TMC Using Lippert’s ‘Linc’ Remote Technology
Lippert Components Inc. (LCI) announced that Thor Motor Coach is now using Linc Remote System technology for its Rapid Camp wireless control system on several of its Class A and Class C motorhome brands.
According to a press release, Thor Motor Coach’s Rapid Camp, powered by the Linc Remote System technology, allows users to control the patio awning, slideout rooms, exterior patio light, leveling jacks and generator from within 50 feet of the motorhome, as well as monitor the progress of each function.
“We recently launched the Rapid Camp wireless system on several brands,” said Jon Krider, Thor Motor Coach director of marketing. “It definitely simplifies using the coach for our customers. LCI’s Linc Remote System technology provides customers with easy access to their most-used features and allows them to be outside of the coach while operating jacks and slide rooms.”
He added, “For instance, if a rain storm rolled in and they were visiting a neighboring coach, they could simply retract the awning using the Rapid Camp without getting wet.”
Rapid Camp is now available on the Hurricane, Windsport, Miramar, Challenger and Outlaw Class A’s, as well as the Outlaw and -550 “Super C” Class models.
“Thor Motor Coach is the first company to use the Linc in a motorhome application, and that’s exciting because motorhome users don’t have to be standing in the center part of their motorhome to operate multiple functions anymore,” LCI Body Division Product Manager Chris Ganshorn explained. “Instead, Linc allows them to remotely control key functions from as far away as 50 feet, providing them a more convenient set up they can safely monitor from outside the motorhome.”
