Have RV Questions? Ask an RV Mechanic Online.
Houses and cars both can be expensive to maintain. Put the two together in the form of an RV, and you've got an expensive proposition.
RVs are subject to all the same mechanical problems as cars and trucks, but with the fuel, water, and electrical systems of a home thrown into the mix. This makes the parts more difficult to access and the RV harder to work on. RVs are designed for occasional use and to minimize the extra weight of the vehicle, so the construction materials are flimsy and break easily. For people vacationing or living in an RV, repairs are just a normal part of the experience.
An RV mechanic, therefore, has to be familiar with the many different elements of an RV design and how they interact with one another.
To add to the frustration of a normal repair, an RV is likely to break while you're using it, so you're probably far from home and limited to the help you can find locally.
If you need help making sense of an RV repair, the qualified RV Experts on JustAnswer can point you in the right direction, and suggest ways to save money by fixing things yourself if you don’t need a mechanic.
