I'm going to stick my neck out on a limb and guess that not every Redwood owner is either on the forum or knows of it. Friend of mine is one.
There also, may be people that are motorhome owners or some other type of RV owner that may be a friend of a Redwood owner. They may surf through or lurk through these forums and pick up information. A person would need to go to one of the Redwood forums to actually gather Redwood information. The Redwood forums are a great source of information if every owner went there. But they don't.
If I see something as I'm surfing then I'll bring it up on another forum. No matter how inaccurate my information, at least someone will know to look. Even if it only helps one they'll appreciate the information they got.
You don't realize how many times I've looked on a forum and someone is talking about, either an issue or a certain way of doing something on or around their 5er and its helped me.
One example; I've installed an inverter so I would have electricity for my creature comforts during our overnight truck stop layovers. While traveling from Florida to Maine, I don't want to start my generator at 6:00AM to use the microwave. Learned this install off a forum.
We're in this all together..........we're RVers!
