Truma Announces Winter Dealer Training Schedule

Tue Jan 16, 2018

151612989844813.jpgTruma will hold four training sessions for dealers and technicians in select national locations over the next two months, according to a company press release, covering how to properly operate, install and repair Truma products including the Truma AquaGo and Truma Combi.

“More customers are looking for RVs with Truma products already on board so there has been an increase in dealers stocking these coaches, in addition to offering aftermarket installations,” says Mark Howlett, SVP of Business Development at Truma, based in Elkhart, Indiana.

“As sales of the Truma AquaGo increase, there is a greater need to train those dealers and technicians who sell RVs equipped with Truma products,” he says. “Our ongoing commitment to the North American RV industry means we support the development of technicians and dealers and their understanding of the latest technology available in the market.”

The $94, one-day events will deliver both a classroom presentation as well as hands-on troubleshooting and repair for the Truma AquaGo and Truma Combi. Training sessions last eight hours and participants are eligible to receive all eight hours as accredited training toward their RVIA TnT required hours.

The winter training sessions are as follows, with information on sessions in Ontario, Canada still forthcoming. Click on the links below to go to the Event Bright registration links, or email training@trumacorp.com for more information:
