As most of you have experienced RVs seem to break at the worst times.
With so many RVs here and them having sat for a few months - undetected problems have shown themselves as the rigs are preparing to travel.
We have always been eager to help in anyway we can when the need arises.
I have found all of the experiences and lessons learned with our own motorhome to have come in very handy the last couple of days.
I have had the opportunity to work on and resolve problems ranging from electrical and hydraulic failures to engine issues.
It has been very rewarding helping to get people on the road and to see them not have to spend their much needed money to resolve an issue that has thrown their being with family and friends for the holidays as well as getting to their wintering locations in jeopardy.
Most issues have been fairly easy to resolve - the difficult part is diagnosing the cause of the problem.
I actually enjoy the challenge.
Not surprising - problems have happened on the older and the new RVs. Seems trouble has no respect for age.
It does surprise me some though that RV system design has not really changed much over the last 20 years.
The same concepts just newer components.
So far it has been mission accomplished on all RVs and nobody is still here that doesn't want to be.
There is a sense of satisfaction seeing those taillights going down the road!
Being able to help out sure feels good.
We want to wish everyone a safe, peaceful, and joyous holiday from our family to yours!
