EasyStart Soft Starter for RVs

Imagine an engine that can run but not start your car for example. What good is that? LRA is the problem the EasyStart solves with generators, inverters and other power sources. Most small generators and inverters placed in RVs are large enough to run and air conditioner. But RVers complain about the big and heavy generators for the split second needed to start an A/C unit. With EasyStart, the user can both run and start on lesser power. And it does that at the time when you need it most, in high humidity and temperatures.

The EasyStart makes for gentle ramping of your air conditioner’s compressor engine when starting. If you are not convinced, Google our loyal following’s online comments. Works with every RV rooftop air conditioner.

How Can EasyStart Help on Your Next RV or Marine Trip?

  • Starts your A/C without having to buy a second or bigger generator
  • Runs 2 A/C on 30-Amp power
  • Silences the bumps in the night. Sleep with less noise and cool all through the night
  • Runs your A/C with more appliances at the same time without worry

The Ascent by Blue Ox is a Class III tow bar made from aircraft grade aluminum rated for 7,500 pounds. A light-weight, 31-pound tow bar that is self-aligning allowing for quick and easy hook-up. The legs are 2 inches longer, for maneuvering around tight corners and smoother towing. The Ascent’s off-set triple lugs and non-binding latches create ease with unhooking, even if the vehicle is parked on an un-level surface. There is no centering pin, so it is easy to stow and store. Not only is the Ascent highly functional and easy to use, but it comes with safety cables, rubber boots to prevent dirt and debris from getting in the legs, has a Diamond Vogel metallic powder coating, and raised premium gold toned Blue Ox nameplate.

The Avail by Blue Ox is a Class IV tow bar constructed of steel, with a product weight of 53 pounds, and rated to tow up to 10,000 pounds. This is a self-aligning tow bar made to work on wide or narrow towed vehicles. The revolutionary non-binding latch design allows the legs to extend and collapse for easy hookup as well as an easy release under any conditions. The off-set triple lugs make attaching the legs to the towed vehicle simple. The arms of the Avail tow bar are 2 inches longer, creating an improved turning radius for better cornering and smoother towing over uneven road conditions. With the ability to compress the legs, the tow bar can be easily stowed while still attached to the towing vehicle. The Avail comes with safety cables, rubber boots to protect the legs, and is coated in a premium metallic paint with a raised gold toned Blue Ox nameplate.

RV Gear: Rhino Extreme Sewer Hose Kits

The RhinoEXTREME 15’ and 20′ sewer hose kit features a bayonet style fitting that connects securely onto your sewer outlet and locking rings to ensure a secure fitting. The hose won’t crush if accidentally stepped on, and offers superior protection against pinholes and abrasion. The 4-in-1 adapter fits any sewer connection and secures to your hose, eliminating the need for weights to keep it in place. The translucent elbow allows you to see when your tank is empty. When you are finished emptying your tanks and have rinsed out your hose, secure the end caps into place to prevent unwanted dripping and store in your 4-inch square or larger bumper. If you ever need to replace your hose, the swivel fittings and locking rings are detachable and can be used again and again.

The locking rings and the fittings twist together to securely attach the fitting to the hose without using glue. To attach the locking rings and fittings, twist the black locking ring in the unlock direction down the hose 5 or 6 inches. Then, screw on the fitting in the ‘tighten’ direction until it stops. Once the fitting is set, twist the locking ring back up the hose in the lock direction until the teeth at the top of the ring are firmly engaged with the fitting. There are arrows on each part indicating which direction to turn it. ALWAYS make sure to test the fittings and locking rings for a tight fit before emptying your tanks.

Key Features
  • Resistant to abrasion and pinholes, won’t crush
  • End caps included to prevent dripping when not in use
  • Four-prong bayonet style fitting with gasket ensures a tight, secure connection
  • 4-in-1 adapter fits any standard sewer connection
  • Translucent elbow allows you to see when your tank is empty
  • Durable RhinoEXTREME TPE hose reinforced with steel wire
  • Detachable fittings can be reused on new hoses

This is available in either 15′ or 20′ lengths. To learn more or order please contact the Lichtsinn RV Parts Department by calling 1-800-343-6255 or emailing parts@lichtsinn.com
