ASA Electronics has expanded its partnership with Calgary, Alberta-based Atlas Trailer Coach Products, according to a news release. Atlas is now stocking service inventory of ASA’s Jensen audio, video and Voyager observation products to better support the ASA “Hassle-Free Warranty” program.
Atlas currently maintains additional “for warranty” inventory on ASA’s line of Jensen and Voyager RV specific electronics that are used by nearly every RV manufacturer. Atlas is also the exclusive Canadian distributor of ASA’s Advent brand of RV air conditioners and heat pumps.
ASA said that its “Hassle-Free Warranty” program ensures availability of inventory and faster turnaround times on warranty work. If it is determined that the product is defective, ASA immediately authorizes Atlas to ship the replacement from a Canadian distribution center. ASA also pays the dealers direct for their labor and at their posted labor rates within two weeks.
“We are pleased to be expanding our relationship with Atlas and to be able to offer better service along with faster turnaround times for the Canadian RV aftermarket,” said Brent Barrow, president of ASA Electronics. “With the success we have already had, we are excited about the new opportunities this expansion will bring us and our Canadian partners.”

Advent units feature more copper tubing, increasing system efficiencies, along with silicone coating on the cooling fins that improves air flow and reduces freeze-ups. The heat pumps can eliminate the need for a furnace with propane gas and increase overall heating efficiency in the RV. Advent heat pumps also use the newest digital thermostat which features three fan speeds and a compact, sleek design.
The heat pumps are also built with heavy-duty metal construction and six mounting pads, which provides support and reduces vibration making for a quieter operation.
