Tiffin Service Campground

Our 2014 Tiffin Allegro Open Road 31SA needed some work done on it so we brought it back to the factory.

The Tiffin factory is in Red Bay, Alabama. We checked into the Tiffin Service Campground on a Saturday. Its $20.00 a night. The campground is basically a parking lot with full hook-ups, laundry, parts store, Allegro Club Store, waiting area and plenty of Tiffin service bays. When we checked into the campground we were immediately given a paper (punch list) to put in writing what we needed to be done on the rv.

We turned in our punch list of things to be fixed on Saturday. The Tiffin service bays are closed on the weekend.  We found the Sparks Restaurant in Belmont, MS its a good breakfast place. The coffee was hot and the biscuits were good.

At 7:00 am on Monday morning Jason addressed all our concerns.

On Wednesday the upholstery team started working on our L-shaped couch. We had a rip on the arm of the couch and upholstery damage. They took the whole couch out and re-upholstered it. The staff said it was a bad batch of upholstery. We paid for the labor done on the upholstery. It took them 8 hours to re-upholster the couch.

Our dinette was damaged so that was replaced.

I’m so glad our upholstery is fixed. I was embarrassed by it. We covered it up with sleeping bag liners and blankets. lol

Tiffin has a dog-friendly waiting room. I liked talking to the other ladies in the waiting area. I was surprised how good Joey (our dog) behaved himself.

On Thursday our rv entered the service bay at 7:00 am and by lunch, our punch list was done. It was worth the drive to Alabama.

Punch List- All fixed at good prices

  • our shade motor was fixed
  •  bathroom fan lid fixed
  • oven door fixed
  • two-seam on the outside of rv fixed
  • upholstery fixed

Happy RVing!

A relationship is like a house. When the light bulb burns out you don’t go and buy a new one, you fix the light bulb. by relationshipblog.com

Our shower started leaking this weekend. Instead of bringing it into the shop right away Kevin did the work himself. The shower was leaking from lack of caulking around the shower drain.

Kevin unscrewed the inspection port so we could see under the shower.

He saw what was causing the water to leak on the floor.

Using the flashlight he saw what was causing the water to leak on the floor.

He went to the local RV shop and bought some caulking to reinforce the shower drain.

After the caulking dryed I poured water down the drain while Kevin looked for leaks. All Clear! The leak is fixed without making a trip to the RV shop.
