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..

DIY not so DIY

I am an avoid watcher of DIY network, so when they said "Desperate Landscapes" was coming to the Seattle area and looking for desperate landscapes to remodel.  I was all in.

Since the military disability, (had an aircraft engine drop on me in the military) back, hip, neck, and spine, plus damage to Arm, I am not able to do the landscaping I want to do.  and living on a limited income thought this would be a great way you get this place fixed.  the front yard is awful, and the neighbors keep asking when we are going to get it done.

So I looked up the signup on the web site.  listed below
http://www.diynetwork.com/about-us/diy-networks-desperate-landscapes-is-planning-a-couple-of-road-trips/index.html

and signed up.

First they asked me for a photo of my family... not sure why they needed a photo of the family it was the yard they were remodeling,.

Then they asked my age,,  WHAT was that about ??? what does my age have to do with remodeling my landscape?

Sounds a little fishy to me.  But I filled out the page and sent the required information

I then sent more to them when they sent me an e-mail confirming the receipt.  JUST how bad the front yard was and the small bank that was washing away, the driveway that was breaking apart, and the no plants in the front ugliness.

I received the following

"  Thanks for your application. Unfortunately, your yard is not quite desperate enough for our needs.
  I'm sorry.
  Amy"


Now as a Vietnam veteran and over 60 person I have heard "your not quite what we're looking for" for years.  and this is nothing new.

BUT, seems age discrimination and youth wins out again. Because I have seem yards in way less damage than mine. who have been fixed, and I have seen them fix military veterans (post 9/11) yards, but I am not young, I am not a post 9/11 veteran so DIY is not interested in helping ..

Seems Fishy to me

Roy Robinson Comes Through

On the road again;

We had a friend go into Roy Robinsons in Marysville, and guess what they treated them great, took care of concerns, and got them into a great car. 

Ok, Ok, I know I sound like the press blubbering over the president and not seeing the faults, BUT, Roy Robinson Chevrolet and Suburu in Marysville Washington is the best Auto/RV dealer I have EVER purchased a vehicle from. The whole team is CUSTOMER FIRST orientation, and centered/  You will not be disappointed  ever.  I just wish we had found  this out when we purchased our first car in 1988.

Mark the General Manager, John & Malom In RV's,  Matt and the full RV maintenance team, Rick and Jake in sales of cars. you will not find a better more concerned team.

If you have the opportunity to go by and visit, or have questions, just ask them they are they to always help.

tell them Santa - John Worley Sent you

Sleep Number Scam - Buyer Beware

Hi Everyone;

In 2007 we purchased a sleep number bed for our home, they sold us a bed raise and massage mechanism, that we honestly do not use, Here is the conversation I had with them, I called the warranted and they want 300.00 to replace the mechanism,,, their service stinks and I would warn you not to purchase one for your motor home

Welcome to Sleep Number Live Chat, you are now connected with 'David'.
David: Hello, my name is David and my SLEEP NUMBER ® setting is 30.  How may I assist you?
John: We purchased a sleep number in 2007 with 10 year warren tee. and the motor that raises and lowers the bed and does the massage quit. We did not purchase a separate package, we purchased it all as one package. Now you won't replace the motor, even though it has only been used maybe 10 times over the past 7 years...
John: I posted my complaints on my blog and on pissed.com. I was going to put one in my motor home but now I am having reservations
David: Hi John! I am sorry to hear that you are having a problem with the motor for your adjustable base. Leggett and Platt is the manufacturer of the adjustable bases and they hold the warranty. I would recommend giving them a call to make a warranty claim. They are available by phone at 1-800-888-3078
John: I did not purchase the Adjsutable from them I purchased it from YOU. jsut as I do not purchase a started fromdelco when I purchase a car. So it is up to YOU to replace what you sold me.
David: Unfortunately Sleep Number would not be able to offer you warranty coverage for your adjustable base. The warranty is held by Leggett and Platt.
John: I called them and they are asking over 300.00 to replace the motor.. that is not going to happen
John: well the message is out on my blog..http://rvblogger123.blogspot.com/ and on pissed .com... I am filing complaints about your company where ever I can. even with the BBB
David: I am very sorry to hear that. Please do not hesitate to get a hold of us if you have any other questions at all. Is there anything else I can help you with today?
John: you sold me the mechanism, you sold me the warrentee. and you are responsible for the replacement

Summer 2013 Traveling East

WOW. Welcome friends...Just returned from our wonderful 5 day trip to eastern washington. what a trip. learned alot about motorhomes and about scheduleing.

1. driving for 5 stright days without resting a day or two takes alot out of you.

2. make sure all the buttons are buttoned and the sealed are sealed.  It's funny but not at the time when you look in your rear view mirror and see your sewer hose following you down the road..

3. check the weather if traveling in 90+ weather know your limitations.

Other that just not planing well we had a great trip.
  We went to Lake Pearrygin State park and Winthrop the first day. saw some wonderful sights on the way. Always stop at the little store outside Leavenworth called "The Alps"
Lake Perrygin & Winthrop was beautiful wish I could add all the photos here but there are so many to see.



  

Then we traveled along hwy 20 to towns like Okanogan and  Omak and Republic visiting those towns and meeting wonderful people .  
Our next night we spent at Curlew State Park. and what a park it was
