I think I got an idea of what to expect except as to how LONG can I run the wire for the remote,,
I am getting 20 ft of 22ga/6 stranded wire,
Any seen problems with power fall off,etc etc

I run a six wire (flat phone cord)50 ft with no problems. Only problems I've encountered are the mini buttons wear out fast. I switched them out twice in a year now, and will go with the more robust buttons next time.
