Off we went to the assigned repair bay for the morning's work and we actually arrived early for our 6:45 am appointment. Of course, the bay doors were closed and I had to sit in the lane waiting for them to be ready for us. Finally, Gerry went inside the building and asked them if they were ready. Yep said the worker as he sat there eating his breakfast. He opened the door and I pulled the MH into the space.
We should have figured this out, but even if we had, we couldn't really do anything about it. They said to open the front slides and then take all the stuff out of the cabinets on the slide they were going to repair. WHAT! Take it all out and place it on the other side of the MH. A little lead time on this would have been appreciated, but wasn't volunteered. Not surprising.
We spent the next 20 minutes or so taking all the stuff out and placing it on the floor, sofa & the sink area. At least we kept everything in order to make it easier to put it back in the cabinets.
We finished the task above around 7:30 am and were very hungry since we only had coffee for breakfast before going to the repair bay. The workers all said how great Swamp John's restaurant was for all meals. Off we went to find the place and I am glad we had a recommendation for the place, otherwise we most likely would not have stopped there. It was quite rustic and full of locals, so that told us the food must be good.
Gerry ordered the breakfast buffet and I had a huge omelet. Neither of us could finish our meals and brought the leftovers back to the motor home. The food was good and we will go back for their lunch or dinner depending how long we will be here.
Since we had leftovers, we headed back to the motorhome to put them in the refrigerator. This is the sight we saw when we got back to the repair bay.

|How do you like the open look?|

|Cause of the repair. One rotten board.|
Of course, the 20 minutes it took to remove the stuff from the cabinets took hours to put back. We decided to go through everything and cull out some items we don't need or use anymore. We managed to free up some space and organize the cabinets better. It's been a year since we dealt with all the stuff in the cabinets. It was almost a year ago that we transferred the stuff from our old motorhome.
There is a local Mexican restaurant in Red Bay and we tried it out for dinner this evening. After having so many great Mexican restaurants in Tucson, this one didn't measure up. Nothing ventured, nothing gained though.
