About Your Teacher
Ed Wilcox is a certified RV Tech who has lived full-time in a RV. As he traveled and talked to other campers, he learned that people were having issues with their camper and had no idea where to start to maintain their investment.
Knowing not everyone has a mechanical background, he and the team at The Virtual Campground, set out to create a course that teaches people how to properly maintain the systems in their RV and fix common issues.
Ed teaches in a way that is engaging and approachable so anyone can learn more about their rigs and have the confidence to take care of it themselves.
