    How long do batteries last you? Mine has been eating them up, last one maybe a month.

    Something is wrong, my two remotes would last two or three years, depending on use. Call RM, 800.777.1477, ask for Aron in tech support.

    I smell a Rep. Did you have to take a new job to afford gas for the RV?

    :laugh::laugh: I have not gotten a hat or tee in years, but they sure took care of me should I ever had a problem/question. :clapping:

    I use the Li 9 volts ... expensive but good life span.

    Up north, good batteries for the RM are as hard to find as good employees. ;)

    One battery should last you the rest of your career Boss.

    What career? I'm strictly an AAA battery guy these days. Last I heard, as a non-rep, was RM wanted $300.00 to re-furbished the remote.

    I was thinking of sealing my RM in a food sealer bag for protection. Anyone see any problems with that?
