ALLENTOWN, N.J. — The old saw is: happy wife, happy life. The EasyStart 364 makes for a comfortable RV for the whole family, the company reported today.
Traveling in an RV with no air conditioning can be stressful, and the EasyStart 364 makes for a comfy, non-humid and cool home for people on the move, the release explained.
For that reason, the EasyStart has been nominated for the RISE Aftermarket Product Award for 2019. RISE (Recognizing Innovation & Supplier Excellence Award) is designed to honor the best and most innovative new products marketed by RV industry component suppliers, the company noted.
Winners will be selected following review by a select industry panel based on innovation, functionality, customer acceptance, competitive impact, performance measures and other criteria. Winners will be announced during the 2019 RV Industry Awards ceremony at RVX: The RV Experience March 14 in Salt Lake City.
Installed on an RV air conditioning unit to reduce the power in-rush at start, the 364 saves on sizing of an RVer’s generator and therefore the cost (and quantity) of fossil fuels needed to operate it, the company explained, as well as the cost to buy a smaller generator.
Designed to be used on solar-powered RVs, it even permits users to operate two 13,500-Btu air conditioners on 30-amp power. More than just a starter, it also gently ramps the AC motor from temperature set point dormancy to running full bore. Comparatively, the AC unit without the product simply slams on, the company explained, suggesting the 364 should extend a compressor’s life.
The company also rolled out a “Double Down” extended warranty this week.
At Booth 1218 at the RVX Show March 12-14, Micro-Air representatives will be on hand to offer sales and technical information to show attendees at a special show price.
“With more than 238 exhibitors and untold attendees, RVX provides a great opportunity to get our one of a kind soft starter in front of OEMs, contractors, engineers, manufacturers, facility operators and other industry personnel looking to discover the latest RV air conditioning products,” said Andy Spaziani, president of Micro-Air. “Even greater advancements are in the works to be released next year.”
