We are finally in Parker Az and it's HOT. We left North Idaho on the 19th and drove to Dillon Montana for the first night. Dillon KOA is a very nice park. From Dillon we headed South to Idaho Falls and Bish's RV. We had some minor warranty repairs and were to have a cargo rack installed. Well the cargo rack was a few weeks out and wasn't there. The parts lady called and checked where it was and it wasn't.
A word to the wise here. Order a rack when you order a trailer. They cost a LOT more after the fact. I mentioned to the service manager that the brakes were not working very well and he had the mechanic check them out. What he found is that 3 of the 4 were covered with wheel bearing grease.
It was late in the afternoon so they buttoned up the trailer and set it up for us in a guest area so they could work on it the next day.
The next day they still didn't have approval from Jayco to do the brakes. We had them fix them and agreed to pay for the job so we could be on our way. No decision from Jayco so we paid and continued South.
It seems that either someone at Dexter or Jayco was overzealous with a grease gun. I anticipate that it may be a while before we are reimbursed for the brake job. It seems that everything was covered with grease so they replaced all 4 backing plates, electrics, shoes and all. The cost was $1127. I will be calling Bish's next week and possibly Jayco customer service.
Our trailer was new in Feb 11 and only had 1600 miles on it when we took it in. I am not a believer in the Dexter lubing system and didn't pump any grease into it. I only repack bearings by hand and usually around 10k miles. Time will tell if they (Jayco) do the right thing. I'll keep you posted on any progress or lack of progress.
I really want to thank Bish's RV for their professional attitude and work. They really went out of their way to make us comfortable in Camp Bish and they always do quality work.
