At 199.00 labor rate I can certainly do research and read manuals to do what repairs I can. My experience with one chain dealer is they're rip offs, and the techs many times are hacks when it comes to repairs. I'm not paying that labor rate to have something done half bass. They'll charge you the full hour even if it takes 20 minutes and you get your rig back with more problems than you went in with.

It's amazing what you can do if you read and give it a try.

I think you are missing Jayco-noslide's point. You don't HAVE to DIY to enjoy RVing. I do a lot of DIY because I enjoy it. If someone doesn't enjoy it they should not feel like they are less of an RVer than those of us that do. Yes, it will cost more money if you have others do the work for yoou, but that is just one more thing to consider when you decide if you can afford RVing.
