if MH folks won't even try to work on their RVs then they're hardly likely to fill the forum(s) either.
I find the whole 'not mechanically savvy' or 'too rich' somewhat insulting.
we're help to help each other not thumb our noses..

You know WAY different people than I know. Most of the people I know that have coaches enjoy working on them unless it is too technical for them. For instance, I'm a carpenter by trade and feel comfortable with fixing any of the coach issues, however, when it comes to chassis, I'm a "Bleeder" and don't get any enjoyment out of getting blood all over anything. Same for electrical. If its a simple thing, I'll tackle it. If it gets beyond my abilities, I know when to take it to a shop. I know my limits and don't enjoy paying for anything I can do myself.

Having a motor home requires a willingness to be a home handyman/mechanic. You learn by trial and error, or Irv2. If you have a travel trailer, or 5 vr, it's not much different than S&B. I still think it requires some handyman expertise, but how many homeowners just pay someone to do any repairs or maintenance?

MH usually has more things to tend to, hence the larger participating membership. The folks fortunate enough to trade every three years or so, get to talk about where they stay, and places they've visited. (Lol)

Most motor homes have complex systems a little more sophisticated than cranking the top up on your pop up camper. Tongue in cheek,don't have a cow. When I pulled a trailer I didn't have BIRDs, Auto levelers, Air suspension,Air brakes, Heat pumps, & computerized everything that can cost thousands if you cross the wrong wires.

That's not true. If I posted "how do I do..." all the mods I have done on my MH, I would have worn out my keyboard.

There are many things that can go wrong with a trailer, All the house systems, Water, electrical, Sewer and of course leaks when it rains, A/C and more.

But there is very little that can go wrong with the frame and absolutly nothing with the drive train since there is not one.

On a motor home you also have Engine, Steering, Suspension, Frame, Transmission and drive train, and more.

So yes, most of the questions are motor home rather than trailer.. Actually most (All the "HOUSE" type questions) apply to both Motor home and trailers. Only engine/transmission/and aiming questions apply to MH exclusively.

You have to realize some of the forums were not on irv2 when it started so results maybe misleading.
