BOTHELL, Wash. — RV Comfort Systems is rolling out a new two-stage 30/50 add-on kit for its new all-electric furnace and hybrid systems.
This kit will allow customers to upgrade their systems so can operate on either 30 or 50 amps shore power. The kit will determine whether an RV is plugged into a 30- or 50-amp shore power and automatically switch to low heat when on 30-amp service, and medium or high heat when attached to 50-amp shore power service.
The all-electric furnace is self-contained and has its own blower and control system, where the hybrid system is an add-on assembly to any propane RV furnace. The hybrid allows the RVer to simply flip a switch to change back and forth between propane and electricity to heat the interior of the coach.
Both systems employ RV Comfort Systems’ UL-certified and RVIA-compliant heating coil powered by 120- or 240-volts AC to provide the heat. It can be configured into any one of three different wattage ratings: 1,800, 3,750 and 5,000 watts, depending on the shore power limitations.
With the company’s new two-stage option, they will automatically shift back and forth between wattage outputs based on shore power inputs (30 or 50 amps).
