I am officially an RVSA Certified RV Technician!
We’ve been full-time RVers since September 2018, but only on the road since July 2019. Jen and I have been planning and working to fulfill our dream of full-time RV travel. Making this transition meant letting go of the career that had sustained me up to this point. I spent much of the last 20+ years working as a operations and equipment maintenance supervisor in the manufacturing industry. I was very good at my job but I was fed up and burned out. The politics, dehumanizing management, and frustrating environments meant each day was a soul-sucking blender. We budgeted, scrimped, and saved in order to help make the transition possible.
I have always been a hands-on person and enjoy fixing and making things. My favorite job was the three years I spent working as a residential electrician before going back to school to finish my Bachelors degree. I have always enjoyed woodworking, cabinet making, tinkering, repairing, and upgrading. I saw an opportunity to combine things I liked to do with my chosen lifestyle by becoming an RV technician. As a tech I could offer services wherever we chose to live.
I chose to complete the highly-regarded RV technician training and certification program at the Recreational Vehicle Service Academy in Florida. They have been training and certifying RV techs since the 1980’s. I graduated from the program in November 2019.
Wherever we park, I hang out my shingle and get to work. I keep my website up to date with our travel plans at DavidNanney.com. As of this post, I am in the Austin, Texas area until May 1, 2020.
