American Revolution update

Greetings to all my IRV2 friends. I've been off line most of the last month. Most of it we were traveling. First to North Carolina to pick up the new coach, then to our RV property in upper South Carolina.

We spent a week at Tom Johnson's Camping Center in Marion NC. This gave us some time to get familiar with all the new to us systems and the dealer techs were very responsive in trying to correct those things we found needing attention. Unfortunately not everything found can be dealt with at the dealer level and we continued to find issues over the next two weeks, right up until we got home. I'll be making a pilgrimage to Decatur IN sometime next spring to have our laundry list addressed. Its too bad the industry, as a whole, is apparently content with the sorry state of quality control and has no problem letting the customer take on the burden of 'helping' them get it right.

That said, we are thrilled with our color and decor choices. The rig is absolutely beautiful and the full wall slide is amazing. We will have no problem making this 'home'. I also like driving it and not having to worry about overtaxing the drive train on those mountain climbs.

I'm attaching a few photos taken soon after we took delivery. Unfortunately, these will be the last for a while. The rig is now in its winter hibernation, not to be revived before late March, or April. Hopefully this is my last winter spent in Wisconsin. The house goes up for sale in 2011.

Happy Hollidays!

I just commented yesterday to Dave that I hadn't seen a post from Jay lately & was wondering if you were enjoying your new AC. She sure is a beauty. Yes, it is a shame QC lets things slide & the buyer is the one having to take time to get thing fixed that never should've left the factory that way.

I see the pups sure seem to have made themselves at home.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I 'made' the ottoman, well, sort of. I bought the covered 'basket' base at World Market and made the upholstered top for it. I've got another matching basket in the basement and enough material to make another cushion and I think I will do so. This rig has plenty of room for two. They also provide additional storage, in our case for books and magazines.

Love the ottoman. The coach looks great, you all are going to really enjoy FT soon.

I have to laugh when I saw your two terriers up on top of the couch. I have two corgis (about the same size as yours) who do the same thing.

Did you get a chance to try Tom Johnson's little resturant at the campground. We were surprized, it was pretty decent.

Hopefully all the bugs will get worked out and you are able to really enjoy that coach!

We took advantage of the on-site cafe a couple times. Very convenient and not bad, especially for the price. The most expensive item on the menu was always their 'special' - $6 for, as example, a hamberger 'steak', mashed potatoes and gravy, a veggie, salad and a dinner roll. The taco salad was pretty good too. It's no 5 star, but not bad.
