Great news for RVers and wannabe RVers who wanted to attend Life on Wheels!
Walter Cannon, Executive Director of the Recreational Vehicle Safety Education Foundation (RVSEF) announced yesterday that RVSEF is holding an RV Lifestyle, Safety and Education Clinic September 13 – 16, 2009 at the Wildwood Conference Center at Harrisburg Area Community College in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
In the last few weeks, Walter has discussed the new program with me a couple of times, and we have been exchanging e-mails. I am really excited about it. Walter and RVSEF are proven entities in the RV industry, and if anyone has the business acumen and the industry contacts to create a successful RV education program, Walter is the man.
Walter tells me that he will be bringing in many of the former Life on Wheels instructors, and from our conversations, I know that the program will be long on education without the “fluff” classes that had crept into the Life on Wheels schedule in its last year or two.
Attendees at the new program will learn about the different types of RVs available and how they will fit an individual’s needs, how to properly and safely operate their RVs, and come away with the knowledge and confidence to enjoy all that the RV lifestyle has to offer.
Special focus will be given to understanding how an RV’s different systems work, and how to maintain and operate them; warranties, insurance and roadside assistance programs available for RVers; and the RV lifestyle and how to get the most out of it. RV driver training will also be available, and attendees can arrange to have their rigs inspected for safety, and weighed by a RVSEF certified weighing crew.
Terry and I will be leaving Mission, Texas today headed toward Arizona. We have a couple of stops to make along the way, and I don’t now how cell phone reception will be along our intended route. So if you log on tomorrow and don’t see a blog, don’t get excited. We haven’t been beamed up by aliens or sold into servitude. We’re just exploring America’s Outback.
Thought For The Day – Don’t let adverse facts stand in the way of a good decision.
