poliver Posted June 4, 2021 Share Posted June 4, 2021 Good morning everyone. Some of you may be familiar with me already from my introduction and classified placed when I joined the forum. Since then, I've read a lot of posts, watched a lot of videos and U-blogs, and gleaned a lot of very useful information. I have had two great long discussions with Oliver's Sales Rep Anita J. and made all but the final arrangements to place my initial deposit for an LE, leading me to ask for your learned opinions. As a retired woman of many decades 😇 I am not afraid of work, performing the many aspects of required maintenance. I do not expect to hop in my new LE next year at delivery and ride off into the sunset, doing little but having nothing but boondocking fun. At this point I have learned a lot about the requirements with many miles to go before I sleep. I've read that nearly every new TT, made by every manufacturer (including Oliver) has some initial problems and sooner or later will probably develop minor or major water leaks. I read about different problems encountered here by forum members, along with some solutions.I have used the search tool--lol. Before I send the deposit to lock in an order and date for next March, 10 months away, I have a general question: Although I own many tools (and will need others), and have done minor repairs in a variety of homes and work, I'm not sure I have the skills to perform some of the electrical, structural and other fixes that I have seen in your posts. Yes, I can learn but how steep is the learning curve going to be for a woman who is not an electrical engineer? My basic skill sets lie elsewhere but I remain eager to do this. One can never predict how much time remains in this life and I do not want to look back with regrets. I will never be able to rent an Oliver where I live and yes, as John has suggested, I could discover whether this life was for me. Rentals are difficult to find right now due to the general cabin fever going on. I know this life IS for me but my question lies in the skill sets one needs to love and care for my new baby. Yes, I had children, and there was no manual for THAT--lol. What do you folks think? Thank you in advance and I apologize for the length of this post.
