MyRV Remote Monitor System

We are getting close to closing a deal on a 2017 2801QS. Looks like the MyRV is a standard feature now. Can anyone that has experience with the MyRV in the 2801 verify if you have manual switches as well. I'm not sure I want to rely on a tablet/phone to be my only means of controlling major components such as slides, levers, awning, etc. I can just see this going wrong in so many ways. Thanks for any input!

Can't answer your questions, but I'd be careful.

See this recent thread:

I'm thinking about seeing if the 2801 can be ordered with the old style switches. I know it seems like a step backwards but sometimes going forward is not a good thing. I'm just really concerned about the reliability of the system.

I think it's a nice feature....but personally I'd only be interested if it's in addition to the manual controls, not in place of them.

New technology requires ginny pigs, (people), to test the appliance. No cost to customers, under warranty, but the inconvenience, hardship, time, is a real pain. Don't need a glitch when you are hundreds of miles away. So, if you are ok with being in the "test group", go for it.in 2 or 3 years the bugs should be fixed, and the resale value will be there for you.

Hoping that Joshua Cavitt will see this and post some additional information.

If you want a 2801 with switches, I am about to put my 2016 2801QS up for sale. Going to the Tampa show with my eye on a 2017.

PM me if interested. Mine is well sorted out and ready to go at a big savings.

Doubt we would drive to Florida but do you mind telling me why you are selling?
