RV Maintenance Schools

We are getting ready to purchase our first used Class A motorhome and I thought it would be good to take a motorhome maintenance and repair course. Does anyone have any suggestions as to good, reputable school where I could pick-up a solid understanding of motorhome systems and thier maintenance and repair?

I went to the Recreational Vehicle Service Academy in Palmetto in 2004. May be more than you are looking for--10 weeks long and came out a certified RV Technician. But I did learn a lot!

Where are you located? I am going to recommend this as a great primer for anyone getting into RV'ing.

This is in Kelowna, British Columbia at Okanagan College (they have an RV Certification program there) and it is 3 days worth of almost everything the starter might find handy. Topics change a little bit every year but here is a sampling of some of the topics

Propane Safety
RV Tires
Generator Maintenance
Full Timing
RV Cooking
Campground Memberships
Electrical problem solving
Holding Tanks, maintenance
Working from your RV
Hotwater Tanks, How they work/maintenance.

And that is just a partial list. You can pick and choose what you want and you Boondock in the college parking lot for the 3 or 4 days. All classes are either taught by instructors or some cases fulltimers or company reps eg. (Onan), The cost including barbecues and entertainment in the evenings.... a whole $190.00 Canadian per person.

This year is June 22 -25th.

I can't overstate the value for the money. If you are at all close, this would be an excellent place to start.

It is called the RV Owners Lifestyle Seminars. This is the weblink

Thanks for the great suggestions. I live in Seattle so the B.C. gig sounds like a great first place to start. I checked-out the RV Doctor site and it is a great site.
