Actually I think listing what you have helps when asking for help with a problem or when making a suggestion to someone. By looking at the list of what we have others will know what model etc. that we have and will better be able to help solve a problem or know what we are talking about.

When you get a response from two different people and one of them has the same equipment and gone thru the same thing it might help you to know that. Also you can try to pm them for more details.

Do you mean their signatures or when posting to a thread?

Mostly because if you ask for help we need to know that stuff.. For example if you have electrical problems I may need (depending on the problem) to know the make and model of your converter to help you.. Plumbing problems,, The water pump and the kitchen sink come into play. Radio not working right.. Helps to know the make, And so on and so forth. Putting it in the sig file means the info is always there.

Impress is spelled with an I not an E.

Well, they might not want to impress you, and you might not care, but what is wrong with it?
If you don't want to read it, don't! Nobody forces you to read the lists. However, it seems that some fellow writers here feel that a list like that is helpful for problem solving.

So, why not have it?

I don't think anyone is going to be able to help you understand, as you just won't get it. Lol

Thanks for your service. We all are lucky that you stayed the course. I also like reading the different types of equipment that everyone has listed, just in case I need to help out or need info.

In addition to seeing what people currently RV in, I think it's for fun and to help put a little less anonymity in the somewhat anonymous world of online posting.

Understood?

When I first viewed this site I was new to RV and had lots of questions. Several replies requested more info from me (I didn't know there were different makes/systems in RV's I thought a water pump was a water pump....when I become emperor I plan to standardize this).

I noticed others put all that info in their sig block and thought what a clever idea. I never thought it was snotty of others, they have what they have I have what I have no judgement necessary. Vet, hope you are not concerned that someone may be bragging? How would that concern someone that stood the line to protect their rights to brag. Thanks for serving!
