RVIA Economic Impact Study

The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association commissioned an Economic Impact Study on the RV industry, released on June 7, 2016. The study found that the RV industry contributes about $49.7 billion in economic output or 0.28 percent of the Gross Domestic Product. Through its production and distribution linkages, the industry impacts firms in 426 of the 440 sectors of the United States economy.

Nationwide, the industry is responsible for 216,170 jobs, both directly and inderectly, creating an economic impact of $37.5 billion. The full study results, along with each individual state and congressional district's economic impact is available on the website by clicking here .

Tracerline Debuts New VioMax Plus

Wed Sep 7, 2016

147326636942794.jpgWestbury, New York ─ Seeing leaking fluid on the shop floor but not being able to trace it back to the source is not only frustrating — it’s time consuming and expensive too.

With Tracerline's new product, the VioMax Plus, a telescopic, True UV leak detection lamp engineered for finding A/C and fluid leaks in tight, cramped areas inaccessible to larger lamps, the time and effort could be reduced.

The VioMax Plus's 400 nm violet light LED offers optimal fluorescent response and contrast, and works with both universal/ester and PAG A/C dyes, as well as most fluid dyes.

Finding leaks in an automotive system can be easy using the dye, according to a press release. The RVer only needs to add a small amount of Tracerline fluorescent dye to the leaky system and let it circulate. The dye will escape with the refrigerant or liquid. When scanned with the VioMAX Plus, the leak will glow brightly.

The VioMAX Plus is lightweight and portable; weighing a mere 1.6 ounces. It measures 9 inches in the closed position and extends to a full 29 inches. With the aid of the large pivoting mirror, measuring 1 inch in diameter (2.54 cm), the technician can clearly view the most elusive leaks from any angle; even those that are out of sight and out of reach. And there’s never a concern about having the batteries die out, because the lamp automatically turns on when the shaft is extended and off when the shaft is compressed.

Powered by three 1.5 volt batteries (included), the VioMAX Plus has an LED service life of 100,000 hours.

Because they can safely stay working in vehicle systems and never have to be flushed out, Tracerline dyes are a cost-effective method for finding future leaks too.
