We arrived in Searcy, Arkansas Monday afternoon during a
thunderstorm. We drove along with the storm for about 50 miles
before our arrival. The motorhome handles nicely. even with strong
winds and heavy rain. The large windshield provides great
visibility, and we are above most of the road spray.
The window repair facility is well equipped for RV’s. They parked
us in a nice spot in front of one of their large air-conditioned bays.
They provide good 50 amp electric, sewer, and water. The hookups are
all located under the large overhang so you can hook up everything
out of the rain, a nice feature since it was raining when we arrived.
As an unexpected bonus, they also provide an excellent WiFi
service. There is no charge for the hookups.
Lee – “The Main Man”
Tuesday, we did a walk around with the technicians, and as we
expected, some of our windows will need new glass. The others can be
repaired at far less cost than buying new windows.
RV Fog Dr.’s
method of repair is also superior to the original factory methods, so
the windows should remain fog free for a longer period of time.
The only downside to new glass is we have to wait for it to be tempered (must be sent to Nashville), therefore making a
longer wait to finish the process.
On the positive side of a longer
stay, we don’t have to pay a camping fee, and there are several nice
drives we can make around the area while they are working on our
windows. It looks like we may be here for as long as two weeks.
Yesterday we made a circuit of about 125 miles to the north and
west of Searcy. It was a nice drive along several nice lakes and
rolling hills similar to what we would expect to see in north
