10 yrs full timing now. CERTIFIED RV TECHNICIAN

As I haven't post anything for a long time here we go!

I been full time RV living for 10 yrs and around 60k traveled.
We stayed 3 yrs in our 99 avion and 7 in our 2013 RW 36FL.

After fixing many problems on our unit and others, i decided to go to school at the NRVTA in TX
To become a certified RV technician
Getting the proper training in AC units, water Heather's, abortion refrigerators, slide out and exterior.
Plus a advanced training on lippert leveling system, Solera awnings etc...

I hope to be able to help everyone out with the proper way to diagnose problems and not just replacing parts.
Please feel free to ask questions that might concern you.

Travel safe !!!

Lorenz, Congrats on the certification .
I do hope that you meant absorption refrigeration units and not abortion units.

That's okay, I've been trying to figure out is I have a "water Heather's", not sure if it's a new kind of plant. LOL

Sorry Lorenz, been getting bored as most of our Northern Friends have already gone North, while we're waiting another couple of weeks as they had snow just last week.

Yes Jason was very friendly and explained to me how to switch sim cards between providers to make his set up work.
Yes the internet service is pretty expensive for the real time full RV'er, but he has a lot of editing to do and a lot of upload data for his business to work.

I suggested a video on learn how to run a RV on -0 or below.

I also think for most RV owners out there the fundamentals is a great opportunity to see how your rig works.
I believe Jason took the 1 week class of fundamentals on the specifics on how to run your RV.
It will teach you how many Amps you are pulling on your AC, how all three water systems work, simple trouble shooting and regular maintenance to your RV.
To become a certified RV Tech you have to complete 5 weeks of class with full hands on and diagnosis of many different manufactures and components and a very comprehensive written test.

I have to say for all full timers out there !!!
Get your unit inspected by a NRVI inspector before buying. It will save you a ton of money. They will give you about a 150 page inspection with more pictures than you can imagine. That way you can have the dealer fix them ahead of your pick up date IF you are still interested in buying.
Or have a certified NRVTA tech to fix them. The level of education of this place is unreal. So much documentation and hands on. i love it!!!! It has been a fantastic experience. And again if being a tech or inspector isn't your thing I still highly recommend taking the RV Fundamentals course to any RV owner.
