Jayco Inc. launched its exclusive JAYCOMMAND “smart” technology at its annual dealer homecoming meeting this past week in Las Vegas. According to a press release, the system turns any smart phone into a remote, allowing customers to control various features of their RV.

The JAYCOMMAND 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.

“We want to make camping in a Jayco as easy as possible and provide our customers with an excellent experience every time they take their RV on a trip. The addition of JAYCOMMAND to our 2020 products is just another way we’re adding value to the owner experience.” stated Ken Walters, vice president of sales and product development for Jayco.

JAYCOMMAND utilizes a mobile app that can be downloaded onto a smart cellular phone or tablet.

Systems controlled in your Jayco RV may include:

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

“Technology can improve an RV owner’s experience and we are always looking for ways to innovate at Jayco,” said Derald Bontrager, Jayco president and CEO. “Times have changed as technology becomes more commonplace, and we need to evolve. These are not the same RVs my father used to make, but we’re still building them for the same group of people: families.”

JAYCOMMAND will be standard on a wide variety of 2020 Jayco models and optional on several others. JAYCOMMAND is powered by OneControl by Lippert Components, BMPRO and Firefly, depending on the make and model.
