Today I am taking our coach to Sicards RV to have our slide out motor replaced. So up early and on the road at 6:30 am, Suzie gonna grab her stuff and stay here at the farm make some phone calls, putter about and take care of Omer.
Once I hit the road heading east I noticed this huge red ball in the sky, so amazing this sunrise that was coming over the horizon. I took so many pictures but they do not do it justice, maybe the dirty windshield had something to do with it?
Past experience at RV dealers for work tells it's usually a long day, so no need for the two of us to go and hang out there. I arrived at 8 am and was greeted by Jon and Rick at the service counter. They have made a lot of changes since were last here. Only called a week ago for service and had an appointment for today. Last time it was at least a month to get in for service.
They now have the service technicians working there 12 hours a day 7 days a week! And they do know their stuff. Sure makes a big difference.
Arrived at 8 and by 8:15 am the mechanic took our coach to his service bay. I had some free coffee, read my book for a bit, cruised the store looking at too expensive accessories (cheaper n the US.) and checked all the fancy new coaches on the lot that we will not buy, ours is perfect.
Now expecting that I would be there all day was very surprised when I was paged at 10:30 am our coach is done and I am ready to go! Ok now I am impressed with the quick service and to top it off we were given a 15% discount from the quoted price, (note sure why? now gonna argue thats for sure) saved almost $200.00 on the total bill.
Seeing as I was there just had to stop by and visit with Larry Vanstone (the Amazing Vanstones) had a very nice chat to catch up. Now he sold us our coach in 2006 and we became friends, travelled to Mexico with them in 2009 and have met up with them on the road on Texas, Arizona and Ontario. Larry and Marilyn are fulltime rvers too but he just can't quite retire yet, he has too much fun selling rv's in the summer part time, think he makes a couple bucks too while he is having all that fun.
|no Larry we don't need another coach, |
just gonna fix this one
Now I was back home at the farm in the early afternoon, got set back up, a quick errand to the store them gonna whip up supper tonight. The consensus and Sandys craving tonight was salmon with dill sauce (recipe on the recipe tab above) and I added some vegetable fried rice and a tossed salad.
|ready for the oven|
|dinner's ready !|
|yep it even tasted pretty good too, leftovers for lunch|
Thats it, a very busy and productive day, coach is ready to go, but now its getting dark we can relax for a bit.
Thanks for dropping by.
