Sorry we had to bail on you Sacs - we just couldn't handle it any more. We stayed the night at the campground at Diamond Hill and I-5. A bit spartan, but had 50A service and water - things we have been without for the past 7 days

I was less than pleased with what happened at that facility. I am a guy that is all about fairness, and become a bit irritated when I feel like I have been slighted. I watched expensive coaches come and go all day long, being fixed and released. Talked to people that dropped in, just like myself. One guy in a Sig told me "yea, no big deal if they fix me or not. Was driving by, so I thought I would stop in to see if they could fix me up". He was out by the next morning. The clown at the desk said "well, some people come in with real emergencies, like water pumps and stuff. We have to get them fixed up quickly". I guess me living in a 95 degree coach, and having to work all day in that heat, isn't quite as important as someone's handle light, or possibly their remote for their TV being low on batteries...

So, after waiting around for four whole days and still never having spoken to a service writer, we got out of there. Made an appointment at a shop in Eugene, they saw us this morning and diagnosed the problem within 10 minutes. They are looking for a new A/C unit now.

So, doesn't look like we will make it to the 10 week mark of not having a front A/C. I am a bit sad about that, but Ang and Mal are pretty happy they won't have to live in a 95 degree house anymore

Have fun without us Sacs.

Wow...how frustrating...your rant was mild compared to what it could be...on the positive side however, you didn't kill or maim anyone..I suppose that's the good news

heh - I have learned to get ****** at only the situations I can actually do something about. When it is out of my hands, I tend to let someone else do the stressing (M*Momma is currently doing all my stressing for me. Thanks Momma )

On the brighter side, I am at Quality Coach Services now, they analyzed the problem within about 10 minutes of us arriving, and they have sent someone to go pick us up a new A/C unit! Very pleased right now. Looks like there will be a happy ending afterall.

Now, if I would have just figured this out 9 weeks ago...

As they say when it rains it pours. Drink wine and drive to drive to dryer weather thats why you have a MH. Probably the gutter on the windshield, use silicon lots of it.

Hey SACS ...tell them Why we bought it!!
We bought it for our son's wedding ... but the other parents bought some other $3 stuff (which was not good) so we had more than enough wine ... which meant we carried home more than enough 2BC !!

Life is good again...got home (we only drank 2 bottles of wine)....and I fired up the genie and the TV works fine. I just have to figure out where the water is coming in from...I'll do that on the road...As I said we had particularly heavy monsoon downpours all afternoon......there is nothing as much fun as trying to track a water leak
