Onan EC-30W Auto Start

Does anyone know if the 2016 364TS has a generator auto start feature (generator will kick on automatically if temp inside coach gets too high)? I have been reading about the wireless Onan EC-30W. It appears the last post on this site was in 2013 and this unit doesn't appear to be for sale anywhere anymore. Is there a new generator auto start option or is this a commonly included feature on newer coaches?

Never heard of that feature. Just seems like something else to go wrong. Seldom have to use it, but I just push the start button on the dash!!

I purchased the EC30W last summer and have just now got around to installing it. I put it in last weekend but have not thoroughly tested it yet. We wanted one for backup in case we lose shore power as we always camp with our Boston Terriers and French Bulldog.
I could not find one anywhere in stock online but then remembered the Souteastern Onan repair center is within two miles of me. It did not come up in their system until I showed her the web page from the Onan site with the part number. She was able to find it at another location and have it shipped in.

Apparently they have stopped production and are working on a new wireless unit utilizing a smart phone. I missed an opportunity to pick one up new on eBay last light for $369. Apparently was acquired in a liquidation sale of an RV sales store. Should have pulled the trigger but with a unit no longer in production from a place that doesn't offer a warranty, maybe I'm better off letting pass for now....

I heard they were working on a new model also and that is what I really wanted. That was in 2013 when we purchased our MH. I finally gave up waiting when I found one, (and Onan did give me the warranty) This unit is definitely outdated and I would wait for the newer version if I were you
