RV Maintenance

Basic RV Maintenance
Monday, November 4

This is a one-day overview that will provide participants with enough familiarity of RV systems to do basic preventative maintenance. The focus is on typical RV issues and problem RVers may encounter when camping.  It will cover topics that should have been covered when the RV was first purchased, and will address all types of RVs, including trailers, fifth wheels, and motorhomes. This session is for people who are fairly new to RVing, or those that need to learn how to do basic maintenance to their RV. Topics covered are: keeping an RV component log, exterior of the RV, fresh water systems, sanitation systems, propane properties and appliances, electrical components, solar power and general maintenance checklist.

Advanced RV Maintenance
Tuesday, November 5

This class goes beyond basic preventative maintenance to equip attendees with essential troubleshooting and diagnostic techniques and help the RV owner become a better consumer of RV repair service.  This includes logical approaches and techniques to use when troubleshooting, proper tools to use and best practices to resolve a problem safely. This session is for seasoned RV owners who have some experience doing basic maintenance on their own RV.  It is intended to help RVers determine when they can do the work themselves and when to call for a technician.  If you have a particular area you would like to cover, or a specific question you’d like answered, please email Barbara at Barbara_Jording@bellsouth.net. You should attend a basic maintenance class (ours or someone else’s) prior to signing up for the advanced class.
