Yes, things are happening and we are getting our Castle fixed up. Yesterday we had our new leveling jack system installed and some structural welding and reinforcement done. The technician who worked with us gave us a tutorial on the new jacks, and we think they are going to be a lot better for us. He also explained that for several years, the materials and engineering for the structural support of the coaches was not really adequate and they’ve had quite a few coaches that needed this reinforcement.
Today we went back into a regular repair bay and the techs did a lot of adjusting on our slides and compartment doors. They also replaced a piece of trim that was slightly damaged last year when the new slide floor was installed. We still need to have the mechanics check our air system and ride height. Then the last item on the list is replacing a cracked floor tile.
We are hoping to be back on the road soon!
Meanwhile, we’ve been staying busy. Yesterday, while the welders and techs were working on the Castle, we took the dogs and drove up to Florence, Alabama for a quick stop at Bed, Bath and Beyond to replenish our coffee supply. After a stop for lunch at Chick-fil-A and a stop for Jim to pick up something or other at Home Depot we were back in Red Bay by early afternoon. Sylvia and Glenn came over for happy hour and the four of us went to the local pizza place for salad and pizza for dinner.
Then it was back to our level, stable Castle for a little TV and a good night's sleep.
