Revolutionizing accessibility in truck bed storage
Ah, the open road. Nothing quite matches the thrill of exploration, the vistas rolling by, the thrill of not knowing what lies beyond the next hill. And when you're taking on the outback, getting up close and personal with the raw, unfiltered spirit of the world, it's not just about the ride – it's about the conveniences that make the journey all the more delightful.
Enter the DS45 MSA POWER SLIDE™, the gear you didn't know you needed until now.
What is it? Well, picture this. You're parched and hungry after a day of eating dust, crisscrossing the continent's rough roads. You pull over, kick open the back of your ute, and reach for a cold one. But it's not tucked away in some musty old cooler, no. You've got a chest-style fridge/freezer in the back, stowed away securely, keeping your sustenance fresh, chilled, and ready for immediate consumption.
But there's the rub, you might think. Isn't it a pain, bending and struggling to hoist this cooling monolith up to an accessible height? Ah, but here's where the POWER SLIDE™ truly shines.
With the simple press of a button, that cumbersome fridge rises smoothly and effortlessly to greet you, no back-breaking labour required. All thanks to a pair of powerful twin 12-volt electric actuators that take all the strain. And should you find yourself cut off from power, worry not. There's an emergency handle to bring your sustenance to you.
You'd think such convenience would mean sacrificing space, but no. This marvel shares the same compact footprint as its predecessor, the original Drop Slide™. And what's more, it extends even further from your vehicle as it lowers, providing unprecedented access. This might seem like a small thing, but believe me, on the road, these small conveniences can be the difference between a decent trip and a fantastic one.
Moreover, it doesn't skimp on the speed. Your fridge can rise or descend in a mere 7 seconds. That's less time than it takes to decide which brew to pop open! And with such a minimal power draw, it's a feature you can use again and again, without worrying about your vehicle's battery life.
The POWER SLIDE™ isn't just robust and functional; it has style. A sleek powder-coated steel frame construction, stainless steel and blue anodised aluminium fittings give it an attractive look that won't spoil your vehicle's aesthetics.
And if you need a little reassurance, it comes with a lifetime guarantee on the slide and a 3-year warranty on the electronic actuators. You can rely on it for the long haul.
So, to my fellow thrill-seekers, to those of you who live for the open road, the uncharted territories, the DS45 MSA POWER SLIDE™ isn't just a piece of gear. It's a ticket to a journey that's not just about the destination, but the joy of the ride itself. An easier, more convenient, more joyful ride. You owe it to yourself to consider it.
