- I went over and double checked the thermostats to make sure they were at a reasonable level. If the units were unoccupied I reduced the heat to 55 degrees to save the association money. Additionally, unplugged all electronic devices from the electrical sockets as that draws electricity even when not in use. I left clocks and cable boxes plugged in as well as major appliances, but mainly did coffee makers etc. - During my inspection of all the units I found that several sliding doors were not closed due to negligence or would not lock due to mechanical problems. I had Austin service and repair all sliding doors in all of the units to ensure they are in good working order and lock properly. - I also removed some signs that were plastered all around on a few of the units. Austin had to remove some of the remaining adhesive with special spray and a putty knife..but that was taken care of. - The linens have been completely inventoried by the cleaning staff. I took the liberty of touring the units with my Father, who has supplied some of the linens over the years. We found that while some are old and stylishly outdated (open to interpretation) and not particularly fancy, the remaining linens were in very good shape. He advised that upgrades to 100% cotton sheets etc. would make the sheets softer, but would require ironing to prevent wrinkles which would be inadvisable. He said the towels could be upgraded if the association wishes, but with the high iron content of Ocean City water they would wear rather quickly even when relatively new. I propose replacing linens as we need, as the association's money situation is not adequate to do a large overhaul of the linens. Overall, we were both very impressed with the condition and cleanliness of the units. In his opinion the units were nicer than most of the timeshares he had ever been in, and the cleanliness of the units were the best he had ever seen.
