ASA Electronics participated in the recent restoration of a classic 1978 Terry travel trailer by donating a 24-inch Jensen 12-volt TV, a JENSEN 12-volt wall-mount stereo and a pair of Jensen 5-inch dual cone speakers.
According to a press release, the massive undertaking was aimed at revamping every section of the trailer ranging from a new brake configuration to an updated audio system. The installation of the Jensen TV provided the perfect solution for dry camping in a travel trailer as the TV runs on 12-volt power. The AM/FM, CD stereo also offers Bluetooth streaming audio along with front USB and auxiliary inputs. In addition, the wall-mount stereo features a new cosmetic design.
“We are pleased that we were able to participate in this renovation,” said Rick Carver, RV aftermarket sales manager for Elkhart, Ind.-based ASA. “The completed Terry trailer will be at the RV/MH Hall of Fame and Museum during this week’s Open House.”
Every step of the process will be featured in six consecutive issues of RV Magazine between June of 2013 and May of 2014. A more expanded and comprehensive format is available at the magazine’s online web page at www.rvmagonline.com.
