The newly established RV Technical Institute (RVTI) will be hosting the 2020 Spring RV Safety & Education Foundation’s (RVSEF) Technical Education and Safety Conference for RV Consumers.

RV News & Insights reported that RVSEF and the RV Technical Institute share a mission to help improve the RV consumer experience so that RVing is enjoyable and safe. The conference has long served as a unique educational conference designed for all levels of RVers ranging from those new to the lifestyle to experienced. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn from industry experts on topics ranging from RV systems, campground setup, driver training, vehicle safety, and RV lifestyle.

The change in location from Elizabethtown, Ky., is being made to capitalize on the array of expertise in Elkhart, the heart of the RV industry. One of the key factors in improving the repair event cycle time (RECT) is properly training consumers on usage, maintenance and setting expectations.

Those new to the RV lifestyle can learn the basics and seasoned travelers can increase their understanding by learning solid, technical information from industry experts. Industry instructors and trainers have provided their knowledge to work directly with consumers who desire to get the most out of their RVing experience.

Fostering a good relationship between the industry and the consumer is an important goal of RVSEF and thr conference provides a way for consumers to learn how to properly operate their RV and to get a glimpse of the skilled people who build and support the vehicles the public uses for recreational enjoyment.

“An important factor in the reduction of repair event cycle time (RECT) is consumer education,” said Curt Hemmeler, executive director of the RV Technical Institute. “The overlapping missions of both organizations are to improve the consumer experience, makes this partnership a key component in fulfilling the mission. We are excited to host and participate in the 2020 RVSEF Spring conference and look forward to bringing more consumer education opportunities to Elkhart.”
