It's what that owner isn't necessarily thinking about con- trolling that will likely provide the greatest benefit to both him and the OEM that made his rig, however. Future possibilities include recognizing that a design or component has a problem – or even being able to order the correct replacement part long before the RV gets pulled into the dealership or service center, according to John Manfreda, a system architect with LCI. And, it's all being made possible by a great leap forward in the area of connectivity. Growing Connectivity It's not that the idea of connectivity is new, but how it's being achieved that continues to grow and expand. For instance, the idea of a home computer being able to connect to the Internet once meant a land-line phone. In much the same way, remote control – whether at home or in an RV – typically meant operating from a wall-mounted touchscreen. Upgrades to LCI's OneControl Smart RV Technology are allowing RVers to operate more features than ever via remote control. On the horizon: Voice-activated command controls and RV self-diagnosing technology. By K. Schipper LCI's John Manfreda (left) and Brent Hamood say the latest upgrades to the company's OneControl Smart RV Technology are allowing RVers to remotely control more features on their units than ever before. And they say even more advancements are on the horizon, such as remote door locks, power management and remote diagnostics. Welcome to One Control RVs PHOTOS COURTESY OF LCI
