Finished at Red Bay

Wednesday, August 1, 2018

Great start to August! Beautiful day. Cool temperatures, high of 82 today. Lower than usual August in Alabama but not the 26 F indicated by the Red Bay pharmacy outdoor sign when we did our afternoon walk. A little respite from the heat today. Nice!

We were in the paint bay at 7:00 this morning and BJ went right to work. In case you have missed some earlier posts, the window at our computer work station was defective and couldn’t be repaired so had to be replaced. That meant we had to go to paint for the window trim to be painted. While there BJ also did a little touch up on a couple of other spots. BJ finished up about 1:30 and we went to the office to check out.

Our one year full warranty was actually up June 7 when we were working in Hattiesburg. We called Tiffin and explained we were going to be working spring mission projects and asked if we could have the last of our warranty work done a little late. We emailed them our punch list and they okayed us coming in anytime in the next 12 months for the repairs. It’s pretty amazing. We have been here almost three weeks. They took care of all of our concerns and even more. If they thought something needed to be done they did it even if it wasn’t on our list, like replacing all our LED lights. Our final invoiceWe also got a new air conditioner, new cabinet, new cabinet door, new awning LEDs, new window, two additional shelves for our pantry and full hookup site. When we went to the office to pay our total bill was $0.00. Wow! Reaffirms our decision to purchase a Tiffin product. They just try to do what’s right. No trying to do as little as possible. Without exception every interaction with every employee was a pleasure. While we didn’t really plan to be here but about two weeks, the extra days we were here this week were good. We made a number of new friends and handed out more NOMADS brochures.

After returning Fred to our campsite, we headed to the local pizza restaurant Hometown Pizza over in Belmont, for a late lunch. We had pizza and a salad and it was very good. Again we enjoy being able to support local businesses rather than the big chains. Met one of our neighbors having lunch there too. A retired police officer had this police flag painted on his grill while he was here.Back at the campgound we met some more people that came in today who were retired police officers. They had the grill on their rig painted with the police flag. It looked really cool. Some of our police friends might be interested in this.

It was a good day and a great Red Bay visit. We are getting ready to head back to Tuscaloosa tomorrow.
