The main purpose of this book is to act as a how-to reference manual for outfitting your RV or mobile home with the tools to support your working and life style and is written from the perspective of traveling full-time on the road. A secondary purpose is to supply information for persons to boondock where they wish and still have the electrical conveniences without having shore power. You will find topics on electrical systems, computers, solar energy and communications. Most all of the components referred to in the book are easily found at any computer retail store, hardware store and of course, on-line. You can save hundreds of dollars by installing your RV systems and have the pleasure and satisfaction of doing it yourself. The examples illustrated are a starting point to give you ideas on how to make changes to your RV. You will find detailed pictures, schematics and illustrations throughout the book to guide you along the way. There is also a reference section for finding the components you need and to further explore a topic. Included is a glossary of technical definitions for terms and abbreviations. For the more technically inclined, there are sections interspersed all throughout the chapters that provide ancillary information on the topic being discussed. Go to these Sidebars to learn more about the technology or feature. For those that work on the road, replicating your home or work office into a mobile office in the past has been difficult and frustrating to achieve because you could not accomplish all the same features and functions that are required to perform your job. As time has progressed, technology and people's inventiveness have continued to progress and seems to be progressing in an increasing geometric fashion. Obviously, this is good news for the mobile worker or mobile entrepreneur. Today, as of the writing of this book, the technology is available to match the performance and functionally of a brick and mortar establishment.

Anybody from the RV owner to the service technician can comprehend and determine troubles with an RV refrigerator. In this practical manual, the authors provide profound discussions in troubleshooting. True to its name, Average Joe's RV Refrigerator: Troubleshooting & Repair Guide aims to help any person in making minor repairs by himself/herself. It also supplies information that helps one know whether or not his/her service tech is qualified to make an educated analysis of the problems and is able to do the repairs successfully with the least amount of cost available to the consumer. Geared to assist any individual anytime, anywhere, Average Joe's RV Refrigerator: Troubleshooting & Repair Guide is a handy book that will be of use for both personal and business needs. Book Review: "Average Joe's RV Refrigerator Troubleshooting and Repair Guide made me feel confident that I (an average Joanne) could pull out my own RV refrigerator and know what I was looking at, what to check first depending on the problem, and where to proceed from there. Without the guide, I'd never know where to start. There are a lot of photos and the troubleshooting charts are easy to read, with a column for symptoms, possible problem areas, and causes and remedies. They identify specific problems for which I need to call on a repair specialist but I was surprised to see that many of the remedies are simple enough that I would not be afraid to tackle them myself. This guide will help anyone assess problems with thier RV refrigerator and try, first, to fix it yourself, thereby saving on costly repair bills." frugal-rv-travel

Old campers have an appeal that reaches back in time and can send your imagination soaring. Let's face it: they are cool. Who hasn't seen one parked on a boulevard with a "for sale" sign and pictured it bouncing along behind the family car, ready for adventure and fun? Unfortunately, campers are not quite homes, they are not quite cars, and they have their own unique systems and demands that make fixing and upgrading a challenge. Even if you have plenty of DIY experience, a camper speaks a foreign language. Consider Camper Rehab your Rosetta Stone for the language of Shasta, Dutchmen, or Airstream. This book is a top-to-bottom guide to getting a fifth-wheel, teardrop, or other camper trailer ready for the road and beyond. From basic troubleshooting to electrical and plumbing projects, replacing interior surfaces, and clever (sometimes "retro") decorating ideas, this book uses detailed illustrations, color photography, and a wealth of step-by-step, how-to information to get help you get your travel trailer into shape for your next big--or little--adventure. And in case you haven't pulled the trigger on that trailer you're eying on Craigslist just yet, Camper Rehab also walks you through the process of evaluating a potential purchase, identifying which issues are fixable and which are dealbreakers, as well as how to spot hidden problems. Written by accomplished DIY author Chris Peterson, whose light and approachable tone is coupled with the hardworking DIY information you need, Camper Rehab is a must-have for any camper owner or dreamer.

In the late 1970s we ventured across the country from northern California to western Pennsylvania and back through Washington and Oregon in Steven's boxy old 1965 Chevy van. Those were the days, my friends. That trip had a lasting effect and over time we realized we were destined to be full time RVers. In 1995 we sold our house and a Recreational Vehicle became our home. An RV has been our home every since.

How can we as parents, educators, and members of the business community prepare students to be successful leaders in today's global environment? It's a critically important question. Gloria Cordes Larson, president of Bentley University, explains why today's practices in higher education are inadequate preparation for our rapidly evolving innovation economy. Instead, she passionately advocates for a hybrid-learning model that integrates business education with traditional liberal arts courses. Today's businesses demand a new kind of hybrid graduate, possessed of both hard and soft skills, with the courage to take risks, the creativity to innovate, and the savvy to excel in a turbulent competitive climate. This book is a valuable resource for participants in every learning community: our homes, schools, and businesses. It will change the way you think about what excellence in education means in today's business environment as you develop strategies that will move our children, students, and future employees forward in a rapidly changing and very challenging world. Prepared with that training and knowledge, they will find greater fulfillment and make their own mark on the future.
