I did as you said and was hoping "Electroboom" would come up, but it was just serious beginner stuff.

Check him out for what not to do, hilarious.



He does a good job of beeping out bad words...

Happy Easter!

That is a really funny video...especially when he sets his pants on fire from the melted hot glue. Yeah, right...melting glue.

Based on the volume of posts over the last 45 days, it seems an advanced degree in epidemiology is also required . . . (BTW, didn't realize so many of our follow RVer's had one!! )

You will also need credit card, checkbook, cash the outlay doesn't stop when you leave the dealers lot.

Whatever you think you can afford for the RV, set aside another $6,000 for all the 'stuff' you will need! (yes, i kept a log of all the purchases and added it up. Shocking. Trailer: almost 20k out the door. Stuff: 6k)
