I became a Certified RV Inspector because a certified inspection gave us the information we needed to walk away from a Class A Diesel Pusher that had some significant issues we did not initially know about. That experience taught me the value of a certified inspection and motivated me to become a Certified RV Inspector so I could help others in the same way.
I also became a Registered RV Technician because I love fixing things. Helping people get the most enjoyment and functionality out of their RV brings me great joy and a sense of accomplishment.
I’m a veteran U.S. Navy Submariner. 20 years as a technician in submarines gave me experience in troubleshooting and repairing a variety of different systems. My wife and I are also full-time RVers. I see our motorhome as a land submarine. It has all its own systems (propulsion, electronics, HVAC, freshwater, wastewater, fuel, etc.) just like a submarine. And, just like a submarine, it is a top priority to keep our RV systems operational, maintain water-tight integrity, and perform routine inspections for things that may not be up to par.
I love our full-time RV life and enjoy helping others in their RV journey. Whether they are at the beginning and just looking for a weekend rig or in the middle of a full-time RV journey, I help people get the most out of their RV.
I care for RV owners (current and prospective) as well as caring for the RVs themselves; that’s why we are known as RV Shepherd.
