Can I assume correctly, in the link you provided for the wireless switch; ....the transmitter is replaceable battery powered & the receiver is RV 12v powered? ......Thanks again

The transmitter is piezo and doesn't need power. The receiver is powered by the light supply. Very good no-maintenance device.
