So, it seems they've published the brochure and specs for the 2021 model of the Interstate 19. Looks interesting, especially given that we're now looking for a Class B, preferably an Interstate 19. If they still had a 22, that would also be on our "potentials" list, but no such luck.
First question for current owners: If we park our Interstate at a trail head and have to leave our pup inside while we go on a hike where pets are not allowed, we want to be sure he stays comfortable. So, does the Interstate have a generator auto-start feature? For example, let's say I set the air conditioner thermostat to 75F and it gets warm enough in the vehicle for the AC to try and turn on. Does the generator start automatically so the AC can kick on, and then shut the generator off again when the AC is done, over and over again?
Second topic for current owners or anyone else who knows: I just found an RV One order sheet for a 2021 Interstate 19. I provide a link to it below, because it shows a new feature that's not listed in the 2021 brochure. It's called a "Lithium Tech Pack," and they tell me this is is installed by the dealer, rather than the factory. Does anyone have any the details for what's actually in that "tech pack?" Clearly, it has a couple of 100AH Battleborn batteries, but the description doesn't talk about upgraded inverters, induction cooktops, or anything else. I have also seen a reference to this "Lithium Tech Pack" on a 2021 Interstate from Seattle Airstream, so it's not specific to RV One.
