California RV Show October 2018
Ramblin' Pushers 2018 Maintenance Session
To Jim and Jane Grossman, a big “Thank You” for inviting us to the 2018 Ramblin’ Pushers Maintenance Rally in Goshen Indiana. You both did an awesome job and made the event a great success!
For all of you who attended our “What Every RV Driver Should Know” presentation and for those of you who signed up for Behind the Driver training, “Thank you.”
And for everyone who requested our “Air Brakes Explained” information we want you to know that this is now available on our website as a free download.
Driving a large vehicle is NOT difficult, it’s just different and once you understand the basics, it’s a lot of fun. Look at all the happy faces that got behind the wheel! If your organization would like RV Basic Training to present and train at your upcoming event, please contact Gary
All commercial drivers are advised to always use 'Three Points of Contact' when entering or exiting their vehicles.
The reason is to make sure that they will not slip or fall out of the vehicle. I have seen a number of instances where people have fallen out of their RV’s or Mobile Clinics as a result of NOT using the Three Point rule, including my sister-in-law just this past week. She tripped on the top stair and fell through the RV screen door onto the cement, landing on her wrists and head. Luckily she was NOT seriously injured and other than two sprained wrists, a black eye and a few bruises she is OK. It could have been MUCH worse!
Last summer, our daughter fractured four ribs while exiting a trailer. The pull-out stairs were in use along with a small plastic stool, placed at the base. With both arms wrapped around a young child, she stepped onto the stool, which rocked, causing her to lose balance and fall back onto the edge of the metal stairs. OUCH!! Six week of her summer vacation spent recovering. The take-away is always have one hand free to help keep your balance.
Please make sure that all visitors to your coach or trailer ALWAYS use the hand rail and are aware of the dangers associated with entering and exiting an RV. Don’t let inattention spoil your fun.
If you have a passion for RVing, have a CDL in good standing with a valid
instructors permit and would like to be part of our growing team.
