Don't know if it has been posted here yet, but the service request form is now on the FROG Web site.

I included a copy here:

How late? Parking in the dark is NO FUN.
Hard enough to park you folks in daylight!

If it will be much after dinnertime (7:30 at the latest to allow us to get you settled in daylight); I suggest you stop within an hour or so (Middlebury KOA comes to mind Elkhart Co. / Middlebury Exit KOA | Camping in Indiana | KOA Campgrounds or South Bend / Elkhart North KOA | Camping in Indiana | KOA Campgrounds) and come in Sunday early if you can't make that.

I put my foot down and instructed my wife to take an extra day off work. We going to show up on Friday, the 7th. As I understand it, I need to call the campground and make arrangements with them for the extra nights...correct?

Yes that is correct they will not assign you a spot you will be taken to the spot they have for you at the rally and then just pay sometime before you leave, it's as easy as that.

I think it is interesting that on the service request form under Description of Service Issue it says Up to 5 Items. I guess Forest River is going to limit the amount of work done on each RV this year. Im guessing this is probably due to the huge number of RVs expected this year. Or perhaps its to keep someone from bringing in a 15 year old rig and expecting Forest River to rebuild it for them.

Oakman, I think Bob wrote, that is not for maintenance Items that is the owners responsibility. I have been a witness to it that people will expect that. Being the folks they are they did it for past three years. Such as caulking, and brake adjustments, unless the brakes have a problem or something broken. Changing light bulbs and things like that. And I also think it is the latter that you said. It will be a zoo but I'm sure everyone will leave happy or it will be there fault, not FR....

Just imagine the scope of the operation if everyone expected a camper rebuild on 750 campers in 6 days...

I think every employee will be at the rally as it is...

It can't be every employee, after all, Bob needs somebody to make it look like their working during the factory tours.

Though I wouldn't be surprised if the plants only ran on tour days and the rest of the time they were at the rally.

It was my understanding that each division ask for volunteers to work at the rally. Some say NO and others can't wait. I remember the first one I attended they couldn't get any from the CC div. But Thursday before it ended Saturday They had everyone and there Mother out there and got all the CC taken care of. They always refuse tips for there service, but so that the new people know that they have a place that you can put your tip in a jar and then they all split it up.....Something to remember, they do get paid but they also volunteer to help us all out. Atleast that is my understanding someone correct me if I'm wrong...
