Have lunch on the Square in downtown Sidney at The Spot. Classic diner and has been there since I grew up there in the '60's.

And the Neil Armstrong Museum is not far away in Wapakoneta.

Don't miss the chicken dinner special at the "In Between". It was complete with a nice salad, about $7.50 and way more than I could eat at one sitting. Complete menu with a special every day. 2 bucks bottled beers too. Make a right turn out of the terraport driveway and cross over I-75 , just down on the left. Maybe 8 or 9 miles if memory serves. Went there 3 times, place was packed each time.

Breakfast 2 doors down from service center. Cheap, good and lots of it. Just walked to it.

Thanks Tinbender. I was also wondering when they bring it back after service is done.

We have a service appointment for September 16, 2014. We have lots of things planned to do while we are there. While the trailer is in the service center I hope to tour the Bicycle Museum of America (and donate/loan a recumbent bicycle) and the Neil Armstrong Air and Space Museum. There will an adventure on the way to the service center and many adventures after.

I've been to JC 4 times, 1st time before I bought SilverLeaf. The Service Center is a really efficiently run operation, and I love the fact that they let me watch when they installed my 2d AC last fall. It's amazing to see how quickly they are able to pull down a couple of panels, wire, put panels back, etc. AND I second the comment on the hardware store! It's a step back in time to go in there. They have everything you can imagine....though it may be 15 feet above you! Don't worry about the weather, just enjoy the trip.

God this is exciting!!!!


We go later in April. A few questions if the OP doesn't mind my piling on...

1) - exactly where do you park to "camp"? I couldn't quite tell from Google Maps. We'll be getting in on a Sunday night - they say they're open 24x7 for this but I don't expect anyone to be there when we get there. Sounds like we need to disconnect and leave our ProPride stinger in the trailer side...are there full hookups (30A, city water, sewer) ?

2) the service manager sent me some notes including the fact that they're "pet friendly". Just how pet friendly are they? Pets at the campsite? Pets in the waiting room? Pets on the tour (ok, that's just for comedy - I wouldn't take her on the tour ;-) ).

3) speaking about per friendly - do folks have suggestions on pet friendly activities, attractions, sites, off-leash dog parks, etc in the area?

4) while they're working on the unit, can you watch what they're doing? Can you hang out at your camp area (without your trailer)?

Thanks! I could NOT be more excited for the visit!

1. You stay in the Terraport- the campground at the Mothership. It is 3 circles of 8 camp sites for a total of 24 camp sites. It is near the factory and service center- on the same grounds within walking distance.
The John Deere tractor that comes to get your house at 7 AM will need your ProPride stinger.
The campground has water, sewer, and electric (30 and 50 amp I think).
2. Pets allowed in the Terraport and in the lounge/waiting area.
3. Don't know about what to do with the dog while your trailer is in for service. Hang around the campground, go to town, etc.
4. Yes, you can watch them work on your trailer. Yes, you can hang around in the campground near your tow vehicle. Get your Zip Dee chairs out of the trailer before the John Deere tractor comes.
I am so looking forward to our September 16, 2014 visit to the service center and factory.

Quickly...
Down the main drive on the right. You will see a sign.
Park wherever you like. Arranged on 3 starlike neighborhoods. None nicer or better... all the same.

All sites have water sewer 30 and 50 amp service. Dumpster in the middle.

Dog friendly as in at your site, around the factory property and in the customer lounge.... not in the Assy. Building. I always let run in the open areas as long as there are no objections... you'll see. Lots of people with dogs there. Not sure about other friendly places.
Sewer was designed for 1970 era rear bumper discharge... they seem to run uphill... not a problem just have a prop under your stinky hose.
You'll have a swell time there. Beware of the store and buy it while you have it in your hand!

We are doing a lot of touring around and sight seeing when we go in September.
I started another thread a little while back titled "Our September 2014 Visit to the Mothership".
In it I talk about all the things we are doing on that trip.
It's gonna be fun.

If you had time you could venture south to Dayton and visit the Air Force museum. Only about an hour. Free and worth the time. If your say of the week timing worked out... the second street public market is also a great half day killer. Local produce, live good music, art stuff. Really a top shelf market.
