My pet peeve is the saying "This happens on all of them". No the one's built correctly.

Imagine owning a business and having to put up with reviews today. I read one on the best drive shaft guy in the North Texas area. His complaint wasnít about the work they did on his drive shaft but that his shop wasnít clean enough.

What is the pop-up power post? I can't tell from the video what it's supposed to do. Does it have 120V outlets on it somewhere, or what?

Mine has 3-4 120V outlets and a couple USBs.

If I remember correctly, didn't the video maker make fun of people who made YouTubes to make money and were annoying to others nearly in the beginning?

Why do so many RV Youtube video makers think you want to watch a video of them talking while pointing the camera up their own nose?

Don't they realize that viewers want to see the same things they're looking at?

I solved the screen door slide dance after I discovered I can simply push in the catch with my finger from the frame side. I never move my screen slide anymore - seems with a simple part modification of the catch/striker you could make that a "feature" and eliminate the slide completely.

I think the vast majority of people on forums are way smarter than the occasional forum know it all, Youtube video maker, google answerer....

True many don't have the knowledge or experience...but just a bit more research that a couple videos, forum answers or other sources in today's internet that's rich in errors.... will point most people in the right direction.
