Tonight, Bob and John will both be back in their “big chairs” and looking forward to one of our fireside chats about things that YOU want to talk about. We have some ideas on where we think the conversation will go.

Who’s training all the new RV owners that have purchased their first RV in the past three years?
Where can consumers go to learn more about their RV investment and how to take care of it?
Seminars at the many consumer RV shows that will take place between now and next Spring is a good place to start.

And now heading up Dougherty RV Consulting. We will talk to Chris about what he is teaching and what the RVers are asking about their RVs.

Some of our best shows are when we can showcase RVers chasing their dreams, hitting the road, and checking attractions and campgrounds off their bucket list. This week is very special because Ron and Bob go back to their days in the Document Imaging and Intelligent Information Management industries. Bob owned a document imaging company and Ron was a representative with Minolta Corporation, supporting their microfilm and digital scanning systems and software.
Ron is one of the most highly focused and detailed people you will ever meet. He meticulously takes care of his truck and Jayco fifth-wheel. Along with his wife, Rose Therrien Seidel, they eat healthy, exercise regularly and are wonderful examples of totally enjoying RVs and RV adventure in your years after 60. Rose catches the fish she cooks in her large RV kitchen, after a day of mountain biking or hiking in one of our incredible National Parks.
When they hit the road every aspect of the trip has been documented – from the time the leave their Atlanta suburban home, until they return. And before they go Ron will wash and wax the truck AND the Jayco fifth-wheel. They have more energy than people half their age and live life to the fullest.
Join us to learn about their adventures, some challenges, incredible photos – oh yes, he’s and outstanding photographer also – and an incident that almost sent them home half-way through the trip. You do not want to miss this show!

The RV Technical Institute released a YouTube video yesterday that focused on the amazing career opportunities available in the RV industry today for independent mobile technicians that offer on-site services not offered by many traditional RV dealers. They come your house, your business, the campground you are staying in or they will even meet you on the side of the road to help rescue your rig and that important family vacation.
To highlight this video, they featured one of our most qualified and respected NERVDA Associate Members, Ryan Hadley. Ryan came to NERVDA four years ago as he was launching his new mobile RV service and maintenance business. With the support of his wife Amy, and four wonderful children, it was time to chase his dream.
Today, he is one of most sought-after mobile techs in New England. Along the way Ryan trained at the RV Technical Institute in Elkhart, Indiana and is a Certified RV technician.
Join us tonight as we talk about the video and why it is so important to others thinking about a career change. He’ll talk about his first four years. Ryan’s mission is to make every customer a happy customer, his greatest reward is a smile on the face of those customers after he repairs their RV and gets them back on the road. Learn why RVTI selected Ryan for this video
June 14th 2023
We are joined this week by the woman behind the headlines, the stories, the media coverage, the product placements, the use of RVs when enjoying various outdoor experiences, and other ways our industry is being exposed to millions of people every day. That woman is Monika Geraci, RV Industry Spokesperson.
We are going to discuss this article, touch on the success of the recently concluded National Go RVing Day campaign and see what is on the horizon for other PR events and stories that may be forthcoming as we enter the on-ramp of the 2023 camping season and the RVs that move America!

The Go RVing website is often the first place that many newbies find when exploring RVs and the RV Lifestyle.
Join us tonight as Uncle Bernie Culliton sits in for John. We will be discussing different ways people will be celebrating on Saturday and have some video clips with NERVDA dealers talking about this important date on our RV calendars – the second Saturday in June! Join us for a fun show.

We have a lot to talk about but want you to drive the conversation tonight. Want to talk about the 2022 consumer shows in New England? How about the rising gas prices – will it impact your camping trips next year? Have you noticed that dealer inventories are up and special deals are out there and they are getting units ready for the Boston RV & Camping Expo. How about holiday gift ideas for your family, friends and camping partners. What would you like to receive this year? What RV gifts will you be giving this year?

Understanding RV Electricity with Mike Sokol
As RVs become more complex, especially in the area of electronics and electricity, one man has surfaced as the premiere RV electricity expert – and that is Mike Sokol, the author of the best-selling book; RV Electrical Safety.
We are happy to have Mike return for his second visit on RVing in New England. Mike has been an instructor at the Boston RV & Camping Expo. We hope to have him back with us in January next for the 2022 event. He draws huge crowds of RV owners that want to better understand the complexities of RV electricity and how to identify challenges with the new technologies being built into our towables and motorhomes.
Oct 27th, 2021
As the camping season winds down and RVers are preparing their rigs for hibernation, our thoughts turn to the holidays with our family, friends and loved ones. Unfortunately, there are challenges facing our country today that will impact many of your buying decisions this year. Cargo ships sit idle in Los Angeles and Long Beach harbors, companies struggle to hire workers in all industries, and large behemoth retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Target and others warn of shortages that will delay holiday gift giving.
Well, we have the perfect solution for you as John and I will lead a discussion tonight on the creativity of campers and RV enthusiasts and how you plan to work around the issues. Our suggestion is quite simple, shop at your local RV dealer, parts and accessories store, and service centers. Since RVing is predominantly and American industry, why are we buying so many components, parts, and items that are not MADE IN AMERICA?

Where do all the new first-time buyers go for education? The same place veteran RVers have been going for the last 22 years!
In 1999 Mark and Dawn Polk had a vision of what RV consumer education in the future should look like. It was a video tape – remember those? Through the years the business evolved with each new technology and continued to grow. Today, RV Education 101 is the premiere consumer go-to website to learn about their RV training programs and have a library of information that directly relates to the type of RV they own or are considering buying.

Labor Day is in the rearview mirror, nights are a little chilly, and we want to squeeze out another month or two of fall camping. But, it is now time to get the RVs ready for winterization and who better to turn to than our good friend Randy Murray, Director of Service for Pete’s RV Centers. With so many first-time buyers during the pandemic, it is important to understand what you should – and should not – do to get your investment ready for hibernation. And that means understanding all the things you should be checking out, making appointments for service work, and doing some fall cleaning inside and outside your RV.
Sept 1st, 2021
As we come into the long Labor Day Weekend, It’s crazy to think that our short camping season here in New England will soon be ending! This will be followed with about six more weeks of camping that will get us past the Columbus Day weekend and then you get ready to hibernate your RVs for the winter or head South for some snowbirding adventures before we see you back here in the Spring.

As the industry continues to break records every month with new product sales, it creates opportunities for new companies to enter the industry with exciting new ideas and services. One of those company’s is our newest NERVDA Associate Member, Rescue My RV, the brainchild of co-founders Brenton Jones and Philip Pietrowski, Jr.
Although they market the services to RV dealerships, we thought it would be helpful for them to talk to our fans about the service, what is is and what it isn’t and how they are helping RVers that have service issues or breakdown while traveling to their next destination or weekend camping adventure.
August 4th, 2021
This has been another, absolutely crazy, season for RVers and RV Dealers and Campers and Campgrounds. And here we are half-way through the traditional Northeast camping season and we have so much to talk about, and we know you do also.

Utopia: Doing what you love to do on your own terms!
When Mike Gast majored in journalism at the University of North Dakota School of Journalism he probably didn’t imagine a twenty-year break in his writing career to communicate with the world about camping and campgrounds. As the VP of Communications for KOA, many of us in the media had the pleasure of working with Mike and his team as we witnessed the tremendous growth of that iconic brand in the outdoor hospitality business.
Mike recently retired from KOA and has moved to Hawaii, returning to his roots as a creative writer and journalist, writing for RV Travel and other companies looking for a man of such talents.

RV Self Park concept. In fact, it has gone from concept to reality and if you are traveling in Missouri you could be one of the first RVers in the country to try it out.
I’m sure our fans will have a lot of questions and feedback for Jim as he explains how he came up with idea and how he is making it happen. He will also discuss his plans for other locations along America’s highways and byways.
And it took an RVer to do it. We all know most of the great ideas in RVs and campgrounds come from veteran RVers who solve the challenges of the lifestyle and make it easier for others.

Our guest this week is Randy Murray, Director of Service at Pete's RV Centers.
Baseball has returned, flowers are blooming, good weather is arriving and that can only mean one thing, we better get Randy Murray back on the show to make sure you kick off the camping season the right way. And that means understanding all the things you should be checking out, making appointments for service work, and doing some spring cleaning inside and outside your RV.
We want everyone to enjoy trouble-free camping, but it doesn’t come automatically and these hand-made pieces of mobile enjoyment and camping under the stars do need some TLC to be READY when you are ready to hit the road.
Randy is a YouTube rock star with his helpful videos on a myriad of topics and is the Director of Service for the five Pete’s RV Centers from New England to Indiana.
