Departure Planned

We had planned to depart on our trip tomorrow, but we had to postpone the start date.  We ordered a couple things for the trip that won’t be arriving until Friday.  If they arrive as scheduled, we will leave on Saturday.

 I went to visit the nesting birds at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm one more time before we leave.  Following are three of the families I encountered.

Three of the house batteries in the RV were still not working properly.  They had to be replaced before our trip begins.  Regis contacted North Trail RV and they told him he could take the RV to a Camping World that is also a Jayco dealer.  They could replace the batteries under the warranty.  Regis was not interested in another long drive to Fort Myers to pick up batteries, so he was happy to take it some place closer.  Regis told me the Camping World was located west of Jacksonville and he had an appointment at 8:00 this morning.  He left very, very early and I wondered why.  I came to find out that Regis went to the other side of the State.  When Regis said west of Jacksonville it was like saying California is west of Jacksonville. Sheesh!

Camping World ran a diagnostic on the batteries and it showed there was a problem.  It will take several days at least to determine if the battery company will honor the warranty.  Regis bought replacement batteries (because we can’t go without them) and we hope that it will be resolved and we will get reimbursed.  It was almost $600.  Ouch!  I have hope that between the battery supplier and North Trail RV, we will be made whole.  It is a brand new RV and should have had good batteries in it.

We have most of the stuff ready to load in the RV.   We are itching to get going!

    That was a bummer about the batteries. But glad you got new ones.
    Don’t forget to pack your pjs. ☺️
