It looks as though we are finally going to join you folks and become an owner. We are in the process of buying a great '99 Alpine in FL. The question is would we be better served in taking the coach to a Cummins dealer in the Tampa area for the annual service or would Lazy Days (LD) be sufficient? We had planned on going to LD anyway to take their driving course prior to bringing the coach north. Any comments/suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello & Welcome Gary:

Congratulations on your purchase of the Alpine. For my $0.02 I would take the coach to Cummins make sure it is a coach care facility as the can work about anything. I take the Alpine to a RV service center for the rest of the coach. You will find that the Alpine drives and stops like a car. Just remember where the front goes the rear follows.

Hope to see you at an Alpine Coach Association (ACA) Rally or and Alpine Chapter Rally.

Dave

Don't bother with filling the propane tank down south and then trying to go north. A lot of time they blend butane in and it does not vaporize at freezing temperatures. Good luck with the Alpine and keep us informed on your adventures and experiences.

I would go with Cummins Southeastern Power. I took mine in on a Friday, with no appointment, and they were done with it Tuesday. Try that with your rv dealer.

I used the one in Orlando, but if memmory serves me correctly, I think there is one in Tampa, also.
