156579004549985.pngShowcasing its new, top-of-the-line Type A diesel chassis, Spartan Motors’ Specialty Chassis and Vehicles unit announces it will host education sessions on proper owner maintenance of an RV chassis at the 100th Annual Family Motor Coach Association Convention and RV Expo in North Dakota this week.

Kicking off today, the FMCA event is set to run through Saturday at the North Dakota State Fairgrounds in Minot.

“Our goal to give customers the knowledge to care for and maintain their coach and chassis to ensure longevity of a properly serviced vehicle," President of Spartan Specialty Vehicles President Steve Guillaume says. “FMCA is a great event to connect with Spartan chassis owners in person, provide onsite customer service, and answer questions on new product features.”

On display will be Spartan’s signature, American-flag-wrapped K3 605 chassis riding under the Entegra Cornerstone (standard model pictured).

New features include:
• Variable tension steering with driver control setting
• Tire pressure monitoring system with dash display
• Side camera visual display when turn signal activated

Other features of the chassis include the Spartan Advanced Protection System®, a comprehensive safety system with collision mitigation, adaptive cruise control, electronic stability control, and Spartan Safe Haul™, a chassis-integrated air-braking system for tow vehicles.

On-site training is intended to support customers' needs for technical training demands, Guillaume says. A seminar highlighting owner maintenance tips for parts and service will be held Thursday, Aug. 15, at 4:00 p.m. CT in the FFA Seminar Room One.

Additionally, Spartan will offer service appointments and interactive displays of the latest digital dash innovations and a motor home cockpit simulator.

The four-day FMCA event includes RV displays, exhibits, educational seminars, entertainment, member gatherings, and chapter and camping events.
