Treeman welcome to the forum.
The Amprobe site (tips) recommends always using a True RMS meter because you never know for sure what you are working on.
That is like asking the American Dairy Council if Milk is good for you.
Not the most unbiased opinion.
I agree with much of what has been said above.
However, in the course of general electrical troubleshooting I do not feel the accuracy of a true RMS meter is that important.
Yes I own some and will use them for technical work like VFDs, UPS systems or a maybe a transformer.
But when fixing an outlet that is dead it makes little difference. All we need to know is if it is live or dead. I still keep my trusty wiggys / continuity tester with me.
My true RMS DMMs are to prone to reading 'phantom' voltages when used for general troubleshooting
