RV Lifestyle & Repair is your go-to online resource for RV enthusiasts in search of travel inspiration as well as reliable maintenance, repair, and upgrade tutorials. We’re a community of explorers and passionate RVers driven to gather knowledge and share our experiences.
At RV Lifestyle & Repair, we know that RVing is so much more than a hobby for you—it’s a way of life. We want to be your favorite place where you can feed that passion by learning new techniques, getting new ideas, and connecting with other RVers who feel the same way you do.
What We Do
Our main goal is to help you become a better RVer, and we teach through video. Our instructional RV repair and improvement videos are taught by friendly, talented RVing experts who take the time to walk you through the techniques and demonstrations, providing helpful tips and ideas along the way.
On the website you’ll find an entire library of RVing videos at your fingertips, plus brand new videos to enjoy throughout the month. You’ll also find interesting articles, travel ideas, product reviews, and lots more. Make sure to follow our social media pages too—these are great places to ask questions, share your stories, and connect with your fellow RVers.
Who We Are
We decided that the internet needed high-quality RV how-to videos, so we searched industry and consumer shows, RV suppliers and manufacturers and website forums to find and enlist the top RV experts to help us create RV Lifestyle & Repair. We partnered with Dave Solberg, who for the last 25 years has conducted RV maintenance and safety seminars, developed dealer and owner training programs, written safety and handyman articles and logged well over 100,000 miles on the road in an RV and asked him to be the managing editor of our new community. Behind Dave’s experience and the expertise of many others, RV Lifestyle & Repair has come to life.
RV Lifestyle & Repair is one of several brands within our family of video-based websites, including Woodworkers Guild of America, National Quilters Circle, Fix My Hog, Classic Car Restoration Club, and many others.

Carol Jackson – Contributor
Carol Jackson is the owner of RV Inspection Specialists and is an RVIA certified technician and a certified NRVIA Inspector. Carol has a passion for the camping and RV lifestyle and has been camping and RVing since she was a year old.
Carol’s career began in high school, where her passion for cars and repairing things drove her to study and become a master certified automotive technician, one of the first females in the country to do so. Carol remained in the automotive service industry for more than 15 years, but during those years, through buying, remodeling and selling their personal homes, Carol found herself with another passion and decided to move her career into real estate and interior remodeling. For nearly a decade, Carol designed, remodeled, and sold hundreds of residential and commercial projects. During that second career, Carol and her husband were able to travel more, and they owned several motorhomes that seemed always to have issues while they were traveling. Carol would jump in and diagnose and repair the fault on the road, and that made her realize that she could make a career out of all three of her passions. Carol began the training necessary to become a certified RV inspector and technician and worked to achieve her certified level technician status.

A familiar name to many RVers, Sue Bray has worked in the RV industry throughout her career. She was Executive Director of the Good Sam Club for 30+ years, growing it from less than 200,000 members to more than one million, and now she’s working with RV Lifestyle & Repair to bring some of her experiences to you. She is currently running her own consulting business, but more importantly is finally enjoying the RV lifestyle she promoted (and lived vicariously) for so many years. Over the summer of 2015, Sue, her husband Mel, and their boxer Harley took off for 10 weeks to tour the country in their 31’ fifth wheel, with no exact plans except to have an adventure. She chronicled their trip and shared lessons learned along the way in a blog series which you can read right here on RV Lifestyle & Repair.
