155855850378310.pngSylvan Lake RV, a dealership based in Sylvan Lake, Alberta, will be a distributor for Micro-Air’s EasyStart364 to the Canadian RV market.

“Sylvan Lake RV is proud to race the EasyStart364 into the Canadian market in a big way,” says Sylvan Lake RV owner Doug Thompson.

EasyStart is an electronic soft starter for RV rooftop and marine air conditioning, allowing starts of A/C units on low power sources like small generators and inverters, and on 30-amp power.

“We see what Micro-Air has done with the EasyStart in the U.S. and can’t imagine why we can’t do the same with Canadian marketing,” Thompson says.

Micro-Air owner Andy Spaziania says, “Dealerships are our lifeblood and, although we have a reputation for doing it well, they remove that layer of customer service from us. Distributorships boot that up to the next level as they address issue with the dealers, allowing us to focus on new product development and quality manufacturing. We are proud to announce this strategic distribution partnership."
