Lindsay Hargett, thank you

There is no doubt that many of our Alpine Coach group have their own “Lindsay Hargett Stories;” and I’d like to relate my most recent. Several days ago I submitted to this forum a problem I encountered with our coach relating to the AC electrical power being only partially available to various outlets or appliances when utilizing shore power. The generator was able to power all AC circuits.

Within twenty minutes of submitting this problem on our forum I received a call from Lindsay stating that he had already contacted one of their Master Technicians at Guaranty, Junction City, OR and between them they thought they had the answer to the problem. They were quite sure that the anomaly was in the transfer relay circuitry in the Surge Guard. They were absolutely correct as were Dale, Mike, Bob and others who also came to the rescue with their analysis of the problem. Once again I extend a big thank you to all for your support.

Lindsay continues to be the unsung hero of our Alpine Coach group and he definitely deserves to be recognized for the individual effort and care he has extended to his customers through the years and continues to do so. He personally has a wealth of information concerning our coaches; and if he doesn’t have an answer to a technical question he will always do his best to find one. He also should be acknowledged for his continued support of our local and national Alpine Coach groups. His efforts here have been nothing short of fantastic. Now that we are all owners of an “Orphan Coach” it’s reassuring to know that Lindsay’s loyalty can always be depended upon.

We bought our new 2006 Alpine from Lindsay in Yuma, February 2007. Even before we signed the final paperwork he said, “Remember, I’ll always be there for you.” We thought, “Yeah, sure, sounds typical of the usual salesman just before you sign on the dotted line and hand over the money.” Well folks, Lindsay is not just your usual salesman; he really is a very special person. He has been there for us on more than one occasion; and we’re sure he will still be there in the future. He is truly a man of integrity who cares about his customers. But more than that, Susan and I feel fortunate and honored to call Lindsay our friend.

Lindsay (and Rich) did a lot for Alpine Socal over the years.

If I had any regrets about buying our Alpine Coach, it would be that I didn't buy it from Lindsay. My excuse is because I didn't know him at the time. Next time I will know better, and go to him.

You are absolutely correct about both Lindsay and Rich. Susan and I call them the "Rally Twins." They are the greatest. I'm sure if Rich had been in Yuma when we bought ours we would have been equally impressed with his service. We really enjoy Rich's newsletters, very informative. We're heading up to Junction City in September for some routine maintenance and are looking forward to visiting with both of these gentlemen. The only problem will be resisting the temption to let them sell us a new coach. Our best excuse is that the new coaches have a 13' + height and my airplane hangar is only 12'. Knowing these two they would probably sell me a new hangar for only a few extra dollars. Such a deal...

Lindsay came to say Hi at the Gold Country rally in Plymouth, CA in May. He brought booze.
