Has anyone ever not gotten a space? We have always gotten a space.

What do you do with your TV when they take it in for repair? It can stay at the Terraport or you can go out for the day.

Do they put you back in the same space? Yes.

Is it full hookups? Sewer, water, 50 amp? Yes.

Is there a place within walking distance for breakfast and lunch? Yes, the Heidout is next door.

Does the service center lounge/waiting room provide WiFi so I can do work remotely for my job? Yes, but if you have your own hotspot you might get better results. Verizon is great. AT&T also works but has a weaker signal.

For larger repairs and more than day jobs, do they partially reassemble it between days if it is a multi-day repair? If you can sleep in it they bring it back to the Terraport. For more major repairs, you will want to spend the night in a motel in Wapokenta or Sidney.

Anyone from here going to be there July 15, 16? Not until October.

We went to Jackson Center for minor warranty repairs after attending the International Rally in West Virginia, in 2016 as I recall. I was surprised upon getting there. Huge Airstream plant located among the cornfields of Jackson Center, which seemed to have a population hardly exceeding 3 (actually approx. 1,500). A sub sandwich shop, a gas station, a bar, and that was about it. A blinking red light had just been installed on the main cross street. There are places to go and to see, but all of them seem at least 20 miles away. Among other places, we enjoyed the bicycle museum in New Bremen, as well as the town itself, approx. 20 miles west of JC. Sydney, approx. 20 miles south, is the county seat and local population center, population approx. 20K. I asked our AS tour leader "Where do all the AS employees go for lunch?", to which he replied, "They all bring their lunch from home."

Be aware that they do everything they can to get you repaired within the day you reserved for but if another job bogs down in front of you, you will have to wait for that job to finish before they take you. On my first and only trip there, I came to have my air conditioner checked out due to poor performance. At the time they had two technicians whose job was to deal with air conditioner issues. There was a motor home ahead of me who had issues with poor drainage and water dripping from the filter area. It ended up it took both tech's to address the issues with this motorhome and they did not address my issues until day 2 of my stay there and even then they didn't start till after noon. So bottom line I overnighted there 3 nights and departed the day after they returned the trailer to me in the late afternoon.

So during my stay they checked the AC performance and realigned the door on my Safari since they felt there was some air intrusion causing some performance issues. Thankfully I was returning from vacation in Mackinaw City Michigan and had lots of time left to accommodate the extra time it took for JC to address my problems. Is for us it was up at the crack of dawn to get into the waiting room. That first day was a bust and at 3 pm they told us that unfortunately they wouldn't be able to deal with my issues until the following day.

From my experience it is normal for factory workers to eat at the plant. Most cannot afford to eat out every day and besides where would there be accomadations for several hundred workers all at roughly the same time as in an auto factory.?
