That’s alright. I applied to be an ice cream engineer at Rocket Science. Sampling every one I make before I give it to the customer.

I'll be in Nappanee from the 16th thru the 24th watching the coach build and will have some time to kill over the weekend. Other than the RV museum are there highlights to see in the area? I'd be interested in any good RV accessory stores for those got to have items. LOL

Who's At Camp Newmar?

We visited Grissom Air Museum in Peru, IN. Not huge but they have some unique planes. If I remember it was about an hour south of Nappanee.

We enjoyed the Auburn Cord Duesenberg museum in Auburn. It's in the original factory showroom

Let us know the update on the new CG. I am due to arrive the 30th and haven't been sent the info yet from them, so not sure where to go.

Drove by the new campground today. Looks like the electrical needs to be installed, as well as lighting & pavement. Doesn't look like it will be completed this month.

Gents you are stressing over nothing. It has worked without much of a problem the way it is for over 20 years. Chill out it will be ok.

Grissom AFB is a good place to spend a day.

I'm curious as to the set-up of the dump station at CN.
We've been to the factory many times but it's always been a day trip from home and thus have never stayed overnight there.

Is the dump station accessible by a rig pulling a toad?
We may have occasions to dump while passing thru the area and wondered if we could slip in there with the toad attached.

Yes. It is directly across from the porch of the "old" customer lounge in the old full hookup area.

Not familiar with where the old customer lounge is located.
I'm trying to locate it on Google satellite but can't seem to identify it.

New CG at the Service Center

This is what the CG looks like today. The tour guides are saying it is to be ready by May, but I wound not count on it until late May. I am just hoping that it is done by June 10th when I pick up my new DS 4328. I have been here for almost a week to see my coach being built. It was # 1 into fab (building 7) on Thursday (4/11). It should be # 1 to paint on Tuesday.

The new morning factory tour is great! It starts in the Chassis/floor/basement fab building, then to building 7 (main fab/assembly) and then a few minutes in the paint building (lot of fumes). The tour ends up at the new service building (a drive through the building) and a walk through the lobbies and parts department. Wow what an incredible building!

Hi Pikkleballer,
It will be obvious when you get there. Go to the end of the aisle having the coaches back to back. The end near the building with the porch.
