Availability of 2014 Edition of RVIA RV Handbook – a Guide to the NFPA 1192

This bulletin serves to notify you that the 2014 edition of the RVIA RV Handbook – a Guide to the NFPA 1192 is now available for ordering. This Handbook outlines the uniform enforcement positions based on the 2015 editions of NFPA 1192, and the 2014 editions of NEC 70 and ANSI LV. It is used by the RVIA Inspection Staff during RV-OEM member inspections. The three RV code State Agencies (NE, OR, and WA) also agreed to these handbook enforcement positions.

The Standards Steering Committee has taken the position that as a requirement of membership, each RV manufacturer must have at least one copy of every standard adopted by the Board of Directors and the “Guide to NFPA 1192: A Handbook,” latest editions, present at every production campus* operated by that manufacturer. RVIA inspection staff verifies that the manufacturer has, at every production campus, the latest edition of the adopted standards and the “Guide to NFPA 1192; A Handbook.” 

Please also note that the RVIA’s Board of Directors has established an “Effective” date of May 1, 2014 for in-field use of the 2014 editions of the standards along with this Handbook and a mandatory “Enforcement” date of September 1, 2014. RVIA will use and promote these standards during the transition period between May to September and will provide in-field training regarding the new or revised requirements.
