What does RV orientation Video mean?
RV orientation video is a class I give similar to an RV dealer’s class given to the consumer after an RV is sold. My term RV orientation® video can be used interchangeably with the term RV walk-through video.
The RV Industry term is RV walk through. The RV Education 101 company wanted to be different from the standard “RV Dealer Walk Through Class” so they coined the term RV Orientation® video class.
Buying an RV is exciting and when you pick it up, the only thing on your mind is getting it home and planning that first exciting adventure. Yes, the dealer gave you a walk-through of the unit, but there was so much information and excitement that it was overwhelming. Now it’s in your driveway and you can’t remember everything that was covered. We understand that feeling and we have you covered.
Our RV Orientation video program helps to build excitement prior to accepting delivery while providing preliminary training before the dealer staff gives the RV customer the official walk through. This will cut down on dealer orientation time, questions and follow-up calls to the dealership.
It is our goal to assist you in learning how to properly and safely use and maintain your Recreation Vehicle. In our unique online training course we put the RV dealer orientation (walk through) class into video format (with supporting text and learning tools) so you can watch it as many times as you like, or need, until you are comfortable using your new RV.
What kind of online training will I receive?
The easy to understand format uses charts and hands-on demonstration to cover topics like campground setup, the LP gas system, water system, wastewater system, and the electrical system. In addition to the major systems of an RV the video includes instruction on RV appliances and RV accessories. The video is generic and covers both towable and motorized RV’s.
If there are other RV topics you are interested in learning about after completing the orientation training course be sure and check out our entire offering of RV training courses available at RV Training Online.
Happy RV Learning!
