Our current location: traveling to Chehalis, Washington
While you read this post today, I’ll share a few final photos of Seaside with you. We enjoyed our time there at the Seaside Resort, and since we paid nothing this week to stay here, it was all the sweeter!
I don’t know if anyone remembers our story of ordering a new monitor for our back-up camera….but there is more to the story. Originally Josh, who worked at Uhlmann’s RV, could not get the replacement monitor before we needed to leave on this trip in March. So, he told us that when the shipment came in, Uhlmann’s would just keep it for us until we returned in June. We figured that would have to do, since we needed to get on the road for Disney World.
In April Bruce called Josh at Uhlmann’s to check on the monitor shipment. Josh told him they had just located a replacement and it was still on order. Josh then told Bruce to “call me back in a couple of weeks to make sure it’s here.” OK…we’re thinking all is well. Wrong!
Bruce called in May to check on the status of the shipment. He asked for Josh in the Service Department….”Oh, he no longer works here,” was the answer. A new guy named Casey was now talking to Bruce and he checked in our file and found nothing related to a monitor order placement or shipment. Bruce explained the whole, long story and nobody knew anything about it. Josh had been stringing us along for quite a while until he left his job there.
Casey was good enough to get moving immediately on the order. He called Bruce back a couple of weeks later to say that the monitor had been received and was waiting for us! Let’s just hope it turns out to be the right one when we get there.
We have one stop to make today to get our MCD blinds adjusted and then it will be on to Chehalis and our appointment with Uhlmann’s RV on Thursday morning. Hopefully this new guy, Casey, will be someone who is easy to work with and keeps his word! That would be a refreshing change.
We plan (make that: hope) to be back in our usual RV spot in Tumwater by Thursday afternoon. We’ll be getting together at our daughter and son-in-law’s house for a steak BBQ dinner. Can’t wait to see the “grands” once again!
Until next time…..so long for now!
