We were just debating going and "half timing" there for a couple of months on one of the lake side sites. Guess I know now if we do go, to look up the hill and make sure there aren't any rolling bombs waiting to come rolling down. Hope Bayou gets you fixed up sooner than later.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

One of the biggest reason I swapped brands. Dealer. Found one that doesn't care where it was bought, what brand etc. They're like a pit crew, and do great work. Fortunately I haven't needed them but once. Second option is an independent shop I dealt with in the past that is second to none. I love a good independent service, since they make their living "fixing" instead of selling.


Hope they pick up the pace. Pretty crappy considering some dealers get stuff overnighted, or at least within a few days.

Last week we get a call from Bayou Outdoors that the wall (replacing outer wall of large slideout) arrive but was 2" too short. Offered to patch it up for use until correct wall came in (3-4 weeks) but would not assure me that we'd get instant access to repair shop when wall came in. I told them to just keep it and call us when ready to inspect.
We have now missed 4 planned trips, my hunting/camping trip, and the cheapest gas prices in years. Looks like Thanksgiving trip is off too. Man we miss the rockwood.

Ha. I can't imagine how you ship the wrong wall when you order the Large Slide Wall for a 2013 Rockwood 8282WS. Seems simple but I don't know how they log inventory at the rockwood factory.
I once ordered a ladder for it. Gave written, detailed description including model number off the bottom rung, and number of rungs (6). They sent the 5 rung ladder. I called and they said "oops, just keep it and we'll rush the correct one to you."
I still have the brand new ladder in bubble wrap, in the way, in my shop. Hoping for a December trip now. Thanksgiving seems to be out of the question. Thanks for well wishes.

That part about not having instant access to the shop when wall came in, would probably be my last deal with them. That's just me though. I gave them one shot a year ago, and left with some pretty heated talk, and went elsewhere and paid cash for our SOB rig. Never again with them. I have no mercy on a dealer. I take care of you at purchase, you had better take care of me later. Probably why there's only 1 or 2 I'll even speak with in the whole state.


Hope for your sake they can gain some common sense between dealer and factory and get some progress going. You're a better man than me David. But, they do have you rig right now. Kind of in a rock and a hard spot.

John, I didn't buy it there. They've done some other service and addons for me and no complaints. The offer was to put the damaged wall back on and seal the hole from water so we could use it til new wall came in. But.... We'd have to make another appmt to bring it back for repair completion. I can't expect them to hold a service bay open for me and this is a pretty serious repair. So i chose to leave it with them to hold my spot. The delay is with fr. Hopefully will get it soon.
