Next Level Sponsored Events in October

Next Level Car Truck Audio Custom Charity Golf Sponsor

In the month of October, Next Level was honored to be a sponsor in this years seasonal Gravel Tour wakeboard competition and the Stars and Pars charity golf tournament supporting Give Kids the World Village.

We were a raffle sponsor for this years 2019 Stars & Pars charity golf and gala at the exquisite Waldorf Astoria Resort Orlando on October, 25th. Posted up in our custom audio tent on the 1st hole, it was fun to watch everyone hit their driver off the tee box, short and far. Thank you again John for inviting us this year!

Give Kids The World Village is an 84-acre, nonprofit “storybook” resort in Central Florida. There, children with critical illnesses and their families are treated to weeklong, cost-free vacations. This golf tournament started 7 years ago with a group of employees who raised $1500 for the charity. Over the years, Stars and Pars has raised a combined $1million in donations from across the country!!!!

It was a great event and we met a lot of caring people donating to the cause. At the end, we picked out of the raffle, a happy golfer who took home a Yeti 45 Hauler with Stars and Pars logo in SeaDek installed on top and a $150 gift card to our shop. Together, the raffle raised over 3x the Yeti’s retail value.

Please visit their website and Instagram account! This child below is only 10 years old and has already undergone 5 open heart surgeries. What an amazing spirit!!

Gravel Tour Final Stop

Saturday gave us another fun filled day out at the famous Orlando Watersports Complex for the final stop of the 2019 Gravel Tour presented by Performance Ski and Surf.

 

We appreciate everyone who came out and showed interest in Next Level at each event. To see our customers supporting charity events in Orlando, and the waterski community, it’s hard not to feel proud to support great causes with great leaders behind them.

Bocatech-Switches-Installed-Acrylic-Dash-Florida-Boats

Based in Deerfield Beach, Florida Bocatech delivers industry leading power management systems for a variety of vehicles such as RV’s, boats, trucking as well as aviation. Bocatech specializes in designing & manufacturing high quality products for over 30 years.

With a full line of Resettable switches, Non-resettable switches and Isolators, Bocatech has what you’re looking for when it comes to power management for your vehicle, land, air or sea. Below we will discuss some of Bocatech’s more popular products and what benefits they offer you as the consumer.

Bocatech’s Mini LED Navigation/ Anchor Push Button Switch is one of those featured products. It is built with 316 stainless steel components, is environmentally rugged and hosts a stylish bi-color function LED.
One switch provides two channel outputs for Nav & Anchor boat light. Because of its size the mini LED is efficient and only requires a 3/4inch hole for installation. Multiple functions are available with the press of a single button; lets go over all that it can do. First press turns on the Navigation & Anchor lights and the LED ring will turn Blue. Second press leaves Anchor light on and turns off Navigation light the LED ring will turn Red and the Third press turns all lights off.
See below pictures of a custom installation we did for a Sterling boat with an Acrylic Dash made in-house and Bocatech Switches installed.
Bocatech’s new Mini 15ADC, solid state Push Button Switch is another popular product for this Deerfield Beach based company . It is built to last with stainless steel components is environmentally rugged designed to handle the toughest conditions.
Bocatech’s self-contained, new Mini Switch delivers high power 15AD, most other switches in this size only deliver 3-5DC amps.Because of its size, the distribution can be populated more densely and still provide high current to branch circuitry. With the Mini 15ADC there is no need for external electronic control or wiring. Installation is very simple and only requires a ¾ inch hole for high current products. The Mini 15ADC won an Innovation Award at the 2015 IBEX show which highlights technology in the boarding industry.
Along with the switches offered Bocatech also has a line of isolators and automatic power selectors. The Bocatech Automatic Power Selectors provide simple, solid state solution for redundant DC power for vital electronic equipment while maintaining isolation of the DC power sources.
Bocatech offers these in 2 variations:
-The ones containing the number 1 in the model number have Schottsky diodes and a 0.3V drop @ full load.
-The ones with a model number not containing the number 1, have 0.6V drops.
The independent batteries are wired to higher torque-accepting terminals and internal diodes maintain total isolation between them. They are combined in a single output which is wired to the load. The unit is ruggedly constructed with heavy-duty wiring studs and epoxy potted components in an anodized aluminum case.
See below a custom acrylic dash that we installed a slew of Bocatech Switches to control most of the boat’s electronics. Wiring this boat was no laughing matter, but we at Next Level choose to make sure that the installation of electronics and wiring are the best you can find in Florida.
As you can see Deerfield Beach, Florida based Bocatech Switches offers consumers many different options all delivering their own benefits. Visit their site to see the other products they offer such as live wells and custom options and what sets them apart for other competition. Whether it’s a new or old RV, boat or truck they have a product that can help increase efficiency, show some style all while remaining affordable and easy to install.

Work Van Gets Extra Safety Lights

Having a work truck or van on the roads of Central Florida mean you need to be safe, not only driving, but also when on the side of the road too. This local work van asked us to install extra safety lights with an internal switch and different lighting flash patterns.

See the custom installation we did on this Ramlin work van.

FDOT may require your vehicle to obtain and have flashing yellow safety lights installed on your work car, truck or van. Please check with your insurance and state regulations about safety light requirements for commercial vehicles.

Below are the actively blinking safety lights in working order with different flashing patterns controlled by the switch (pictured right).

2019 Stars and Pars Charity Golf and Gala

We are excited and proud to announce our sponsorship of this years 2019 Stars & Pars charity golf and gala at the exquisite Waldorf Astoria Resort Orlando on October, 25th.

Give Kids The World Village is an 84-acre, nonprofit “storybook” resort in Central Florida. There, children with critical illnesses and their families are treated to weeklong, cost-free vacations.

A critical illness changes everything for a child. They simply lose their childhood as their daily routine becomes one filled with doctor visits, medical treatments and hospital stays. For one magical week at Give Kids The World Village, these precious children and their families experience the joy of a wish come true, everything from life’s simplest pleasures to the stuff dreams are made of.
