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 .

WFCO Electronics adds Energy Management Video to Site

151924092897175.pngTo support the release of its EM-15 and EM-20 Energy Management Switches, Arterra Distribution, the RV division of The WFCO Group, added a comprehensive video to its website explaining the way the system works and the benefits of using the switches.

In essence, the EM-15 and EM-20 allow manufacturers to install more 110V appliances in an RV when the breaker box is already at capacity. The EM prioritizes use between appliances on the same breaker, creating what the company says is a safe, efficient and more cost-effective system than installing a higher amp service.

“We designed the EM-15 and EM-20 in response to the growing power demands of the RV industry,” said Rich Dotson, president of Arterra Distribution. “These flexible energy management switches can be used for different types of RVs, making them the most universal on the market. With the EM-15 and EM-20, the RV owner can choose which power loads are the most important, depending on their individual needs."
