China Bombs, Leaks, Stinks, and other negativity

There is a lopsidedness here, it sure seems. I wonder if it's because the forum is basically social media, and it's awfully popular these days to grumble anonymously. I fully understand folks trying to find answers and learn some stuff. But why do so few take a moment to post something positive? I suspect that a decent chunk of the negatives are due to user error or lack of understanding. New guy comes along and whines about his junk RV, gets piled on, and maybe one or two positive suggestions then they vanish.

All good I guess. But, my life is to precious to spend it reading grumbling about nonsense.

If you learn something, take a minute to say thanks. If your RV is crap, dump it and get a good one.

Don't loose faith brother. I'm on my second RV and I have had small issues that were really of no consequence. Some have had real issues but I suspect that we will never find out the numbers of good vs bad. These forums are a resource for information. It is a tool and use it for such. I have communicated with many members here and have developed relationships with some wise folks. You are going to have to take the good with the bad. I have had two FR products now.

Guess I'm lucky. I am on my third unit with very little problems. A feller needs to learn some basic skills as they are not that complicated. I did my entire 12,500 mile Alaska trip with a basic tool kit and really no problems.
I have progressed from a Pup to a 24ft bumper pull to a lite 5th wheel learning as I go.

Human nature is to speak out (post) if something bothers you but remain silent when all is going well.

We could all use a little more positive in today's world.
