McCoy, a 33-year fire service veteran who spent 12 years as fire training coordinator of the Oregon Fire Marshal’s Office and Public Safety Academy, is one of many experts who will be on hand to offer demonstrations and teach classes for both new and experienced RVers. The school will be held at two locations, with the Saturday session at the college followed by a Sunday session at the McLendon hardware store in Renton.
Free dry camping will be available to RVers at the college Friday and Saturday nights.
The Saturday program will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with more than 25 classes on topics such as buying an RV, maintaining an RV, wireless computer usage, navigational systems, full-time RVing, RV insurance, cooking in an RV, and travel destinations. In the fire and life safety class, McCoy, who has become an expert on RV fires, will explain how to prevent fires and show what to do if one should occur.
The Sunday school from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at McLendon Hardware will offer classes on plumbing and electrical repairs. In addition, certified technicians will be on hand to answer specific questions and conduct walk-throughs of RVs.
