How linear actuators give recreational vehicles more time for fun
When you think of linear actuators, you usually think about the various ways they can make work and repetitive daily tasks easier, but did you know they can also be used for recreation, specifically in recreational vehicles. They help reduce all that extra time used on setting up your RV and make it not only a more enjoyable procedure, but a relaxing one too . When you are out on the road in a RV you want to be as comfortable and carefree as possible, and actuators play a huge part in making that happen.
RVs should be filled with an abundance of conveniences to let you enjoy the comforts of home while out on the road. Things like reclining chairs, automated television displays, and adjustable beds, all of these are made possible with the help of linear actuators. They even make it possible to enlarge the width or length of your RV with electric slide-outs that can be extended and retracted with the press of a button.
Another common use they have with automating your RV is granting you the ability to raise and lower tables as a way of saving space. They can also make access to your RV easier with remote powered steps or even wheelchair lifts for the physically disabled. One of the most common uses of linear actuators in automating your RV experience is automated awnings. With an automated awning you no longer have do all that climbing and stretching to set it up, all you have to do is press a button and you can adjust the height to however you see fit.
Linear actuators could also provide solutions to storage issues. For example you could have storage compartments in the floor of your RV that could be raised and made accessible with one of our track actuators. Even satellite dishes on the roof of RVs can be automated to make your life not only easier, but a little safer as well. With one of our actuators and a controller you would be able to adjust the satellite dish without resorting to climbing up the roof during potentially dangerous weather situations.
One of the actuators more practical uses in RVs is with toy hauls. Most of the older models of toy hauls are equipped with large springs that help open the back panel of the camper. Opening these panels on your own can be a tough task, but with the use of an actuator it’s as easy as the press of a button. Linear actuators can also be applied to RV leveling jacks, specifically our heavy duty industrial actuators. This way you can adjust the height of your vehicle quickly and efficiently without all that extra hassle.
Vacation time is a valuable commodity and should not be wasted on manual labor that could otherwise be done instantly. With the help of our linear actuators we can make vacations and camping on the road a much more convenient and enjoyable experience.
