Technicians during a training session conducted by Cequent and RVIA’s TnT program

Cequent Performance Products Inc. (CPP) announced it has partnered with the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association’s (RVIA) Technicians in Training (TnT) Program to provide classroom and hands-on installation of towing products, set-up, trouble shooting and maintenance skills to technicians in the industry.

Starting in early February, Cequent and RVIA have been providing eight-hour training sessions for RV service technicians, the company reported in a press release. These sessions have spanned nine different locations across the U.S. and are just getting started. Training that took place in Washington, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, New Mexico, Texas and Nevada covered a wide variety of installation tips, new technology in towing, and troubleshooting techniques.

The topics, specifically designed for this program, ranged from weight distribution hitches and sway controls to fifth-wheel hitch mounting systems, pin box maintenance and understanding brake controls. Cequent trainers also covered troubleshooting tow vehicle to trailer lighting and braking electrical problems with testing devices.

“The Technicians in Training program is an excellent way for Cequent Performance Products to not only provide training but to stay abreast of industry trends and to learn firsthand of the challenges RV technicians face on a day to day basis,” said Tom Romero, CPP director or sales and technical training.
