We had an appointment with the Freightliner Factory Service Center. The @%*^#$* dashboard wiring was finally going to be replaced. No more annoying warning alarm and all the gauges to work correctly again. While the Journey was in the shop, I had the engine coolant and the air brake dryer serviced. RVs are nice, but there is lots of maintenance to keep them running smoothly and reliably. It is money well spent to protect our investment in the Journey.
New wiring harness, all the defective white wires replaced with the upgraded black wires.
The best part was the dash work was done under warranty, even though the Journey is now 8 years old and has 73589 miles on it! How is that for good (great!) customer service?
We were expecting an all day wait, but the work was completed before lunchtime and the Journey was back in its spot in the free camping area behind the service center.
It pays to come to the factory service center, where the techs are very familiar with your motorhome and the parts are readily available. The Freightliner chassis factory is right down the road if a part is needed that the service center doesn't have it in stock. I also joined the Freightliner Chassis Owners Club (FCOC) when we bought the Journey, and one of the benefits is a discount on the parts and labor. Well worth the cost of membership.
We're going to stay overnight again and head back to the COE tomorrow morning. Just a quick break before we head back to the "grindstone". ;c)
