Well been a while since i was last here but someone pointed out this post so i had to remember my password, pay a subscription just to reply lol
Oh how the mighty have fallen !

Anyway

People asking who am I to teach etc, well

I have a national diploma in electrical engineering, City & Guilds in Electronics, 2 year stint as an Instructor in the Navy, 15 years experience with Motorhomes, 2.5 of which were living on a van touring Europe, 10 years experience selling accessories to Motorhome owners, 6 years running a workshop servicing and repairing and fitting accessories to Motorhomes where I am the lead fitter.

I am Acops trained for 12v/230v/Gas in relation to Motorhomes,
Truma / Thetford / Alde / Teleco / Telair / Oyster / Thetford / Dometic trained and approved, Regional Centre of Excellence for Satfi Systems and have worked on innumerable vans over the last 6 years diagnosing, fitting, repairing them.

I "think" I have sufficient experience nowadays to pass on tidbits of info lol

The reasoning behind the course has roots in customers who roll up to our workshop for work on their vehicle having bought a new van and realising they don't really know much about how it actually operates. This stems from a none standardised handover system within the UK Motorhome Industry and also customer arrives for their handover at dealers, one of them or the sole customer is very nervous as they are anticipating driving most likely the most expensive and largest vehicle they have ever driven and so topped up with excitement of the whole event they most likely absorb 20-30% of what the Salesman relays to them at the handover.

Quite often we pick up the pieces in workshops in that customers arrive and in quite a few cases don't know about how the charging systems operate, how consumption works, how water is emptied and filled, how to turn the heating on and so on and so we spend quite a lot of time with them trying to educate them into using their vans safely.

Some customers had asked why I didn't operate seminars to do a similar thing and hence http://www.motorhomeacademy.com was born !

1 day "Introduction to Motorhomes" is the title and the course will be capped at 10 and last all day and go through basics from types of vans and through motorhome technical operation and appliances etc.
Yes there will be catalogues, handouts, flyers and also a copy of a book I have been writing off and on for seemingly years and yes hopefully the attendees will come away from the course with the impression that we are professional, knowledgeable and courteous and may return with new vans in the future which will be an added benefit.

Nice to see some familiar names floating around, any questions let me know via PM etc

cya for now

Thanks for the explanation I have to say it surprises me but then some people do not like asking questions and I still think recording the handover on video makes the dealer think a lot more....

Good luck to you on that.....

You might like to contact VS 'cos you are still heavily involved in the joining process including sending out welcome messages - not bad as a non-member is not supposed to be allowed to use the PM system.....

Seriously though, there is a lot on the old page which needs to be pruned away as it is years out of date....

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.
