                     Due to overwhelming demand, the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) has added three new RV technician training sessions to the series of technical training seminars on Dec. 3-4 as part of the association’s National RV Trade Show.

According to a press release, available spaces are filling quickly for the remaining open sessions and those interested in attending are urged to register now by clicking here.  The revised schedule for the technical training seminars with the addition of the new sessions is:

Wednesday, Dec. 3

8-10 a.m., Room C101 — “The Attitude of Troubleshooting  presented by Gary Bunzer, the RV Doctor” (spaces available): Often times there is very little difference between an outstanding RV service shop and a mediocre shop, but that little difference can make a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it’s positive or contrary. The same holds true for the individual service technician, especially in the approach taken when troubleshooting a seemingly complex technical problem. This session is geared for RV Service Managers to take and then present it to their technicians in their own service facility.

10-11 a.m., Room C105  — “Atwood Mobile Products – New Product Overview” (spaces available): Atwood Mobile Products LLC will present an overview of the features and benefits of the new rapid heat furnaces, air command air conditioners, helium refrigerators, and on-demand water heaters in a session designed for parts and service managers.

11 a.m. to noon, Room C101 — “Lippert Components – New Product Overview”  (spaces available): Lippert Components will offer an overview of the features and benefits for service and parts managers of new aftermarket products including new advancements in waste management, towing products, steps, and sleep solutions for the motorized and towable RV markets.

RVIA is teaming with some of the industry’s leading supplier companies to host this comprehensive track of technical training seminars at no charge at the Louisville Show. In addition to offering the free training, the association is reimbursing dealers with a $200 stipend to help offset some of the costs of bringing RV technical and service personnel to the show. Seminar participants will receive certificates and continuing education credits for each session attended.

RVIA’s National RV Trade Show is taking place Dec. 2-4 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.
