What is your Great and To-Avoid Service Centers

KennyGolub in his thread Battery AND Transmission warnings
has finally got his ordeal fixed by what he says is a great FL service in Canton Ohio. Earlier in his thread, he had miserable experiences with a Allison and a FL center.

I thought it might be beneficial to everyone to give names and locations of where they either had great service or service to avoid.

My Great Service
Risco RV, Farmingdale, NJ
Freightliner Oasis, Gaffney, SC

My To-Avoid
Dylans RV, Sewell, NJ
Camping World, Bridgeport, NJ

Have not had any "to avoids" yet, thankfully. But I will recommend Freightliner of Kalamazoo/Mattawan truck and Oasis dealer. They do quality work at fair/reasonable prices.

Oh, forgot the most important place. Forest River diesel factory support in Elkhart. They go above and beyond!

If you're in Colorado Springs and need service, be sure to AVOID Premier auto and rv.
This place overcharges big time!

If at all possible, I try to avoid ANY FL shop this is NOT an Oasis. Truck mechanics HATE working on motor homes.

There is an independent in shop Pahrump, NV (Rod Paulson Inc) that does good work.

Boowho??

Can you really blame them ? Having to work on that engine from going through the inside of a nicely finished coach, that's tight for space at best. Working off of carpet or ceramic flooring that people will scrutinize for any trace of dirt or grease. Truly a nightmare IMO .

Hans Freightliner, near Cleveland Ohio, is listed as an oasis service center, but when you call them (both times I tried), all they want to say is that their priority is trucks and they will get to your coach when they have time.

Jus' sayin'

Are you willing to expound on Dylan's and the Bridgeport Camping World. I am just wondering why as I have considered both but have not done so yet.

I give two thumbs up to American RV in Grand Rapids, MI. And don't be scared off because they share a facility with Camping World. All the techs and service reps belong to American, so even if you purchase service from CW, the ones doing the work belong to American and the work performed meets the high standards that they set.
