Dreadful Disease among Campers

This info came from Good Sam's Blog. It's a timely warning about a campers' disease which can be easily caught if you're not on guard. Diagnosis is a simple matter because the symptoms are quite obvious, even in the early stages. Unfortunately the manifestation is much more recognizable in others than in yourself, and the cure remains elusive.

One of those who suffers from this disease wrote the following:

...You won’t find [this disease] in a medical dictionary or any psychology textbooks that I am aware of. In fact, I am not even sure it has been officially identified. I call the disease (or disorder), Tinkeritus. I define this as, “The inability to leave things as they are or, more specifically, to leave things alone. Every RV we have owned has suffered the effects of at least one of its owners having this disease. You see, it really doesn’t make any difference how the RV is designed or equipped at the factory. I simply must make it different – or, as I see it, more efficient and better.”

Aren't you glad this isn't fatal?

I wonder if there is a 10 step program to help those of us that suffer from this malady.
Due to the pandemic, my life now exists of only 3 days, yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Everything else has been forgotten!
