behind switch plate) for some of my led lights.

I have had good luck with this brand and like the 25% button

Thank you Ray!
I've been searching for something JUST like this for over a year now.
Not much out there for this application.
All I want is a wall switch. No remote. No colors. Just on and Off.
I guess I'll adjust to the dimmer function of it.
Will be buying two of these soon!

I also replaced the cheapo 3" ceiling speakers with some Pioneer 6 1/2" coaxial speakers that sound much better.

These are the remote light switches I used:

Where did you get the remote switches? I like that idea, the DW has trouble reaching up to turn the lights on or off

3-way x3 button remotes

Mekkeric, here is what I came up with. My bedroom light is a long reach for me, the main lights are on the floor as you come in, and the dinette light switch is very awkward to use. I found these three, 3 button remotes with individual relays. I will have a keypad in the kitchen, bedroom, and seating area to control those poorly designed locations without running wires.
Here is the site:

Separated the island lights top and bottom by adding a second switch in my Sanibel. Now we can use one as a night light.

2018 831clbss

After adding some shelves in the kitchen pantry of our 831CLBSS, I added some LED lighting on a switch that comes on when opened, and goes out when shut.

About how much did you spend? I just got a new rig that hasCastle Rocks. I may put on 500 miles per year on them. Should I replace or just give it a few years?

Been working on my mount for the WeBoost. Opted to go with a 1" thick cutting board, used a nylon antenna base, and put it all together. This will be held onto the roof with eterna-bond tape, really excited!

I spent about 600 for four. I had one going flat in one day so I just changed all four. This is our first one also,we put about 300 on them before we change them.

Nice work! That that should be strong enough. I wish my fiver was as well built!

I did the same thing and it's my DW's favorite mod!

Does your weBoost antenna require a grounding plane? (ie, metal plate) If so, how will you integrate that?

The model I purchased, Drive 4G-X RV, does not require a grounding plate. I don't have anything on the roof of mine that is usable for a mount point, no ladder, existing TV extendable antenna, etc. so this was the best solution I could come up with that didn't require drilling holes in the roof.
