RV QA issues

I shouldn’t bring it up due to jinxing myself but I read posts, all sorts of issues, breakdowns, malfunctions & it amazes me in 40 yrs of owning every kind of RV style I’ve never had a single issue, not one. I’m a manual reader & do all prescribed maintenance always. I inspect the unit after & before every trip & keep the RV at home so I’m in it 4-5 times a week just hanging out. I do research vs asking people because I want facts, not anecdotes; maybe those factors have something to do with my good fortune, but it’s uncanny how I’ve been able to navigate RV ownership without issues. I keep wondering when the other shoe will fall. Now that I brought it up its possible the RV gods will take note…

You rarely hear of the good news or those that have no or few issues.

Instead you hear from those that have issues, needing help or those who are upset and want to vent.

We are in the having very few issues for the past 35 year group.

When you watch the news the bad news stories far out weigh the good.

Yep.. rarely do you hear good news.

And... what is no big deal to some, is a major catastrophe to others so little problems for those folks become a HUGE PITA for them.

We too have been fortunate over nearly 50 years of owning a R/V of some sort that we've had no big issues. But... being in the automotive service/manufacturing industry most my life, fixing things is a daily activity for me. It simply carries over.
