"As an example of the power of our initiative, we built a hardware bridge to the leg- endary SeeLevel II tank management system, allowing any owner of these systems to summon tank status by simply asking. We will work with any systems provider in helping them develop skills for their systems, and can also assist in designing hardware bridges to the proprietary hardware," said WiFiRanger CEO Kelly Hogan.

Keystone RV announced that its new models will come equipped (standard) with that technology. • ASA Electronics offered an update to the iN-Command App, available for free on Android and iOS smart devices. The update allows RV owners to control more aspects of their RV than ever before by allowing the iN-Command App to communicate with other App-ready elements in the RV, including Jensen stereos, Equalizer leveling systems, and Carefree awnings. • Separately, ASA announced that its iN-Command systems will come standard on 2019 Minnie Winnie travel trailers and fifth wheels, allowing owners of those units to control select RV functions from nearly anywhere in the world thanks to Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and cellular technology. • Forest River's Work and Play toy haulers equipped with the Galaxy Package from Jaboni Power Products will come equipped with four solar panels providing up to 1,060 watts of power, a Magnum Hybrid Series inverter, a fully automatic power system from Precision Circuits and a high-powered Jaboni charge controller. • Lippert Components announced that Forest River Vengeance toy haulers will be prepped for LCI's OneControl Wireless technology, which broadcasts a local wireless network and allows the owner to control and monitor many functions on the RV.
