Class A owners-the smartest people around

Who else can figure out how to:
-Use Diesel(AquaHot), LPG, Electricity for Heat
-Use Diesel(Genny), Solar, Battery/Inverter, Shore (20/30/50A) for Power
-Cable, OTA and Satellite for Television
-Cram thousands of pounds of "STUFF" just to go "Camping"
-Bring along a second vehicle (TOAD, Golfcart, Motorcycle)

Sometimes I forget how smart we actually are

Well Said!!

And.....with the collective creative experience of other folks like those on these forums, those of us who had no prior electrical, mechanical, and fluid dynamics experience can actually figure out how to do our some of the repairs and maintenance steps ourselves

Some times we can actually effect the repair immediately and continue on our travel endeavors.

The new knowledge also allows us avoid the high labor costs, round trip time to deliver the rig to the repair shop, and the frustration of wait/storage time in the shop yard.

Spending it on RVing is good, spending it on the continuous repairs is the pits.

Not sure we are the smartest people, but dang don't we have fun!

I feel smarter already, and every time I do something stupid, I am going to read all this again.

Very well said.

I often times take this knowledge for granted... until someone begins to ask questions about all of that stuff being complex. Then I flash back on how hard it would be to train someone just on the basics of working all of the systems and realize that I almost wouldn't know where to begin.

Great post Playtime III (and comments too)
I think one more thing we forgot, as we're all reading this and commenting via Internet!
-using Wifi, Cell Carriers, Hotspots, and/or all 3 for Internet access
