RVIA Tech Subcommittees Review Standards
The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association’s (RVIA) four technical subcommittees – heating, electrical, plumbing, and fire & life safety – met the week of Oct. 1 in Ft. Myers, Fla., to review and discuss various standards issues, according to a news release.
The subcommittees took action on proposed handbook updates based on the 2011 editions of NFPA 1192, ANSI 12V, and NEC. In addition, the subcommittees reviewed action taken on 2014 ANSI 12V, NEC & NFPA 1192 code change proposals to determine if any comments were necessary to be submitted into ANSI or NFPA.
This also marked the first time that recreational park trailer members were represented on all four technicals to consider Recreational Park Trailer Handbook Update proposals and 2014 ANSI A119.5 code changes up for review and action. All recreational park trailer recommendations resulting from the technical subcommittee meeting will be reviewed by RVIA’s Standards Steering Committee and then be forwarded to the Recreational Park Trailer Committee for final approval.
