August we left Louisiana to take the RV back to Fleetwood in Decatur, Indiana to have some repairs and warranty work done. There was nothing major to have done, but little things like a cracked shower stall or a punctured slide awning.
The puncture below is probably due to some debris, like a twig, getting caught while bringing the slide in. Of course this is not covered under warranty, but I had it patched, which will work fine.
This is one reason why you should always get on top of the RV and sweep off your slides before you bring them in. I usually sweep them off, but must have missed it this time.

One stop we made during our trip to Decatur was at Camp Lakewood Campground & RV Park in Effingham, Illinois to split up the trip. It is a very nice campground that has a beautiful lake and decent play area for the kids.

We considered coming back here to stay for a month after the RV repairs were done, but they did not offer a thirty day fee so it would cost more to stay there than we like to pay.
Since they come and get your coach at 6 AM, we do not fold out the couch and let the kids sleep on the dinette, so when we bring in the slides, they can continue to sleep.
The dinette is not really that comfortable to sleep on, but the kids seem to do OK. I would not recommend it for adults though.

This is actually the forth picture I took and is why Tia looks like she is upset. She was done with taking pictures after the first one and did not appreciate me making them get back up off their stools to pose again. I'm not sure what Avery is doing.

We have not exactly figured out how we are going to haul them along with the other six bikes we have, but will work it out somehow.
Well that is about it for now, so until next time may God watch over all of our family and friends and keep them safe.
