“Quality, commitment and forward-thinking technology are what we strive for at Pacific Coachworks,” Pacific Coachworks Purchasing Manager Summer Gerdes says. “We recognize that our customers want that technology and want to stay connected, so we are very excited to partner with ASA Electronics to bring their industry-proven iN∙Command Control System to our flagship fifth wheels.”

ASA Electronics says Pacific Coachworks owners can take complete command of their trailer, with the ability to do everything from position motorized slide-outs to monitor water tank levels, and even turn on their A/C from their smart device with the iN∙Command app for Apple and Android devices.

“It’s great to see more and more of the RV industry embrace this evolution of technology,” says Jeff Gray, national OEM sales account manager, RV & Trailering, for ASA Electronics. “We’re very excited to add Pacific Coachworks to our growing list of iN∙Command customers as we continue to push the boundaries of Smart RV connectivity.”

Through ASA Electronics’ partnership with Chevrolet and GMC, Pacific Coachworks owners with 2020 Silverado or Sierra heavy duty trucks will be able to control an array of iN∙Command functions through the MyChevrolet and MyGMC apps. They will also be able to access these RV controls through the in-dash infotainment system of their truck using phone projection.
