What's RV Basics?
RV Basics, part of the FMCA Academy, focuses on key preparation, operation and maintenance practices essential for trouble-free travel,
in a relaxed campground setting with other RVers. This two-and-a-half-day course is designed for new RV owners or veteran RVers who could use
a refresher on all the little things that make a big difference when traveling. Veteran industry experts will provide real-life solutions for
all kinds of RV troubles and how to avoid do-it-yourself snags with new ideas. Keep up with technology and equipment used in the latest models.
Find out what you need to know if you’ve upgraded to a newer motorhome or trailer. Technology and equipment change constantly, and we’ll share what
you need to know.
Learn the Dos and Don'ts of RVing (and laugh too)!
RV Basics focuses on key preparation, operation and maintenance practices essential for trouble-free travel, in a relaxed setting with other RVers.
You’ll take away advice you can trust on questions such as . . . what repairs you can do yourself and what problems you should leave to a service professional…how to avoid grey water tank problems . . . electrical system troubleshooting . . . when does it make sense to replace instead of repair?
There are no bad questions, but there are bad guesses when it comes to troubleshooting RV issues—hear what NOT to do first.
Expert instructors are available to answer all of your questions. You'll want to sign up now. Enrollment is limited to allow plenty of time for questions.
The workshop runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, and 8 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, so you still have plenty of time to make plans with friends and family each day.
And we promise – no tests, no tools needed!
