“This is our flagship Adrenaline Fifth Wheel and we wanted to do it up right from the beginning, so we chose an industry-proven Smart RV system for our trailers,” Coachmen Adrenaline General Manager Kevin Finn says. “We also have the distinction of being the first Coachmen brand to introduce iN∙Command to our customers, which just adds to our excitement.”

Adrenaline Fifth Wheel owners will be able to use Smart RV technology with control and monitoring functions for everything from motorized slides and awnings to Climate Control to battery voltage. These functions and more can be accessed inside the RV from a state-of-the-art touch screen display or from any Apple and Android smartphone using the iN∙Command app.

The new fifth wheels will also feature the all new iN∙Command NCSTS9 multi-function touch switch, located in the bedroom, for an additional layer of control.

“We’re very excited to have our products featured in Adrenaline’s new Fifth Wheel. To have multiple ASA Electronics brands featured so prominently is a testament to our quality engineered products,” RV OEM Account Manager for ASA Electronics Cedric Waters says.

Adrenaline Fifth Wheels will also use a full suite of entertainment products from ASA Electronics. The units will feature 40-inch Jensen TVs that have been engineered and tested to stand up to life on the road, a 160-watt Jensen JWM90A multi-sourcing stereo with app control, 200-watt Jensen JWPSW800 amplified subwoofers, and 300-watt Polk DB652 6.5-inch coaxial speakers.
