bap,
thanks we will look at it tomorrow.

I might be wrong but I think you are the turkey hunter. Here is a pic of my brothers turkeys. Also 4 of the 12 pups he had. All gone now. I'm taking the easy way out by posting all at once.
I have some more but have to load them up. I also found a bunch of Morels mushrooms growing in the wild at his place, we marinated them in olive oil and garlic. The Picture is his smaller garden but it's packed with over 40 different garlics.
Not my boat but wish it was it looks good behind my 64.

Lynne, on your window repair, if you paid with a credit card you can contact them and dispute the bill. You will need documentation to give them but that should work.

Lynne, sorry on the shoddy repair! I would not take it back to them, and would take it to a reputable shop in the Elkhart area! Let them fix it right, document everything, them send the documents and the bill to the first shop with a letter from your lawyer! Take lots of close-up pictures! How I would handle it! Rail!

Morning All,

Coffee is good this AM. Cloudy out today so not sure what we are going to get. Rain last night.

The good news on the MH is that we de-winterized it and NO LEAKS! Considering this was our first time winterizing, we were a bit concerned. Whew! Thanks Frank, you told us we could do it. Got the inside all cleaned and ready for use.

Rail, We are going to down to Elkhart on the 6th for the windshield replacement. Thank God we didn't have this place do it! Jerry and I plan to have them check it out and hopefully fix it. We talked about the attorney and making them pay for the repair so that may be the route we take.

I wish we had more repair knowledge, but this was to big a project for us. Although at this point, I don't think we could have done a worse job than the so called professionals.
I am afraid they are going to have to take the window back out to put the track in. Otherwise, I don't think it will be right. Jerry's friend Bob told him he didn't get any repairs done in MI, he went to Elkhart. Now we know why.

Ron, paid cash. They had discounted us $140. due to the time frame they had the rig but we have all receipts. Original work order, and payment with price difference.

Otherwise, we work on the dolly hitch today. Got all parts, just got to hook it up and go for a test drive. What is a good caulk to use around the window frames? We need black.

Hope you all have a nice day wherever you are and whatever you are doing. Lynne

Lynne,
I knew that you and Jerry could winterize her without problems, you just needed someone to show you the proper way and place. I am sorry that your window didn't get fixed properly. I also get very frustrated when you pay someone to do a job and they do shoddy work. When I had the new seal put in the bedroom slide, the guy that did it usually does excellent work, but I ended up having to redo the bottom seal, because it came loose.
As for the caulking, usually the window frame has the caulking put on it, then installed, they use a strip of caulk, not out of a tube(something like rope caulk, but flat). If you have a window that is leaking, this is the best way to eliminate the leak.
Frank

Lynne - Sorry about the issues. There are some things that never go right. It is entirely possible the shop was working outside of it's comfort zone on the window and messed up trying to rush.

Will you post a picture of the window issue? It will give us a better idea of what a temporary solution might be.

Sorry, should have re-read the post before I replied. I was referring to the side windows.

side window repair

Good Morning All,

Neal, it is the side window. Passenger side dbl pane window lost it's seal. Took it in April 27th and just got it back Thursday after much complaining about time frame.

There is a seam that is sealed from when Winnebago made the system and installed it. They cut the frame at this point to take out the bad window to replace it. Put it back together, didn't reseal the seam area. Just left it open and there is a small spot where you can see outside and it looks crappy.

When we picked it up I just wanted the rig back and even though I noticed it I thought, I could fix it. At this point, I will fix it to keep the water out. We are going down to Elkhart next week to get a windshield replaced. Glad I didn't have this company do it. Will check with people in Elkhart about fixing the problem and see if they have a track for the window.

Here is a pick of the seem and spot where you can see outside. Good news is that we have the Prius loaded on the dolly and are going for a test drive this AM. One of us will follow with the truck to make sure everything is running fine. Then we are set for some long trips. Have a good day.

Lynne

Good Morning Gang,
Pepper2,
Thanks, for the tip on Butyl putty tape, I couldn't remember what it was called.
Lynne,
A couple ways to seal the gap. you could use a good grade of RV caulk(not the self leveling kind that you use on the roof) or a more permanent way would be to use JB weld and then sand it down smooth and a small brush to paint to match the rest of the trim. A little time and your problem is solved. I am conserned with the dip in the rubber gasket that shows behind the cut, it looks like it is not sealed on the bottom of the glass.
Have a great day all, and many thanks to all those that have served so that we have the freedoms to live this lifestyle,
Frank

Lynne - Definitely not a stellar replacement.

I think the glass is sealed within itself. Bobby would be the go to guy on this topic. I would send the picture to him to get his valued opinion.

On a happier note. Started taking down some birch trees. They have aged and are dying. I am getting lots of firewood from them but lots of work. Thank goodness it is windy and rainy today so I get a day off!

Hope everyone has a great day.

With a heavy heart and a reverend bow to the memory of all those who served our country and gave the ultimate sacrifice, for without those selfless few the many would not enjoy the freedoms that we have.....

I for one cannot give enough thanks for our military from all the wars and conflicts or "police" actions....I tip my hat and bow my head to the families who have lost loved ones protecting our freedoms....

Coffee is great this morning...I actually was able to hook up the 5er and take it on a short trip to get it inspected....bout a 2 hour round trip...felt great to stretch her legs...

Well everyone enjoy the day be safe and take care and most of all enjoy life..

Mk
