Yesterday, Jimmy, called us to tell us it was our time to come to the paint bay.
Here, they would fix the surface cracks in the shower. Thomas told us it would take most of the day. The cracks were in the soap dish so he had to hand sand the small section, add some gel coat, let it dry, and sand it again.
While Thomas worked on the shower, we passed the time visiting with other customers in the lounge. One of the couples was here the last time we were and it was fun catching up with them and their travels. They left Branson heading for Florida and made a stop in Tunica. While there, they lost the electrical system in their coach...so Red Bay was a must for them.
We couldn’t get to the motor home for lunch, so at someone’s suggestion, we headed downtown to Jack’s. They have wonderful chicken. Yummy…but it was the meal for the day. Once we were back to the campground, it wasn’t long before we found Thomas finishing up for the day. Soon we were headed back to our site.
We spent the rest of the afternoon and evening just hanging out. Thanks to the time change, it was dark before we knew it. I thought it was time for bed and it was only 6:00. Well, guess it will take a few days to get used to that.
This morning came with sunshine and the promise that we could get into a 3-hour express bay. We made the decision to try for the express bay because the service writer was still saying we had about 2 week wait for a regular bay.
And, as promised they got us in right after lunch. We spent the morning getting our list prioritized, with the exception of the heat pump, which doesn’t count against our 3 hours. I think with luck and a couple of techs that will work, they can get it all done. We will see. They have 3 hours and counting…
Well, here we are at the end of our 3 hours…the heater is repaired with new fan blower, however, it came with a high pitch squeal. At least we have heat and air. And, tomorrow they will check out that squeal.
They replaced the roller on the slide out which corrected one problem, but we are having to wait on a decision about a tear in the slide awning. A warranty issue. They also replaced the gasket that was loose on the slide. Seems as they had a batch of gaskets that were defective. Guess we were one of the lucky ones. Oh, well, they took care of it.
The wind deflector on the front door and the passenger side slide adjustment did not get done in our 3-hour time frame. And, when your 3-hours are up, you are out. However…
They are going to try to work us back into the system in the next day or so.
