This is problematic with MANY techs IMHO. I just had a guy from an RV service (in Apache Junction, AZ) emphatically tell me that the cooling unit in my dometic fridge was shot. Cost = $2200 to replace.
Consulted another tech who simply tapped lightly with a small hammer on the coils (to dislodge a "bubble" be suspected was in there) after he spent over an hour diagnosing, and fridge is PERFECT.
Plus, not only did the original idiot not have enough sense to be embarrassed, he actually "went off" on me for consulting the second tech. Guess his best laid plans to screw me over went awry.
So, I agree..... Keep a big heads up for incompetent or maybe downright crooked techs. Some of them just see we MH owners as a bottomless pot of money!!
OBTW.... I have the same symptoms and will trouble shoot/repair it using your technique.
