Longwood, Fla. – RV Intelligence, a new manufacturer of aftermarket products and accessories for Recreational Vehicles, has launched its second Smart RV product with the release of The WoBLR, the World’s Best Level for RVs.
The WoBLR is an evolution in leveling recreational vehicles. The smart phone app shows a two-dimensional image to assist in the process of leveling an RV, and the level sensing module is compact and simple to install. The WoBLR is available for purchase at select RV accessory retailers.
“We are thrilled to make The WoBLR available to RVers who manually, or block level, their trailer,” RV Intelligence Co-Founder Herb Gingold says. “It really is the World’s Best Level for RVs and falls perfectly in line with our commitment to utilize the latest technology to provide RVers a level of convenience and features that haven’t previously existed.”
The WoBLR can be mounted anywhere in the RV, and adds the ability to view the level of an RV with an intuitive two-dimensional bubble display, on the user’s smart phone, using the free RVIQWoBLR app. The WoBLR, which allows users to customize the trailer image shown on the app, can also be calibrated to the user’s RV and the location it is mounted. Hitch Point mode allows for exact hitch height every time it’s connected, and the zoom function allows the user to increase or decrease the resolution. By inputting simple measurements of the trailer, the offset in inches at all jacks can be shown using RVIQArclength calculation. The WoBLR app, RVIQWoBLR, is available for iOS and Android enabled devices, and features a simple pairing and connecting process.
The WoBLR was born from real world camping experience.
"We camp a lot on the weekends, and often I head out early to set things up before the rest of the family arrives,” Gingold says. “If you have ever leveled a camper manually by yourself, once you try The WoBLR you will see how it simplifies the process and you’ll never want to go back to your old level measuring system again.
“We hope our customers find the WoBLR affordable and easy to use, and they can feel great about their purchase knowing all of our products are designed and manufactured in the U.S., and sold locally through our family of retailers.”
RV Intelligence products can be found at RV products and accessories retailers including:
• Camping Connection
• Eagles Pride RV Sales
• General RV
• Giant Recreation World/RV
