As the name states this is the iRV2 TRAVEL TRAILER, 5TH WHEEL & TRUCK CAMPER FORUM....(both cheap and otherwise).
However motor home owners do sometimes reply, (often with excellent answers and advice).

We are ALL RV enthusiasts here. Some of us just happen to own 5th Wheels. Others of us do not.

Having said that, it appears to me that a certain number of MH owners may not have as much mechanical aptitude, or interest in obtaining and using the necessary skills, as the owners of towed vehicles. Again, let me stress, that this is not meant as an insult. I do feel that many towed vehicle owners take great pride in doing virtually all of the repairs, maintenance and upgrades to their units themselves and have taken the time to learn the necessary skills to accomplish their goals. This attitude seems less prevalent among a certain segment of MH owners. It is possible that some people don't want to invest their time in working on a unit and would rather spend their time traveling or recreating and that is not only a good thing it is outstanding that they have the means to do that.

As for me, with my small cheap trailer, a good portion of the fun of owning it is doing the mods and maintenance myself. That may not be as important to some MH owners.
I've been wrong before and probably will be again.

I've been RV'ing since 1957 when my parents rented a 17' TT, didn't even have a toilet, just a pull out with a hole cut in it and a plastic bag hanging from the frame. No refer, just an icebox. Then they special ordered an '58 18' KenCraft TT that was so heavy they blew out tires on almost every trip. In 1967 I got my first TT and have had TT's up till 1988 when we got our first MH, a 17' Type B. Over those years I have gained a bit of knowledge of RV's and my work allows me time to share.
No, I won't be able to help with the location of a component in another rig, but at least I might be able to help with it's operation.

Mel... I was pondering this thread and saw your post and I concluded that the reason I scan or read many threads in many categories is that I read things that interest me. Could easily be something I don't personally own, never owned, have no desire to own, or vowed never to own. Just interested. But what happens is, you see people posting routinely and whether you've engaged them or not, you get to know where they're coming from. Ya may even find a friend or two. So ya join in. So there ya go then...
-----

There are other threads similar to this. Where was my brand x last year? The Convection Oven in my 123... My Model Name house water pump. All neatly tucked away where the XYZ, 123, Model Name discussions belong.

I'm glad there's some crossover. The more people sharing the better. Makes the thread longer and we don't have to fix whatever it is now because we don't have the answer yet. Waiting on one of those 3 guys to lend a hand. That is why we're here isn't it?

I really don't give it much thought ... I typically scan by topic. If the rooftop A/C has died I don't care what platform it is mounted on ... I read the thread ... etc. etc.
