RICHMOND, B.C. — Back by popular demand, the RV Industry Association’s Trouble Shooter Clinic is in Montreal Nov. 17 to 18. The clinics offer hands-on training for technicians by numerous industry suppliers.
There are three training tracks to choose from:
Nov. 17 and 18 — Running gear, hydraulics, slideouts, towing and hitches. Cost is $320 (US) per person.
Nov. 18 to 21 — Appliances, water heaters, on-demand water heaters, air conditioning and heating, refrigerators and furnaces. Cost is $640 (US) per person.
Nov. 19 to 21 — Power Sources (generators, converters, power systems, batteries, inverters and transfer switches, energy management systems and RV-CTM. Cost is $480 (US) per person.
“We have changed the training schedule to allow your technicians to be able to enroll in two different tracks to maximize training opportunities,” said Eleonore Hamm, RVDA of Canada executive director. “On the registration form, we also ask you to indicate the technician’s experience. This way, students with similar experiences can be grouped together.”
RVDA of Canada is once again offering a mail-in rebate program upon successful completion, per RVDA member location. For five registrants per member location, dealerships are entitled up to $1,550 in rebates.

“Yes, we know you’ll eventually get to registering but how about now?” said Hamm. “We’re very excited that this will be our very first fully bilingual training event. Everything will be in English and French. The translators will be well-versed in your everyday RV terminology. For the English speakers, relax, the trainers all speak English.
“Hands-on training is how technicians prefer to be trained, but is also very expensive to implement,” she explained. “RVIA, RVDA and industry suppliers are coming together with only one goal in mind — to offer the most advanced training currently available to you. We will be the first to say it, without the generous sponsorship of many suppliers, this training event would not be feasible. We need your commitment as soon as possible.”
