We thought the water heater in our brand new motorhome was totally dead. But there was absolutely NOTHING wrong with it! We simply made a mistake in using our RV's water system. Don't make the same mistake we did!

On April 11, 2014, we marked 11 years of full-time RVing. After all this time, we've learned an awful lot about how live in an RV and manage its systems. But that doesn't mean we haven't made mistakes.

As we look back on all the miles we've traveled and places we've been, we remembered one of our very first newbie mistakes. We want to share it here, in the hopes that we can save someone else from going through the same thing.

Full-Time RVers since April 11, 2003, we share DIY (do it yourself) RV maintenance, repair, travel, upgrade and operational tips & tricks.

While we're not RV technicians, we're very mechanically inclined and have learned a lot about RV systems over the years. We've handled most of our own minor service, maintenance and upgrade work on both of our RVs.

We meet lots of newer RVers who are eager to learn some basics about using, maintaining and caring for their rigs. After more than a decade on the road, we're happy to share what we've learned (some of it the hard way). ;-) We hope our experience can help other RVers go DIY, saving time & money while experiencing the satisfaction of a job well done. We're handy RVers, not professional technicians. We're happy with the techniques and products we use, but be sure to confirm that all methods and materials you use are compatible with your equipment and abilities. Regardless of what we recommend, consult a professional if you're unsure about working on your RV. Any task you perform or product you purchase based on any information we provide is strictly at your own risk.

We sometimes receive products for evaluation at no cost, but our opinions are our own and we only feature products we personally use, love and can recommend to friends with complete confidence.
