Robert and Del’Rhea Brent

Lippert Components Inc. (LCI) recently installed OneControl® smart home technology in an army veteran’s travel trailer. According to a press release, RVers Robert and Del’Rhea Brent worked with LCI’s customer service team to equip the family’s travel trailer with OneControl’s automated systems for leveling, lighting, slide-outs, awnings and HVAC systems.

Robert joined the U.S. Army in 2009 where he was training for a future career in law enforcement, when he became injured during a combat training exercise. The injury left him with mobility issues that endure to this day. Robert is now happily married to his wife Del’Rhea and the couple has two children and two dogs. The family will now be living, traveling, and working from their OneControl-equipped travel trailer RV.

“For me, OneControl is useful because I’m a tech guy. I always have gadgets in my house, voice-control, lights, all of that. The OneControl system was really the only one I could find on the market for RVs and it does more than I was even looking to do., said Robert Brent. “Being disabled and not being able to get in and out, the auto hitch height memory feature of the leveling system is definitely going to be beneficial. Just push a button and its ready to go.”

The Brent’s were not strangers to smart home technology before having OneControl installed in their unit. At their Maryland home, the family had wired the house with Amazon’s voice-controlled Alexa, adding the convenience of phone and voice-control operations. After purchasing their travel trailer, they knew they wanted technology to help control their unit.

“The whole purpose of having a camper and being able to travel and take the kids is to enjoy life and enjoy what we have to offer in our country. Not having any added stress is just going to make it better,” commented Del’Rhea Brent.
