As the Lazydays Turns:-) - Sunday, January 12 to ???, 2014
On Sunday, January 12th our time was up at Myakka River State Park. But before we left, we took one last early morning walk to the birdwalk. We saw a few things we hadn’t seen before.
Just shortly after we started, as we rounded the corner,
It was cool to see it, but the destruction they do is so sad:o((
A bit farther and we saw a deer feeding across Myakka Lake!!
Once we reach the boardwalk,
It was a beautiful morning,
but we didn’t have time to just linger;o((
On our way back to the RV,
Once we got back, Bill started to prepare the outside for travel.
I defrosted some leftover Buckwheat Corncakes and fixed a hearty breakfast.
We added our last banana and some of our wild blueberries from Maine:o))
This should sustain us during our 1 hour drive to Lazydays RV near Tampa;o))
It didn’t take long before we were packed up and headed down Myakka SP Drive.
Hate to leave but… we WILL be back!!!
All but about 5 miles of our 62 mile trip was on I-75 North.
Traffic was very light!!
In about an hour,
we pulled into Lazydays and were led to our service site at the Crown Club.
Since it was Sunday, nothing will happen today. Our appointment with our service advisor is scheduled for 1 pm tomorrow. We have some annual maintenance to be done and a couple warranty issues that need to be address.
The biggest issue is our house batteries. They only last 6 months and then they are dead and need to be replaced. We have had 3 new sets of batteries. Replacing the batteries is not the solution. They need to figure out why they go dead. These are expensive, 12 volt AGM Maintenance Free Batteries. It appears that they do not recharge. When they go dead, we cannot run anything unless we are plugged in. So driving down the road, we can’t run the generator or even the refrigerator on propane. We sure hope we get to root cause of this issue!! If not, we may be spending the summer at the Winnebago Factory in Iowa!!
Early Tuesday afternoon, we were moved into a service bay.
While they got started on Tuesday,
our service tech was assigned to the RV Supershow on Wednesday and Thursday.
Since, we knew nothing more would get done before Friday…
we headed to the show as well on Wednesday.
We were at the Tampa State Fair Grounds before 9am when the show opened.
Bill had about 4 things he wanted to get while we were here.
We found NONE of them:o((
Next we headed to the seminar tent.
Howard and Linda Payne, the RV-Dreams founders,
were doing a Tire Safety and RV Weighing Seminar.
Sherry and David Lois and Don
It was almost 2pm by the time we all headed our separate ways.
We headed back to check out the new Winnebagos.
Didn’t see anything we needed there;o))
Lee and Martha Neil and Nancy
All of these couples are people we have met at RV-Dreams Rallies.
They are all spending time in Florida this winter!!!
So glad we had the chance to meet and catch up a little:o))
By now, the show had got REAL crowded and we decided we had seen enough.
On our way out, we did get to see this unique parade;o))
Back at Lazydays, we spent the evening in our Motorhome in the service bay. On Thursday, they did a little bit of the maintenance work and we just piddled away the day. Then on Friday, they finished up most of the maintenance work and we were moved back on a regular site until at least Monday. Warranty work needs to be approved and that will not happen over the weekend!!
Our big hope is that in this coming week...
they will finally get to the “Root Cause” of our battery problem!!!
