Your First RV Should Be Used

One of my coworkers is a blabbermouth and thinks he knows everything. He keeps telling me, anyone else who would listen and some that don’t if you’re getting an RV, your first one should be used.

He rarely if ever follows up with answers like “why?”

I thought about it because my first RV was a new one, and I’ve never regretted it. Meanwhile, he purchased a used RV, a 5th wheel and it gave him all kinds of problems. Once he was towing it and the awning deployed. Yes, the awning. He had to find some tie down straps and strap them around the entire trailer to get where he was going. The air conditioner kept going out … this is Texas and you can’t have that! I’ve not had a major problem with mine. 

You can indeed have problems with your first RV if it is new, but you have to know the systems. If you have mechanical ability or you are a good student in that area, you’re probably going to be ok.

I carry a tote containing spare parts for RV systems. Check this out: we had our lock go bad, and   we couldn’t get in the thing. We did manage to break into it, but once we got inside, we couldn’t open the door. While my wife took apart the lock from the inside, I retrieved the spare lock I had in that tote. We installed it and it was like nothing happened. 

You have to be ready for stuff like that.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
