Although our pre-paid weekly stay at the self-service RV campground comes to an end tomorrow, we are thinking about staying here for the next week. A check this afternoon with the office over at Camp Red Bay showed very few FHU sites available. At least over here we'll have that available to us. After our first day in the service center it appears that we are going to need a much longer camping stay than desired.
I've decided to detail our daily experiences at the service center in the coming blogs. Some may be a bit on the pessimistic and frustrating side, but all will be accurate. Remember, this is OUR experience, yours may be different.

At 7:06 our tech began searching for our highest priority on the list, an interior water leak in the bedroom floor area. In his defense, he did attempt looking at several possibilities which I suggested. He also consulted throughout the day with several other techs. Bottom line: At the end of the day the leak's location had not been determined and no progress on that item was made.
Well, by now it's time for break at 9:00 AM. It's only 10 minutes, but by the time the tech gets back from the bathroom, BSing with his buddies about what happened during the past weekend, and getting back to the job, it is in reality much longer.
Ok, lunch break is coming by now at 11:20 AM. To his credit, the awning motor has been repaired and re-attached to the side of the rig by lunch. Lunch ends promptly at 12:00 PM. I really have no idea what happened between noon and 1:50 PM, but I can say that no additional items got repaired.
I just have to remember, go slow and take a breath!
The real difference between this visit and years past is that because we are now fulltimers, we truly don't care how long it takes to get our list finished. We really have nowhere to be until the end of March, and HOPEFULLY we'll be cut loose by then.
Tune in tomorrow, for "Day 2 at the Tiffin Service Center".
As always, thanks for stopping by.
