Those who have never been DIYers would be surprised to find that they can fix most things themselves for a lot less money and aggravation by using resources like this forum and some of the thousands of YouTube repair videos. An added benefit is that they will rapidly learn how things work which is invaluable in the RV world.
My DH and I are ones that have been learning as we go. Yes forums and YouTube are invaluable resources but you have to be willing to learn and accept that you don't know things first. Once you move past that, you can learn things... We just figured out how to build our own fence at home, cost $500 in supplies as opposed to over $1000 to do. Same goes for the RV, just try it. I can't get past how many pay someone to winterize/dewinterize their RV.

Ah yes the dumbing down of society. A co worker has a theory that we as a society have peaked and we are down on the downside. I don't expect everyone to know about towing and GCVW and wdh etc but common sense no longer prevails.

Yep, it's like folks bringing in their computer problems. A lot of them had the dreaded 'ID10T' error😉

I've told my youngest son (age 28) that when my dad did something around the house, he EXPECTED me to be there to help/learn. Can't get my son from out of in front of the computer. He'll be paying someone to replace his flapper one day.
