Matthew’s Road Trip – Day 8

  Thursday was our last day to be at Red Bay.  By Wednesday afternoon, all repairs and modifications were completed except the replacement of the second jack.  We had to be in the bay by 7:00am, and they got finished with us by 10:00am.  Matthew had seen the motorhome on the hoist earlier in the week, but this time, he got to see them put the lift jacks under the tires and slowly lift it up……

After we cleared the service center and paid our bill, which was $0, we went back to the campsite, and had lunch while Patsy finished the last load of clothes to be washed and dried.

As I was setting up the TV for satellite, it failed to connect, and whatever I tried, it would not hookup!!  Patsy suggested that I call Brannon at Custom RV, and he was able to work us in at 3:00pm.  I was lucky to be near Brannon’s, because our Kingdome dish had failed.  He had a used one for $200 and I had him to install it.  I don’t know where I would have gotten it installed in Victoria!!

Since we were waiting for the appointment with Brannon, Patsy decided to take Matthew to the playground at the park for one more chance to play.  He had as much fun playing in the rocks, as on the equipment.  Here are some pics…..

On the way to meet me at Brannon’s, Patsy took Matthew by the Red Bay library to take the following photos….

When we finished up at Brannon’s, we headed to Florence, AL where I had made an appointment earlier in the week for 7:45am on Friday with Mike Simmon’s Tire Company to get the wheel alignment on the Bus checked.  A lot of places won’t service a Motor Home chassis, but this place works on a lot of Tiffin motor homes, and has a very good reputation.

After we parked the Bus on a Wal-Mart parking lot for night, we headed to Rosie’s Cantina for dinner.  We wanted to treat Matthew to a Mexican Food restaurant that had a little atmosphere.  Here are some pictures in the restaurant…..
