Thanks Oleg. It really is my time machine. When I step inside it reminds me of a simpler time. Someday, maybe I can put all those ideas into a Mid-Century house...

Wait a minute, a switch! :thumbsup: Now I know what to do with that extra relay on the wireless key fob controller I just installed!
Thanks,

I got one of these:
Wireless Relay


Button A turns on all the porch-lights, button B now turns on the running lights. Just gotta figure out what C and D should do.

Myself, I would use one for my Diesel Heater and the other for my Cabin Backlighting

Hey Larry, thanks so much! I never set out to create an art piece... I just wanted to camp! But thank you kindly for noticing.

One of those should operate the ejector seat for when things go horribly awry with your camping buddy. :lol: :lol: :lol:

You could use one for a panic alarm? You could also use one to control the interior/reading lights. Good Luck!

The idea of remote control is compelling. Tempting even. I have remote on these items:

- Furnace (On/Off Temp Control)
- Mechless Stereo
- Cabin Backlighting
- Glass Artpiece/Nightlight
- Fan

Now... Guess how many of those I actually use the remote on?

Zero.

I noticed this past weekend Carrie used the remote on the fan a couple times as we were watching a movie while it rained. I guess I care less about the "convenience" than I do having to keep track of them. They are never where you want them when you need them. I don't care enough about them in the real world application to figure out a good system.

Truth is, I'm literally always only a few feet away from anything I want to turn On or Off. Am I really that lazy?

They were a better idea in my head than in real life...
