HUMBUG State Park and RV Breakdown

HUMBUG State Park and RV Breakdown

Sometimes in the midst of all the beauty, you get thrown for a loop in your plans.  We enjoyed 5 nights at Humbug Mountain State park just south of Port Orford, OR.  The park had nice sites with real grass all around, a path to a private like, secluded beach with a river flowing into the ocean.  What a nice place, Port Orford is very small but had a few places to eat and a nice overlook of the Ocean….

Tiffin Service Center

Tiffin Service Center

Once you need service or repairs, you can take the RV to a Tiffin dealer or you can make the trip to Red Bay, Alabama where Tiffin’s are manufactured.  Near the Manufacturing Facility is the Tiffin Service Center and Campground. Here is what the service center and campground looks like.   All in all, we had to wait three days to get into the Express bay and were in for about 4 hours do to the side seal taking longer…

Water Problem…Warranty Coverage

Water Problem…Warranty Coverage

One issue that surfaced soon after we got the RV was the washer only worked once, the second time we tried it, we got a H2O error on the washer. Now with my ability to operate nuclear power plants, this seems like an easy problem to diagnose.  Tested all different combinations on washer, both hot and cold water, no luck.  So is it the washer or the supply, simple test is to remove the hoses from the back of the…
