The RVer's Ultimate Survival Guide
All the important RV safety information you need in one easy to read book.
Neil W. LeKander, author of
"The RVer's Ultimate Survival Guide"
is a longtime recreation vehicle (RV) enthusiast having been exposed to
the joys of the lifestyle by his parents as a youngster. Neil
and Pat (wife of over 50 years) have traveled extensively by RV
(approximately 300,000 miles to date) and owned a series of RVs (often
more than one) for more than 40 years. Neil and Pat lived
full time in their classic motorhome, "UNDO", for thirteen
years while writing this and other books, speaking at
RV shows and rallies and enjoying their travels throughout the USA and
Canada. Neil is a lifelong racing fan with a passion for building
and driving automobiles and is an avid enthusiast of all things
Neil's formal college degree is a BS in maintenance engineering. He is
also is a certified engineering technician, a licensed aviation A &
P and R & E mechanic and a licensed pilot. Most importantly,
Neil retired from a major USA tire company following a 32
year career as a wheel/brake/tire design and product support
engineer. Most of that career was spent in various field-based
positions around the USA working in direct support of customers helping
them to resolve operational problems and to derive the maximum economic
value from those products. Neil's employment presented the
opportunity to lecture extensively on maintenance topics and to work
towards the advancement of professionalism of maintenance
personnel. It also provided the opportunity to write a series of
books with an emphasis on achieving
"excellence in the maintenance and operation of those company products."
In 2010, Neil joined
the staff of Escapees with the assignment of establishing a "new"
and even more effective RV weighing program. The work on this critical
program is now complete and "SmartWeigh" is now in operation at
various Escapee functions, and at several permanent weighing sites
around the country. SmartWeigh is a full-featured RV weighing program
more accessible to
RVers everywhere and offers even greater weighing accuracy and provides
even more useful weight data and analysis than all previous programs.
Plan now to utilize this essential safety service ASAP. Check it out at:
As Neil and Pat travel the country today they continue to seek the input
of the RVers they meet along the way to add detail and personal
"The RVer's Ultimate Survival Guide."
