Kudos & Kindness

On May 8 we were traveling through the Lake Tahoe area to attend a happy event, albeit with some trepidation of a mechanical problem with our motor home. Aside from the happy event, which turned out fine, a problem finding someone to work on a diesel-powered RV became a real challenge. That is until we pulled into Steve’s Transmission service in South Lake Tahoe.

We were immediately met by Bobby Arzio, master technician, who listened as I explained our situation and reacted like the good Samaritan he is. After a short road test and a courtesy check on the drive-line, Bobby had the problem solved. However, finding the heavy-duty parts was of concern. We stood by while he worked his resources to locate just what we needed. Keep in mind this is a shop that does not normally work on large vehicles.

The time was near for the shop to close for the day. Bobby and Sieg offered a place on their property for us to stay in our RV overnight with electricity. We can’t say enough about the courtesies extended to us as ordinary travelers during a time of need.

The next morning Bobby was in the shop early assembling the parts to reinstall and get us on our way. The day before he estimated the job would be completed by 10 a.m. We were on our way at 9:30 a.m. We believe this was way beyond the call of duty. These two professionals, Bobby and Sieg, are a credit to their profession. We will always be grateful for their compassion and concern in our regard.

I still believe there was a star shining down on that small shop in the heart of paradise.
