We went to Hillsboro yesterday to do the walk through and seal the deal on the 2000 Ultimate Advantage.

Arrived about noon and were greeted with on outdoor BBQ sponsored by the dealership which was great beacause we were thinking that we had missed lunch. After eating hamburgers, potato salad and chips we met with Chuck for the walk through.

Chuck was very knowledgable and was a great teacher. He made sure we knew everything about all the systems on the MH and answered all our questions. We found a couple of cleaning issues and an awning that needed a replacement part. He put a crew to cleaning the overlooked areas and will order the needed parts.

We then sat down with the finance mgr, Ralph. He was great. No pressure to purchase the add-ons. We signed all the papers, wrote the check and shock hands.

We then pulled our toad behind the UA to hookup and drive our new baby home. Hooked up fine and secured all items to include ourselves, we were ready for the 2hr drive home. Started the coach waited for air to build......waited for air to build....waited..waited. The air would not build up pass 70 pounds. I checked to ensure the air dump valve was not on..ok. Still not enough pressure. I got out of the coach and could hear air escaping from behind the front right wheel. I am sure it was the air dump valve for the airbags not closing. I got Chuck out there and he tried opening a closing the air dump from the drivers seat but it still leaked (I wouldn't have been satisfied had it closed for him). He said, "Monday we will fix it". The manager was very sorry for us and offered to deliver the coach to us when it was repaired. I thanked him and said, "Stuff happens". Better here today then on the road going home or on our first trip to Bend, scheduled for this coming Wednesday. I'll travel to them to pick up the UA because I want to make sure of the repairs, I only trust my mother.

So, unhook the toad, gather up my disappointed wife and wave good-bye to our new baby. I'll post the results later.

Picked up the UA today. Turned out there wasn't anything wrong except proceedure in storing the jacks. I am surprised and *&%$# that Chuck couldn't figure that out on Saturday.

Full steam ahead and **** the torpedos, we're off to Bend on Wednesday.

That Chuck . . . I think he may have worked at my dealer, too!

Good luck with your new rig.
