5/6/14 Tuesday in Decatur, IN (Allied Recreation Group)
We were better prepared today even though we didn’t know when they would need our RV. We got up at 5:30 am, ate a small breakfast then got it cleaned up and the rig ready to move. We proceeded to the office then. Fairly soon we saw our service adviser there and asked him about the plans. He hadn’t heard from our technician, so I told him we still had a leak in the bedroom. Ron had told our service adviser that everything was good. Soon Ron was waiting at the rig for us so when we got there we started putting the slides in. Oops. The wiper blade started pulling out when we moved the P/S slide. Okay. Then we took off for another try in the rain bay. This time we stayed with Ron. We had a lovely conversation for the 45 minute wait. Sure enough water started dripping, although not quite out of the same place as usual. Guess he had solved that problem, but now this new one was created. Back to the drawing board. It took him the rest of his work day to get the leak fixed so that after another hour in the rain booth it never leaked (Yay!) and put more screws in the P/S wiper blade.
Thus tomorrow 6 am sharp they’re coming to get the rig for its scheduled engine service as well as the 29 point inspection and lube ($634). We spent our afternoon commiserating with the other people here the realities of this lifestyle with RVs that need so much service/repair.
At lunch time we treated ourselves to lunch at El Camino Real, just down the Hwy. Excellent food and service. We both had half left over so we’ll save those for our travel day which will probably be Thursday-before the thunderstorms hit here.
A bit of spring:
