The popular “RV-C Network Fest at the National RV Trade Show, Dec. 1-3 in Louisville, Ky.,” hosted by the Technical Subcommittee on CAN, is expected to draw enthusiastic crowds again this year to demonstrations of RV-C, a unique RV multiplexing system designed and approved by the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) technical subcommittees, according to a news release.
Over the past two years, thousands of show attendees have attended the Network Fest, where they were introduced to over two dozen RV-C compliant devices (including awnings, generators, electronic controls, levelers and heaters, to name a few) from 14 vendors – all networked together on a common wiring harness. Attendees are able to observe the results of data signals being broadcast from a central panel to the various devices, controlling their functions and interoperability.
Fest attendees are also able to view the diagnostic capabilities of RV-C, which are similar to those seen in all modern automobiles. Soon, RV service technicians will be able to use a standard tool to download diagnostic information on every RV-C compliant component on the vehicle. This will reduce both time and expense involved in service and repair.
Besides providing diagnostic capabilities, the use of RV-C on vehicles will add tremendous flexibility, multi-point control, enhanced automation, increased safety, and simplification of wiring.
The RV-C Network Fest will take place during show hours in Room C 101 in the South Wing of the Kentucky Exposition Center. For more information about the National RV Trade Show, call RVIA’s Show Department at (703) 620-6003 ext. 365.
