Thumbs up "Emergency Repair" Forum suggestion

I have a suggestion...

What about having a specific forum for "Emergency repairs" or "Emergency troubleshooting"?

This forum could be dedicated to those in dire need (i.e. in the middle of nowhere, far from a repair facility) that are currenly experiencing trouble with their TT or MH, and need some immediate input/assistance from other forum members to help them get up and running again.

For Example: A forum member's TT has suddenly had some brake issue. Let's say lock up or something like that. He/she was trying to pull out of camp that morning and discovered the issue. The forum member is currenly at a remote campsite, 70 miles from the nearest RV repair facility.

If the forum member has internet he/she can then post the issue and ask for help. Wrost case (and perhaps more common) would be to call a friend/forum member and have them post a thread for help.
Hopefully, some other forum members could then see this and chip in and suggest what to try to do/ look for/ try/ offer to make calls/ look up info/parts on the internet, etc...

This forum would be used as "emergency" immediate help needed, and not for normal repair questions on the repair forum.

What do you guys think? Would there be any benifit to something like this?
