Basic RV Maintenance Workshop


This one day class will help you have a better understanding of your RV and what you should do to keep it in tip-top shape. This class will provide you with practical knowledge of your RV, as well as what is needed to care for your investment. It will give you an overall view of your RV as well as the most common items needed. Topics will include normal maintenance requirements for the water system, electrical systems, propane systems and exterior and interior care. If time permits there will be an open period for Q&A.

This class is recommended for women who are new to the RVing experience or who would like a refresher course on basic care. This class will be addressing care of all types of RV’s including trailers, campers, 5th wheels and motor homes. If you have an RV this class is for you.

This is an all-day class from 9am-4pm with a one hour lunch break and short breaks throughout the day. Bring a pad, pencil, a desire to learn and questions. Hope to see you there.

Advanced RV Maintenance Workshop

This one day class is for the more experienced Rver who would like to take it to the next step in preventive maintenance. We will be not only discussing the items needed to be cared for, but we will be troubleshooting and diagnosing the most common problems. The goal of this class is to help RV owners take care of more than just looking at a problem . It will help the Rver know when to take care of or repair the problem and when to call the professional. Even when the professional is called, the Rver will have enough knowledge to protect herself from getting something done that shouldn’t be. It is definitely recommended that all participants already have a good basic knowledge of the RV, as well as some experience in using the RV with at least one prior basic maintenance class. This will be a hands on class as much as time will permit.

This is an all-day class lasting from 9am to 4pm with a one hour break for lunch and short breaks throughout. Bring your pad, pencil and a willingness to take your knowledge to the next level.

Cost: $55 per person. Includes handouts.

How to register: Check the appropriate box on your Convention 2016 registration form and include the $55 fee with your registration.
