MCD Training Techs in Retrofit Installations
Technicians from a number of different RV renovation companies from across the country gathered in McKinney, Texas, Nov. 2-5 for the latest in an ongoing series of educational MCD Innovations Dealer Training Sessions.
The intensive four-day course allowed technicians in the RV renovation and retrofit market to learn in detail how to design, measure and install MCD American Duo Shade Systems in RV windshield, cockpit and living areas, according to a news release.
“This training course is designed to provide MCD authorized dealers the knowledge necessary to properly design and install the popular American Duo Shade Systems,” said Carla Townsley of MCD Innovations.
The student/technicians were given training on how to design and install one-, two-, and three-piece windshield shade systems. They also worked hands-on with MCD factory installers/trainers during the measuring and installation process for the house shades of a number of different motor coaches and fifth-wheels. An extensive factory explanatory tour helped the students understand how and why each of the shade component parts are designed to function harmoniously together.
Graduation certificates were awarded to students Jim Lewis and Heath McIntire of Infinity Coach Inc., Sumner, Wash.; Keith Neilson and Brian Conrad of Davis Cabinets, Junction City, Ore.; Joh Visser of 3-T’s RV Products Inc., Lake Havasu, Ariz.; and Richard Martin of Brenda’s Blind Service, Dodge City, Kan.
