Seminars / Discussions at the FROG Rally

We want to make the FROG Rally as fun, as useful, and as informational as we (reasonably) can to everyone attending. As part of that we will be offering seminars and discussions on various topics.

I'm setting up a poll to get your ideas on some of the items that you might like to see. These topics are only a starting point, so please feel free to leave comments suggesting others. You may vote for more than one topic.

If you have an area of expertise and would like to lead a discussion that would be great. For example, a professional photographer in the group has offered to lead a seminar on photography tips.

As with the "Traveling Together to Goshen" thread, please keep it relatively serious so that we can get some good suggestions to make the rally as good as it can be. We can't guarantee that we'll be able to do everything, but we'll do our best.

Thanks!

Very good idea Bob!

If I can be of assistance please let me know.


Winterizing/dewinterizing would be a great topic for some.

Know your rv and what does what .

How to troubleshoot common problems for newbies!
Slide not working, propane not flowing, water heater not heating, etc.

What would be REALLY awesome would be the chance to try driving/parking various types of RVs out in a big parking lot. Answer the question, could I be comfortable stepping up to that motorhome, fifth, or longer trailer? How different is the feel betwwen a DP and a gasser? I would pay for that, LOL!

And maybe tours

Great idea on discussions, I voted on what I would find useful. Not to hijack the thread, but would also be interested in tours that are planned. For instance, definitely want to see the FR plant and also interested in the Coachman plant (yes, they are part of FR!). Can you post what is planned so far and some other maybes so we can express our interest? Thanks for all you do!!!
Lou

Biglou, we'll be setting up plant tours based, at least in part on what people are driving, work schedules, size of plants and their capability of handling groups of visitors.

I don't know if I'll remember them all of the top of my head, but last year I know we toured Rockwood, Flagstaff, Sierra, Sandpiper, r-Pod, Sportscoach, Columbus Dynamax, and pre-delivery inspection. There were a few folks whom we helped to line up individual visits at some of the other plants as well.

Other suggestions would be inspection of bearings, replacing and repacking wheel bearings and replacing seals and inspection and adjusting brakes.

Installing Maxxair(or other brand) vent covers.
