RV Education 101, an RV training video and information company, announced today (March 26) the launch of a new Auto Education 101 blog site for auto enthusiasts.
“Towing a trailer or towing a car behind a motorhome is a major part of the RV experience,” co-owner Mark Polk said. “Periodic maintenance on your RV and on tow vehicles is the cornerstone to a safe enjoyable RV trip.”
Auto Education 101 is a blog site where people can learn more about auto care and maintenance topics while also enjoying classic car and truck restorations, truck reviews, product installation videos and other useful and fun information.
Equal-i-zer Hitch is sponsoring a classic truck restoration project that Polk is currently working on. The plan is to use the restored 1971 Dodge truck to tow a vintage 1967 Yellowstone trailer that Polk restored earlier to some RV and auto shows.
Rich Elliott, sales and marketing director at Progress Manufacturing, said, “Equal-i-zer Hitch is excited to be teaming up with Mark Polk and RV Education 101 again. For years, RV Education 101 has put out great information that is so helpful to RVers. We use RV Education 101 videos to train new employees.”
Co-owner Dawn Polk noted, “We thought with the truck restoration project ramping up, this would be a good time to launch our new Auto Education 101 site. If you like classic cars and trucks, and want to learn auto care and maintenance the easy way, this is a great site to visit and learn from.”

RV Education 101 has launched its 2012 RV Summer Safety Awareness Program, designed to remind RV owners about important safety practices as the travel season gets under way.
“RV safety is extremely important and understanding how to react during an emergency situation can be the difference between life and death,” said RV Education 101 owner Mark Polk. “As part of our JUST RV IT campaign we designed our 2012 RV 101 RV Summer Safety Awareness Program. Our goal with the Summer Safety Awareness Program is to provide RV owners with pertinent RV safety related articles, information and a free online RV Safety E-Course to help keep folks safe when they are out enjoying their RV travel adventures.”
Polk said that it only takes a few minutes to read and review the RV Summer Safety Awareness program , or to take the free online RV safety e-course offered by RV education 101 by clicking here.
Polk added, “Please take a minute to read the posts, take the free RV safety e-course, refresh your memory on RV safety topics and keep RV safety foremost on your mind this summer.”

RV Education 101, a Harrells, N.C.-based RV training video and information company, announced the launch of a new RV consumer video site.
“In an effort to continue improving RV safety awareness and RV consumer education, we made the decision to incorporate a consumer driven RV video training site along with our other RV training offerings,” said owner Mark Polk. “Video is the consumer’s choice venue for learning about their RV and we felt that in many cases a short how-to video can quickly and easily answer a question or concern the RV owner might have. It just makes sense to consolidate some of our RV video training into one easy to navigate site for the consumer.
RV101.TV currently offers over 50 RV how-to training videos organized into specific RV categories. The RV consumer can click on the training category they are interested in and get a listing of all available video titles within that category.
Polk added, “This new video site is the perfect training portal for RV dealers to offer to their customers for additional training on how to use and maintain their RVs. We feel that this RV video training site combined with our new RV Consumer E-magazine, are beneficial resources toward the goal of improving the RV consumer’s knowledge and education.”
For more information contact Dawn@rveducation101.com.
RV Education 101 today announced that the second issue of its new monthly RV Consumer e-magazine has been released.
“The response to our new free RV Consumer e-Magazine has been tremendous. And the positive feedback we received from readers is reinforced by the increase in our e-news stats and subscriber base,” said Mark Polk, owner of the RV training video and information company. “After publishing only three issues of the new e-magazine we are excited with the early results. It just affirms what we knew a long time ago, RV consumers want to learn everything they can about using and caring for their recreation vehicle.”
Polk said that his goal with the e-magazine is to provide RV consumers with useful information on RV products, RV how-to topics, rig reviews and RV destinations.
The February issue of the e-magazine addresses RV topics and RV information ranging from traveling with pets to RV aftermarket products and the top seven RV owner maintenance mishaps.

RV Education 101, an RV training video and information company, recently announced it has launched a new consumer e-magazine aimed at RV enthusiasts.
“I started the company because I felt there was a lack of safety awareness and consumer education for RV owners,” Mark Polk, owner of RV Education 101, said in a press release. “Over the past decade our goal has been to inform and educate RV owners, and perspective owners, on how to properly and safely use and maintain their RV.
“The way we do this is by producing professional RV training videos on all aspects of RV ownership. Since 1999, we have helped educate well over a quarter-million RV owners. Additionally we have published an RV e-newsletter that includes RV how-to information and video tips for the past decade. We feel we are at a point where it makes sense for the e-newsletter to evolve into a digital consumer driven e-magazine.”
Polk said research indicates the RV consumer actively seeks information and knowledge on RV products, RV how-to topics, RV types and other general RV information.
“Our goal is to continue to be the premier provider of this RV information, direct to the consumer through various outlets,” he explained.
RV Education 101 currently offers 20 RV instructional DVDs, 14 RV e-books and three published RV books in its RV training library.
The first issue was distributed to more than 20,000 current subscribers. Polk said the timing of the first issue of RV Consumer e-magazine couldn’t be better.
“Just returning from the 49th Annual National RV Trade Show, we have a great deal of information available for consumers on 2012 RV- and camping-related topics,” he explained. “We wanted to get it out in a timely manner, directly to consumers while the RV news and information was up-to-the-minute. The only question now is whether we distribute the e-magazine monthly or quarterly. Either way we intend to fill in the gaps with our regular e-newsletter edition.”

RV Education 101, a video and RV information company recently released a new RV instructional DVD titled, “Tow your 5th Wheel Trailer Like a Pro.”
In this video hosts Mark Polk (RV Education 101) and Lorrin Walsh (professional driver and author of “Drive Your Motorhome Like a Pro”) provide the tools to help the RV consumer tow their fifth-wheel like a professional driver, according to a news release. That means professionalism developed by the ongoing awareness of safe and proper towing techniques, and the execution of unique driving techniques needed to become a safer and a more confident driver.
Polk, owner and video producer, stated, “Towing a fifth-wheel trailer, especially for the first time, can be very intimidating. The truth is with the proper training almost any experienced driver can adapt to towing and backing a fifth-wheel trailer. There are lots of folks who have been towing trailers for lots of years without having a real understanding of the dynamics and proper driving and towing techniques.”
“Tow your 5th Wheel Trailer Like a Pro” is the first and only complete video guide to professional driving and towing techniques available for both beginning and seasoned RVer, Polk said.
Polk goes on to say, “Of the 17 RV instructional DVDs we offer, this is one of the best to help educate the RV consumer on such an important topic. A professional training course like this can cost upward of several hundred dollars, if not more. We offer this comprehensive training DVD for only $24.95. This is an absolute must-see DVD for anybody considering purchasing and towing a fifth-wheel trailer.”
This 98-minute DVD is packed with charts and hands-on instruction covering topics like: selecting a tow vehicle, fifth-wheel hitches, hitching and unhitching, pre-trip inspections, setting the mirrors, steering, reference points, towing techniques, backing, braking and much more.
Dawn Polk, co-owner, added, “We don’t want fifth-wheel owners to be overwhelmed with their new RV lifestyle. Our goal with all of our products is to teach the RV consumer all that we can to help make their RV experiences everything it should be, safe, fun and stress free. RV owners can review our RV training videos as many times as they want or need.”
