2018/06/29 - Installed 2 Pull Strap Catches that now allow the driver's side awning to be positioned into three places. I only needed 2 catches so I have 6 extras. Click here to see the prior, single connection.
2018/06/25 - Ordered and received  8 each Pull Strap Catches from Carefree Colorado. Cost $67.76. They are used to attach the awning's strap to the coach. Click here to see details.
2018/05/16 - Manny Pelayo installed a new awning over the drivers side windows. The old awning was showing lots of wear. This completes the projects Manny started on May 4th. Click here to see the work done on the 4th. Total cost for all the work was $865.85. Affordable Mobile RV Service. Cell: 541-343-3492.
2018/05/10 - Lance Thorne of Advanced Satellite stopped by to help me with the coach's surround sound audio system. His dad, Cal, installed the latest DirecTV system on November 2nd, 2015 while I was in Indio, CA at Rancho Casa Blanca. Click here to see that installation. Lance was most helpful. Now I have a nice surround sound audio system.  Phone: 541-607-8968.

2018/05/10 - Last year I had the motor coaches' tires aligned by TEC Equipment. Brian Clark did the work. Mike Spurgeon, Service Advisor, handled the paper work. Click here to see the work done last year. After alignment last year the coach seemed to always pull to the right. Today Brian fixed that. They performed the work at no charge. We test drove the coach on the I-5 freeway. The coach no longer pulls to the right - the alignment is now good. Unfortunately the Vigia system was not attached to the rear tires and consequently the Vigia connectors were damaged. They repaired and returned on June 14th. Click here to see the damaged and repaired Vigia connectors.

2018/05/09 - Jeff Schauer of Mid-Lane Truck & Equipment Repair simplified the diesel fuel filter process. He eliminated a number of components that were unnecessary and known to fail. Jeff also checked the engine and generator. I have driven the coach only 2300 miles since the last full service so I did not need to have the engine fully serviced - just checked. Total cost $430.82. I have used Mid-Lane a number of times in the past. Very processional and highly recommended. Call Ben Needham, General Manager, at 541-345-7570 if your coach needs service.

Before and After
2018/05/04 - Manny Pelayo performed a number of service items on the motor coach. Including replacing the thermostats. They were giving incorrect readings. He also serviced the Hydro-Hot system. Other items: 1. The refrigerator was not cold enough, 2. He showed me how to force the air to dump from the coach by repeatedly pressing the coach's brake, and 3. The dining room table fastener had broken. He is ordering a new window awning for the driver's side slide out. He is a true professional. Affordable Mobile RV Service. Cell: 541-343-3492. Manny suggested that I buy coiled safety cables at Camping World - and I did - $88.88. Fred Townsend helped me install them - Fred helped me while I was in Redding a  couple years ago. Thanks Fred.

2018/04/23 - While in Redding, CA, Kenneth Keller of Keller Mobile RV Repair fixed the hydro-hot system. The diesel heater was not coming on. He found a loose wire and fixed it. Thanks Ken. Recommended - 530-776-3084.

2018/03/19 - Once a year I try to have the coach washed and waxed. This year I had the interior carpet professionally cleaned - in this case by Alfred Santiago. He is the son of the owner of Santiago's Mobile RV's & Details - who did the wash and wax. Alfred did a great job. Phone: 760-673-2061. The next day Sandra Sanchez did a thorough house cleaning of the inside of the coach. She works for the Ultra Prestige Cleaning Service, phone 760-393-9013.  Highly recommended.
