This is definitely the time of year to be Red Bay (Allegro Campground) in the 'first come, first serve' service bay line. We won't be able to speak to a technician until Monday morning but we are hopeful we will get in sometime the first week here. They have two categories of work at the Service Bay: 'scheduled appointments' and 'under 3 hour'.
We were not able to get a scheduled appointment because you have to call almost six months in advance for one of those and we have had an 'evolving' schedule. So we will wait our turn and get our work done in 3 hour increments. Our biggest items this time are to replace windows and get new shades. But we have a fairly long list also. About 15 items to get fixed.
For those of you that are not on the road yet and are looking to get a motor home, this is a fairly 'average list'. We were here last December and had a similar one.
You may be thinking: What? Things break on the motor home? What kind of an RV did you get?
The rude awakening for me long before we purchased this 40' motor home is that is has no less than 3,000 moving parts and at times it shakes and rattles down the road as if there is an earthquake and we are in the middle of it! It comes with the territory ~ we are always on the lookout of what needs to be fixed or maintained. It is our only home and we want it to last. That is why we keep a list of things to look at or fix and make what has been a yearly visit to the factory.
So what is on the list you ask? Here is our current list:
