PTO happy ending, new drive axle shocks not so much

We purchased our 2005 Allure from the original owner in September 2014. We full timed for four months but were pretty much stationary. After two months at
Complete RV in Denver, NC for a major remodel, I finally dropped it off at Truck Tech in Charlotte, NC Wednesday for a complete driveline service, PTO wet kit and to have six new Road King shocks installed. When I asked the original owner about the PTO I got the deer in the headlights stare, so it had never been checked. I went ahead and ordered the wet kit and crossed my fingers. At 52000 miles, the splines were next to perfect and swimming in grease. A great big thanks to whoever on the line put it together. The original radiator is still in it too with no leaks, fingers crossed on that as well.

The mechanic called me this afternoon and was baffled about the driveline shock mountings. After a call to Doug at Premier RV Services in Junction City, it's been determined that the shock mounting bolts were installed backwards at Country Coach and can't be removed without removing the brakes.

It seems that one assembly line guy was on his game, the other guy apparently was suffering from cranial anal disease.

55000 miles on my coach and the PTO is just fine. Next time in the shop I'll have it checked and regreased, as necessary, again. My radiator is perfectly fine, as well.
