It's Sunday and I'm plugged in at Spartan. So what happens tomorrow morning, do I go into the customer service office at 7:00 am or do they come out? How many service writers do they have as I belive there will be a few rigs here soon, already me and one other.

Peter

Peter I was only there once but you go into the service office at 7AM , with the exact mileage on your coach, Chris McCord ( Service Manager) was the only service writer that day. Can't remember when we moved the coach to their gate. At the gate a mechanic takes the coach to the service bay. Take Care - John

Just left there on Friday afternoon about 5:30pm
they stayed the extra time so I could get on the road.
Go inside and see Cris McCord service rep at 7am
All we can say is the MH has never run better
They just about did every thing on their work list for PM
Rides down the road sooooo smooth
make sure you mention that you're a IRV2.com member. Cris knows who we are and will tell you he's been online to the site
The impression I got Javajelly got him involved
We left newmar to go there friday found tire pressure way off---Newmar must have put air in tires they were all 10-20 lbs more than when we left FL 3 weeks ago

Peter,

We'll be there next weekend for a 4/9 appointment. Are there water hookups or electric only? Dump station?

From there we're headed to Summit for sst trim, although I haven't contacted them yet.

I'm JEALOUS!! I won't be to Newmar until June 4th and there's NO WAY I'd get to Spartan that week as it's their homecoming...

Besides, with all the free lunches I've got lined up in Nappanee I'll be sitting pretty!

Just kidding....don't want to upset those folks offering to buy me lunch!

On a serious note, I would love to have the LADB checked out for ride height and such...
I need to take her and get her weighed now that I have her loaded like I'm going to run.

Spent almost two weeks at Spartan total factory camping.

In the morning Peter you have to pull your coach around and park in one of the two marked spots in front of the Service door. It is a tight turn going from the hook-up lot to the service lot.

You go inside and either knock on the window or poke your head in the door. Chris will write you up and a mechanic will be out to drive the rig away.

I did indeed tell Chris and the Service Operations manager about irv2.com. I'm glad they are actively getting on. I suggested it would help them help customers. Chris is absolutely the best. Gary was my lead tech and he was also great.

Regarding dumping, I did a lot of searching and found the best spot to be the Flying J at the intersection of I-96 and I-69. It is about 20 minutes north of Spartan. It will also give you a chance to test drive the coach and provide feedback to Chris.

You can also dump at the fairgrounds but, Chris told me it was a hassle.

A warning that cell signal is poor around Spartan.

Thanks Scott. After reading your post I walked down, in light rain, and checked it out. I will now bring my coach to the gate by 6:30 am. Thanks.

Peter

Gosh I love this forum.....

How many folks you guys think you helped with THAT info....

We're fortunate that Scotty and others have posted their experiences with regard to visiting Spartan.

One day I'll get there..

Paul, It's been a rough day. I will need to use my diesel powered blender tonight for cocktail hour. Fortunitely it does not have a cooling fan.

Paul, if Peter's blender is anything as serious as his coffee maker it PROBABLY IS diesel powered...

It may not be diesel, but how about Honda 4-stroke powered?

Don't leave home without one!
