Gotta mention the bad knees, bad back, bad eyes, and surly attitude. Because of that I'll pay some younger guy to handle the wrenching stuff for me. What's retirement for anyway? Working? or relaxing while someone else works?
Then get used to...


1. Park it over there and we'll get to it in a few weeks.


2. We don't work on RVs.


3. Watching someone pour oil in the trans tube.

Have never needed to wait more then a few days for service because these machines I've owned seemed to be able to limp a few dozen miles to an RV park where I normally arrange for a mobile tech or some young guy in the park to work on things for me. One time I had Coachnet haul me 55 miles to a diesel shop but that's the only time over 18 years of full time RV'ing I asked for that sort of thing, ended up happening twice. The shop I had the RV towed to hired a drunk to work on the Cummins head and the work he did damaged it again, I got 8 miles away and the engine seized up...so back it went.

I did have that dummy that poured oil in the ATF fill tube but caught him just in time. Ended up getting a free tranni dump and fill and free oil change. Exactly why I sort of hang around the shops that I do go to so I can observe.

The one shop I went to that wouldn't allow anyone to see what they were doing? The Winnebago Service Dept. in Forest City, IA. Annndddd they screwed up several things, which I found out days later. I'll never go back there for sure.

Yep...


Because inherently someone will read this and wished they had read it sooner (be in that very position).
