We needed make an unplanned stop at Bay Diesel to get the 'ride height' checked, so we called for an appointment and got scheduled for 1:00 PM on Friday.
Meanwhile, we contacted Waylon Burroughs (Burroughs Custom Upholstery, (662)687-1748), to get upholstery repair work done on our couch. The middle seam was giving way. It had a temporary repair, but after talking with Waylon, we wanted to get it fixed permanently.
With that done, we had time to get propane before our after-hours windshield replacement appointment.
Next, our major cost item ($1,600) this trip - a new windshield. I contacted David Hestor who does windshield repairs and replacements. We had made arrangements to be at Bunkhouse RV ( the former McKinney RV location) at $;45 PM. When we arrived they were finishing up another windshield replacement.
We left the Roadrunner and drove over to Sparks Restaurant in Belmont for a quick dinner and returned about 6:00 PM. David and partner Nathan had already removed the original windshield and were cleaning out the rubber trim gasket channel thing. Once that was done they got the new windshield (which Tiffin buys from Turkey, something I found interesting) and hoisted it into place.
We were at Bruce Deaton's to get two cracks fixed that were above the top corners of both front slideouts.
We also got a touch-up paint repair kit and Austin reinforced the DS front bay door area where the hinge attaches to the door.
He secured a piece of aluminum over the old area, then painted it before attaching a new hinge. One more pesky item checked off of the "Red Bay Repair List".
After checking things about he determined the DS rear ride height controller was not working and needed to replace it. Yikes, I wondered how much that was going to be? (not too bad - the part was $101).
We always love coming to Red Bay and this visit was another great experience.
