RV Repair assistance for elderly


Recommended Posts

I am a full timer and have noticed a incrediable number of elderly living long term (years) in RV parks. They are either disabled and/or just elderly and living on SS income. 

The park i am currently in has Joe. Nice old man, tries his best to hold his acient RV together. goton his roof last year and had to replace the wood then covered (very neatly) with a tarp. no insulation, no nothing. His slide is barely holding on. He needs lots of help. 

Today heat index is 109 and his AC gave up. I got him a window unit (not allowed in the park- Owner gave temporary ok) but I wouldnt know how to do any of the other repairs he needs.

So my question is; 

Is there any organization or repair assistance for people like Joe? or that has donated RVs that are in better shape that may be avaliable for very low cost?

I was wondering the same. Iam 65 years old and on disability. My ac went out on my rv and I don’t have the funds to replace it. I live in Jonestown Texas . I paid to have it fixed twice in less than a year and apparently it didn’t get fixed right because it’s still not working and I don’t have the funds to have it replaced or repaired right. Really need help with this issue due to the extreme heat

Jeffrey, maybe you need to look locally for a shelter and cooling center.  If you are retired from the military, you might check with the local VFW or DAV to see if they can assist you.  Otherwise check with area church Ministry Assistance groups.

I am sure that there are many like us that would like to help, but we worked and saved and have money set aside for us and want to be sure it will last for our lifetimes.  All we can do is give advice and try to help to supply some labor, but at 76 years old, that also is limited.
