    The NRVTA {National RV Training Academy} school in Athens, Texas

    Last night I watched a "Changing Lanes" Youtube video on this school and thought it was interesting.
    Does anyone have experience with this school and is it a good investment?
    I am not mechanicallly inclined and am at a loss on properly maintaining our 2450rl.
    Thanks in advance for any comments:

    Iím with you; I found it quite interesting. I was thinking RV inspection might be a decent retirement gig.

    If I lived close to that area, I might apply for a part time job with them (I'm retired so nothing full time) and see if I could teach the electrical part of the classes. I think it would be fun to do and could certainly offer up some valuable info for anyone interested in digging a little deeper into the electrical end of things on an RV. My one weakness is solar.....I have never in all 40+ years of being a Journeyman Electrician, delved into solar systems and at this point in time, have pretty much zero interest in it.

    I live in Georgia and would be interested in attending if you did an RV electrical course in your area.
    There are several electrical changes we would like to do (light dimmers for one) but we do not have
    the ac / dc knowledge.

    I've thought about and checked out NRVTA in the past. I then watched the Changing Lanes video last night. Not sure I could get the time off of work. Maybe for the first 1 week course. Probably not for the inspector 3 week course.

    I watched the same video and have been thinking about the mobile RV tech gig. Just not sure I'm ready to go full-time and leave my current job!

    If I had high confidence in the income level (impossible to predict), I'd jump at it!
    Would need to head south in the winter though; can't imagine mobile RV techs are busy in the snow
