NO- this isn't a "people of Walmart kind of thread".
Before I RV'd, my father-in-law literally took care of anything mechanical in my house and cars and- well, anything else there might be. When we got the campers, I realized, we would be out and about without him and there would be times that he couldn't come swoop in to my rescue. I had to learn to be a little more self-sufficient.
So far I've dealt with failures of the lock assembly on our pop-up, binding my JT's when I retracted my landing gear without loosening them and have even dealt with a water leak in the camper here at home. Heck, many of y'all remember the drama that was me changing camper tires.
I was reminded of the random good that has come from me RVing yesterday when I was able to deal with a simple low tire pressure indicator on my wife's car. Sounds dumb- but this is something that I previously wouldn't have been able to do (not being sure of myself nor having the equipment to do it).
What has RVing meant for you?
