Rally at Leale’s

A Winnie of a Rally!

Leale’s hosted a February rally for the Lone Cypress Winnitascans. Coaches were weighed, test rides given, questions answered, and a terrific BBQ lunch served…..and great raffle prizes!

Highlights of the presentation and lively group discussion included chassis/suspension improvements, tires, and checking for window leaks (a frequent problem for Winnebago).

Tips from our technicians

If it’s time for you to plan your next trip, be sure to include in your plans a quick check to make sure everything is working properly on your RV.

You’ve done a “walk-around” of your coach. Next, do a “once over” your everyday use items, specifically appliances, awnings, and jacks.

  • Appliances – check your appliances. When was the last time they were serviced? It is recommended that all appliances are serviced once a year. Turn each appliance on to make sure that it’s working properly. Don’t let a problem appliance put a damper on your vacation.
  • Awnings – open them. Look for tears in the fabric and make sure the motors are working.
  • Jacks – run them once. You don’t want unexpected problems.


You have an appointment

As Leale's moves into its busiest time of year, it's more important than ever to drop off your coaches at your specific appointment time.

If you can't make your original appointment, please call us to reschedule.


RV camping tip

Protect outdoor RV power cords with a simple bucket trick.

Try this effective and inexpensive way to protect your power cord connections from ground moisture and rain.

  • All you need is a plastic bucket that’s wide enough to house an RV power cord electrical connection.
  • Make two holes directly across from each other near the bottom of the bucket.
  • Make the holes large enough to allow a cord connection (plug) to fit through.
  • Thread the two ends of the RV power cord together inside the bucket and flip it over to that the bottom of the bucket protects the connection like an umbrella.
  • The RV power cord will now stay suspended off the ground and protected from water.
  • Use a twist tie on each side to prevent water from dripping down the cord.

And now……a word from our customers
