1/16/2013 Bound for Lazy Days

(Seffner, FL)

No, the title doesn’t mean we’re going someplace to lay around and not do much.  We’re head near Tampa to an RV Center called Lazy Days. 

We called several weeks ago to set up an appointment to have the axles on our 5th wheel looked at again.  We had caps on the end of the axles replaced when we were in Jacksonville back in October.  That evidently wasn’t the problem.  Our axles are oil washed, at least I think that’s the right term, and Bob noticed oil leaking when we got to Key Largo.  We wanted to make sure we used a well known, well equipped RV repair center so we opted to wait until our stint was over and chose Lazy Days.  It also helps that they now sell Mobile Suites too.

We had an easy run from Fort Myers to Seffner, which is just outside of Tampa.  Lazy Days is not only a large RV dealership/service center, they also have a huge campground.  HUGE!  I had called couple of weeks ago and made a reservation for two nights, the 15th and 16th.  I thought our appointment was on the 16th and at that time we thought that we would drive straight through from Key Largo.  I called Lazy Days service center for something and learned that we had an appointment on the 17th NOT the 16th.  Thankfully, I made that call.  So I called the campground back to cancel the 15th and request the 16th and 17th instead.  Well, the Tampa RV show is going on and there isn’t a space to be had.  I explained that we were having service work done and that it would possibly take two days.  The lady put me on hold and came back and said she had another space so we would have to change sites.  That works because we were going to pull it out of the site in the morning anyway.  So were all set before ever left Key Largo.
Now we arrive and the site we were going to have to vacate and move to another somehow became available for both nights after all.  Upon check-in were given cards that were good for breakfast and lunch in the Front Porch Restaurant here on site.

I have to tell you, this is one fast paced, always look both ways before moving kind of place.  Between motor homes, towable types and the golf carts these roads are dangerous.
We got settled in, had dinner, enjoyed the campgrounds excellent WIFI connection and their 99 channels of cable TV. 

Our appointment is at 8:20 a.m. tomorrow morning so its going to be an early morning for us.
