Such good Info

Noelle and I are building out our 30ft skoolie, and learning from everyone has been excellent. Reading everyone's reply and input for electrical safety is super helpful.

I think these are the types of articles that you save, like Phred's Poop Sheets.

Poop Sheets

Fred aka Phred Tinseth, was Escapee member number 394, essentially an ancestor. He wrote articles on every aspect of RVing in the Escapees Magazine dating back to 1980. He died in 2012, but much of the research and materiel he wrote are still intact in his “Poop Sheets.”
To quote him, “Most standard RV equipment is unacceptable trash, there’s a better way...."
