I was just using those numbers as hypotheticals.

Actually, I'm trying to avoid troublemakers like you, GaryKD, and Mike and Cha that give me excellent advice that makes it harder to drill down. Just joking.

I did, today, put one option to bed. I confirmed that a Tiffin Breeze 32 was gonna be a wee bit too tight inside the bedroom, despite my wife and I not being tag axle sized, and a bit challenged as to my storage needs...despite my most creative efforts to lighten my minimal load. Actually, yes, that was fairly easy, but I still needed to challenge my assumptions. So you could say, I will be avoiding at least one or two trade-ins.

I did stop at a well thought of dealership and was happy to know that the service manager was willing to consider my part time tech/electrical specialist application for the busy season when I get my credentials..probably by March. He mentioned that the electrical side is the problem for many of the techs. That put a smile on my face. He needs two full-time guys, so imagine what the other dealers need! Also, the gal at the Tiffin dealer mentioned that the mobile techs are in high demand. Nice.

Also, the guy Darin down the street who has his own auto shop gets calls to help Rvers and mentioned it is the electrical side he can't do.

Gee, I might have to buy an RV just to escape from myself.

Excuse me while I go lift some weights.

Finished my Reg Tech course work and individual course testing. The sales manager at my local Newmar dealer said he would talk to his service manager to see if they can help me complete my practicals so I can take my final exam. I offered to pay for their time, so should hear back soon.

Amazing how much I have learned. Found some good internet articles and some great RV repair books. In particular I like the Livingston book because of the clear demonstration pictures.

Next steps: electrical specialist, then RV inspector cert.
