If there is one true-ism in the RV world: stuff breaks. If one is not willing to fix somewhat "relatively" minor stuff on a recurring basis, as just part of the life, don't get into RVing.

No matter how much, or little, one pays for an RV they:
1) break
2) leak
3) cost $$$ to have repaired if one can't DIY
4) break at the most inconvenient moments.

ALL RV's do all of these with some regularity. They are not like cars nor houses that one sort of assumes work most of the time without issues.

"Ask me how I know this" to steal a quote line.

You are absolutely right that things will Definitely break in any RV and learning to make your own repairs is a must otherwise you won't be RVing very long.
Be Safe and Enjoy the Dream.

It's about time.

What? you didn't have a spare water pump on board? That was one of the important take-aways I got from the RV dreams rally, and I of course have my spare on board!

I'm teasing, I know this rig is new to you, and you're just catching up with everything.

Question is: did you by TWO pumps so that you'd still have a spare? ;-)

Please tell Linda: I got a bigger inverter now, so I can use my toaster!


LOL. We wanted to be sure the new pump was the correct one. Now that we know, the back-up pump is ordered and should be arriving soon - before the Boondocking Rally later this month. :)
