ELKHART, Indiana – ASA Electronics is debuting the next generation of its iN-Command Control Systems in the Dutchmen lines exclusively at the Open House in Elkhart, Indiana.
Meeting the specific requirements of each model, this new generation enables even more RVers to get a sophisticated, remote system into a mainstream travel trailer. The all-encompassing system allows users to control every function that would normally be controlled by interior switches using the installed touch screen monitor or via a smart device using Bluetooth.
"Dutchmen's history of being an innovative company that is focused on providing customers with the best product experience possible was what propelled our decision to partner with ASA," Dutchman RV President Troy James says. "We truly believe that this system will enhance the end user’s experience with our products through easier setup and operation of basic functions that, in the end, will give them more time to enjoy their time away with friends and family. The intuitive interaction that the iN-Command touch screen and app based system provides, along with the ease of systems service that the overall system provides, is yet another way Dutchmen continues to lead in the RV industry."
This versatile system has had huge success since its first implementation and the demand continues to increase across new brands.
“I am very optimistic about home innovation making its way into the RV environment through the extra level of technology and control that iN-Command provides," ASA RV OEM Account Manager Cedric Waters says. "As iN-Command is expanded into multiple brands, it continues to prove itself as the most adaptable, user-friendly system on the market.”
