ALLENTOWN, N.J. — Micro-Air announced today its EasyStart 364 product will be available for installation on Airstream trailers at the Airstream Factory Service Center in Jackson Center, Ohio.
Micro-Air President Andy Spaziani said, “Beginning with the consumers who adopted us, then the RV Industry with the RV Industry Association’s first ever RISE Award nomination, and now the service center of a leading manufacturer, I would say we have earned our stripes.”
The EasyStart 364 is the electronic soft starter that enables RV users to start any RV rooftop air conditioning on low power sources like 2,000-watt generators, inverters and solar systems. The device can even start two air conditioning units on 30-amp shore power.
It works by gently ramping up the start of an air conditioner, and protects the compressor from the wear and tear caused by the slamming on of traditional air conditioning, the release explained.
The power-reducing starter also works to control current in starting the heater in rooftop air conditioning units.
“This partnership is a real vote of confidence in not only the product, but also our family, the team of people at the company,” said Spaziani.
The EasyStart was and remains entirely conceptualized, designed, manufactured and tested in New Jersey.
The American-made EasyStart was one of only five products selected from among 70 nominees by a panel of judges as the 2019 Aftermarket Product of the Year at the RVIA’s RVX RISE Awards ceremony. It was the only air conditioning-related product chosen.
“We were proud to secure the industry’s recognition for ingenuity, innovation and for our high standards of supplier excellence in design, manufacturing, testing and customer support,” said Spaziani.
Drawn from Airstream founder Wally Byam’s creed, the idea behind including the EasyStart as an Airstream choice is that it permits an RVer “to travel with all of the comforts of home.”
Airstream Factory Service Center’s employees are making plans for the Alumapalooza Rally at the factory beginning May 28, and considering how to integrate EasyStart sales and installations at the week-long event.
