Parking/hookups at factory

I will be traveling to Elkhart next week for service at the factory and I forgot to ask if they had hookups there. I will be leaving New York on Saturday for a Monday morning appointment. Depending on the weather and travel time if we arrive Sunday night I was wondering if they had space in the parking lot to park. During service I will be staying in a hotel.

There is a parking area. Not much to write home about. The parking lot is in bad need of repaving... at least when I was there last June. We dry camped there for two nights while they made some repairs (mostly minor). The hot water heater swap form Girard Gen I to II took a little more work as did a small bubble in the finish that looked like a gel coat flaw. Facilities are not nearly as nice as the Gaffney Freightliner service center. But they are nice people to work with.

It's good to know I can dry camp if we get there early Sunday.

As you face the building you will be entering the gate on the left side so might as well park on that side of the lot. Do not block the gate as they get early morning deliverers. You should ask Mitch and Randy for a factory tour while you are there. It is worth it and you will meet the people working on your coach. They are all a great group of people.

Dry camping so have fresh water tank full and black and gray empty.

Forgot to mention when you get home hose off under the coach. You will thank yourself years from now. A lot of corrosive elements on the road this time of year. I know what I speak of.

Make sure you try and use hot water to rinse the salt off. I believe there was a service note out a few years ago on this.

Don't forget full propane also as it is not great camping weather. Just a thought as heat and hot water would be nice.
