We have an appointment with George at his home on July 5th to do some work. I am sure Randy will post some information soon. Russell was getting out of the RV business but said he would be happy to help locate parts if needed.

Very good points!!

Default George Morris

As most BlueBird owners know, George Morris is one of the top BlueBird mechanics in the country. After many years with BB, he worked for Bleakly for a period of time, who recently closed down. So George is now on his own. He is hoping to build an independent business servicing and repairing all makes of RV's.

We were fortunate enough to have spent the entire morning with him today. He came buy the campground we were staying at and helped me to address a few electrical issues I was having. A few relatively minor issues that we more an annoyance than anything else. But George came by and in about 2 hours had everything back to normal and working perfect. Including my backup lights that hadn't worked since I bought the coach 9+ years ago.

George gave me permission to post his phone numbers and any other info I wanted regarding him.

Having dealt with George from the time we got the coach, I can only say he's a class act. Knows his stuff. And certainly knows our Birds inside and out. If anyone needs his assistance, please feel free to give him a call. And of course always use him for service work when you're in the Perry GA area. For now, he's a mobile service tech. But he hopes to get a real shop and building at some time in the future. So let's give him our support and prayers that he makes a go of it and becomes super successful. With his knowledge of BB's we certainly need to keep him around for years to come. And oh yeah, he has a file cabinet chock full of chassis diagrams!

his numbers are: cell: 478-235-7467
home: 478-956-2908

Default George has to make a living

As Randy said "Also,George has to make a living,calling him for info is great,but be prepared to mail him a check for his time."

Well said Randy. As I searched for Norcold solutions, a lot of "RV" Tech's have a web site and you can pay with "Paypal" I think. Maybe this is something George can arrange.

But at a minimum, George needs to provide us with a way/address to remunerate him.

I know we all want George to be successful. Others of the "Old Team" are needed also.

We brought our coach to George last weekend. He is doing some needed repairs, but also checking it out, as we asked him, to see if anything else needs to be taken care of before it goes bad while on the road.

It was very comforting to actually talk to someone who really knew and understood the Bluebird. I don't know about anyone else, but we always have some anxiety when we bring the Bird in somewhere to get it fixed. But I am totally comfortable and confident with George working on it.

When we were heading back to Florida, in our car, we were only about an hour heading south when George called. He had already fixed a couple of the problems we had and he was calling to let us know the Bird was in good hands so we could sleep tonight.

I would highly recommend for anyone to utilize George. He is not that far off the interstate and has plenty of room to work on the vehicles.

The set up George has now works great for me. I am able to be a pair of helping hands and I learned more in two days about repairs than I imagined I could do on my own. I am loking forward to taking it back in August to get her ready for football season. Some day, might even be changing my own oil

I will be stopping at George's place in 2 weeks. Other than the obvious, top notch wrench on any Bird, Having been self employed all my life, I know this is new to George and his success will be our success. He has saved my Bacon more than once in the last 6 years, so lets help him make his new shop a Blue Bird haven for service and repairs. As far as calling him for help I'm as guilty as anyone perhaps more so. But that's part of being self employed. If you can figure out a way to get paid for your knowledge in an equitable fashion without insulting anyones senibilities, I'd like to know how to do it. Perhaps the honor system, drop some $$'s and a thank you note in an envelope for his time and knowledge. Paypal takes time and withdrawls cost money and MORE TIME wasted doing all of it. I can say from experiance the greatest waste of time for a skilled craftsman is paperwork & computer time, You don't get paid for that in a one man shop. Whatever you do don't waste his time.

I simply called George and got his address. You're correct, it's much easier that way.
