rv-pro.com December 2018 • RV PRO • 35 the first company to introduce safety features such as LED indi- cator lights that can signify issues such as neutral loss, reverse polarity or loss of power. We were also the first company to add an ergonomically designed handle to our shore-power cords to promote a point of safe and reliable disconnect from power." Even today, Furrion is well-known for its power-related products, including inverters, cables and accessories, as well as its Net-Zero Solar products. Other product lines include its cam- eras to detect vehicle obstructions, and a range of audio-visual products including TVs, portable Bluetooth speakers, navigation and entertainment systems and audio products. Not only is the company's entry into the kitchen appliance market comparatively recent, but safety – rather than style – was been a big emphasis. "Providing safer travel has been a major point of emphasis for us in that market, as well," Healy says. "We have added things like latching handles to our refrigerators to prevent swinging doors during travel and thermo couplers to our ovens and cook- tops to prevent gas leaks." Because Furrion has markets worldwide, the company faces the additional task of providing products that Healey describes as meeting the idiosyncrasies of those markets – Canada, Europe and Australia – as well. "There are definitely nuances and unique requirements associated with each of our key markets," he says. "We invest a substantial amount of time and resources to understanding these idiosyncrasies. It's these market insights that allow us to develop products that resonate with consumers and exceed their expectations." Chase Healey, Furrion director of specialty vehicle sales, is pictured with just some of the company's newer RV Chef Collection kitchen appliances at the company's showroom in Elkhart, Ind. Furrion has significantly expanded its kitchen offerings since first entering the market segment in 2013.

Furrion says its ranges offer improved heat distribution for better cooking.
