Motorhome Starter RV Orientation® Video Training Program

RV owners have known and enjoyed a secret about RVs for a long time. Travel by RV is a smart and safe way to traverse the country. There are no airplanes to deal with, no staying in hotels, and no schedules to follow. We can take our own food with us, and decide when we want to eat out. We have our own bed, so there are no concerns about hotel rooms and hotel beds. If you are an animal lover, you can travel with your pets. There are no schedules or flights to catch, no lines to stand in, and no trains, planes or automobiles. Here's the thing though, if you don’t understand how to use the RV, your safe and fun RV trip could be ruined. That’s where RV Education 101 comes in. We educate RV owners on how to safely and properly drive, tow, use and maintain RVs. The training is online, so you can access it whenever you want, and you can learn at your own pace.

But there is a learning curve involved with using and RV:

Our RV 101® online video training programs can be viewed from computers, tablets, and smartphones. This training program includes full-feature video segments (with downloadable segments), related articles written by your instructor, short video segments, helpful tips & tricks, fun play & learn RV University crossword puzzles, and quizzes to help you retain the information.

Now you don't have to pay extravagant fees, or join any annoying clubs that inundate your email inbox, to learn how everything on your motorhome works.

Relax in the comfort of your own home or RV and we will walk you step-by-step through all of the systems of your motohome. Buying a motorhome is exciting and when you pick it up the only thing on your mind is getting it home and planning that first trip. Yes, the dealer gave you a walk-through of the unit, but there was so much information and excitement that it was overwhelming.

Now it’s parked in your driveway and you can’t remember what was covered during the walk-through. Don’t worry, we put all of the information into an easy to understand training program that you can watch and read as many times as you like, or need, until you are comfortable using your new motorhome.

What does RV orientation Video mean?

RV orientation video is a class I give, similar to an RV dealer’s class given to the consumer after an RV is sold. The term RV orientation video can be used interchangeably with the term RV walk-through video.

Your instructor, Mark Polk, is a 25-year veteran in the RV industry. He has worked in every facet of the RV industry and he doesn't just stand and talk to you, he is all about hand-on training so you really learn how things are done.

Mark J. Polk
Mark J. Polk

Mark is an RVer and has a very extensive background in the RV industry. He began at age 15, washing RVs at a dealership in North Central Pennsylvania. It wasn't long before he was working as an apprentice RV technician under the guidance of the RV service manager. Mark then entered and served a full career as a ‎Maintenance Warrant Officer in the United States Army. He managed large fleet maintenance operations, where he not only had ‎to understand vehicle maintenance, he had to teach young soldiers how to maintain and operate ‎expensive vehicles and equipment. These soldiers came to him from very different backgrounds, and their prior experience with heavy equipment and mechanical skills were similarly varied. Mark had to learn how to ‎communicate with all of them clearly, concisely, and effectively, and he found that he had a ‎talent for teaching. The Army agreed, and eventually he was asked to produce written ‎instructional materials, including driver training manuals and operating procedures for motor ‎pools.‎

When he retired from the Army in 1996, Mark went to work for an RV dealership in ‎sales and service. He talked to customers about their needs and desires and helped them select ‎the right RV for them. He inspected used RVs for trade-in, he serviced customer RVs, and he ‎educated customers on how to operate and enjoy their vehicles. As an RV owner himself, throughout the years, he has owned and used all the classifications of RVs (travel trailer, motorhome, pop up, 5th wheel and truck camper). He even restored, from the ground up, a 67 Yellowstone travel trailer. It was clear to him there ‎were limited resources available to RV owners who wanted to learn more about how to operate and maintain their RVs. Owners’ manuals provide limited information, and most consumers ‎find them confusing.

Anecdotal information learned around campfires from other RV owners is ‎incomplete and can be unreliable.

Mark realized he had the knowledge and teaching ability ‎to fill that gap, and so in 1999, he began writing articles and books about how to choose, buy, ‎maintain, repair, and operate a variety of RVs. To date, he has produced more than 500 educational ‎videos, and authored 15 e-books, 3 paperback books, and more than 1,600 articles educating millions of RVers. His best-selling book, titled The RV Book, has sold over 52,000 copies to date.

‎Mark's first priority is the safety of his audience. To Mark, ‎this means anticipating the risks and challenges RVers will encounter when following his ‎instructions, ensuring that the information he provides is complete and accurate, and providing ‎enough information so his audience can make informed decisions about when to tackle ‎maintenance tasks themselves and when to take their vehicles to professionals.

His second ‎priority is his audience’ empowerment. He sends his students out on the road with confidence that they are equipped, prepared, ‎informed, and ready to enjoy themselves.‎Producing material that achieves those goals is a very difficult thing to do. RVs come in ‎a bewildering variety of different types, makes, models, and vintages, and when Mark writes ‎about tasks such as winterizing an RV plumbing system, (as we know there are many ways to winterize an RV), his instructions need to walk his readers through the process ‎regardless of which RV the reader happens to own.

Like his soldiers, his RV students come to him ‎with widely disparate levels of expertise, experience, talent, and motivation, and his instructions ‎must speak to all of them. Mark’s writing and video presentations are accurate and comprehensive. It is also clear, ‎concise, and easy to understand. He breaks complex, intimidating tasks down to easy steps.
