Hi Mindy. Welcome to the forum. Don't be afraid to ask any questions. You've already started with a few but keep them coming. It's great that you start a new post with every question. It makes it less confusing. Hang in there. We're here to help you.
 
I'm starting with the easy ones lol and thanks for not making me feel stupid.
Went to camping..RV outdoor type store asked sales guy about how the wiring worked...where should I start looking for issues once I determined the fuses were good...he said I was at the wrong store...I needed to go to repair shop.
I decided then that if you didn't own or live in an RV I couldn't ask for any kind of REAL info, because I'm brand new at it and need real info not just for u to pull out a book and read off a part number lol.
Besides I figure if the boys and I fix it ourselves we gain the knowledge.
Thanks for the welcome

No question is a stupid or dumb question. If you don't know the answer, it's not dumb to ask. I'd have second thoughts about going back to that RV store unless that's your only option.
 
Welcome to the forum Mindy! You might end up needing it more than anyone else here lol, hopefully your new project will be fun and adventure than it is headache!
 
I agree the "customer service" ppl would be more helpful if they were a nipple ring on a pig!

Yes..if I don't see the humor in all this I'm not sure I could maintain. The boys and I like to call these little fixes adventures because we have no idea lol and it's almost always a surprise.

Looks like you've got a good attitude about life. That will help as you work though the adventures.

And we like to help. Just remember we were all new to this at one time. So we've been there
