one thing to note: a couple years ago i attempted to use an X10 system in my skoolie, and the x10 controller that plugged into the outlet was not compatible with my modified sin wave inverter. it got hot enough to melt the plastic case and the "magic smoke" escaped.

it's one of the few items i've found that does not work properly with a cheap inveter, along with the charger for my sony clie PDA.

Hmm, I use an X10 Anaconda for my rear view system and I never had any problems but I always unplugged it when I am not using it.

What I got was an x10 PC Remote - No controller needed (as far as I can tell).

Ya, I can use it with the controllers they have for lights and such, but I am using it solely for control of the computer with out using a keyboard, or being inside to turn the music up. (My computer will be my entertainment system btw). I think it will work out well.
