Sorry, not going west, but northwest.

But PM me, I might still be able to walk you through it.

Have not needed IT help, nor heard of many folks that have in past several years.. Seems these current OS do much better then pre-XP OS. If getting customers on the road was my basic income source, I'd quit before I got to far from home. jus sayn

We don't "need" an income source, but figured it never hurts to make a little along the way.

From the couple of months I have run a once a week computer clinic at our RV park, I have gotten the impression that most of my "customers" had a particular problem they wanted to resolve rather than needing to have their computers "fixed." In most cases their "problem" wasn't a problem at all, but, rather, a symptom that resulted from their limited understanding of their computers.

To put it another way, most of the people I dealt with had exceedingly limited computer skills. Quite a few literally operated using "instruction lists" provided by their adult children and grandchildren. I gave a number of "how to...." presentations but only a few attendees seemed interested enough to try the things I was demonstrating.

I'm not being condescending but, rather, am reporting what I observed. During the couple of months I've been acting as the park's "go to guy" for computer issues, I've resolved dozens of "issues" but there hasn't been one yet that involved a computer that actually needed a "repair" or even remediation. The worst problem I recall was an iPad app that wouldn't open and which had to be erased and reloaded!

In general, I think therre are better ways to establish a reputation than getting known in one specific RV park (not that it would hurt). Having an internet presence & several well-known RV bloggers endorse your work would likely go a long way to being trusted.

As we see from some of the responses in this thread, there are lots of people with issues surrounding their electronics that could use some help. There are also places other than RV parks where large numbers of RVs congregate annually - both organized gatherings & unofficial southern winter over-wintering locations...
