FINALLY.....the original company that made the Sylvania microwaves had shutdown/gone bankrupt or whatever...reopened under another name and was finally contacted and said yes, they could supply a microwave (Sunbeam) for the dimensions required for my rig. Seems my RV guy just didn't make the extra effort to shop around and so now I'll have the smaller unit..as a 'spare' I guess and the correct unit will come out of pocket $$$.
The frustrating thing is after months with the leaking galley tank, the RV guy with much grumbling convinced the company he ordered the tank from (and got a blank and instead of sending it back tried to place the fittings himself and thus it continued to leak...now he is stating he will have to be paid labor to put the new tank in and will also "charge for dropping the belly" and "other incidental charges."
Never, ever had I been charged for any repair to drop the belly, that is just part of the job...so I see a new battle on the horizon with this guy. He has already cut holes in the belly (as stated in previous posts) and NOW he decides to do it correctly (undoing the bolts) and then charge for it!!!!
I will be glad when I see his dust disappearing over the horizon for good!!
Now begins the search for a reliable service..if one exists.
I'm still tempted to submit a report to the BBB and see what their response is. He charged $600.00 for and hour and a half on the roof to slap some sealer around, which he said he'd return each year and do for $65.00. (ummm initially $600 and then only $65.00???)
Any one ever replaced the belly of their rig and how much did it cost? Was it done by dealer or can owner of rig pick it up and take it to RV's site to replace? Or should I not agonize and look for a specialized tape or some such thing to patch up the much abused belly already in place???
