We decided to hit the road at 8:30 this morning... whew... way ahead of our regular time, but that is life! We made a decision to try to head down as far as Winston-Salem, North Carolina, in order to get our flat Jeep tired repaired.
We had to drive over 380 klicks today to achieve this goal, and with the early start, we pulled into Winston-Salem at around 2:45 this afternoon! BONUS: It was sunny and warm! YAAAAAAAAA!!!!!
Instead of getting the tire repaired, I decided to return it to the Company we bought it from... Discount Tires. I seemed to remember that the Salesman told me something about free repairs to this tire if I got a flat...ya, that was way back in New Mexico, last April!
Judy and I walked into the Customer Service Area of the Dealership, and a nice young guy met us and says "Whats up?". I said, "Seems we have run into a problem today..." He says, "No Problem, I am here to fix it for you!" WOW... did he really say that????
We explained how this bucket of scrap metal, met up with our tire on the Hwy. 81, and thus ended up very flat, and with a dent in it! He asked for our key, said he would bring the Jeep right into one of the bays, and take a look at it! I said, "All right!"
You can see our Motorhome parked behind the service bays... yes, that is warm sunshine!
Apparently, when I bought these tires in New Mexico, the Salesperson sold me the life time replacement warranty which I was either not aware of, or forgot about... I am 60 you know!
10 minutes later he calls me in and tells me the tires was destroyed with a 2 inch cut, and they will have to replace this tire for us with a brand new one! Perfect! 10 minutes later, we were back on the road!
The next set of tires I buy, will probably be from these guys! I have said it before in this blog, if someone offers us great customer service, I will recomend them. I will. Discount Tires, aka America's Tires in some locations, are a great Company, that took care of us today, with a smile! We appreciated it!
We drove to a nice RV Park, called Cross Winds Family Campground, an hour south of Winston-Salem, and are here for the night trying to decide what to do tomorrow... yes, love the RV life!
