You got into RVing because it's fun.
You joined all those Facebook groups. You got on YouTube and saw...
You haven’t even purchased your RV yet and you’re seriously stressed about the integrity of your rig.
Or maybe you already drove your RV off the lot and now you’re really worried.
The truth is…
No matter what RV you have that thing is gonna break.
I mean, c’mon. It’s a box on wheels. Full of appliances. And systems. And propane. And people pushing buttons and banging around all day.
All that stuff barreling down the highway is bound to break at some point or another.
And who are you going to call when it does?
Hint: It's not the Ghostbusters.
There's service centers and RV dealers out there.
And that sounds great, but dealers take priority on RVs that were bought there. And if you’re traveling, you probably aren’t near the dealer where you purchased.
Sure, with everything going on right now, there's WAY less RVs on the road. And if you need some repairs right now? You could probably make an appointment. But staff is limited and who knows if the guy working right now even knows what he's doing. You don't have to be a certified RV tech to work at a service center.
On top of all that, there's going to be a crazy amount of people trying to get service when this is all over. You don't want that. You want your rig to be road-ready.
Then you might think to go with the mobile mechanic.
While we will always recommend a mobile mechanic first, there are some drawbacks. They can be really expensive and in short supply.
But what if I told you there was another option?
And it's best of all. What if I told you that you can fix it yourself?
You can fix your own RV.
You just need the right information.
Because the truth is RV systems are basic, easy to access, and simple to fix.
Here are two examples from our students:
Sue was stranded at the campground with no clue how to get her slide back in. One phone call to Ed and her husband was able to make it to his retirement party on time….without waiting hours for a tech or spending hundreds of dollars to get it fixed.
Tim took his RV to the shop to have his hot water heater replaced. The shop charged him $200 and did it incorrectly! He called Ed and over the phone was able to diagnose the issue and Tim was able to fix it himself within minutes!
We know fixing stuff yourself is super intimidating, but if they can do it, so can you. Learn to fix it yourself for less money and in less time.
You can get started today. We can help.
Learn from a certified RV Tech
We are Barry and Debra Benton, owners of The Virtual Campground, an online resource for RVers of all types. In our course, Fix It Yourself, a certified RV Tech shares how you can learn what it takes to keep your RV properly maintained and road ready.
Fix It Yourself will:
Here’s how it works:
Fix It Yourself is a journey that takes you from not knowing much about your RV (if anything) to knowing all the systems in your RV and teaching you how to repair and service them. The course is broken into 8 modules:
MODULE 1: Generators
Often your lifeline when traveling, we give you everything you need to know about how they operate and what to do when they don’t.
MODULE 2: Water Systems
Your RV is self-contained. This is awesome, but can be tricky to navigate sometimes. We’ve got your back.
MODULE 3: Roof maintenance
Keep up with your roof and never worry about insane water damage...and the expenses that come with that.
MODULE 4: Tire maintenance
Just like a runner takes care of his feet, an RVer needs to take care of her tires. Learn how to here.
MODULE 5: Electrical & Batteries
Possibly the most frightening and confusing systems in your rig. We break them down for you to understand, diagnose, and fix out there on the road.
MODULE 6: A/C & Furnace
RVing is about being comfortable. Learn these systems and you will be.
MODULE 7: Propane
These videos are all about giving you the confidence to know you’re not going to blow something up.
MODULE 8: Slides
Ah, the first RV luxury. We love 'em, but fixing them can be scary. This module will make things so much easier the next time your slide won't go in (or come out.)
These modules will be delivered to you in on-demand video format for you to watch at your own pace. Like binge watching Netflix, but more educational. You will also be able to download the videos immediately upon purchase because we know you might need to watch a video when the campground internet is not up to snuff.
What makes this course perfect for you?
This course was created with the everyday RVer in mind. If you know what a screwdriver is, you’re going to be a campground rockstar by the end of the course.
Fix It Yourself was created by a certified RV mechanic who speaks in everyday language that we can all understand. Each lesson is broken into bite-sized chunks to make it easy to follow along as you work on your rig.
In addition, we have included a tool list and checklists to help you track your maintenance and safely depart from campsites.
And last but certainly not least, this course pays for itself with just one or two minor repairs.
Get ready to save thousands and get rid of that “what now?” feeling forever.
All RVs break eventually. Even and especially when they're sitting around. Without a plan in place, you’re going to spend thousands and waste travel time waiting for someone else to repair your rig. This course is a way to change all that.
Not only will you learn the systems of your RV. You’ll be able to fix your RV with confidence, knowing you can get back to camping quickly when the time comes. And you’ll have an RV tech whose worked with hundreds of other RVers and their rigs to walk you through the process.
