Easy to Install AutoStart for Your RV Generator

Worry-Free Control of Your Power Systems

  • Starts and stops the generator as required to maintain battery health
  • Will only start the generator if shorepower is NOT present
  • Automatic generator turn on to meet air conditioning demands if coach gets too hot
  • Wireless - RV owners can install themselves

Introducing the newest RV power generation solution -- Energy Command™ AutoStart . The EC-30W is the first autostart system specifically designed for RV owners to install themselves. This provides worry-free control for most Cummins Onan diesel, gas, or LP generators. While high-end diesel RVs have added autostart as a factory option in recent years, most RVers who could use an autostart system on their existing RV don’t have one. Because the EC-30W is wireless, the average RV owner can install it on their own without paying for installation. At the same time, the EC-30W maintains several features that are unique to the Energy Command family. These unique features include:

  • Detection of Shorepower so the EC-30W will only start the generator if shorepower is NOT present and batteries get low or the RV gets too hot. This allows the RVer to use the EC-30W as a back-up to shorepower in campgrounds with weak or intermittent power.
  • An accelerometer to detect when the RV moves to prevent the EC-30W from accidentally starting the generator when the RV is placed inside an enclosed space.
  • Battery backup to maintain settings in the EC-30W when power is removed. (Don't have to constantly reset the clock.)

Cummins Onan Energy Command 30W (EC-30W)

Cummins Onan EC-30W puts RV power in the palm of your hand.

Cummins Onan Energy Command 30W consists of a receiver that is wired to the generator and a hand-held transmitter that is used to automatically start and stop the generator as required to maintain battery health and temperature inside the RV.
