RV-Max in Sherman told me (a sales guy) that they service units not purchased from them. They also have a location in Fort Worth and Mesquite.

CrestviewRV in Georgetown TX has twice done warranty work for me when they were not my purchasing dealer. They replaced the AC unit and the converter. Both were in the shop for 2 weeks or less, but there was a wait before my drop-off appointment. Nothing outrageous. Within a month if I recall. The second time they were a bit more reluctant, but I pointed out that they'd already done warranty work for me, they looked it up, and said ok. I'm not sure if they would now deny a new customer with a different-dealer warranty issue.

I took my TT back to Funtown Waco to address my warranty punch list and they screwed up more than they fixed and were late finishing it. Now I can't get them to respond to me about the stuff they made worse. I'm working with Coachmen directly to try to resolve it. Can not rate Funtown Waco's service team poorly enough.

You can also try contacting forrest river and asking for approval to get the repairs done on your dime, then get reimbursed.

The good thing about the Rio Grande Valley , is that there are at least three roving RV Repair guys or Companies that do excellent work. First hand knowledge. But, I agree that most of the dealers in the Valley would rather not see you for warranty repair work, or in my case on two occasions did not even order the parts I needed to do my own repairs. Left me hanging for over a month and then nothing.

100% agreement with you on Fun Town in Cleburne... Came out in worse shape than went in!

I also just had an excellent experience with RV Station in Colbert, OK. But it was just one issue. But they got me in quickly with no hassle about not being the selling dealer. Contrast FunTown RV in Cleburne who wouldn't even look at it until Feb 16 when I called Dec 22 for the appt. AND I would have to leave it an indefinite amount of time just for a faulty water pump. RV Station had me out of there in 1.5 hours.

Within the first six months of ownership of our RV had a slide that would not work. Took it to Fun Town RV in Cleburne, I live in Cleburne, didn't buy from FunTown. The service guy told me to drop it on the back lot and would get to it, could take a month or two then there would be needed parts from FR he said. I left the lot with my 5r never to return to FunTown. I got to looking under the slide and seen the broken gear pack. Called FR, they sent me the gear pack "free", it arrived four days later, took me 1 hr to change, working great ever since. Since then I have taken care of a couple of small things myself. Now two years later and out of warranty that wasn't used. If I would have had a frame or structural problem I would have taken or had it sent to FR for repairs, anything else I can handle.

My dealer, Camping World, Houston, TX, does warranty work but it will be at least one month after I call for an appointment. That is the dealer that I bought from. Over the years that experience is normal. Good Luck
