ELKHART — ASA Electronics and Chevrolet have developed a new smart trailer integration which is designed to work with ASA Electronics’ iN∙Command Control Systems1, offering a new way for 2020 Silverado HD customers to bring RV control and monitoring to the driver’s seat.
“We see iN∙Command as a huge leap forward for the RV industry,” said Brent Barrow, president of ASA Electronics. “Our engineering team has worked tirelessly with the engineering team at Chevrolet on this innovative collaboration and it’s amazing to see this come to fruition.”
The new smart trailer system for 2020 Silverado HD customers is designed to integrate with and be accessed through the myChevrolet mobile app2, either on compatible Android and iOS smartphones, or on the vehicle’s infotainment system via Apple CarPlay3 or Android Auto4.
The iNˑCommand Control System5 allows owners to monitor and control a range of functions, including tank levels, HVAC controls, and motorized slide outs, in RVs equipped with iN∙Command with Global Connect.
“We set out to make every task easier for heavy duty owners, especially towing a trailer,” said Jaclyn McQuaid, chief engineer for the Silverado HD.
“For example, with iNˑCommand, Silverado owners can check the status of their compatible trailer’s water tanks, turn on the camper’s air conditioning, and turn on the water heater before arriving at the campground – all from the Silverado’s center screen,” she explained.
iN∙Command is the central hub of operations on a growing number of RVs, the release noted. Compatible iN∙Command Control Systems are currently available on select RVs from Dutchmen, Keystone, Lakota, RV Factory, Spectrum, and Winnebago.
Select iN∙Command Control Systems are also compatible with the GMC 2020 Sierra HD through the myGMC mobile app. The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD and the 2020 GMC Sierra HD go on sale late summer.
