RV Industry Association Pioneers New Standards with Introduction to RV-C Course

The RV Industry Association’s (RVIA) RV-C Subcommittee has been instrumental in the introduction of the Introduction to RV-C course

This course, now a part of the RV Technical Institute’s curriculum, is designed to empower technicians with the expertise to understand and adeptly utilize RV-CAN (RV-C), a diagnostic cornerstone in the RV sector. The course delves deep into the intricacies of RV-C, encompassing its foundational aspects, physical layer, operational dynamics, and the software tools integral to its application.

The RV-C Subcommittee’s visionary approach has been pivotal in recognizing the need for a standardized communication protocol in the RV industry

Their proactive stance, marked by their reconvening in 2019, has been a catalyst for the RV-C educational shift. This strategic move underscores the RV-C Subcommittee’s commitment to enhancing industry standards and ensuring technicians are equipped with cutting-edge knowledge.

RV-C, colloquially known as RV-CAN, is revolutionizing the RV industry. As a communication linchpin between diverse devices within an RV, it promises a seamless and integrated operational experience. With the RV landscape undergoing rapid technological metamorphosis, the indispensability of a tool like RV-C is more pronounced than ever. Technicians proficient in RV-C are uniquely positioned to troubleshoot and enhance the RV experience, especially as RVs evolve with RV-C compatible innovations.

The RV Industry Association’s unwavering commitment to safety and excellence is epitomized in its Standards program. Conducting rigorous, unannounced inspections annually, the program is a testament to the industry’s dedication to upholding safety-centric standards. 

As RVs become more technologically advanced, the role of a robust diagnostic tool like RV-C becomes indispensable. The RV-C course, with its rich and comprehensive curriculum, is set to be the beacon for technicians, ensuring they are equipped to navigate the RV industry’s evolving landscape.

The RV-C Subcommittee’s role in introducing the RV-C course is a testament to their foresight and dedication. 

As the RV industry charts its future course, the RV-C Subcommittee’s pioneering efforts ensure that the journey ahead is safe, innovative, and promising for all RV enthusiasts.
