RV Questions for Blog

As some of you may know, I work for a RV dealership. I'm wanting to start a blog on our website and I need your help! My goal is to help answer common questions (and not so common) that people have about RVing.

These questions could be about lifestyle, mechanical, sales, or anything!

I'd like to ask you guys what questions you would ask? I need to come up with a big list of questions so I can answer them in blog form.

I look forward to your responses.

Thanks in advance for your time and input!

I think the basis "RV101" and "How To" types of questions are paramount and, in fact what I've tried tackling in my blog:
Learn To RV
  • What Can I Tow?
  • How do I hitch up - fifth wheels and bumper pulls?
  • How do I adjust a WDH hitch?
  • I have a short bed and want to tow a fifth wheel... what now? (aka- How do sliders work? Or the Reese Revolution?
  • How do I level my camper?
  • Steps to setting up at a campsite
  • How do I winterize?
  • How do I de-winterize?
  • How do I dump tanks?
  • Common mods...

(Sigh, this sounds rude but isn't meant to be..) The list is easy to come up with *if* you're a RV'er yourself. Just think of the things that you needed to learn to get where you are. If you have friends who are just getting into RV'ing, think of the things you need to tell them as they get started (my sister and my in-laws are my examples more often than not).

@ependydad Lol, actually, I'm not an RVer...that's why I need the "experts" input. I'm the "Internet Guy" at the RV dealership, so while I know a basic knowledge of them, I don't know them at intimately as people on this forum would.

Thanks for your input!

And, I might suggest you talk to your customers. Find out the tips of things that matter to them.

You get input plus you get bonus points for listening and responding.

Otherwise, you could partner with a blogger- link to their blog and just point people in that direction. If you do that, you could likely ask the blogger to blog about specific things (i.e. the things your customers want to know).

discuss routine maintenance that is required for the different types of units and the products that are available to help- great way to reference back to products in the shop store.

Yeah, I have done some partnering with some bloggers in the past with different subjects. I will probably be looking to get people to write on these topics for me. Hopefully people who are more knowledgeable than me!

There are actually two things I want to accomplish.

1. Provide knowledgeable and useful information to my visitors.
2. Improve my SEO rankings (part of my job)

Thanks for all the input! I'll accept any question, no matter how unusual or weird it might be.

Anyway, sounds like good stuff.
