Tat: You have to be more specific than that. There are Westy owners in FLA, maybe even close to you, who can let you use their remote for that. Are you familiar with the map of owners?

If you are traveling, look for Westy owners near your route, give them a call, they may even let you stay overnight. We have met many new friends this way.

Thanks! I am in South Florida. So If anyone spending winter here with OEM remote - I appreciate if you contact me.
I have contacted few West owners in Florida, but out of luck.
Also, I have asked Logitech customer support how to "teach" Harmony remote without OEM remote. They are willing to help, but they need Pronto Hex codes for our remote.
I asked Dometic for those codes. And guess what - it is proprietary information, apparently. Thousands of brands that Harmony supports not proprietary, and Dometic is.
They offered though to purchase remote for mere 125 euros.
Right....
I think my other option would be to find non Westy RV owner with HEKI 4 plus skylight and working OEM remote.

Alternatively you could send your Harmony remote to someone with its instructions so they could program it from the OEM remote. I would volunteer but will soon be headed to winter storage.

Thank you all for offers and help! I successfully revived the remote by replacing IR diod (from donor TV remote) and re-soldering PCV main board from back side. Also reincerted microchip to it's base. And magically - it's working. So I am on to purchasing Universal Remote while OEM one is in working condition.
Thank you all!

UPDATE - while our OEM remote still works , as a backup, we got Harmony 665 universal remote. Was able to program it through software on PC and "learning" procedure with OEM remote.
Not as smooth as original remote , but it works!
