Where are we today?
If you remember, our fridge door hinge broke back on December 2nd while we were at The Oaks. We thought we had fixed it with epoxy, but it broke and fell off again. Calls and emails to Norcold, then a search on their web site to find a parts supplier and we found Dick Gore RV World in Jacksonville.
Just north of the dealership we found an RV Park, which is part of our Coast to Coast affiliated parks. 3 nights booked and that is where we are now. We went to Dick Gores and picked up the door. Very easy to fit, including a reinforcement bracket for the hinge. Hopefully it will not break. Luckily we have a bumper to bumper warranty on the RV so we only had to pay $50 with $171 coming from Secure Warranty. Hooray!!
Pecan Park is new and very clean and neat. Concrete pads for everyone. The park is long and narrow, being about 1 km long fron front to back. There are almost 200 70' X 40' pull through sites. It is very convenient to the I95 and right next to a big flea market. There is a pool. a big laundry room and a catch and release pond. Picking up the satellites was a piece of cake because there are no trees. The only downside is that it is on the landing approach to the Jacksonville International airport. There are frequent planes coming in to the airport, but, thank goodness, there are no overnight landings. We did get to see the undercarriage of many jets as they were coming in to land. We would stay there again.
