Thanks Vinny. I would have indeed been ringing the doorbell except for a little good luck. One of the customers whose service was completed moved over to the overflow lot on Delaware late Friday (as they are supposed to do). The good guy had been in one of the "pull-through" sites and it was still available at 7:30 am Saturday so I used it instead of the still inaccessible dump station.
I imagine the F150 is still parked right beside the No Parking sign.

I talked to the owner Saturday morning and he immediately moved the vehicle.

On a related note, I got back to the CG about 2:40 on Friday afternoon (Iíve been driving the coach to/from bldg 42 each day) and another coach had just arrived and had removed the cone from my space. I was someone shocked. Iíve read about folks doing this, but thought that it was an isolated occurrence and didnít really happen that often.

Seems like it would be simple enough to do what state parks do here (and I've seen a resort do something similar), and that's have a post/pipe at each site and if it's reserved (waiting on someone to arrive for instance, which I know Newmar doesn't allow reserving, so this doesn't currently apply), label it as such, and when someone is actually occupying the site, even if the coach is temporarily away, have that person's name on a card on it.

When they leave, they can remove the card and change the sign to available.

The cone system seems pretty weak.

Donít blame the cone. Blame the people.

Wayne, Cindy, and I brought the issue up to the hostess for the new service center. I expect spaces will be managed differently when the CG relocates.

Thanks for speaking to the F150 owner. I'm sure that you did not offend him as I probably would have.
Also glad that you were able to get your rightful spot back.

CAN'T WAIT!! The cone system does not work. We pulled in Saturday and two sites were coned off for no apparent reason (according to neighbors) unless someone was saving them for a buddy . We went to overflow.

The last time we were there, we saw our neighbors pack up and leave, never to return. They left the cone out though reserving the site for nothing

Scheduled May 21, 5 day, roof repairs.

Reading through this thread, sounds like I need to bring a large bottle of CHILL pills for the "RUDIES" amoungst us.

Aside from the cone issue, a lot of satisfied customers spoke out.

Thanks for the information on what to do while waiting for repairs.

Being I am having trouble with my kitchen slide I am thinking of heading to Camp Newmar to get it worked on. But my warranty runs out in June and I am pretty sure I cannot get an appointment before that happens. If I get a service appointment will Newmar still honor the warranty. Also if they do agree to honor the warranty how many days do I need to plan on being there.

My issue with the slide is I never know if it will work or not. I had to do a reboot at two of my stops on this trip. There is also a loud clanging at the rear slide lock. It sounds like it is loose. When I closed it up at the last stop I could barely lock the front slide lock. It was at if something was binding. I checked all of my slide motor bolts and they are all tight. The only way I could see anyone could get to the rear slide lock is to remove the slide which I would want only the Newmar techs to do.

get the problem on the record with newmar customer service....then either go to a dealer or go to the factory...but getting it documented well before your warranty is up is critical.....when the work is done is less important....

Yes, report it now and youíre covered. They will tell you how many days for your appointment but my guess is 1-2 but I wouldnít leave until confident in it working.

It needs to be coordinated through your warranty team so email VentanaService@newmarcorp.com and I would CC pstilley@newmarcorp.com as Phil does the scheduling and determines the number of days per what the warranty reps tell him.
