Linc pad system

We have a 2016 36RL we ordered with the linc pad. After doing a lot of research we thought it would be nice to have the tablet in hand to operate a lot of features on the Redwood. We took the Redwood out and tried playing with everything. The tablet did not have an option to remotely do anything. We contacted our dealer and they told us the tablet was just for how to videos, tutorials and owners manuals. That is not what our research had told us. If anyone has the linc pad can you tell us if the tablet can control lights,awnings, slides, monitor holding tanks, etc. THANKS!

Here is a link on a you tube that clearly indicates that it should control everything Discussion starts at minute 3:25!

if you go to youtube, don't know if this link works, but according to LCI, or FIT or whatever they are known as, it does everything!

We have the linc pad. We mainly wanted it to control the slides while standing outside. When we took possession, it would not operate the slides. First the tablet wasn't talking to the trailer because it wasn't connected to the router. Then we found out the trailer was wired but the system had not been programmed to control the slides. Camping World had Lippert Systems walk them through programming the system so it would control the slides.

Wie have the Linc system in ours. It handles everything on ours. A little weird using it. It used to work outside the trailer and after one update it only operates plugged in the USB charging cord.

I didn't like that idea 2 years ago when they debuted it at the rally factory tour. It looked very modern, but for us youngsters that are technically challenged & blind without glasses it didn't seem like a good idea!! In the dark I would've had to use a flashlight to find my glasses to turn the lights on to find the instructions to work the pad.

I know you have to keep current with technology to compete, but that gadget introduces "technogeek" engineering into an industry already plagued with trouble in my opinion.

The Lyncsys was introduced by LCI on a Redwood years before it even came out in production. We showed our Dealer the LCI video with it working on the Redwood, but the rep said the Engineers were still playing in the sandbox on that one and it would be a while - that was 2013.

Ours did not work when we got our RW. The tablet has to talk to the router. Like any wireless device, you search for the network and try to connect to it. You need the password off the router for the tablet to connect. Then the MyRV app will show up on the bottom of the list. Might need to take your router out to find the PW. It is on a label.

Forest River, Heartland, & maybe others have a fob that operates everything, I'd like that!
