Lippert Components Inc. (LCI), in conjunction with Forest River Inc., announced that all 2018 XLR Thunderbolt toy hauler fifth-wheel floorplans will offer OneControl ConnectAnywhere cellular technology.
According to a press release, OneControl ConnectAnywhere is an enhanced version of the OneControl Wireless system (formerly myRV) that utilizes the local Wi-Fi network to allow XLR Thunderbolt owners the ability to access certain controls and functions of their coach virtually anywhere. Using the OneControl app on the smart device, XLR Thunderbolt owners can have complete control of many of their coach’s systems, including slideouts, awnings, one-touch automatic leveling, water pumps and heaters, HVAC, generator and dimmable lighting. XLR Thunderbolt owners will also be able to monitor water tank levels and control water tanking heating with the OneControl app.
Brent Stevens, general manager for XLR, noted, “Our customer base are avid users of our product, and with that we get a ton of feedback, asking for new features all the time. The ability to monitor and control their XLR from remote locations was a key factor in deciding to adopt the OneControl ConnectAnywhere technology.”
A notable improvement with this new technology is the ability to allow the user to be continuously connected to the Internet while using the app. OneControl ConnectAnywhere’s hardware is universal, so any cellular network can be used to operate the system.
