    Mendota DVX 42 remote

    Recently had a Mendota dvx 42 installed in our new house. Trying to find a remote for it as it did not come with one. Struggling to find what I need on line. Any help. Our dealer would have to order one to the tune of 300, was wondering if there is something cheaper online. thanks
