Of course, the alarm whistle from the Journey's dash was still there, but I defeated it. No, not with ear plugs, but a Bee Gees CD, cranked up. Tunes from "Stayin' Alive" and "How Deep is Your Love" defeated the whistle, at times with a little help from my vocal chords. Good thing I was by myself...
It was very easy to find Gaffney Freightliner and I pulled in. The facility has six service bays.
Some rocking chairs were waiting for customers on the porch.
Inside is a very nice lounge for customers to wait while their motorhomes are being serviced, with free WiFi. :c)
There is a dump station and water faucet on the way into the parking yard.
There are 20 electric only sites (30 and 50 amp). There were three other motorhomes in the parking area, so I moved way down to be away from them. I took site number 7 (for good luck).
A couple of hours later, my luck ran out. 16 open sites and a guy in a motorhome comes in and parks right next to me. Figures.
After I registered with the service writer for my 8 am appointment tomorrow, I went outside the shop to look at a bare Freightliner chassis that is used for the "Know Your Chassis" course that is put on here a couple of times a year. It was good to study the chassis to increase my own knowledge.
Hopefully tomorrow will be a success and the dash problem will not take too long. I'm sure they've seen this problem before and have all the computer testing equipment to track it down. While I'm here, I'm having the Journey's annual service done, too. Since we retired and hit the road last December 5th, we've driven the Journey over six thousand miles. It's due for a little bit of mechanical pampering.
One more thing, if you're a member of FMCA, it is to your benefit to join the Freightliner Chassis Owners Club. Membership will give you significant discounts on parts and labor when you get work done by a Freightliner service facility. It is $10 a year and is money well spent.
