We completely endorse NRVTA. Our own experience there was a game changer. We tell everyone about their at-home study course for RV Owners designed to teach an owner how to solve about 80% of their own RV issues without needing an RV Tech. Check it out here: https://rvtechcourse.com
We’ve saved almost $100 on a single fill up with this fuel card, but that’s not the only thing great about it. If you’ve ever tried the big truck fuel lanes, you know a regular credit card won’t work there. The Open Roads card is a real fleet card most pumps will take. There’s also an app to tell you all the prices and where to find them. Please tell them Michelle Mendelsohn sent you so we can get the $15 referral: https://myopenroads.com

- Custom Cylinders International – We saved $800 by having one of our “nonrepairable” hydraulic leveling jacks repaired here. We traveled to them and even parked in their lot for two nights. They’re great folks and incredibly skilled. They cut our sealed jack apart, rebuilt it with all new seals, and welded it back together. When they were done, it was literally like brand new. If there had been other problems in the cylinder, say a bent rod, they could’ve fixed that too. RVers normally ship their hydraulic slideout and leveling cylinders to them from all over the world. They fix them and ship them back. They also repair valves and pumps.
