John Gaver - owner of RV Inspector ProMy name is John Gaver,
The original “RV Inspector Pro”.

When I began my RV inspection business, in 2017, I was the only full-time NRVIA certified RV inspector in Houston and the surrounding area, servicing areas as far away as College Station, Nacagdoches, League City, and New Iberia, LA. I remained the only RV inspector in the area for about a year.

Then, while I was inspecting a coach for a client, I met a gentleman, who seemed to want to know everything about RVs. Reese Carter was the owner of the coach I was inspecting and he was amazed at my knowledge of RVs. He followed me around all day, trying to pick my brain. I’ve had clients follow me around asking questions, but Reese was like a puppy dog, interested in every little thing I was doing. So I told him about NRVIA (National RV Inspectors Association) and gave him information on how to contact the NRVIA for training and certification.

A couple of months later, Reese called me, to tell me that he had just passed his Level 2 NRVIA certification. However, he told me that he was disappointed that they did not discuss the use of certain tools that he saw me using, when I inspected his coach and he wanted to know more about them. Of course, I was glad to explain their use. But my point is that Reese never seems to be satisfied with what he knows. He always wants to know more.

Since that time, Reese has become an RV tech, a Cummins tech, and an RV dealer, among other accomplishments. He never stops learning and is the hardest working person I have ever known… well, except for me, when I was his age.

But then, in 2022, I decided to retire to Panamá. However, I didn’t want to risk the good name I had built for RV Inspector Pro. I wanted someone who would take it over and continue to advance the good reputation of RV Inspector Pro. There was only one RV inspector that I considered to be 100% worthy of that trust and that was Reese Carter. I didn’t even offer it to anyone else. Reese is almost as obsessive compulsive at me. Well. we’re not all that OCD. But we both admire Adrian Monk. 😂

Actually, what I’m getting at is that I believe that Reese Carter is one of the most thorough persons I’ve ever worked with. Of course, the most important quality of an RV Inspector is that he be thorough. That’s why I am proud to introduce to you, Reese Carter, The NEW “RV Inspector Pro”.

There are few people in the world who are blessed with my level of Obsessive Compulsive Prowess (OCP, not OCD). Don’t be misled. Obsessive Compulsive is not a disorder, to be cured. It’s a gift, to be nourished and developed. OK. All kidding aside, you really need an RV/motorhome inspector whose nature is to examine every little detail and one who has the experience to understand all the nuances of what he’s seeing. I truly believe that Reese is that man.

Moreover, as I mentioned above, Reese wanted to learn about all of the special tools that I use, even though the use of most of them were not taught at NRVIA (probably because of the extra time it takes to teach the nuances of using each of those tools). For example, in class, we were taught that a through-the-wall moisture meter can lie to you and it can. But I taught Reese how to use a thermal camera, together with a non-contact moisture meter, to confirm or disprove the existence of moisture behind a wall or under a floor. So, although both tools, when used separately, can lie to you, when both tools are used together and used with knowledge of how to interpret what you are seeing, you can form an accurate picture of what moisture may be behind a wall or under a floor.

Today, Reese comfortably uses several high-end tools that give him an accurate insight to an RV that many other RV inspectors may overlook, because they are not comfortable with the use of those tools. I’m talking about tools like two types of moisture meters (contact and non-contact), a FLIR (thermal) camera, a borescope (camera for seeing inside and behind items), and an OBD2 and HD-OBD code reader (for reading engine codes on newer small and large motorhomes). In fact, with his Cummins certification, Reese will even be able to read Cummins-specific error codes that are not available to generic OBD readers.
