We discuss at length our participation in the RV Tech Course at Eustis, FL.  http://rvtechcourse.com/  We spent an intense 5 days learning all about starting your own small business in the morning and all about the systems in an RV the rest of the mornings and all afternoons. We covered Electrical, propane, water, and RV exterior systems as well as RV appliances. We also did many hands-on exercises on students’ RV’s.

We spend a lot of time on the why and how of RV inspections and the benefit he inspection brings to both buyer and seller.
We discuss the role of the National RV Inspection Association(NRVIA) http://nrvia.org/ plays in setting ethics and standards for this fast growing industry. We talk about the RV Inspection Connection (RVIC) http://www.rvinspectionconnection.com/ as a company that hires inspector contractors to do RV inspections.
