The coach was dropped off early at Lichtsinn's who will be working on it for most of the day. So, Cody and I went touring in the Forest City area. Naturally, our first stop was a the Winnebago Visitor's Center. This features an interesting museum on the 50 years of Winnebago along with some very early coaches and an original Winnebago trailer. They also offer free tours of the factory which is very interesting (I did this a couple years ago).
Take a look at the picture showing the electrical boxes -- I could not take a picture showing all of these since there are about 1,500! This is the site for the Winnebago Grand National Rally (which we plan to attend). It turns out that Winnebago is the only RV builder that has their own rally lot -- with electric for everyone. There are also many water outlets, dump stations, etc. Pretty cool!
