Very handy having the remote panel inside the coach, especially in that circumstance. The remote display having the bypass switch is another good reason to have it mounted inside the coach.

I try to keep them organized and fairly clean but not always clean enough to use for an eating surface.

Yes, that is another great reason for having the Display panel inside. I had never thought of that as I haven't had the need to bypass the EMS.

Yup, you're correct. I have used data cables that were over 50 feet long with no problems.

The only issue with a longer cord is that it has to be a DATA cord, not a PHONE cord. A phone cord actually has one plug on opposite of the other. On a data cord, the 4 conductors run straight through. A phone cord won't work on a Progressive EMS remote.
