I feel like I'm talking to you all, while I'm typing my posts. Somehow it gives me a voice, and when things are good, I can share my happiness; when things aren't going so well, I can whine or rant, and once I've hit "publish," I feel better. So, I thank you all for reading my blog posts, and making me feel like part of a large family of people who care. : )
Okay, here it is:
I was at Quality Coach Services in Eugene, OR at 8:30 sharp, and Jason got started right away on the laundry list of things that needed to be done, small things, as well as the installation of a new wired back-up camera and three roof vent covers, and replacement of my toilet bowl seal (which wouldn't hold water in the bowl), and repairing my bathroom fan (that Camping World said they "don't repair, they just replace" them. They would have charged me to take out the old fan, the price of the new fan, and installation of the new fan.) Jason just switched out the fan switch.
I love the camera, I had never seen one in action before, and it's exactly what I needed. I was originally going to get a wireless camera, but changed my mind and had a wired one installed. Jason said it's pre-wired in case I want to get the side cameras that show the blind spot on each side behind the passenger and driver's doors. I didn't want to pay extra for those, but if I decide in the future that I want them, it will be easier and cheaper to install them.
I wasn't sure what Katie and I would do all day, and maybe part of tomorrow, but they have a comfortable couch in the office reception area, a plug for my computer, and Internet that I could connect to. I brought in some snacks and water, my computer and Katie's bed. It was a little chilly first thing in the morning, so I got our quilt and put that over her in the bed, and she burrowed down, completely covered, and slept most of the morning.
I was expecting to have to come back tomorrow, which would have been okay, but fortunately Jason finished the entire job by 3:30, and I was back on the road to the RV park.
Everything was fixed and installed, and my total bill was more than $200 less than the original estimate, which made me doubly happy. Jason and Robert, the co-owners of Quality Coach Services, were both great to work with, and I would highly recommend this company if you need any repairs or installs and are in the area. (541-343-1120) They are also rated A+ with BBB.
That was about it for our day. We got home around 4:00, and amazingly I was really tired, and Katie was, too. After sitting all day. I was even too tired to take Katie for a walk. It sure is nice to have everything working, and the installs done! And tomorrow is another day.
Here's my new map - Thanks Rick! - Since I've only been in two states with The Palms, I gussied it up a bit. It was pretty sad looking just plain. I'll have three when I cross into Washington.
From Me and My Dog, have a great Thursday night, everyone! : )
