This is an RV 101 online e-book training course. 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.
Owning and operating an RV can get confusing at times. Checklists help us remember and keep things in the proper order. It is similar to going to the grocery store, if we don’t write down what we need inevitably we forget something and need to make another trip. With RVs there is just too much to try and remember. What do we need to take with us on our trip? What preventive maintenance do we need to do to protect our investment? What do we do when we arrive at the campground? This list goes on and on. That is the purpose of this e-book, to help you remember things you might forget if it wasn’t written down somewhere.
It would be impossible to list everything for everybody and for every type of RV because of the vast differences between each individual’s needs and the various types of RVs. However, there are many things that are common to RV ownership. My goal with this e-book is to identify those common items on checklists that pertain to each of us as it relates to RVing.
As I stated earlier these checklists are not all-inclusive. They are intended to serve as a basic guide and a reminder. When you use the checklists apply the items that meet your needs and the type of RV you have, and disregard items that don’t apply to you.
You can tailor the lists to match your specific needs. Then when you set out on your next RV adventure you will have the checklists to refer back to so nothing is overlooked or forgotten.
The Checklists for RVers e-book has 40 checklists on every RV topic imaginable.
