One of the fun things about visiting RV shows, like the Super B RV Show in Glendale, Arizona that Mike and I recently attended, is visiting with other RVers who share their tips and suggestions.
That’s exactly what happened with one of our listeners named Jim, who came out to meet us and offered a tip about using mobile RV repair services – and how to find them – when local RV service centers can’t squeeze you in for an appointment.
Jim said his RV had a water faucet that started leaking all over the place, and while RVing. They would’ve had to have waited a day or so to get into to the closest service center so they bought a faucet and got back on the road.
Later that night, while checking in at an RV resort, Jim noticed business cards for handymen willing to service RVs on site. He picked one up and made the call.
Jim said it turned out the handyman had previously worked in an RV service center and went out on his own to start his own business.
“It was just fantastic,” Jim said. “The guy came out to our site…and just replaced the faucet. He had all the tools and it was all done and fine and we’ve never had a problem with it since.”
And it’s worth adding extra emphasis on part of Jim’s comment – specifically, the part about the handyman having all of the tools many of us might not have with us when on the road.
