AK.. I was quite happy to hear it was fixed in one day...but doubly disappointed that you are out of the area so quickly! We were looking forward to meeting the two of you along with the fur-kids! Sacs gets up here tomorrow. He is picking up pizza on his way in and I already have the beer...dang!

It is hard to justify spending $30 for a campsite that is only 30 minutes from where you are camping for free right now...but just look at where the dogs could have played!


Safe travels and have a great Turkey Day with your family!

PS.. call me anytime and I will walk you through the photo post after you get registered at the link I emailed you!

Have a great Thanksgiving to you and Sacs too.
I'm very sorry that we didn't meet.
That grassy area for the dogs looks great, but guess what? They got to play at Heceta Beach today. I have pictures, but I havn't been tutored yet.
We saw the lighthouse and a covered bridge too.
Thanks for being our tourguide.

Our Camelot had hairline cracks in all four corners that have just been repaired. According to Buddy Gregg MH, Monaco makes the fiberglass too thin in the corners, and therefore it's not uncommon to find these even into the Signature Series. It seems Monaco would increase the thickness to avoid this, but they seem to be happy to just have them fixed under warranty. In our case with cracks in all four corners, it took a full week of warranty work, but looks perfect now.

CC,
We are leaving Guaranty's Camping parking lot this morning. We just finished having our cracks repaired. This was the second trip up here to do that. Unfortunately, we still have two corners that have not cracked out and I wanted to jump on them so that they could get repaired with thicker fiberglass along with the others. The bodyshop manager wouldn't go for that though. He told me before when we were here the first time to not be surprised if I found more. Yup, we did. And now I may have more in the future. I sure hope not as this is getting OLD!! I'm glad to hear that you got all four corners fixed at one time.

Happy trails,

AKBrick

Hey MC,
I'm sorry to say that last fall our hard drive crashed with the pictures in it. However I do have some of this springs cracks but they are not that great and the one that is okay is not a corner crack, but I'm willing to bet you your coach against mine that it looks fairly similar to your corner cracks. It does to my last corner crack. I'll try getting it posted. I'm kinda under the weather and it's a little hard to think with a head full of snot, thanks to CheetahGirl. Uh...can I print that?

All right, here are the pictures of this springs cracks. Luckily CheetahGirl also found the original cracks we found in November in our e-mail archives! I'll get those posted soon also.
