It's almost like leaving a pet for boarding...

...or a child at camp.

Took the White Hawk to the selling dealer for needed maintenance this morning. Hate leaving her alone but this is a great dealer and we trust them



Mt. Vernon Washington, in case you are ever north of Seattle on I-5.
Most honest dealer within a 30 mile radius!

Make sure your batteries are not draining. My dealer is good but they did not get to my rig before the batteries discharged due to parasitic loads.

Thanks, Norty!

I may call them but they thought they would have the rig back in a week, so hopefully...

Lol, Iím about 120 miles from Mt Vernon, so that must mean there could be a better dealer around me than in Mt Vernon.

I have a Jayco dealer 15 minutes away from me but I wouldn't trust them to change a light bulb.

When we bought our Jayco from Blade, we looked at other dealers in the Mt. Vernon/Burlington area, there are several. Every salesperson tried selling us rigs that were way to heavy for our TV. The salesman at Blade told us exactly what our limits were. I also knew as I have been towing trailers since 1983.

This is all IMHO. YMMV.

I feel the same way about the Jayco dealer near me. I will never attempt to do business with them again. Glad you have other options that arenít too far. I donít, so I traveled out of state for both of my Jaycos.

We are fortunate to have one 30 minutes away who we purchased from. They have treated us well for 11 years. Last time I had a slide motor problem they took me in the same day, diagnosed and ordered the part. Called me a week later to come down and get it installed. I arrived and was out the door in two hours.

Bought ours from Blade RV back in 2013 and they were excellent to deal with. Luckly we have not needed to be back there for some time now.

O thank god I am not alone in feeling this way. I thought I was loosing it. My mother and I bought the second trailer along with the first one together. She passed away and now when I leave it with the dealership to be serviced I feel like I am leaving a child on the first day of K with unknown teachers. And same with the dogs. So yes when I get it back I almost want to hug it. OK I am weird and glad to hear I am not alone feeling this way.

At least it's not the VW bug in your signature!
