2021 - Service Time
This story happened on: 12/03/2021
1st march 2021 and it's service time for Veronica. (Pegasus Verona)
September 2020 was the last time i Hooked it up.
Anyways an hours later I'm all set up and away we go, talk about nerves !
It's only a short drive to the service place, arrived later then planned due to traffic. followed directions and pulled into the small car park. Engineer comes walking down. you need to go to the side door. I was a little angry with myself as i was going to pull on the main road to check, however the signage told me to go to this point and not the other, the other entrance specifically said not for servicing.
I had to back it up. Heart palpitations started, but he assisted in stopping the traffic.Out she came and phew no damage.
Around at the next entrance now and in she goes, again having to back it up.It's amazing how easy it looks, I've done it many a times but I always doubt myself when doing it. Van & keys dropped off.
3 days later I'm picking it up £200 later and the news every caravaner don't want to hear, but as a Bailey owner, expected. Damp! and lots of it. Talk about being saddened. my pride and joy, my 10 year investment as water ingress.
Whats more annoying is the dealer i purchased from isn't open. So off it goes back to storage, little deflated but that is life.
Feeling more positive as the weather improves, its professionally valeted in storage. Gleaming again.
I myself gave the insides a good seeing to. Pinched the Lodgers Dyson V7, an amazing bit of kit for storage.
So What's next....
The 12th, all being well. Seasonal pitch, with a leaky van and no doubt back of the queue for repairs.
I was hopeful of ordering a brand new caravan in February as a treat for all the hard work during lockdowns. But they closed just at decision time.
