Lippert to Showcase New Products, Innovative Technology, and Service Opportunities at This Year’s Elkhart Open House
September 26, 2022
Elkhart, Ind. – Lippert Components, Inc. (Lippert™) announced several dealer opportunities today that will take place during the annual Elkhart Open House from Tuesday, September 27, through Thursday, September 29, at the Lippert Headquarters building located adjacent to the RV/MH Hall of Fame at 52567 Independence Ct, Elkhart, IN 46514.
Training Opportunities: The Lippert Technical Institute will have a display area showcasing what opportunities are offered by its state-of-the-art training facility located in Mishawaka. Dealers will be able to sign up for future training opportunities with on-site Lippert training staff. Training displays will include fifth wheel and travel trailer frames as well as multiple Lippert and Furrion® mock-ups that are used for everyday hands-on training. Visitors will be able to see what a week at the Technical Institute looks like as well as the opportunity to explore leveling, slide-outs, axles, and water heater mock-ups that were designed to replicate everyday issues that dealer technicians face in the field. If you are a dealer and are interested in hands-on learning during Open House, or if you are interested in a tour of the actual Technical Institute in Mishawaka, please contact Brandie Beam, Director of Education, at email@example.com.
OneControl® Showcase: Lippert will also showcase its OneControl capabilities on a fully outfitted fifth wheel. Visitors can experience the all-new “One-Touch Setup” feature, Antilock Brake (ABS) capabilities, new monitoring and control features, as well as other OneControl App functionalities like the integrated RV Health Monitor.
Electrified Towable RV Chassis: Lippert recently unveiled its Electrified Towable Chassis concept which will be showcased during this year’s Open House. The E-Chassis is constructed of aluminum and steel and features several lithium batteries that can power both the chassis and all the RV’s electrical systems. The regenerative brake system can supply power to the chassis battery systems in order to control “range anxiety” typically associated with EVs. The E-Chassis can also be controlled and maneuvered by a remote-control joystick, which immensely helps with parking the RV. The Lippert Innovation Team will be on site to give product demonstrations.
New Product Innovation: Many new chassis and towing innovation products that can be seen throughout the Open House will be shown on a showcase chassis. Products on display will include all-new weight distribution and hitching products, the Curt® Independent Suspension (IS) system, the Quick Drop® Stabilizer system, integrated parking brakes, and a reimagined chassis coating. Lippert sales representatives will be on site to answer any questions on these new products.
