    Late one Sunday evening, I received a frantic call from a family camping in the hills about 2 hours from my home. They were packing up to return to the city when they discovered their slide would not go back in. They were stuck! They told me they had tried EVERYTHING and asked if I would please come to help them. When I arrived at the unit, it didn’t take long to find a blown fuse. (I guess they hadn’t checked everything). I changed the fuse, the slide was retracted and they were on their way. The unfortunate part was that my bill to them was $224.70 (and I even cut my travel charge in half because I felt bad for them!) You see? For the sake of a 10 cent fuse and a little knowledge, they could have solved their problem themselves...
    (and I wouldn’t have missed my Sunday supper!)

    Another time, an experienced full-time RVer called me because his hot water heater wasn’t working. Again, I drove for over an hour only to find that the water heater bypass valve was in the wrong position. A simple turn of one valve and he had hot water, but it cost him $167.47 for the lesson.

    A lady called me one day and said that she didn’t have any A/C power on one side of her motorhome. Most RVs have a device called a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupt). I’m sure you’ve seen them in your bathroom or kitchen at home. They have a reset and a test button on them. Well, it’s not uncommon to find that the one in your RV might control up to 3 or 4 outlets, as hers did. A simple push of the reset button and her Motorhome leapt back to life...
    at a cost of $133.79

    I could go on and on with more examples, but I'm sure you see my point. For over 30 years now I've seen people making the same mistakes
    that cost them nothing but time and money, not to mention panic, frustration, and inconvenience!
