Besides telling you about our newbie mistake, we have an LED contest winner to announce! Someone just won $250 worth of LED lights. Was it you? Scroll down to the bottom of this post to find out. ;-)

On April 11, 2014, we marked 11 years of full-time RVing. After all this time, we’ve learned an awful lot about how to live on an RV and manage its systems. But that doesn’t mean we haven’t made mistakes.

As we look back on all the miles we’ve traveled and places we’ve been, we remembered one of our very first newbie mistakes. We know that everyone makes a few errors in managing their RV systems, especially when they’re new at it. Hopefully this video will save you from repeating one of ours, so you can concentrate on your own. lol And maybe you’ll even laugh about them someday, too.

We thought the water heater in our month-old RV was dead, but that’s not exactly how things turned out. Watch the video to find out what happened!

So… about that contest…

Out of a whopping 1,054 entries, congratulations go out to Don & Carol B. (lucky entry #1001)! Don & Carol have won a $250 Online Shopping Certificate to M4 Products. We had a great chat with Don, and he told us all about the upgrades that he and Carol are doing on their motorhome. By coincidence,  they live in Southern California, so he’s planning to connect with Steve at M4 and maybe even pick up his prize in person!

Thanks to everyone who entered, but don’t worry if you didn’t win, as we’ll be announcing another new contest really soon. And be sure to use the code “RVGEEKS5” when ordering LEDs from M4 Products to get a 5% discount on your entire order! We hope that will be some consolation. :)
