Remote start

Remote starter options for 2018 Four Winds. Search was not finding anything. Thank you.

Same as for any car that didn't come with this option. Most any stereo shop can install one for you, or a handy person can do it yourself:

Agreed, you just need a remote start system compatible with the make and model of your cab ie:Ford E450 etc. If I were going to do that though, and I plan to, I would get a remote start alarm system by DEI/Viper or Compustar etc. On my rig, I'm going to use a spare port on the alarm device and add an inside motion detector.

The first step is to determine what ignition cutoffs are in place in the coach. In my prior class c (non Thor) the vehicle could not be started if the slides were extended. The same was true for our Challenger. In my current coach (Accolade) if the ignition is switched on while the leveling jacks are extended the system goes nuts sounding a very loud alarm and flashing control panel lights. This leveling system, unlike the Challenger, operates with engine and ignition off and not on.

So, determine what ignition cutoffs are in place and how they may impact a remote start system.
