Stupid dealer service tricks . . .

. . . . or things that make you say "Really?"
Being just a seasoned RV newbie, up to this point most of my vehicle service experience has been with cars. I remember my daughter saying the Pontiac Service writer told her ALL Sunfire breaks squeal, I told her to ask if her Mom's friend should have her Sunfire checked out because her brakes don't squeal . . .
Up until now, that was my go to story.
That has changed! We are having cabinets repaired in our 2012 Winnie Sightseer, when they repaired the cabinets surrounding the fridge, they had to remove the fridge, and, of course, the outside access panels. they put them back, of course . . .Really?
Can't wait to hear the excuse for this one!

That's the new 2013 look. I guess they didn't fill you in. I'd leave it like that as a conversation piece.

That would be a dealer that should be added to the list "only go there if all the other places for service burnt down".

"What you need there is a complete new paint job. If you're lucky, they'll only have to paint the curbside. If the color doesn't match, they'll need to fade it into the front and rear." -- typical service writer response.

Look at the paint pattern. They aren't the same as the coach.

You may want to look at the picture again.
Now switch the places of the door panels.

Didnt think the panel colors matched....that's why I asked if they were even yours. Should've taken my sunglasses off first.

Look at it again Swapped top to bottom.

But still they should never send work like this out ever. I hope they did a better job on the inside.
