A Snag in the Travel Plans

This is a picture of the RV park taken this morning, back when we were happy, and thought we would be heading south tomorrow.  Back before the troubles.

This is Canyonville, blink and you'll miss it.  We always wonder why these little towns exist.

We drove over to look at the casino, which is huge, and we saw this.  There is so much to say about this rig.  On the far left, we see the man pouring gas into his external generator.  They're going to run that and camp out in the parking lot.  On the far right, notice the frame on the tow vehicle and the ATVs on top of the rack.  That is a lot of stuff!

And here we have the troubles.  Jim was out dumping the black tank, looking around and he saw this.  This is the big slide on the driver's side.  Those jagged things should not be there, that should be a smooth surface going in and out of the slide.

Here is a close up of the problem. We can't travel with this.  Every time the slide goes in and out the damage will get worse.  We called Elite RV, and they have seen this problem before and know how to fix it.  Unfortunately they can not see us until Wednesday.  I can't stand it.  They are unknown to us, but come highly recommended by this blogger and others.

So, this throws quite the spanner into the travel planning.  Many hours of map and weather forecast consultation are now out the window since we must return to Eugene to get this fixed.  Hopefully we'll get out of the area before winter returns with a vengeance.
Well, the force of the internet is growing weaker by the second and it, and my RV, are just annoying the living snot out of me, so I will bid you good night.
