Tiffin Service

We got a knock on the door at 11 a.m. this morning telling us to move our coach to Bay 8 as soon as possible. This is an Express Bay and generally limited to 3 hours. But since we got it there shortly after 11, they worked on it until closing at 3 p.m. We now have a new windshield, new blinds, a new control box for the electonic levelers (they weren't working quite right), and a couple other things I cannot recall. Terry asked the guy for a couple parts for things he could fix himself, and they gave them to him. And Monday before we got here, we had the bathtub crack fixed along with the front generator hatch panel which needed beefed up a bit. So it has been a productive trip even though they worked us in without an appointment.

We still have more to do, but will wait on that stuff until we come back in June for the Pace reunion, held just 30 miles from here. We are keeping our service number so we should be first on the list when we return.

We are staying through the weekend and plan on visiting some relatives tomorrow. Right now the county we are in is under a tornado watch. They have a community room in which we can meet for shelter from the storm but they told us we cannot take our pets. I don't know anyone who will plan to go if they have to leave their pets behind. We actually were supposed to get storms starting last night, but so far all we have had are some clouds and lots of wind. Nothing devastating yet, but will keep tuned to the weather channel.


Till next time. . .

It sounds to me like you guys were very fortunate to get all t hat work done. Am glad for you and glad that so far you have missed the storms. Keep an eye on them if you head North which I know you will. See you soon Mom

We are dodging storms tonight. One right after another. They won't let dogs in the shelter house, so no one is going. The shelter is just the customer lounge in the big steel building and Terry said that's not safe anyway. We have our slides in and the power unhooked, but just sitting tight.

Been worrying about you guys all afternoon! Please stay safe!

We're trying, Patti. So far just a lot of lightning, rain, thunderstorms, and lots of threats and warnings. It's still a little hairy. Our driver's window is leaking like a sieve. Found out the windows were defective and they are about to replace them all when they get the new ones ready. Until then, we are going to have to do something to keep the water at bay. This is the first hard rain we've been in.
