I've learned a lot in a short amount of time from people who have been at this a long time and are willing to share their knowledge. I'm still learning and am suprised at the scope of peoples experiences. And its great entertainment from people I'd love to sit around a fire at a CG and talk with.

As others have said,, I learn So much here,,, heck I never knew why you wanted to level a rv, I just figured it was so you didn't have to walk like in a Fun House... Now I know you can ruin a $1000++ frig... (who would have figured those things cost so much?) Putting a load on the genny,,, I knew basic engine stuff to run it,,, just an amazing amount of things to be learned from the mostly great people here... There has been a couple times I had to tie my hands behind my back to keep from responding negatively to a negative post,,,some aimed at me, but I feel good for it.. That's life in general... All in all, this is a great site !

My favorite place on the internet is in the RV Forums - I am active in three or four. I have learned where to go, where to boondock, how to fix everything that I have managed to break and which routes to avoid and which to seek out.

Everytime DW asks me how I know something, I tell her IRV2.com or RV.net and she knows I am getting good information sometimes mixed in with opinion and winnowed through the alternatives that are offered by others.

I enjoy being able to share my own knowledge and experience with others who are facing things we have dealt with, routes we have taken and many other questions.

Started here as a learning tool in order not to mess up something that someone else had found an easy and correct way to do. .

Have evolved to the stage of maybe helping others with some of the stuff I have learned here and through my own experience.

I used part of my inheiritance to buy my MH, but had only spent 1 night in one that my folks bought back in the 1980ís. Without this group I would have destroyed half of mine by now. Luckily I found irv2 before I picked up my RV and knew about leveling and surge protectors and...

I give thanks every day for the kind, patient and humerous folks here. I may be a solo traveler, but y'all make it so I never travel alone.

BTW -- Spelling and grammer are things I worried about when my life was more stressful. Now that I'm retired, I could care less. It's the message that is important, not the box it comes in.

I've learned more from the suttle, usually 1 time only, less expensive postings/responses then from the "opinions" and those that want you to spend a lot fixers. It doesn't happen often but over the last 3 years I've picked up many many factual fixes. ie: adding caster not the spring and shock steering centering systems. My cost $0.

I have gained an education about my RV and more importantly some very good new friends! The RV world has all types just as any where else but here we all have a common bond- learning and enjoying our version of camping! Hope to see you all soon - Cliff & Tallulah, Mike, Les, Roger and even Dunner!

It's a DIYer's paradise. I've found answers to questions I didn't know I needed to ask. Saved me a bunch a bucks.

The hours I have spent on this site have saved more money (probably) then I would have earned had I been owrking instead of reading when I encountered a few problems. It is also a great source of cheap entertainment, it really is a most awesome site, probably the kindest, least obnoxious group of people/posters I have ever encountered!

I like the diversity of the people on here and the vast knowledge base. Also the willingness to share knowledge.

I have had three m/h....2 C's and one A. I have learned a great many things here....as most of us. I am shopping for a DP and have found several who have the unit I am most interesed in...Thor Palazzo 33.1. I read these posts every day as I do my emails....just good information... my thanks to all...newbies ask questions and I think "hey I know that answer." Then I find out I did not really know all of it...ha ha

Hey, if you have not posted your make and model of m/h in your signature, please do so...it helps you to get the correct answers.
