I got a call from the body shop to pick up the rig, they completed fixing the windshield sealant and repainted the gold stripe. They were hoping I could take the rig home so their parking lot would be clear for the big snow storm we’re due to get tomorrow through Wednesday.
I spent a good portion of the day at the doctor’s office for tests but told them we would pick it up after I got home. By the time we got there the snow was coming down but the rig started perfectly and so did the generator. I checked out the propane tank and sure enough the valve was closed so I turned it on and then turned on the furnace. A few minutes later the heat was going and everything was looking up.
I drove the rig to the storage place and found…… our spot was covered knee deep in snow… so much for they’ll keep the spot clear. We call them and they tell us you’re in spot 19, you should have told us you would be taking your RV out of storage because then we would have had you in spot # 7 or around there. I explain to her we did tell her we would be removing the rig and indeed have several times with her knowledge of it. Her response, if that were the case then you wouldn’t be in spot # 19, I’m beside myself at this point but I keep a civil tone with her.
I tell her I can’t explain why she put us in spot 19 when normally she would put us in spot 7 because we aren’t involved with that part but it sure would be nice to be able to park our rig, tonight. So story told as short as possible we end up in spot 7, which is only partially plowed so now the rig sticks out about 10ft further than anything else in the row.
To end the night perfectly, the passenger mirror started flopping around in its mount on the way to storage, just wow. So much for them being repaired, honestly, at this point I think this rig is cursed, nothing else can explain it. Every time we pick it up, something else has to be repaired, even if it’s small and I’m starting to get a bit irritated that I now have to take it back AGAIN to get something that was supposed to be repaired, repaired again.
I called the RV dealer and told them to kill the deal, I was put on a new expensive drug today so we can’t afford a more expensive rig. I’m going to take a few days away from here, I got somewhat bad news at the doctors office and it seems I only post about negative things because this past year there hasn’t been much positive to post about.
I am glad for the following to try and end this post on a positive note. I am glad I have my job, I am glad the only thing wrong with the RV is a loose mirror (that I know about). I’m glad they fixed the windshield gaskets and the gold stripe on the front end. I’m glad the generator starts right away and the furnace works.
I hope everybody gets through the storm safely and I’ll post back in a few days. Sorry for the negativity folks.
