Sep 15, 2017 - Visit and Tour Winnebago Junction City Plant

September 15 – Visit and Tour Winnebago Junction City Plant Kathleen made contact on Facebook with Winnebago’s Product Manager for Class A diesel motor homes who offered to give us a tour of the plant in Junction City. We left early for our 2-hour drive to the plant and spent 2 hours with Kevin Atkinson touring the assembly area where Journey and Tour motor homes were being assembled. I was very impressed with their emphasis on quality of the products – both the design and assembly. The ends of tubes are filled with caulk so that water will...

May 20, 2013 - Guranty RV for repairs

OK, my bad! This entry has been sitting here underway since the 20th of May and since it's now the 3rd of June I'll try to complete it. We had a couple of minor items fixed for an outrageous price, so we decided to hold on the major item, our A/C for somewhere else more reasonable in cost. We hung out here at their service center park through the Memorial Day weekend.

May 5, 2013 - Over the Cascades to Eugene, OR

Last Friday, Bob and I made separate trips to the same region in Oregon....the Willamette Valley. I was on my way to Eugene with some friends to experience a Christian women's conference and Bob had to take the motorhome for repairs. Heading west out of John Day, west of Redmond, we crossed over the Cascade Mountains. The Cascades actually originate in southern British Columbia, through Washington, Oregon and into northern California. What a beautiful drive through these mountains and with the McKenzie River paralleling the road in many...

Apr 23, 2012 - Home maintenance and a little remodel

It is that time in all RV'ers lives when you need to bite the bullet and replace the tires on your road weary 40' motorhome. For us, that meant 6 new tires. We also needed the engine and chassis serviced and a number of other maintenance/repair items that needed attention. This includes a few other expenses like a new couch, etc. The following is the list: Superior Tire, Eugene: FMCA/Michelin Tire Program Click for...

Jul 21, 2011 - Hanging on

An expensive conversion - in a town that needs the work Thursday: Today we left the Mt. Hood watershed, and headed west and then south to the town of Junction City. Junction City, Oregon is between Salem and Eugene, and we had an afternoon appointment there, at a business called Innovative Coachworks. Innovative Coachworks had a booth at the Redmond Rally, and we talked to the owner’s wife about a TV conversion they do. Today we were going to their shop to get an estimate. The conversion consists of swapping out the big, heavy TV that takes...

Sep 24, 2010 - Richardson County Park, near Eugene, Or

We headed east toward Eugene to a beautiful Lane County park, Richardson. It has a huge reservior lake and big sites. We had a huge site, probably the biggest site that we have ever had!!! We enjoyed the sunny weather with bike rides throughout the park. We also enjoyed riding our bikes to a nearby fruit/vegetable stand where we got fresh corn and peaches. We also picked our own black berries and rode to the lake almost every day.

Jun 11, 2010 - Junction City, Oregon

People sometimes think that full-time RVers are roughing it. Well, we aren’t roughing it any more! We have just entered the High Definition Television age. We may have mentioned that one of our two TVs burned up last winter, so we have been limping along with only one old analog TV. In order to replace the big old tube TV, which was located in a cabinet over the steering wheel, it was necessary to retrofit the front end to accommodate a flat-screen TV. So we headed back to Davis Cabinets in Junction City. These folks had done an admirable...

Apr 9, 2010 - A quick trip to Junction City

When we had repair work done in January 2010 a new motor for our door awning was ordered but was likely to take over a month to come in. We had agreed to return on our way north to have it fitted. We therefore made a quick journey inland to have the new motor fitted and for the first time it cost us nothing. In fact we had a small refund as the original diagnostic work on the awning we had picked up but this was now able to be reclaimed from our extended warranty insurance.

Jan 7, 2010 - Not good news

Good News: The slideout only needed an adjustment. The hinge on ther water bay was easily repaired. The inside step cover only needed an adjustment. The water leak in the cabinents seemed to have been mainly solved THE BAD NEWS! The furnace needs a new motor and bearings (virtually a rebuild!) and a new motor fan for zone one as well as a complete flush out of the system. The power door awning motor needs to be replaced. After two days in the workshop most of the minor problems were solved. However the furnace and the door awning need new...

Jan 5, 2010 - Uneventful journey down to Junction City

We crossed the border into the USA this time with no problems. After filling up with fuel and food we headed south on Interstate 5 through Washington State and into Oregon, travelling over two days arriving at Junction City on Tuesday afternoon. We are booked into tomorrow for the furnace, slide out and a few other problems to be looked at. What fun it will be to get up at 6.30am!

Sep 2, 2008 - Staying in a parking lot

You just haven't lived unless you have stayed in Guarantee's RV Repair, Body Shop RV Park in Junction City, OR. It is for the most part, an overflow parking lot. On the east and west side a half dozen parking spots with water and a few electrical posts. We are in Junction City for a week or so to get some cabinet work done at Davis Cabinet, two crunched panels replaced and some maintenance and/or preventative maintenance on the coach that we did not get finished back on the 26th.

Aug 19, 2008 - Coach Delivery

Time is getting closer to take delivery of our Intrigue. We have had two other Country Coaches, one was a 1999 Intrigue with one slide and the latest was a 2004 Aluure with two slides. This coach is a four slide Intrigue and is forty five feet long which gives us a lot more living space as well as an abundunce of storage. We hope to utilize this coach a lot more and to take many trips with it and see our wonderful country.
