Born Frees are one of the safest ways to travel. Our three rollbar safety cell system makes Born Frees’ safety nearly legendary – especially since no other Class C manufacturer uses rollbars. We also proudly offer Liquid Springs adaptive suspension! In combination with our rollbars, this system makes Born Frees’ safety and handling unparalleled.
Our concern for your safety isn’t limited just to your driving experience. We’re always looking for ways to improve our products and processes. With the introduction of SmarPlug shorelines, we’ve found yet another way to make RVing safer and easier! We’re such big believers in this product that every new Born Free comes equipped standard with a SmartPlug shoreline!
SmartPlug shorelines were originally developed for the marine industry and have only recently been adapted for RVs. Because they are built to withstand the rigors of boating, they are completely weatherproof – both the stainless steel inlet cover and the plug itself incorporate triple seal gaskets!
The most noticeable advantage of SmartPlugs is the ease with which you connect and disconnect them from your Born Free. No more twisting on your shoreline to make contact and then screwing down a plastic connecting collar. Simply push the SmartPlug directly into your inlet and it is locked in place by stainless steel side levers. Then, for added stability, the stainless steel cover snaps down on top of the rear of the plug. These things are solid – you pull on them hard and they aren’t going anywhere!
This solid connection is part of the added safety of the SmartPlug. Traditional connectors can come loose if you don’t tighten them down fully and correctly or if kids in a campground trip over your cord. If that connection gets loose, the plug can actually arc and start a fire! SmartPlug’s multi-point locking system eliminates all stress and movement of the plug body.
The advantage that you can’t see is just as important as the improved stability and ease of use. SmartPlug’s design provides 20x more pin and clip surface area contact to maximize electrical transfer. What these larger contact surfaces mean for you is a drastically lower chance of arcing, and less heat than a traditional plug – both factors that make your RVing safer and more efficient.
