From a $100 Ravelco DIY attempt on sports mobile forum.com
I just disassembled a cheap $100 ravelco that I bought online.
It appears it was manufactured incorrectly, and the cap did not match the receiver. (The codes also don't match on either)
I’ve been multi-forum searching all morning on DIY $100 Revelco.
And I DO see a number of people buying them.
In every case, it pretty much stops there. No post purchase positive reviews or installs (except as indicated above).
There are a number of DIY discussions on $100 Ravelco installs…. But they invariably evolve into back and forth product modifications, physical works arounds, and such.
Either install a cheap well hidden $25 kill switch, or go with a certified Ravelco install (around $500, give or take).

Not al systems used all the time, depends on circumstances.
Then again, my 2020 only has 1700 miles, and 400 of those was traveling to get Ravelco installed.
In extreme cases, I might pull a fuse and/or relay. The only time I did that was on a motel lot overnight awaiting Ravelco
