156579503641147.jpgIntroduced to dealers at its Homecoming event in Las Vegas last week, Jayco today announces its JAYCOMMAND™ controller that operates up to 10 difference RV functions from a single app.

Jayco, of Middlebury, Ind., says the controller was custom-built by its product development and engineering teams working with various supplier partners. The object, it says, was to allow RV owners “to monitor and control key RV operations from a smart phone or a tablet.”

“With JAYCOMMAND in our 2020 product line up, we are adding value to the owner experience.” Jayco Vice President of Sales and Product Development Ken Walters says.

The system was custom-built by Jayco’s product development and engineering teams, along with various supplier partners, so that owners can monitor and control key RV operations from a smart phone or a tablet.

Jayco’s mobile app is available from the App Store and Google Play. Once set up, the app controls a variety of on-board functions depending on the model, including:

• Multiple light zones
• HVAC
• Slideouts
• Water pump
• Awnings
• Water heater
• Tank monitoring
• Tire pressure monitoring
• Leveling

The JAYCOMMAND feature is standard on a variety of 2020 Jayco models and optional on several others.
