The General RV dealership, yes SIR! That's THE general we're talking about. We left St. Clair Preserve in St. Clair MI this morning about 8:30 AM to head to the General RV in Wayland, MI, 200 miles away, because of problems with our Suburban furnace. We purchased our Tiffin Phaeton at General RV so we knew we would get good service, at least you hope for that! What's the problem with the furnace? The fan turns on, but the furnace doesn't light. It's under a two year warranty which is going to run out soon, so we were hoping for an easy fix.
Well, yes and no....It's an easy fix. They have to order a new circuit board. Not so easy, because it's going to be three or four days until they get a new board. Did we want to sit in the parking lot at General, locked up at night in the gated lot with only an electric hookup? Naw...we decided to go back to Hidden Ridge RV Resort, located between Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids, just down the road two exits from General. We had our first "shakedown" cruise in the new Tiffin two years ago heading to Hidden Ridge for a few days stay. It's just about five miles from General RV and very convenient for service appointments and extended stays if you are needing work done at General. Did we get good service today? Yes, we did. They got us in and out as quickly as possible, considering they don't take appointments. And down the road we went to Hidden Ridge.

Two pretty lakes to view, fishing, little kayak rentals for floating around the lake in, four golf courses nearby, terrific workout room facility, big pool, lots of amenities and lots of room to spread out in..The only drawback? No trees in the park, everybody is out in the open. Trees surround the perimeter of the park, though....Concrete pads with PLENTY of room between sites.
We really feel welcome here and love coming back to see it again. It feels almost like coming home again....Kind of special memories considering we had our start for our full time RVing life here in Michigan....
P.S.Thanks for all the nice tips and concern about Eldy's back. He's much better, and Sparky forgot to say, he may be waiting for April to roll around to go on Medicare, but he's definitely going to his favorite and trusted chiropractor in Elkhart next month for some visits to get him in line....Sparky says she can get him in line, but he'd rather go to the chiropractor! :-)
