Change Log


Current versions are compatible with the 2015-2019 Allegro Bus, Phaeton, Allegro RED, and Open Road, and the 2018 Zephyr and Wayfarer.

Version 3.1.6 – April 5, 2022

  • Fix bug in 3.1.5 that prevented Alexa authorization from working correctly.

Version 3.1.5 – December 28, 2021

  • Change default awning open/closing timings based on user feedback.

Version 3.1.3 – September 12, 2019

  • Customize awning timing for each year, model, and awning. Previously, all awnings were activated for 30 seconds. Now, for example, a 2018 Phaeton door awning is only activated for 15 seconds, to reduce wear on the motor while still fully opening or closing the awning.

Version 3.1.2 – June 19, 2019

  • Fix non-functioning generator controls for 2019 Allegro REDs.

Version 3.1.1 – June 13, 2019

  • Advanced feature for software developers: you can now view and monitor raw CoachProxy and Spyder communication messages. Use any MQTT client software (such as MQTT-Explorer) on your computer to view your CoachProxy’s internal messages.

Version 3.0.6 – February 27, 2019

  • Users who experience WiFi disconnects or WiFi performance issues can enable an alternate WiFi device driver which may work better with certain WiFi routers/hotspots. To enable this, use the new toggle switch on the “WiFi Settings” page, at the bottom of the “Join Your WiFi” section. Your CoachProxy will immediately reboot if you use this switch.
  • Complete re-write of the software used to monitor and decode messages from the Spyder system. This should have no user-visible impact, but if you do notice any problems, please open a ticket.

Version 3.0.5 – February 20, 2019

  • Presets can now remember and restore thermostat settings (for coaches with thermostat control). Note: this feature is still considered experimental. Due to the variety of thermostat control methods in different coaches, it is possible something may not work quite right in certain coaches.

Version 3.0.0 – November 11, 2018

Note: Version 3.0 requires a hardware update, and the software update requires re-installing CoachProxy’s memory card – it cannot be installed through the CoachProxy auto-update system. Please see our CoachProxy 3.0 blog post for more information.

  • Completely new WiFi networking software, to simplify configuration and reliability.
  • A redesigned “read only” memory card configuration, to reduce the chances of the memory card image becoming corrupted.

  • Initial (unofficial) support for 2018 Vanleigh Vilano.
  • Various minor bug fixes.

Version 2.3.2 – October 6, 2018

This version adds support for 2019 Tiffins. Since it is impossible to test CoachProxy in every model and floor plan, please Contact Us if you find any problems (typically a missing or extra light) with CoachProxy in your 2019 Tiffin.


  • Support for 2019 Tiffin coaches
  • Added control of door locks in 2019 Phaetons

Version 2.3.0 – September 5, 2018

This version includes major changes to the CoachProxy Voice Integration system. If you already have Voice Integration configured, you can continue using your existing voice commands. To enable the newly added voice commands, you will need to Update your Alexa Voice Integration Device List which is a complex process. Once you have done this, any future voice command updates can be added without having to forget all existing devices.


  • Changed Voice Integration system to use a unique/fixed ID for each device so that future additions to the list of voice controllable devices will not require forgetting/deleting all devices from the Alexa app before re-running discovery. Read more at Updating Alexa Voice Integration Device List.
  • Added a button to restart CoachProxy’s Voice Integration software to assist with initial Alexa discovery of devices. Restarting the voice software immediately before running discovery sometimes helps Alexa find CoachProxy.
  • Added all individual window shades to Alexa Voice Integration (e.g. “turn on passenger sofa night shade”) in addition to existing global shade groups (e.g. “turn on night shades”).
  • Added ability to control both day and night shades together with AlexaVoice Integration. For example, “turn on windshield shades” will bring down the day and night shade together, instead of requiring separate “turn on windshield day shade” and “turn on windshield night shade” voice commands.
  • Added electric Aqua-Hot control to Alexa Voice Integration.


  • Fixed bug that caused Spyder touchscreen thermostat controls to sometimes jump by two degrees instead of one.
  • Fixed rare bug that could cause CoachProxy to stop displaying recent updates from the Spyder network.
  • Removed several unused lights (e.g. “Accent”) from 2017 Allegro RED configurations.

Version 2.2.9 – August 16, 2018


  • Fixes and adjustments to unofficial 2017 VanLeigh Vilano 375 FL support.
  • Added Aqua-Hot engine pre-heat to 2016 Allegro Bus configurations.
  • Removed generator controls from 2017 Phaeton configuration after verifying they are not Spyder controllable.
  • Added 2015 Allegro Bus 45 OP configuration.

Version 2.2.8 – July 27, 2018


  • Added experimental/unofficial support for 2017 VanLeigh Vilano 375 FL.


  • Removed TV Accent and Hall lights from 2018 Phaeton 36GH, and added extra mid-bath lights.
  • Renamed 2016 Allegro Bus Bedroom Courtesy light to Bedroom Reading light to match Tiffin keypads.
  • Removed TV Accent Light from 2018 Allegro Open Road 36 LA.

Version 2.2.7 – July 6, 2018


  • Improved floor heat controls for 2017 and 2018 coaches which only have five floor heat settings (68 F, 77 F, 86 F, 95 F, and 104 F). CoachProxy will now let you select an intermediate temperature and will manage the heat level for you. For example, select 74 F and CoachProxy will adjust your floor heat between level 2 (77 F) and level 1 (68 F) periodically to maintain a floor temperature of 74 F.


  • Added rear bath controls (lights and vent/fan) to 2018 Allegro Bus 45 MP which was mistakenly configured as a single-bath floor plan.

Version 2.2.6 – June 25, 2018


  • New “Presets” feature lets you save the current state of lights in your coach to a named button, and later return all lights to the saved settings. This can be used, for example, to turn on, off, or dim a specific set of lights at bed time, when preparing to watch a movie, or entertain guests. In a future release, presets will also allow saving thermostat, floor heat, and vent/fan state.


  • Major re-write of software for lights, ceiling fan, and vents/fans. Please contact us if you experience any issues controlling these features in this version.

Version 2.2.5 – June 10, 2018


  • Add animated inverter/charger power flow information to “Status” page for 2018+ Phaeton, Bus, and Zephyr (see photo at right).
  • Allow awnings to be closed via Voice Integration but not opened, to prevent unintentional opening of awnings.
  • Add entry door shade control to Voice Integration for Allegro Bus and Zephyr. See next item below.
  • Allow user to rebuild the Alexa Voice Integration device list from the “System” page. This can be used on the rare occasion that new devices are added to CoachProxy (additional lights, shades, awnings, etc.). IMPORTANT: after rebuilding the device list, the user must “forget” (delete) all devices via the Alexa app or Alexa web site, and re-run the Alexa device discovery process. Otherwise, voice commands will control the wrong devices!


  • Major re-write of water pump and water heat software. Please contact us if you experience any issues controlling your pump, water heater, or Aqua-Hot in this version.

Version 2.2.4 – June 9, 2018

  • Support for 2018 Zephyr.
  • Changed “Factory Reset” process to require 9 presses of the panel lights button within 8 seconds, instead of 5 presses within 3 seconds, to reduce the chance of accidentally triggering the factory reset.


  • 2018 thermostat controls now correctly allow setting “fan only” mode independently of cooling or heating modes.
  • Power Bed Lift in 2017-2018 bus is now optional instead of always present.

    • Vent and fan controls are now only displayed on the “Climate” page, instead of mixed with the lights on the “Interior” page.
    • The “Scenes” page has been removed. “Master On/Off” has been moved to the “Interior” page, and “Demo” has been removed.

Version 2.05 – March 25, 2018
