I finally have some GOOD NEWS!! I have found & chosen the place to fix my RV - YAY! And at a good decent price, not a scalpers cost. A price I can afford & whew! Complete overhead rebuild - $3,200. Much better than the other estimates I've gotten. OK, so now I'm going to blow the horn on PPL. They were the ones that rudely told me that it would be 10-12K to rebuild my overhead cab! I was shocked over that & even more shocked over the attitude that was tossed my way. I tried to complain, but was there at a bad time as all the important people to complain to were out to lunch. However, this was not my bad first negative experience with PPL, so I am now done with them. They sent me to the wrong person last year when I wanted to buy another rig, so I lost the opportunity to buy it. One of the associates made me feel bad that I live in a motorhome. Then there was the time I parked in the handicapped section (it was shortly after my surgery & I have a placard on the window's rear view mirror). They hunted me down & made me move while I was hobbling around the parking lot! They apologized, but I still felt they were wrong with their actions. They did damages to my rig when I had it in for a fridge install. ( I need to mention that Joy in the service dept came through with flying colors, & made things right for me during that time - she was great) However, with the other things I've mentioned, I will from now on, take my business elsewhere. So onto the good news & the place I found. It's Felton's RV service http://www.feltonsrvservice.com/ They have been around for 25 years. I am soooo glad to have found them! I think I saw a link to them on the internet on someone's RV blog & followed it, which led me to them. They said they could have my rig done in 5 days, but asked for 10. I allowed them 10 as I feel it won't be rushed through that way since they did ask for the extra time. It's not there yet, I'll get Ellie there next week when the weather clears back up. I told them I didn't want to drown while I was driving her ;-) And I met & spoke with the guy that is going to be doing the actual work. I find that impressive as well since so often, the repairs are done without one knowing the parties, & never really get to meet them.
I can't wait to get my bedroom back!! I found these pics. I know most people use the little RV ladders they get with their C's, but I don't have one. I went to buy one when I got my RV, but I didn't really like them. I was afraid they looked too unstable for me. So I bought a step ladder instead & it's so very valuable! When I'm not using it to climb into bed with, I can use it outside for a few things as well. Like the time my awning saver jammed, so I needed to climb up the ladder to unassemble it as my awning also was jammed too.
Here are some pics of the ladder & how it fits well into my RV. Click on each image to make them bigger for better viewing if needed.
From this picture, you can see the view coming down the ladder. I never would try it going forward - ladders are not meant for that anyhow. But you can see how the footing is great on this!
Cept there have been times where I miscounted steps & thought I was at floor level, only to find a foot stomp while it hit the ground! But that's another story huh?
And here is a pic of Ellie in the snow! Once in a very rare while, we get snow in Southeast Texas! (oh, this isn't new snow, it's an old photo)
And what is snow without a snowman?
My cute little snowman that I built on top of my mailbox ;-)
It was funny, the breeze would catch his arms & he'd wave at the drivers passing by. He even made Fox26 news! heehee
~As always, be kind to your pets, clean up after them on your travels & respect your neighbor~
