VERY flat. I did 20-30 mile rides that had under 100' of climbing. The biggest hill was the overpass over the interstate!

Looking forward to riding my bike through the very flat roads of my home state when I visit this summer!

We didn't have great signal this week so I wanted to update this now that I'm better connected.

We got in Sunday night. Monday morning, they couldn't put our trailer on their John Deere. I've forgotten his name now - but he was very apologetic about asking me to rehitch and take it to the service bay. We did the same thing Tuesday morning. When we returned after having lunch with my brother from Dayton, I came back to the service center to see my trailer out in the back lot! I asked how they did that. Turns out that Monday morning, he called Sean at ProPride and Sean FedExed a part to them which enabled them to move my trailer!

So again - I'm quoting myself to correct myself. The service center can move your 2.5" ProPride :-)

Maybe that was you SteveSueMac that we saw coming in Saturday evening.
Hi there! Nope, we came in Sunday around 4-5 pm. There was a couple from Canada who got in on Saturday. They had horrific hail damage. I think the service center told them it would take a month! Yikes!

We had a Voyager rear camera installed, our dinette area changed with a recliner and a custom cut of the original table that looks amazing, and several warranty items including a pressurized leak check as the clearance lights replaced by the dealer had a few pinhole leaks, repair of the door which required a complete deconstruction/reconstruction including new deadbolt lock and moved striker, checked FW tank for leaks (surprise - Micropulse :-) - all recalibrated and working for now) - lots of other one off stuff - all in 2 days. Bill was our service guy and he was fantastic. Explained everything, patiently answered questions, treated the trailer like it was his own and treated us like the most important people on the planet.

I opted out of the external propane hookup - first, by law, they have to put it on the non-awning side as it is illegal to use a grill under the awning (their words, not mine) and while I don't grill under the awning, I certainly don't grill on the sewer side! Plus, the hose wouldn't have been all that long - just seemed like carrying a 1lb propane tank isn't that big a deal after all.

This is the upgraded "great room" as DW calls it :-)

The recliner is the one they use in the 30'ers. The table was custom cut by Jim (what a great guy - equally great with us every step of the way and a bit of a perfectionist which you want for stuff like this). We talked about what we wanted and I gave him some ideas. He cut out a test version from scrap wood before committing and DESPITE the fact that it looks like a grand piano (which I suggested to DW before we even went to Jackson - an idea she hated) she really loves it now too! :-)

Oh - and the tour with Don was a real treat because of him - in his 54th year with the company!

Two more sites to see at JC
*great hardware store on main street & complete with a cat
*butcher shop a few blocks northeast of the Factory

Also, check out the bicycle museum 15 miles west--really worth seeing & a SUPER Italian restaurant next door.

We have been to the Service Center numerous times & always leave happy!
