Repairs Made and A Recommendation

Portland, OR.

46 deg. mostly cloudy, no wind.

Forecast = Overcast. High of 64F. Winds from the West at 5 to 10 mph.

The repairman came at 10:00 as promised and proceeded to work on my electric steps. It took him a little while, but soon my steps were going in and out as he closed and opened my entry door. : )

I have mixed feelings about Keith from Affordable Mobile RV Repair. At times it seemed like he was not confident in his own diagnoses of the problem, but in the end, he came through and proper repairs were made. Also, when Jim and Linda received the final bill, they were pleasantly surprised at the charges. He definitely didn't charge for all the trips back and forth, or for that matter, all the time he spent finding what the problem was with my steps. He was very through with his troubleshooting of the problem and even rechecked his test results to make sure he had made the right decision.

So, if you're in the Portland Oregon area and have a problem with your RV, give Keith a call. He is very honest, has very reasonable rates, is very through and will not over-charge. Also, if he feels he can't handle the problem, he will tell you. And, if he knows of someone that he thinks can do the job, refer you to them.

Keith who is the owner of Affordable Mobile RV Repair is definitely one of the "Good Guys". : )

On the other hand, the service that Jim originally called, and had dealt with before, "Mobile Technical Services", can no longer be recommended. The business has been sold to a new owner and when called, did not show up for the appointment or even call. In fact as of today Jim has still not heard from them.

Oh, remember I told you that Jim had ordered a ladder? Well, Lowe's called yesterday and told Jim that the ladder was on back-order and would not be available until sometime in June. : (   So, the order was canceled and if Jim still wants to get a ladder, will have to try to get one at a later date.

Not a whole lot else happened yesterday. Jeff and Heather were busy so we didn't see them. Today, I think Jeff will be around, so maybe he'll have time to get together with Jim and Linda.

Did you know that in Portland, "Powell's City of Books", occupying an entire city block, is the world's largest independent bookstore?
