This is an RV 101 online e-book training course that can be viewed from computers, tablets, and smartphones. When you enroll in our training course you have the option to simply download the e-book and read it at your leisure and/or you can participate in the online training course. I wanted to add more than just an e-book, so the course material includes the written text, short video segments, related articles written by your instructor, helpful tips & tricks, fun RV University play & learn crossword puzzles and quizzes to help you retain the information.
Did you know that nearly one in 12 U.S. vehicle-owning households own an RV? This equates to over 9 million households.
So, why is RVing so popular?
It’s your mobile vacation home, your living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom on wheels. Not to mention air conditioning, satellite TV, and being able to take a hot shower. An RV offers you the freedom to roam the back roads and the flexibility to go whenever and wherever you want.
Owning and traveling in an RV is great, but just how does an RV work? How do you get hot water, cold food and TV when you’re out in the middle of nowhere? How is it possible to use electricity when you aren’t plugged into an electrical source, and what makes the shower work when you aren’t connected to a water source?
That’s what this e-book course is for, to answer all of these questions and more about what makes everything in and on your RV work.
Sit back, relax and let me walk you through owning and operating an RV. We’ll start with a brief explanation of what an RV is and take an in-depth look at the LP gas system, the water system and the electrical system on your RV. By the time you finish this e-book course you will have a much better understanding of how things work, and will be more comfortable using and operating your RV.
