Hi everyone,
Well we brought the Cheetah to the Guaranty service center in Junction City for a couple of hours so they can diagnose some problems we have been having.

They fixed our Trimark Keyless entry problem by "DUH", putting in a new fuse. Beaudry couldn't figure that one out even though I told them of the possibility and ordered a new Trimark module which they could not figure out how to wire so they skipped that project.

Within 5 minutes while showing the service rep our rig he figured out why there was a water leak into our utility bay when we were traveling in the rain. It is because there is a five by four inch square hole in the rear drivers side wheel well that opens into the utility bay and one on the front drivers wheel well that opens into the storage bay. The wheels throw the water right into the bays. They will fix that problem in a snap. All of this time I thought that it had to do with the slide seal. SacsTC, I think you should check your wheel wells. I think your the one who said you were getting water in your bays too. Look up into the top left of the wheel well in the back and the top right of the wheel well in the front.

It sounds like everything on our list of problems since we bought it, and that cropped up later will be resolved. We may even have a problem free motorhome by the time we get out of Oregon.

Tomorrow the coach goes into the bodyshop to get the roof cracks repaired. After that is complete we will hang around Oregon for awhile until the coach goes back in to get the rest of the buggaboos taken care of. I'm really feeling good about all of this. We'll have the coach finished before the summertime! Yippee!!!!
We'll keep you all informed.

AKBrick, Welcome to our humble abode. Wait a minute! What am I thinking?! This is not home! Just because we've been here soooo long, I'm beginning to think this is the destination. BUT on a positive note, Guaranty RV here in <STRIKE>Guaranty</STRIKE> <STRIKE>City</STRIKE> Junction City is making great progress and doing a fine job. The flooring is about half done, then a day in the paint buffing shop, then a new fuel tank sensor, then I think we'll be done. Day 17 and counting.

Hi Mic,
Why am I typing this? Your sitting right in front of me in Guaranty's lounge.
They just took our motorhome. It looks like they will have to take off our awning, rivited rail and all to get to one of our cracks. No biggie, they've done it before.
First day and counting..tick,tick,tick......

Well, good news, the crack doesn't go behind the awning rail and Guaranty won't have to take off the awning after all. We should be out of here in a couple of days.
Yesterday we went to the movie "Ironman" with GoneFishn and Fishbum. Great movie and a good way to kill some time. Today we may get a few computer lessons from Fishbum.

Monoco has approved all of our problems mechanical and body wise that needs to be addressed by Guaranty. The future looks great for a problem free coach for a little while BEFORE the warrenty runs out!!

Hi all,
Just a quick update; Guaranty finished our crack fix a 1/2 day early yesterday. Today we're going to stay just one more day to chill out in our new again (and clean) motorhome before going down to Rogue River, OR. We'll be hanging out at "The Valley of the Rogue" state rv park for a week before going up to Newport, OR for a freebie four night stay at Outdoor Resort. Guaranty gave us that stay for buying the MH from them. They actually own one of those sites there. From there we will go back to Coburg, OR and have some warrenty work done. Then everything will be complete from our list.

Happy trails all,

AKBrick
