Reversing, the bane of every novice caravanner, has now just got easier.
Jayco has become the first recreational vehicle (RV) manufacturer in the country to fit the reversing sensor and has made it standard on its newly released 2006 top-of-the-range Sterling caravan and pop-top.
Using a sensor similar to those introduced by the automotive industry, Jayco has the senor strategically placed at the rear at bumper-bar height.
It is wireless operated as a remote sensor so there are no connecting wires between the tow vehicle and the caravan. The sensor’s reading device is attached to the tow vehicle’s dashboard and consists of a LED screen and sounding (beeping) device.
The sensor is powered by connecting it to the tow vehicle’s cigarette lighter connection.
The sensor is not the only standard electronic feature in the new Jayco Sterling that would otherwise be considered an optional extra in other brands.
There is a 28cm (15in) LCD screen and DVD/CD/MP3/AM/FM 12V stereo as well as a control panel which monitors water tank and battery levels and the water pump operates off 12 volts, superseding bench hand pumps in the Sterling’s predecessor, the Heritage range.
