RVIA to host low-voltage wiring workshop in Elkhart

RESTON, Va. — The RV Industry Association will host a low-voltage wiring workshop at its Elkhart office June 13 and again June 14, the group announced today.

This eight-hour workshop was developed to provide hands-on training for all levels of personnel, including management, technicians, mechanics and engineers where they will focus on high quality, reliability wiring design and installation.

The workshop will be presented by instructor Robert “Bob” Wind, an experienced automotive engineer with more than 40 years in the field. For more than four decades, Wind designed, developed, tested and analyzed many robust electrical systems and is now applying his experience in the classroom with others.

This exclusive one-day workshop will encompass a full spectrum of topics in relation to low-voltage wiring with the basis of upgrading wiring to conventional GM/Ford/FCA/Toyota “OEM best practice” design philosophies.

Topics of discussion include:

  • Wire stranding
  • Wire insulation characteristics and type applications
  • Connectors – single and multi-cavity; location, orientation, and terminal population
  • Terminals – ring, splice, high-amperage; common installation mistakes and oversights
  • Protective wire/harness coverings for protection against abrasion, heat, and corrosion – with specific manufacturer part number recommendations provided based on severity of application
  • Fasteners – metal
  • Harness location assurance via clipping and plastic fasteners
  • High-current cable routing
  • Low-current cable routing
  • Data bus wire routing
  • Failure diagnosis
  • Failure mitigation

Space is limited as only eight seats are available per workshop each day. The cost is $450 per person. Registration will be live Monday.
