Hmmmm, there was some trick to it, I remember, but unfortunately we are not at the farm right now, so I can't be of any further help.

Did you RTFM (Read The Freaking Manual) [?]

I can't imagine why there should be any time limit on replacing the batteries because as far as I know, there is no re-programmable memory in the remote control -- it's not a learning remote -- so I don't know why they say that.

However, 10 minutes should be plenty, once you've figured out how to get the blasted thing open :(

My OH managed to get the back off ours - did say it was hard to do though....:D
Now it is held together with sticky tape because it won't stay on... :D [:I]

I did it, but broke two fingernails in the process! Very tricky.

Um... ours comes off really easily, without fingernails - just grip the black rubber at the end in your hand & lever up from the middle (problably makes no sense).

And 2 AA batteries?
