I feel kind of stupid. Took me several looks, and reading several posts, to finally figure it out. Now, my question is, are you going to trust them to swap them back?

The service manager's attention to detail should be rewarded -- with another job. The mechanic is dim, but the SM should have checked his work and caught it.

Yeah, the "tech" swapped the panels. Now I really freaked out till I eventually looked up and saw the other one. But, how does this even happen? Even if your color blind you should be able to line up the pattern! There were a lot of other issues with their work this trip. This was just funny, the other issues are not!

Expect to see more of this kind of problem in WA and CO in the future.

I always figured it was to hide them from German U-boats.

Did you check to see if they installed the refrigerator right side up?

BFlinn, service managers typically do not QC vehicles in for work. If a facility does actually have a specified person for QC...its usually the service writer or a QC specific person.
A service manager has far more than enough on his daily plate to consume thus not allowing time to QC every vehicle in for repairs.

Bluepill, your exactly right! What is wrong with those 2 states for even allowing such nonsense???

Sorry, I don't know the job description of everyone in a Service center. I just know that such an obvious mistake should have been caught by someone before the bill was written or presented. If the Service Manager is too busy, he soon won't be and will have time to pay attention to quality control.

As to Washington and Colorado, I guess they're tired of sending minor drug offenders to prison where they can learn real criminal behavior and decided to develop a new revenue stream. While I don't use or condone the use, I certainly think the real crime (and expense) has been in making it a crime.

No, but they are ultimately responsible for the work that comes out of their department, like any other manager. If the work that comes out is shoddy, if the RV is dirtier than when it arrived, if nobody calls, EVER, that falls squarely on the SM's shoulders.
I brought in a 3 page list this morning, with pics covering everything that was wrong with coach, I discussed the issues in detail with the service writer and the parts guy directly outside the service managers office, he didn't get out of his chair to see what was going on, and, no, he was not on the phone.

You would be a fool to bring it back for them to swap them out........they may do more damage to the doors than it's worth.......simple job plus it might take them all day figure out how to do the swap.

I took our rig in to have a new awning installed and paint touch up. Rainstorm in CA got it. Just over $4000 in damage.
Got it back and found:
1. the awning doesn't extend correctly.
2. side docking light hanging by the wires inside the fender.
3. Furnace cover had been removed and replaced, screws just barely hand tight. Now that's not much of a problem EXCEPT it's on the opposite side of the RV from where the awning and paint work was done! Still can't figure out why the took it off.
