With a career in Emergency Medical Services both in the military and civilian sectors, Mike understands the urgency of treating an issue immediately to prevent more problems. After more than two decades helping people in medical crisis, he has transitioned his career goals to help people within the community he thrives in most, those who also embrace the RV and mobile lifestyle.
Mike's leisure time was comprised mostly of driving in a Jeep as deep off-road as it would take him and he really loves over-landing! After meeting his wife in 2009, she joined the adventures and they hit the road together with their pups Ash and Jinx, travel trailer in tow, to explore North America! As their adventures took them farther north (they married in Leavenworth, WA in 2019) Out in the wilderness, they became interested in the RVs they kept encountering during their travels.
Mike became an NRVIA Inspector to help others, in some way, while growing the community he embraced, exploring in an RV or motorhome. Wanting to be able to fix his own issues as much as possible, he wandered deeper into the details and is now working to also become a Certified RV Technician. When he isn't completing Inspections, this will allow him to help fellow adventure seekers with small fixes saving them weeks of wait time at their local RV dealership.
Valued Services Mike offers:
~ RV inspections on both motorized and towable RVs. (These inspections take anywhere from four to eight hours to complete depending on the type of RV and level of inspection chosen).
~ Fluid analysis on the motorized components of the RV (additional fee): (engine oil, engine coolant, transmission oil, generator oil and coolant, hydraulic systems, and Hydronic heating systems). Comprehensive lab reports let you know the current condition of the engine, generator, and other components. (It's like doing blood work)
~ RV 101: Don't know anything about RVing? You can also hire him to give you a detailed walkthrough of your RV, once you purchase it, so you will know how things work and what to do when things go wrong!
He's in it for the business and the people and since resigning from his previous life, he can devote all the time necessary to making RV inspections as thorough as necessary. With the support of the NRVIA, Mike is able to stay on top of all the issues that prospective buyers and sellers need to know about their RVs.
Please give Mike a call and he'll walk you through the process on the phone before you decide what you need!
