Hello, and welcome back to our blog here at Master Tech RV! If you recall from last time, we talked about several things that you’ll learn by spending life on the road in your RV that you won’t learn in a traditional home. Since there’s so much to cover, we’ll be splitting this blog into three parts. Last time, we talked about learning how to appreciate the outdoors, learning that you’re getting more for less, and learning how to use your creativity in ways that you never thought were even possible. Keep reading to learn more and contact Master Tech RV if you need repairs, renovations, or upgrades for your RV.
It makes you a do-it-yourselfer
If there’s one important lesson you’ll learn on the road, it’s to take matters into your own hands. When you’re living at home and you’re hungry, your toilet clogs, or your lawn needs mowing, it’s so easy to just pick up the phone and call someone to do the work for you! Living life on the road teaches you that anything you need done can be done through your own hard work, not the hard work of others.
If you’re spending months at a time or your whole life out on the road, you can expect to run into some issues every once in a while, but that’s okay! It’s struggling through these problems that will make it easier for you the next time and you’ll be smarter as a result.
Think about it this way: your RV is basically a self-contained home. It has most of the features that your home does, only contained within a much smaller area. If something goes wrong, you’re not going to have a handy repair man there to fix everything for you. Sure, you may be able to stop somewhere and have someone fix it, but you’re going to have to use your instincts, especially if it happens at an inconvenient time. This will teach you to start doing things on your own and be more dependant on your own knowledge. And if you can’t figure out how to fix it, you’ll be more apt at coming up with a workaround, which is another great skill to have!
Preparing for the worst
Kind of going along the same lines as the last point, a life spent on the road will teach you how to prepare for the worst. When you’re sitting at home, there’s a simple solution to just about every problem you could have. However, while RVing, you’ll need to get used to planning things ahead of time. As you can imagine, you have a limited amount of space on your RV and a limited weight you can carry, so you’re going to have to ration pretty well. Going to be away from civilization for a couple days? You’ll need to make sure you have plenty of food, water, and a backup plan in case anything goes wrong. It’s generally a smart idea to have some sort of emergency med kit stored in your RV at all times as well as a backup fuel supply.
