Ten Million Views! Fifty Thousand Subscribers! Thank You!

TheRVgeeks Miscellaneous 66 Comments

We’re excited to announce two big RVgeeks milestones: 10,000,000 YouTube video views and 50,000 subscribers! We want to sincerely thank all of our viewers for your continued support.

After friends purchased their first RV four years ago, we started making How-to RV videos as a way to show them how to use the systems on their rig. Little did we know that sharing those tips publicly would turn into the most popular RVing channel on YouTube, featuring DIY, maintenance, upgrade, travel and product tips.

The feedback we’ve received has been incredibly positive and rewarding. We love hearing that we’ve helped fellow RVers successfully tackle projects that they might otherwise have (unnecessarily) paid a professional to do.

This short video is just our way of saying thanks, and maybe adding a smile to your day. smile

As we go forward, we have lots more videos planned, including some unexpected surprises. Please keep your questions and comments coming. We’ll always do our best to answer your questions, or at least refer you to someone who can. We learn new things all the time, so your input is really valuable. Comment on a video and add your expertise to the discussion!

Our message is simple: “We’re not professional technicians, and you don’t have to be either.” Most people can perform a wide range of DIY tasks on their RVs once they know how. As far as we’re concerned, there’s no better feeling than completing a repair, upgrade or service that we originally thought would be too challenging. The result is usually a trifecta of great results: big savings, a superior outcome, and the satisfaction of doing it ourselves.

Thanks again for subscribing to our website and YouYube channel and for supporting us as we continue creating content for all of us to use (we sometimes watch our own videos to remember the details of annual maintenance tasks, LOL).  There must be something to these videos after all! wink



We're handy RVers, not professional technicians. We're happy with the techniques and products we use, but be sure to confirm that all methods and materials you use are compatible with your equipment and abilities. Regardless of what we recommend, consult a professional if you're unsure about working on your RV. Any task you perform or product you purchase based on any information we provide is strictly at your own risk.

We sometimes receive products for evaluation at no cost, and The RVgeeks are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites. But our opinions are our own, you won’t pay an extra penny, and we only link to products we personally use, love and can recommend to friends with complete confidence.

      Hi Roger & Anna! Thank you so much for your kind comments. We hope things are going well for you in your Tiffin, and that your PressurePro TPMS is continuing to provide peace of mind. Also got you e-mail about your slide-topper mirror. Thanks for the great tip! Safe Travels, Peter & John

  2. Thanks for the great tips over the years! I’ve applied much of your advice to our 2010 ElkRidge 5ver and expect many years of service to follow.

  3. Thank you for your videos they have helped and entertained me while I prepare my 27′ National for the road I have learned a lot from you guys and congrats on your numbers

  4. Ah, come on guys, break your stairs for us! LOL. Just kidding. It’s just one of those nasty repairs that are real easy to fix and probably intimidates RV’ers from doing. I would have videotape my repair but yours are so good. Anyway keep all your videos coming and thanks again for all the help.

  5. ABSOLUTELY ONE OF THE BEST RV SITES OUT THERE. FOR A 74 YEAR OLD CAMPER, THE INFORMATION AVAIABLE IS WORTH IT’S WEIGHT IN GOLD. THANK YOU FOR AN OUTSTANDING JOB AND KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

  6. Congrats guys. Best how to videos on the web. Clear,concise instructions that have no doubt saved me in the thousands of dollars. I know you haven’t done one, but I just replaced my entry step motor. The motor is pretty standard for most RVs and cost about $150. A shop quoted me over $500 to install it and 2 weeks before they could look at it.
    If you ever get the chance to, please make a video of that for your viewers. It must be a fairly common problem due to the plastic gear found in most of these motors. Thanks again and keep up the great work.

      Hi Robin! Thanks so much. One drawback to our being plain old RVers, vs professional techs, is that we only get to do a video when our RV requires a particular repair or maintenance. Otherwise, we’d be taking apart perfectly good systems! We will definitely keep the step repair on our video “to do” list, and maybe even hope for a motor failure? LOL Seriously, we’re actually less bothered by some types of repairs being needed, since “We can make a video!” is our way of making lemons out of lemonade. :)

  7. Way to go guys!
    Those numbers put you in rock star status,,that is RV Rock Stars!
    I don’t even have an RV yet but have watched everyone of your videos,,they are great!
    Another addicted viewer/fan – keep up the great work and hope to cross path with you sometime in the future.
    Thanks so much.

      Thanks Fred! You’re too kind. Hope to see you on the road… but possibly a little further West than Boston?! We’re originally from the East Coast, but once we started RVing, the dramatic beauty from the Rockies west seems to keep us out here most of the time. ;-)

  8. Congratulations guys. Thanks for all the great videos you’ve produced. They’ve been instructive and confidence building. I purchased an older Holiday Rambler Endeavor a couple of years ago and was pretty nervous about doing anything mechanical on it, but your very well produced videos convinced me that I could at least give it a try.

      Thanks Craig. Older RVs are definitely a great playground for a DIY RVer! Now that ours is ten years old, we’re finding that renovating and rejuvenating things, even in minor ways, is very rewarding.

  9. Most Excellent. Congratulations! We have been following you two for over a year. We are about 7 months away from being full-timers also; and semi-retired.

    You have been giving us the confidence to take care of our rig, learn the ins-and -outs, what accessories are important and most importantly – to have the right attitude.

    Thank you so much! We appreciate the work you do.

    Not only that, we’re learning about how-to videos from the pros and hope to be able to help others as well.

      Hi J&C! You two must be SO excited about your upcoming switch to full-timing! We really only planned to be on the road for about 2 or 3 years, but it’s so great out here that we’ve never looked back and have no plans to settle down in the foreseeable future. Thanks for your nice note. So glad to hear you’ve found our videos helpful.

  10. Congratulations on your milestone achievement!!! Well deserved. You have provided much needed information on RV maintenance, upgrades and service to this community. We thank you for taking the time, effort and using your own resources with this endeavor that has definitely become a passion yours.

    thank you,

      Thanks so much Ed. Without the interest, input and support of people like you, we probably wouldn’t be making videos at all. We’re having fun doing it, and it’s always great to hear we’re being helpful, too.

  11. Congratulations!!

    I started changing out some of my bulbs to LED bulbs after watching one of your videos. I went down to M4 products and got a few from Steve.
    We boondock often on the East Side of the Sierras, and they have worked out great. Plus we are saving energy on our batteries!!

    Thank You,

  12. Hey RVG’s! Congratulations on your milestones and thanks for sharing information on products, selecting the right products, the how-to videos,etc. I started watching RVGeeks over a year ago and have been full timing for 3 years. Your suggestions have saved me the time and effort because you have already found the best products.

    Keep your videos coming. And it’s great to see faces that goes with the hands we usually see in your videos….haha!

    My best,

  13. I just signed up for your newsletter a day or two ago, even though I don’t have an RV. Instead, I’m building a house truck (aka Tiny Home) but some of the systems are similar. I’m a voracious fact-gatherer, so the kind of information you guys present is very satisfying! Thanks so much :)

      Hi Parker! We LOVE tiny houses. Once we unloaded our oversized stick house in 2003 and moved into an RV, we realized that we don’t need nearly as much space as we thought (we often talk about downsizing RVs too). Living in a small space is like having our own fort!

  14. Congratulations on the milestone, guys.

    For years I’ve tried to convince my wife there’s no reason we couldn’t engage autopilot while we moved back to the dinette for lunch. I think she doubts that now, after seeing your video.

  16. Bravo! I have always enjoyed your videos. Your continued success comes as no surprise. True quality is not hard to recognize. I wish you both many blissful miles and keep up the great work! I know how much goes into a production such as yours. Someday I hope to see you on the road.

  17. WoooHooo Guys! Congrats on this most-amazing milestone. Your videos have shown the RVing community that many maintenance projects are well within our reach. They are clear, concise and easy to follow…not to mention beautifully produced too. We all love our RV’s and we love you guys too for sharing your knowledge with us!

      Well thanks so much for the kind words, Bill. But I’m going to have to out you as possibly a little biased, due the the fact that, as you well know, you and Mark are of course the “friends” we refer to whenever we talk about the reason we started making videos in the first place. Karma can go both ways, and in this case, it’s all good. Our 10-day “Excellent Adventure” through Utah in 2010 has led you guys to become fellow RVers, and us to become How-To RV guys. We’ve been so happy to see you getting so much great use out of your Kountry Star this summer. Can’t wait for you guys to be ready to quit the rat race and caravan with us out West. ;-)

  18. Hi there guys: I think another squeal from me on that video,,,,,

    It was so much fun and congrats on all you two do.

      Thanks so much P&R! And thanks for the info on your RV shop. We’re really interested, and can’t wait to see your RV when it’s done to see how it looks. Sorry we won’t be seeing you this weekend, but have a great holiday anyway!

  19. Thank YOU!! We went from a tent, to a pop up to a 32′ Coachman Travel Trailer and we couldn’t have done it without you and all the tips on your channel!
    Congratulations !!

  21. Hi Guys!

    Just a quick note to thank you for all of your help in last 5 months. My wife and I purchased an immaculate 2000 Newmar Dutch Star pusher back in March to give this a try for the first time. We are long time mariners and have embarked on this new recreation. I was sort of comfortable with the common systems used on boats but had some reservations about how the RV gig was going to work.

    You guys are now my best friends! Many, many thanks for all of your online help. Great work with great communication!!!

    Sincere Thanks,
    Mark and Peggy Spencer

      Thanks so much for the nice note, Mark & Peggy! And congratulations on your Newmar. We’re of course a little biased, but we still love ours.

      When we finally get around to editing it, you will love the video we’ve been sitting on since last summer. We crewed aboard friends’ new-to-them Krogan Whaleback on a week-long trip from Annapolis to NYC, and shot footage of various systems on board. The video will compare “land yachts” to “yacht yachts.” Stay tuned!

  22. Very cool having those numbers! Hey, if it wasn’t for your videos, I wouldn’t have changed my own slideout toppers.

    I hope sooner or later you can get that drone video going. My friend still hasn’t gotten his Solo gimbal, but he’s been flying the Solo and is pretty impressed.

      Thanks Greg! Great to hear. We’ve had the Solo out quite a bit, but without the gimbal, we’re not about to post video yet. ;-) We’ve seen the sensational footage from people who already received theirs and can’t wait! It’s a remarkable bird.

      Thanks Cherie! Means so much coming from you. Glad you got a laugh out of it too. Sorry we’ve been a bit quiet lately. As you can see, we’ve been holed up in the “studio” a lot. LOL We’ve been watching the great progress you’ve been making on Zephyr. Hope we all break loose from these northern climes in time to connect in the desert this winter. We miss you & Chris.
