RV Toad

My Dear Friends;

I do not know what explanitives I can use to explain what we have gone thru jsut to insure our RV gets in towing condition and getting our 2002 Trailblazer hooked up

We purchased a Tow bar for a great price, we found a brake buddy system that needed work but got it fixed for almost nothing, and witht he help of Roy Robinson and the crew in the RV Dervice department we goter done.  As you can see we are set for towing,

We ntook the RV in to get it dewinterized and had some problems with the steps, and a new radio system, then when all was done we went over today to Hook up the trailblazer to the RV for towing.

It was a challenge, but the Service Technician, David did not give up. he was patient in showing us how to hookup the rv and the wires, AND whne he could have stopped there and I think most world have, he went above the mark to insure the tow vehicle was safe, got the lights working and made sure we were in safe and sound travel.

Now we have the Trailblazer hooked to the RV and ready to travel. I was nerveous pulling a car behind the 36ft Motorhome. BUT we made it home, Mostly because the family of technicians and service managers at Roy Robinson in Marysville Washington cares about service, and peoples safety...

YOU Will NEVER go wrong with Roy Robinson in Marysville... NEVER in this writters opinion....

No We do not get paid not does any company advertise on my blog.  I have been to alot of dealers and Roy Robinson got it all.

The Joys of Travel and Having

The Joys of Travel and Having someone who has you back

My friends it looks to be a great summer so be careful out there.  The weather is looking great so Tracy and I decided to go for it, then we found out our old trusty worthy Trailblazer
needs new boots, and we then decided to put aa tow bar on the front. so we coould tow it behind the motorhome.  So we went to the best dealership we could find in washington state, (and I say that after We have purchased cars and trucks from several dealerships in western Washington)  Roy Robinson chevrolet, Subrau, Motorhome,  I tell you this because I have never found a dealer who believes in customer service and support..Roy Robinson and the general staff have it down pat. they not only kept the repairs aand assembly in our budget but they found us rebates and HONESTLY took care of us. and I am not getting any bonus or pay for this, I do not advertise for any company, but Roy Robinson, and the staff. from Mark King , General manager, to Jake Hensrude, Matt In and crew in RV Service, John and crew in RV Sales,  
The whole crew everyone is just above par.  now we can go without worry of safety and concerns..

To the GREAT people at Roy Robinson Ground up.. you can bet they will treat you better than any other dealer we know of

Verizon -- Watch the fine Print

I have been with verizon for over 10 years. Up until now I have had some ups and downs wiht customer service and now that I am not under contract it seems the service got better.

I called this yesterday because my LG Dare went berserk, and I could not access anything on it.  So I called to see if I could get another phone.  I spoke with one Customer service in the business department as I (thought to my surprise) I had a business account, since every time I usually call in they put me over to the business department.  But the phone the person talked me into getting did not have the type of phone I wanted., so I called back today, once again to the business department and talked to another person. who set with me and we went over several phones and could not really find one I could afford right now...I am a disabled Veteran and on SSI disability, trying to keep a business alive.   I honestly did not believe I should be under a contract, because I have been a faithful customer so long.

Anyway. went to Walmart and they found me the same phone that the person in the business department (I think his name was robert, sorry memory not all that good) anyway so I called from walmart with the help of the manager of the department we went thru two phones and then I was told that I was not under a plan that would allow 4G cell phone...WHAT??? I am with Verizon, who does Cell phone cervice, and I have been a faithful customer for years...and yet I am told now I am not on a business plan??? I was told 10 years ago I was on a business plan, when I get the bill it is in my business name. A1 Computer Tutor.  This is my blog....and I am posting this on my blog...Verizon has lied to me for years and I trusted them, and now I find I can jsut get another phone with out a new contract...BS

Hello My dear Friends

We are currently staying at home dfor the summer, awaiting a big change...I jsut wanted to warn you about a cell service that is not good.

IF YOU BY CHEAP YOU WILL GET CHEAP>>>>Stay away from this company...

2007 We bought a boat

Hello My Friends

Well I know I have not been on this site much.  Just wanted to updte you all on what is happening.

In 2007 While i was working we decided to purchase a boat, from Olympic Boat Center.  

We picked up the boat, after 3 weeks and 2 hours of waiting, we purchased new kicker motor, New Electronic Downriggers, New GPS, and new equipment and saftey equipment.  We were told by Olympic that all maintenance would be done and they would insure the boat was sea worthy, because it was a used boat,  We were leery of the condition. BUT, since we were purchasing it from a reputable business, and not a used car lot, we felt that the boat would be safe.

As it turns out 1 hour after we picked up the boat, jsut out side of Everett Boat Launch, this happened.  (see web site)

My wife Tracy almost lost her life on this boat, and I injured my shoulder trying to statr an outboard that would not start. Our friends Dennis and Karen barely got off the boat before it sank...  It was later determined by our insurance company thaat "NO MAINTENANCE WAS DONE ON THE BOAT, THE FAN ON THE MOTOR WAS RUSTED CAUSING THE MOTOR TO HEAT UP AND MELT THE PIPES THAT CARRY COOL WATER AROUND THE MOTOR, AND WHEN THEYMELTED THE WAS PUSHED INTO THE BOAT AND THUS CAUSING THE BOAT TO SINK"

We went back to Olympic two days latter, and the manager told us they would replace the boat, and while it was their policy to send a salesman out with new boat owners they did not with us, and he did not know why.  He was apologetic and want to make all things right. 

We were put in touch with Hartford Insurance Claims department but they stalled and stalled so I wrote to the Insurance commissioner of Washington State.. After a month

Date: Tuesday, September 6, 2011, 4:12 PM
Mr. Worley,

We were able to match your current email with our prior case 1011395. At that time analyst April Findley handled your inquiry, and she responded to you with a 12-6-07 letter. At that time she said that the insurer was working directly with your attorney regarding the  4-20-07 boating incident and that upon settlement Hartford would consider the medical expenses. The relative text from analyst Findley’s letter said:” The company has indicated they will consider the medical bills and wage loss when reaching a settlement for your claim. “
However now the insurance company is saying thy won't fulfill their promoise.  So for the past 8 years Hartford has stalled and my lawyers hand is tied because Olympic filed for bankruptcy protection.  So we loose.  I am only sharing this with you all to warn you of anyone affiliated with the previous Olympic Boat Center, or Hartford Insurances company are crooks and do not pay the claims they are supposed to pay.

In closing I will tell you that after the accident I went to a doctor because I was having pain in my right shoulder, and because of my previous Job, which the company would not hire me back, I wanted to make sure the shoulder injury was caused by the boat accident.. I did a lot of research and questioning. (I used to drive a truck where we had some people complaining of shoulder pain from throwing straps) BUT, my doctor and Neurosurgeon said the damage to my arm had to have been done by the boat injury)

Thanks to all for visiting the site and reading my exploits and adventures. I am hoping this year we can add more here

Fishing / Washer/Dryer and more Excellance

Welcome my friends.

I am sorry I have not been posting much on here, but this has been a busy year and not much time.  I will try and do better.

I will begin by posting that we had a great trip up to Ft Casey Washington My friend Dennis and I  went up for opening season.

And what a trip we had...WOW.. when I got back it was time for Aquafest, a city street event that happens every July.  While Aquafest was going on our Motorhome was in the shop with those trusted and wonderful people of Roy Robinson RV in Marysville, We had been bless with a washer and dryer and had it installed and the dryer vent attached to the outside of the motorhome. it actually looks like it was factory installed. what a wonderful service, and Matt and the rest of the service department always does a great Job without charging an am and a leg. 
they mounted the vent above the CC graffic.  will add photos later, But I just wanted to tell you that Roy Robinson is the best in service, and sells when it comes to customers..They listen, and they work hard to get the job done for a great price.

Stay Safe out there...till my next Post..
