We arrived in Red Bay, AL on Sunday and were at Bruce Deaton's Body and Paint Shop early (6:00 AM) to get our crack on the front cap fixed.
Then we got cycled into the Express Bay sequence at the Tiffin Service Center. While waiting for a bay to open up, Nick came by and downloaded the latest DirecTV software for our system. I think it upgrades the basic software and the HD operation. Since we don't have an HD receiver or DVD-R yet, it just makes us ready for that option later on.
The old rubber trim was rusting on the inside and coming off the edge of the slideout so Brandon and Ricky replaced it with a new trim.
Cost for our time in the Tiffin Service Center: $20/night and $228.43. That was a welcome surprise.
While in our first bay, we found a chunk of tire missing on the right front one.
The last thing we are going to do is get an Air Force One to replace our Blue Ox Patriot braking system. We had some smoking brakes when we pulled out Kissimmee last week and now we don't trust the unit.
Cost estimate $1400.
Ugh… the tires and braking system are not in the budget but we are going to go with it.
That should do us for upgrades and maintenance for a while hopefully.
That should do it for this edition of the Roadrunner Chronicles! Thanks for joining us today. Until next time...
