This will all work out once the new camp ground opens up. Then you will get a code to get into the the CG and not be able to arrive earlier than the day before and stay the night of the last day - once you drive out you can't get back in.
What is the window tag? My scheduled appointment is on September 13th which is right before the SC shuts down for some reason. I plan on being there on September 12th and leaving on September 14th.

When you made the appointment, you should have gotten a service brochure with the info about your appointment. There is a window tag included in that.

I never got anything. I was supposed to get an email, but I did not get it either.

I would follow up and ask them to resend the email. It has to go through two sources - the scheduler and the confirmation from the service department.

We had three attachments to our confirmation email - the brochure with window tag, the list of things to be done, and a "cover" letter.

I suppose it's possible that since your appointment is short they didn't think it necessary. But I would give a call.

If you're traveling, I would suggest finding a rest area along the way and give a call. I didn't consider my appointment "confirmed" until I received my email with attachments.

Yes, the other good suggestion is checking spam or junk folder.

There are plenty of CGs in the area and things to do if one arrives in the area ahead of schedule or wishes to stay after their appointment is closed.

You have a Wednesday appointment start day. The beginning of the week is the most difficult to find a spot. Usually the weekend is your best bet to find a spot.
Thanks for the replies

You mean "e"mailed. They don't mail (USPS) anything. The window tag is just some text on a sheet of paper. I think the tech swaps it out for a yellow tag when he get there.

Houston we have a problem!

I am parked about 6-8 spots down from the outgoing gate in overflow. I've mentioned we've been getting a lot of rain here - where is the road?



This is the person next to me - something tells me he needs to get the leveling disc adjusted - he ain't level. I'm in more water than him and my front is about a foot higher than his (yes I am close to level, with a little slope toward the front)



I put my shorts and flip flops on and waded to my jeep which was against the fence in front of my coach (see above pic). I pulled it up next to the coach all the way to the rear.
People toward the overflow exit gate were not in the water (they're vehicles were but not as bad as mine).
More rain is expected.
