It’s all fun and games until your RV breaks.
You got into RVing to travel and have fun…
Mountain or beach views
Endless BBQs and s’mores.
And you joined all those RV Facebook groups and got on YouTube and saw…
RV horror stories
Overloaded service centers
Disgruntled RVers constantly complaining
You haven’t even purchased your RV yet and you’re seriously stressed about the integrity of your rig.
Or maybe you already drove your RV off the lot and now you’re really worried.
The truth is…
No matter what RV you get (or have) it’s gonna break.
I mean, c’mon. It’s a box on wheels. Full of appliances. And systems. And propane. And you drive it 65mph down the highway.
Something is bound to break at some point or another.
And who are you going to call when it does?
Hint: It’s not Ghostbusters.
You have a few options when it comes to RV repair.
You could take it to the RV service center or shop.
And that sounds great, but dealers take priority on RVs that were bought there. And if you’re traveling, you probably aren’t near the dealer where you purchased.
And service centers just for RVers?
There aren’t a lot of centers that service RVs, and if they do….well, they’re overloaded because the RV industry is booming and pushing out trailers faster than Starbucks cranks out $5 coffees… (hence why they’re always breaking.)
Or you could do the mobile mechanic thing.
While we will always recommend a mobile mechanic first, there are some drawbacks. They can be really expensive and in short supply. (especially right now!)
But what if I told you there was another option?
And it’s best of all. What if I told you that you can fix it yourself?
The truth is RV systems are basic, easy to access, and simple to fix.
Here are two examples from our students:
We know fixing stuff yourself is super intimidating, but if they can do it, so can you. Learn to fix it yourself for less money and in less time.
You can get started today. We can help.
Learn from a certified RV Tech and former RV owner, Ed Wilcox.
Leveraging his knowledge, the team at The Virtual Campground created Fix It Yourself, an online RV maintenance course that teaches you (yes, you!) everything you need to know about your RV to keep it properly maintained and road ready.
Fix It Yourself will:
- Save you 1000s in repair costs
- Save you from the hassle of dealing with service centers and techs that don’t know much about RVs
- Help you stay sane and calm when something breaks
- Protect your financial investment
- Get rid of the overwhelming “I don’t know anything” feeling you have every time something makes a weird noise or breaks in your RV
- Make you the most knowledgeable person at the campfire…and probably the most popular, too
Here’s how it works:
Fix It Yourself is a journey that takes you from not knowing much about your RV (if anything) to knowing all the systems in your RV and teaching you how to repair and service them. The course is broken into 8 modules:
MODULE 1: Generators
Often your lifeline when traveling, we give you everything about how they operate and what to do when they don’t.
MODULE 2: Water Systems
Your RV is self-contained. This is awesome, but can be tricky to navigate sometimes. We’ve got your back.
MODULE 3: Roof Maintenance
Keep up with your roof and never worry about insane water damage…and the expenses that come with that.
MODULE 4: Tire Maintenance
Just like a runner takes care of his feet, an RVer needs to take care of her tires. Learn how to here.
MODULE 5: Electrical & Batteries
Possibly the most frightening & confusing systems in your rig. We break it down for you to understand, diagnose, and fix.
MODULE 6: A/C & Furnace
RVing is about being comfortable. Learn these systems and you will be.
MODULE 7: Propane
These videos are all about giving you the confidence to know you’re not going to blow something up.
MODULE 8: Slides
Our newest module, added based on student feedback! We’ll show you how to identify your slide type & how to work it in an emergency.
These modules will be delivered to you in on-demand video format for you to watch at your own pace. Like binge-watching Netflix, but more educational.
What makes Fix It Yourself perfect for you?
This course was created with the everyday RVer in mind. If you know what a screwdriver is, you’re going to be a campground rockstar by the end of the course.
Fix It Yourself was created by a team so it isn’t just some techy used car mechanic guy standing there telling you what you need to do using words you can’t actually understand.
Ed uses language everyone could understand. And the information is broken into easy, bite-sized chunks that give you an overall picture of your rig and what to do.
Remember, Ed is a certified RV technician.
He’s been to school and has worked on countless models and makes. He’s helped people in person, and via video call and is used to helping people learn how to fix RVs themselves. Everyone can maintain their own RV with Ed’s guidance in this course. And we used a talented teacher to make sure he speaks in terms that teach you what to do.
No more talking heads, boring content, and long videos where you’re never going to remember what was said.
We have only had two goals for this course:
- you take this course and know how to fix your RV.
- you have fun doing it.
And last but certainly not least, this course pays for itself with just one or two minor repairs.
And because we know RVers love the “art of the deal” we’re throwing some super sweet bonuses your way. When you enroll in Fix It Yourself today, you’ll also get access to:
- Bonus #1: Full Fix It Yourself Workbook (Value $37)
- Bonus #2: Student-only Facebook group where you can post specific questions for experts (Value $197)
- Bonus #3: Quarterly Student-only Q&A Session with Ed ($197)
- Bonus #4: Pre-purchase Inspection Guide ($47)
That’s nearly $500 in bonuses…for free when you enroll right now.
I’m so not mechanically inclined. The whole idea of touching my rig is terrifying. I’m afraid I’ll blow something up! How can you be sure I’ll understand what Ed teaches in the course?
We didn’t know how to fix our systems either and are not mechanics by a long stretch; but after going through this course, we feel confident and understood every word said by Ed. If it makes sense to us, we know you’ll totally get it.
So who teaches the course then?
Ed does the bulk of the teaching. Liz, his wife and founder of The Virtual Campground, comes in at the end of each module to ask questions and get further information if necessary. You know, because she’s a former teacher who is just trying to be thorough….not micromanaging or anything.
What the heck makes you so sure you know what you’re talking about?
Ed spent months in school training to work on RVs and get his certification. He has worked on RVs while they were RV owners and has also worked with people over-the-phone. He is very used to teaching people remotely, just like in this course.
I can get this for free on YouTube. Why are you charging me?
For every good video out there on YouTube for RV maintenance, there are 3-5 terrible ones. Unfortunately for you, YouTube doesn’t require its users to upload factual information or be certified to teach. This course however, is guaranteed to include good and reputable information in language you can actually understand. And it doesn’t take an hour to find the right video or to compare answers across several. It’s all right there on the course dashboard once you buy.
What if I want a refund?
Yikes. So this is awkward, but yeah… You can request a full refund up to thirty days after purchase. We want you to trust us and promise if this isn’t right for you, we’ll give you your money back without harassment or guilt.
Just like we trust you’re not going to watch all the videos, download all the cheat sheets, and then ask for a refund.
We’re both better than that.
What if I take the course and still feel confused. Will I be supported aside from the course videos?
We are active in the student Facebook group and available through email to answer any questions or concerns you have. We really want you to feel supported and confident in fixing your rig.
Save 1000s and get rid of that “what now?” feeling forever.
All RVs break eventually. Especially when they’re sitting around. And without a plan in place, you’re going to spend thousands and waste travel time waiting for someone else to repair your rig. This course is a way to change all that.
Not only will you learn the systems of your RV. You’ll be able to fix your RV with confidence, knowing you can get back to camping quickly when the time comes. And you’ll have an RV tech who has worked with hundreds of other RVers and their rigs to walk you through the process.
