DIY RF remote control for slide-out

Hello all,

I have recently installed an RF remote control so that I can be outside making sure my slide-out is clearing everything when being extended.

Fairly cheap and easy mod to do. Real happy with the results.

I can provide more details if anyone is interested.

My RV mods: Remote control for slide out

Cheers,

JF

Nice, and very interested. I have zero abilities like this so I'm hoping I can learn a bit from you. I like that idea a lot though.

It's not that hard, you just need to have the right wires, connectors, etc.

With a little patience, you'll be fine. I have also added a diagram showing how the wires are connected to the remote switch receiver.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Where did you hide the remote switch at? I think I saw your controls were in a cabinet by the door. Unfortunately mine is mounted just inside the door on the wall. Not hiding anywhere.

Could you still open up the control panel and see if you have some room? These receivers are quite small so you only need a bit of room for the receiver and the wires...

I've used these remotes to replace a nearly unreachable ceiling mounted fan switch, its companion vent lid operating motor and a light switch that was cleverly hidden behind an open door. They have been working great over a period of about 7 months of full time use. The remotes are strategically located and attached to whatever with double stick carpet tape.

Friendly Bob

Bought a similar thing on E Bay, cheap, and worked great. But, can't remember the details. When we sold the unit, it really impress the buyer !!!

Mine switch is just on a wall plate and not a control panel so no room to speak of. Will have to do some investigating the next time I'm at the trailer.
