Hi & welcome to my RV DIY® Channel

My name is Mark Polk and I am the owner of RV Education 101® and RV Consumer. Many years ago I had concerns about the lack of RV safety awareness and educational material available to you, the RV consumer. To help improve on educating RV owners and RV enthusiasts I started RV Education 101. We produce RV training DVDs and publish books and e-books on every RV topic imaginable. I am proud to say that over the past 15 years we have helped educate millions of  RV owners on how to safely and properly use, maintain and enjoy their RVs.

While attending a trade show last year one of my colleagues said, “You know, you’re like the Bob Villa of the RV industry.”  I replied back saying, “No, I’m the Mark Polk of the RV industry.” That conversation got me to thinking about the only thing we haven’t done is start a RV DIY channel for all the do-it-yourselfers out there. Between our RV101.tv site and our RV Education 101 You Tube channel we have over 400 in-house produced RV how-to and RV product videos posted, with more than 4,600,000 video views.  But we did not really concentrate on the DIY perspective.  So here it is, our RV DIY channel. Our goal with this project is to help other RV owners and RV enthusiasts tackle some RV projects, that without a little help they might otherwise have thought they couldn’t do. Of course if you are not comfortable doing some of these DIY projects yourself you should take it to a qualified RV service facility to have the work done.

Keystone RV loaned us a Keystone Passport travel trailer to use in some of these video productions. Jim Mac, Keystone RV Company communications director said “With more and more first time buyers entering the lifestyle, we felt there was a need for good educational materials on how to use and enjoy your RV. Mark’s series is a great step in filling these needs.”

I hope you enjoy the RV DIY Channel,

Happy RV Learning!
