RV Supplier Dicor Ups Consumer Video Output

May 7, 2013 by · Comments Off on RV Supplier Dicor Ups Consumer Video Output 

Dicor Corp. has announced that it will continue to build on what has become a popular series of RV “ instructional” videos focused on various aspects of RV care and improvement.

According to a news release, upcoming videos are expected to spotlight such topics as:

  • Coating systems for rubber, fiberglass and metal roofs.
  • How to properly seal the installation of a new skylight as well as a roof vent, plumbing vent, refrigerator vent or TV antenna.
  • How to properly seal trim strips.
  • How to measure for new shades and blinds.

“We just believe that getting more information out to the RV consumer is helpful in improving their RV experience,” said Dave Majewski, vice president of aftermarket sales. “And improving the RV experience is what we all should be doing as an industry.”

The current video series introduced by Dicor’s Rudy character has gone over well because it presents “the kind of clear and easy-to-digest information about maintaining and improving RVs that a lot of people are looking for,” said Majewski.

Dicor is the leading supplier of roofing material for the industry and best known in the aftermarket for its high-quality lap sealants and stainless steel wheel covers and simulators. In recent years it has stepped up the pace of innovative offerings to RV manufacturers and expanded its presence in the RV aftermarket through new products and its series of roof care videos. Dicor is also one of the leading sponsors of the upcoming RVB Power Breakfast

“These videos help give the RV consumer a direct connection to the OEM level of expertise available in the industry, which RVers really appreciate,” said Majewski. “RV manufacturers and suppliers know the ‘best practices’ for doing these things, so why shouldn’t we share them? Among other things, it really strengthens our bond with the RV consumer.”

“You build connections by being helpful, and that’s what Dicor does — help our customers with what they need, whether they are manufacturers or consumers.”

Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) members celebrated Dicor Corp.’s Gregg Fore for his service as the association’s chairman from 2010–2012 at the Chairman’s Dinner and Gala that took place on March 5 at RVIA’s Annual Meeting in Orlando, Fla.

RVIA Chairman Doug Gaeddert said that Fore led the association in a precarious time as it navigated a sometimes rocky road toward recovery from the Great Recession, according to a press release. “Gregg’s calm and steady leadership guided us through some challenging times and positioned the industry for sustainable growth and prosperity,” he said.

Gaeddert also detailed key accomplishments under Fore’s leadership This included enhancing industry education and certification with the introduction of the RV service technician career ladder; the launch of Go RVing’s “AWAY” campaign – the industry’s first all new campaign since 2005; a focus on capitalizing on the growing global RV market; and a renewed focus on uniting industry allies.

“Under Gregg’s leadership, we’ve strengthened our relationship with dealer partners, moved toward a more uniform North American RV market with the creation of the Canadian Coalition Committee, and healed old wounds to welcome recreation park trailer manufacturers back into RVIA,” said Gaeddert. “These developments have increased unity, making our industry stronger, more efficient and more consumer-focused.”

Gaeddert invited past RVIA Chairs Norm Jacobson, Mel Adams and Jim Sheldon to join him in presenting Fore with several gifts in recognition of his service, including the Chairman’s Award plaque, an RVIA chairman’s ring and the gavel he used during his time in office. Fore’s wife Nancy was also recognized for her support and presented a crystal vase. On behalf of the RVIA staff, RVIA President Richard Coon gave Fore a scrapbook commemorating his term as chairman that included photos, press clippings, and letters of congratulations from association colleagues.

“It was an honor and pleasure to serve as RVIA chairman. The experience was rewarding and meaningful to me in many ways,” said Fore. “I want to thank our members for their support of the association, the many volunteers who serve on committees and the Board for their hard work on so many issues, and the association staff for their efforts conducted on our behalf. It was pleasure working with all of you.”
