We called this morning and told the service person assigned to us that we are headed west and would get our final repairs finished later.
If you were not aware, our refrigerator is not working correctly. The freezer area temperatures are usually in the single digits to teens. That if fine if you don't want to keep ice cream hard frozen. The refrigerator area is between the upper 40's to 60. Perfect for a chilled pantry but not very effective as a refrigerator. We can use the fridge section for veggies and condiments that would not spoil at those temps.
I won't go into the entire story of why we stayed in Ocala an entire week instead of a couple of days but here is the short story. The original plan was to have the fridge replaced Monday of this week and head west Wednesday. The people at the dealership are getting put through a runaround by the company that makes our RV fridge. First, the manufacture decided that a couple of tests would have to be performed before they would approve replacement. Some tests were done in April but they wanted more. After the few more tests were completed, the manufacture decided that an additional 4 hour test was required. The final results were that the fridge is broken and they approved replacement, finally. This is what we have known since April.
The RV service department has done all they could do to move this process along but not in the time frame we needed! We knew that it would force us to stay for an additional 2 weeks. NOPE! We will do this later.
Our plan right now is to make the trip to New Mexico in 7 days. That is really pushing it for us.
