Endie's Relapse! Back to Coburg.

Endie's water heater leak repair ended the problem but not the consequential damage.  One of the bathroom floor tiles has buckled and the grout is crumbling. We noticed it last Tuesday evening and called Monaco on Wednesday.  We were instructed to bring her in on Thursday morning at 7:30 to have the service tech take a look.  Service and repairs are being scheduled into mid-August and we're told that if our repair is extensive, we'll need to get on schedule.  If it's not too big a repair job, they'll do it immediately. Monaco has been really good to "work us in" as new owners with warranty work.  We're pleased but disappointed that the tile work wasn't checked before they finished tearing out the rear when they had to find the water leak last month.

I'm following Wayne into Coburg. The clouds are hanging low but the sun is shining.
It's another great day in Oregon.

Valerie greeted us with her warm happy smile again and it wasn't long until Endie was taken into one of the service bays. 
Valerie. Every employers dream employee.

Waiting for Endie to be examined.  

Dog walks must go on!

Wayne's preparing Endie for a trip to the RV hospital.

I took my morning walk around the huge complex that had been the expansive home of Monaco Coach Corporation and snapped a few photos
The former Coburg headquarters of Monaco RV

Former Monaco facility.  Now part of Coburg North Industrial Park. Tenant name not yet determined.

Monaco had it's own MonaCare Health Clinic.

More vacant buildings.  This one is #17.  I saw #25 too.
I think this is 600 acres altogether.

Endie is in her hospital bay.

At the end of the day, the techs determined just two tiles would need to be removed, wood replaced and more Kilz applied to the area. Endie was pulled into Site #1 where we spent the night and will have the tile replaced the next day.
Only this much tile had to  be removed for water damage.

This is where we'll spend the night.
The spaces are located in front of Monaco Service Center.
Lots of Monaco, Holiday Rambler and Beaver owners are here.

The service order Val posted on our windshield.

So by the end of the day on Friday, we were finished and ready to go. All that is required is that we stay off the re-laid tile for 24 hours.
