In the past few weeks I have gotten a lot of good knowledge from this forum. I have ask many questions and received very good replies. I got the nerve up to install a back-up and Blind-spot camera system which to some of you younger folks would not be such a big deal but when your in your 80's, believe me it's a very big deal. I knew nothing about air compressors and ended up being able to buy one that suited my needs to a tee. Now while I get up enough nerve to tackle the next big project on my motor home, I'd like to find out what others have learned from this forum that they think is the best thing to know as a motor home owner, or the two or Three best things to know. This should prove both interesting and informative. Thanks Patter

Best two things - no question is too dumb or will go unanswered AND 2) Bring your sense of humor with you, it will be tickled.

1) That we ALL have something in common
2) Most of us look out for each other
3) Most of us do NOT have enough time to go and do what we love to do
4) We all try to help one another
5) This board is very addictive
6) That Calgon works in the Black tanks
7) Many new and exciting places to go
8) Lots of new recipes
9) That you can ask a ??? and usually within an hour you have several answers

This is what came to my mind when I read your question..

A truck driver gave a tip about how to keep a wide motorhome in the middle of a lane. He said to concentrate on your gas pedel foot,
(right foot) and try to keep this foot centered in the lane.
I tried it and it works great. Looking down both sides in the mirrors, perfect center.

Good RVing to all,

I have receive many good sugestions and have used a few, and have shared some of my experances and problems with others.

I have also learned that when somebody makes a statement and leaves themselves wide open for remarks from others, about there TV,MH,5er, or the color of their hair. hold your toung or you may loose your a--. there are a few out there that will take offence regardless wheather it is true or not. and if you make a bad call statement be able to take what you receive gracefully.

That when some of my friends say "doesn't it drive you nuts to be that close to your boys all summer" and I say "doesn't it drive you nuts not to be" I am right!!!

I have learned a lot. Just because I have been Rving for 40 years means nothing. My son and daughter have just joined the RV scene and I have been able to help them in various cases because I have done my home work on the forum. One thing that stands out is to buy a quickie flush. Best thing for cleaning out a holding tank ever. Uses less water and you are done in 10 minutes, far less time than those using flush kings or sewer solutions. Simply an amazing tool.

I agree with Momma- you never stop learning new and better things! But the best funny thing is, just when you thought you heard the "Best Stupid RV Owners Trick" you get even more amazed when some one tells you the "one about the guy that_____________________!" Its good for a chuckle, guffaw or belly laugh! Remember... "A day that passes without learning something new, is a wasted day!"

The best single thing I have learned is removing bugs from the front of the RV with used dryer sheets. That sounded insane but wow does it work! Also, I found this forum to be a great resource to get a feel for which brands to look at and stay away from based on the numbers of problems talked about or non-problems praised.
