    Annoying cop out so you can just go make rounds with customers expecting you. What happened to fixing the unit when they call. If you have to get a part go pick it up. Be done with it

    It's hit and miss.

    A lot of times if you need something that's an OEM part there's nowhere around here you could drive to and pick it up.

    I agree, I was on a panini warmer that needed a neon switch, my truck stock switch was about an 1/8" too big. So I ran to the nerdy ham radio store to get a switch.
    Dispatch called and gave me a little gruff. Why would i return Monday for a switch, the customer wanted it to run this weekend?

    If you want to see a real cluster **** work for Kohler as their warranty rep, I did N texas/So Oklahoma, some calls were over 8 hours of windshield time, but they would let me carry any stock on my truck, I would have to order every part in, and when I got it make the trip again, but they paid like a slot machine, and windshield time is easy, but a lot of the time it was just an air switch that was a buck or two

    And them and Carrier thinks Houston/Pasadena is in N Texas, and Ok city was in southern Oklahoma
