RCI has two sides. There is a Points side and a Weeks side. If you have an account with RCI you haven't used, it's likely a Weeks account (if you had a Points account you'd probably know about it.) When you deposit a week with RCI, you are granted a certain amount of Trade Power Units (TPU) for what you deposited. It varies, based on resorts, locations, which week, and so forth. In this case, today, it's 32 TPU. The clock is ticking, so the longer you wait, the lower amount of TPU you'll receive, if you choose to go that way.
You then can view RCI's inventory of available weeks, or open an Ongoing Search (OGS) to find a specific week you want to exchange for. They will be offered for certain TPU values. You "spend" your TPU on the exchange(s) you want. The amount of TPU required to get the exchange varies, depending on where and when you want to go. If your needs are reasonable, you could likely turn that 32 TPU into two or even three weeks of exchanges. They wouldn't be in Hawaii, (those tend to go for higher TPU numbers), but a reasonable vacation on the Mainland, or just about anything in Mexico, is doable. You won't likely get a Disney vacation out of it, because they tend to go for more TPU. But as I say, a reasonable vacation can be done for 32 TPU or less. RCI gives you two years to use the TPU before they expire. It's not a perfect science, and it can be a pain in the rear to get what you want. But if you're focused and know what you'd like, you can probably make it work for you.
You do need to have an account with RCI to exchange with them. And that comes with a fee. You'd do well to go to RCI.com and see what they offer. After you're set up, your resort can assist you with how to deposit your week.
You may also want to see if one of the other exchange companies will take your week. Hawaii Timeshare Exchange (htse.net) is one option to look at, as is the San Francisco Exchange (sfxresorts.com) Both are honest companies to work with, that may give you a better experience than RCI.
Do your due diligence and research. There is a lot to learn about exchanging. Tug has forums about all of it.
