I have 2 in the camper alone (the HF free one one inside in the "tool drawer" and the big one in the tool caddy). I use them so often I would not roll the camper without them.

Agreed no roll fly zone without meters.

We departed AR 2/27 in route for FL and because we decided to leave 3 days earlier things got crazy and the DVOM is still on the workbench. So had to buy one at Wally World. We used the Simpson in the AF but when the Flukes came out that's all I ever bought for the HS auto shop. Actually to demonstrate how tuff the Fluke 73 was I would finish my demo then toss it on the floor a few times and in 25 years of tossing and hard use it never broke. If you dropped an analog once it's probably done. Also the analog was difficult to get down to the 1/10 of a volt.

I use one alot during the day it's a fluke 87 And keep one in the tool box in the FW for emergency's its a inexpensive digital purchased from Sears. Good tool to have with you away on trips. I carry a basic set of tools in the camper for trips never know what may happen little things come up.

I own two Flukes, a 23 from my days in the HVAC industry that is older that I care to remember. And a Fluke 85-3 from my time working on industrial robots and CNC machines. Like my American Express, I never leave home without one.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

They are identical 7 Function Multimeter. I would never have thought Amazon would sell the identical one.
