52 • RV PRO • SEPTEMBER 2015 rv-pro.com Dometic/Atwood T he supplier will take advantage of the crowd coming to Elkhart to intro- duce new products at Open House. First, three new PowerChannel acces- sories for the Dometic 9100 PowerChannel Awning will be on display at the com- pany's 2320 Industrial Parkway location. A Bluetooth speaker, a fan and an LED spot- light are all designed to be used through the Power Channel Awning's roller tube. The patent-pending technology allows RVers to insert an accessory's power base into the PowerChannel, then twist and click for it to stay in place where it is posi- tioned. The PowerChannel draws 12 volts of power from the RV's central battery. "The PowerChannel eliminates cord clutter that can be unsightly and haz- ardous: No extension cords are necessary to get light, music and a cool breeze while enjoying out- door space," says Dave Schutz, VP of OEM sales and marketing. "Within minutes of arrival, RVers can be sitting out under their awning, relaxing with friends and family." Dometic also is introducing the Pow- erChannel Rail, a track that delivers the same 12-volt power for indoor use. In addition, Dometic will showcase its new Blizzard NXT rooftop climate control unit for RVs. Dometic says the Blizzard NXT has a more powerful motor and fan than previous models to provide 350 CFM of airflow and advanced engi- neering that maximizes air flow around the evaporator coils for better and more efficient cooling performance. Expanded polypropylene con- struction provides better insula- tion and also reduces weight and unwanted condensation. In this new internal design, the use of heavy sheet metal is minimized to improve perfor- mance and eliminate noise issues. The Blizzard NXT comes in white/black or black/black with A/C and heat pump models available in capacities of 13,500 and 15,000 BTUs. "The Blizzard NXT is the best A/C and heat pump in the industry, providing RVs with high-capacity cooling and heating for year-round comfort," Schutz says. "RVers will be delighted with the pow- erful air flow and head-turning design." Dometic will host several Open House SUPPLIERS Little Guy Worldwide Little Guy Worldwide made a splash in 2015 with its teardrop trailers and intro- duced its Cirrus camper in November at the Louisville Show. Though no new lines will be introduced in Elkhart, Little Guy will display upgrades and changes across its lines, including T@g, T@b, MyPod and Silver Shadow. Owner and CEO Joe Kicos says Little Guy hopes to use the Open House event to showcase the services the manufac- turer can offer to dealers and also to bring attention to its supplier-partner Alde, which supplies a water- heating system that also heats trailers and campers using radiant heat. Alde will be represented at the Little Guy display to show how its products work. The biggest addition for Little Guy's 2016 line Little Guy Worldwide is releasing a new 6-foot-wide floorplan for its T@g with a Stargazer window. The company's top-selling T@g will hold a king-size mattress and come in at around 1,000 pounds. PowerChannel Rail, a track that delivers the same 12-volt power for indoor use.
