54 • RV PRO • August 2020 rv-pro.com RV ing in Australia (or cara- vanning, as it's known there), tends to be a more rough and challenging experience than it is in the United States. That's because Australian campers tend to travel off the beaten path, requiring their caravans – and the equipment in those units – to stand up to demanding conditions, particularly when venturing into the some- times unforgiving Australian Outback. Now, Australia-based supplier REDARC is looking to leverage its expertise in man- ufacturing built-tough vehicle monitoring and control systems with the North Amer- ican launch of its RedVision Total Vehicle Management System. (RedVision is already used by more than a dozen Australian RV manufacturers.) Targeting a wide range of recreational enthusiasts in the U.S. and Canada, com- pany officials say RedVision automates, consolidates and communicates critical motorhome, camper and four-wheel-drive vehicles information through a convenient in-vehicle display or app, giving users a wide range of information and control at their fingertips. Company officials also tout the product's user-friendly interface and an intuitive layout that can be customized. Featuring Bluetooth connectivity and a smartphone app, RedVision provides users with the ability to remotely turn on or off multiple devices in their RV, such as lights, radios, TVs, inverters, water-pumps, air compressors, electric steps and fridges. It also allows them to monitor six water levels and two temperature settings, as well as overall energy consumption (battery power) and storage. Additionally, RedVision can be pro- grammed to shut off all switches and devices once the vehicle ignition is turned on, trigger a user notification for a blown fuse, and even analyze the power perfor- mance of solar panels, as well as the avail- ability of battery power down to the day or hour, according to the company. Offering Integration with Battery Management System When RedVision is paired with REDARC's Manager30 Battery Man- agement System (which has already been available in the North American market for some time), users have access to sec- ondary battery power consumption and REDARC rolls out North American distribution for its RedVision Total Vehicle Management System for RVs.
