If you're upgrading or retrofitting an earlier installation you may be able to save money by ordering just the components you need. Start with this Base Kit and select, al a carte, just the wire and connectors you need. The Base Kit includes the same Coach-1 Power Center and laminated wiring diagram as our complete kit but does not include all the wire and connector kits that add significantly to the cost. Upgrading or retrofitting an older installation is recommended only for professional and experienced installers.


Coach Controls is very proud to introduce this state-of-the-art, high quality kit offering many features not previously available in the custom automotive market. Modern conveniences including automatic sensor-controlled headlights, single touch power window control, and lane change turn signals are just a few of the many features that make any ride more enjoyable to drive.


The Power Center utilizes both high quality relays as well as solid state electronics to control and distribute power to various vehicle loads. This means no more time-consuming mounting and wiring add-on relays. The heavy duty ignition and headlight switches required by other manufacturers are not necessary with this kit.
