When I took Homer in for engine work I told them that we HAD to have it back that night. No place else is Sena proof. When it needed an extra part we came back the next day and they completed the job. I realize that body work is a different game, but this keeping an RV for months is ridiculous!

Ok, Iíll step down off the soapbox now.
So the MH goes into the shop for 3 repairs. They start on one, find out it needs a part and order it. Part comes in and they fix it. Next they work on the next item. It needs a part - same scenario. Next is the last item to repair and hopefully it is one that is not as difficult as the first two. They start on it. Find out it needs a small part. Order the part. Part comes in but now they have other units to work on and this small repair has to wait a week.


Sound familiar?

WWe have provincial insurance ( no choice) and the adjuster is questioning every part purchase saying the repair place have to source provincially. I am thinking of calling and telling the insurance company to get another adjuster on the case.

Bollard is just a fancy name for those concrete filled steel pipes you see sticking up around gas pumps, ATM's and other places where your vehicle is really not supposed to go...

Dave, you know for sure that you can lead a horse to water, you can drown it, but you can't make it drink the water. I can tell you stories about the stop sign at the end of our street. Well, maybe I can't or shouldn't.
