LCI’s new products that will be displayed on OEM Open House show units include Sway Command Tow Control Technology, the ramp door Party Deck, the Flip Automatic Jack Foot, the Alumi-Tread hybrid aluminum step, the updated myRV universal control and monitor system and Waste Master. “We’ve spent the past year working closely with our customers, identifying their needs and developing innovative product solutions,” said Andy Murray, LCI Vice President of Sales. “We’re debuting several products on 2016 RV models during the RV Open House Week that we are especially excited about.”
- Sway Command™ Tow Control Technology promotes safety by applying travel trailer RV brakes before a sway event can get out of control. Sway Command uses advanced patent-pending microprocessor technology to electronically detect trailer sway and apply the trailer brakes to suppress sway and provide a smoother, more stable towing experience.
- The redesigned steel Party Deck quickly transforms a ramp door into an entertaining space. No need to bend down to latch or unlatch pins, the Party Deck simply folds out and snaps into place. It unlocks just as quickly with a patent-pending foot-lock system and folds up to stow out of the way, leaving plenty of room for ATVs and motorcycles in the garage. The Party Deck can also be removed easily with quick-release hinge pins. Optional accessories are available including patio steps, trash receptacles and table tops that attach to the railing system.
- The Flip™ Automatic Jack Foot attaches to a manual or power tongue jack and automatically flips down when the jack is extended, adding four to six inches and a sturdy jack platform. When the tongue jack is retracted, the patent-pending Flip Automatic Jack Foot automatically folds up and stores for safe travel.
- The Alumi-Tread Step® manual aluminum step features strong steel linkage and attractive aluminum treads with anti-slip rubber grooves for excellent traction. Lightweight aluminum step treads resist rust, ensuring durability.
- myRV® universal control and monitoring system allows users to remotely control many RV systems, including awnings, lights, leveling, slide-out rooms and bed lifts; and monitor inside temperature, tire pressure, battery levels and more, all from an easy-to-use, touch-screen tablet. myRV also provides access to basic how-to videos, product videos, owner’s manuals, additional RV lifestyle resources and the internet.
- Waste Master® provides a clean, quick and easy RV sewer management solution. The system connects to the RV holding tank outlet discharge pipe utilizing an industrial-grade cam lock and secures in an under-chassis storage compartment. The Waste Master hose is 5′6″ compressed and 20' extended with the helical coil on the outside, preventing waste from getting trapped inside. The nozzle features an easy-grip handle, integrated shut-off valve, 90 degree discharge port and clear view port.
