November 6-7, 2012 – Winnebago Service Department, Forest CIty, IA – Days 2 and 3

We spent most of the past two days hanging out in the Winnebago Customer Service waiting room

while their service technicians addressed a long laundry list of mostly minor warranty-covered items on our motor home … along with some scheduled maintenance, the repair of our digital antenna (which we discovered wasn’t working properly after an encounter of the third kind with a couple of overhanging tree branches) and the installation of an internal surge protector (after having experienced a power surge at one of the campground we stayed at on this trip).

All in all, it’s been a pretty boring and surprisingly tiring time … with trips to Subway for lunch and a Chinese restaurant for dinner one night being highlights in this somewhat rundown (other than the Winnebago headquarters and factory and Waldorf College) community of with a population of only 4,125.

Seriously, however, it did provide time for us to make some new RV friends who were also having overlapping multi-day services done on their rigs.

Tomorrow morning we’ll be heading as directly home as possible, although driven in part by the limited number of campgrounds still open this time of the year between north-central Iowa and Langhorne.
