Everyone knows “real men” don’t read instructions. For guys, assembling a new product and figuring out how it works is supposedly intuitive. Unfortunately, too many of us end up with our tails between our legs as we muddle through tricky situations trying to save face. 

Today’s technology is a game-changer. Modern products are driven by high-tech circuitry and lots of buttons, and quite frankly, unless you have the mind of an 8-year-old, operational instructions can be difficult to follow — at least for those of us with limited patience and a fear of 200-page owner’s manuals. 

For many owners, working on systems and accessories is a mystery. While instruction and repair manuals are useful, they sometimes add a new level of stress to a project. Before tackling a project I’m uncertain of, I’ll check for a video online that shows how it’s done. In many cases, these videos are amateurish and thin on content, but there’s usually enough info to make a decision on whether or not to tackle the project.

Recognizing that the video trend is growing, Trailer Life and sister publication MotorHome built a new website that caters to premium-quality how-to content that is sure to change the way most of us handle projects and gain knowledge about RVs and the lifestyle. Under the Good Sam/Trailer Life logo, we launched the website last year. During the introductory period we posted a number of how-to videos showing viewers useful tips and instructional information on many aspects of the RV lifestyle.

By the time you receive this issue, you’ll have an opportunity to subscribe to the next level of our video website, Trailer Life.TV Full Access. This new premium access on is earmarked to be the leading destination for technical RV video content. Here you’ll have unlimited access to videos on maintenance, installation of appliances and accessories and how-to workshops. Once you sign up, you’ll have immediate access to 10-plus hours of premium content featuring original expert tips and exclusive projects — all designed to take the mystery out of RV ownership. You’ll even be able to stream a full-length DVD of original content four times a year. Videos will be updated monthly.

And all this video can be viewed on your computer, tablet or smartphone. Log on to to learn about a number of special offers for Good Sam members. Regular price for premium access is $29.97 per year.

Trailer Life.TV Full Access is just the ticket for guys who hate to read instructions. Now they can watch in privacy, learn the process and look like they know what they’re doing. And guys, don’t get too smug; the gals will be watching, too.
