Determine if there is a need for this service in your area This unique absorption refrigerator repair service has been overlooked  by the refrigeration industry for decades all around the world. Absorption refrigerators work off of AC, DC, LP gas and other fuels. It is a refrigeration unit found in Recreational Vehicles, motor homes, coaches, trailers, 5th wheels, campers, pop-up campers, horse trailers, off the grid, caravans, camper vans, mobile leisure trailers, pull trailers, motels, apartments, hotels,  Amish communities and more. There are three major brands in the USA which are Dometic RV refrigerator, Norcold RV refrigerator, and Atwood RV refrigerator. A used absorption refrigerator can be successfully reconditioned for a fraction of the cost of a new refrigerator and will last even longer. In our many years in this field, it has been our experience that no matter what make or model of RV absorption refrigerator, they all basically work the same and require the same repairs. To determine if there is a need in your area, find out how many RV dealerships, service centers, campgrounds, resorts, off the grid, and Amish communities there are in your area. These all use this type of refrigeration and will eventually need serviced. "If nobody builds another new RV again, starting today, there are still about 10 million of them on the road, and those units need to be serviced", RV Pro magazine 2/2009. However, with approximately 10 thousand baby boomers retiring daily...check this out: "New RV shipments in 2014 are expected to total more than 335,000 units". http://www.rvia.org/?ESID=indicators
Purchase the Ford's Procedure Manual The Ford's Procedure Manual is a step-by-step instructional on reconditioning RV refrigerator cooling units. The cooling unit is the system that houses the chemicals that creates the cooling and is the major part of the RV refrigerator. This is what other technicians do not know how to properly troubleshoot and successfully repair. Our landfills are full of them and this has cost the consumer millions of ill spent dollars. The Ford Procedures comes in hard copy as well as digital. Those who attend our hands-on training will need the hard copy for classroom. Those taking the online training can use either the hard copy or the digital.
Purchase the Customized Tools These tools have been developed by Roger Ford and are distributed by Ford's RV Training Center. They are used to recharge the cooling unit system. You must call our office to purchase the customized tools - Contact Us
Obtain Your Training In our Hands On Training or our Online Training, we teach you everything you need to know to get started in becoming a successful RV Refrigerator Reconditioning Specialist. We don't stop there though, check out both training pages to see all the benefits we provide. FRVRTC provides hands-on training the first Monday through Friday of every month. Maximum four students per class so call as soon as possible to schedule your training date.

 Perhaps there is an RVRN member in your area. This is someone who has been Certified through our hands on training course. The RV Referral Network (RVRN) was designed to connect RV owners with RV Refrigerator Reconditioning Specialists who offer the exact same service we offer. They will save you money and give you the best warranty. You and they together, will be reducing our carbon footprint. Also, the HVAC and Appliance industries are taking an interest in this service.

The difference between an RVRN service center and other service centers is:

Other service centers say throw it away! = Primitive, expensive and bad for our environment

An RVRN Service Center says we can fix that!  = Innovative, economical and good for our environment
