Description:  Gaffney SC is where our Freightliner Chassis was made so we bring Tawanda here for regular service.  There are 6 work bays and 20 rv sites with 50A electric hookup.  We were on site 5 and in work bay 5.  Dump station and water take on as you enter the fenced area.  Near I-85 at exit 92.

Trash and Recycle:  Dumpster on site.

Activities:  Time for regular service plus our check engine light had recently come on indicating the DEF temperature sensor needed replacing.  Arrived on Thursday for a Friday morning appointment.  Left on Saturday after they topped off our cooling fluid.  We spent a beautiful day at Cowpens National Park Battlefield while Tawanda was being serviced.  There is a nice Visitor Center with an educational film about the battle that happened here on January 17, 1781 between the Patriot Continentals and the British.  There is a nice 1 mile trail on Green River Road (dirt path) where the actual battle occurred.  There is also an original log home (1828) on the property.  It is surrounded by a 3 mile one way auto loop road.
