Front End Alignment

I know this topic has been discussed and I've read most of it.
My problem is I can't find a shop to do the alignment
Campers Inn way out West of Charlotte NC in Kings Mt is my dealer
They don't know of anyone
Tom Johnson in Concord NC (one of the biggies),all the way east of Charlotte NC knows no one In fact the service manager asked me to call HIM if I found someone
The Four Ford dealers around Charlotte,No Can Do!
Your telling me NO ONE in A huge Metropolitan area aligns Trucks, buses, or RVs
I've read that to have this warranted it had to be done in first 90 days
Well I told my dealer about in at 30days but what can I do if I can't find a shop to do the work
Local Charlotte folks, I need your help, Thanks
I'm looking for a side business
Maybe I found my niche

No local Ford dealer could even tell you who works on Ford trucks?? Sounds like a call to Ford headquarters is needed. Doesn't matter that it is a MH. A Ford truck dealer should be the place to take it.

On my Chevy, what my local dealer couldn't do, he told me the (Chevy) truck dealer that could.

A lot of dealers can align it, but do not have a bay tall enough to clear the roof.

I used Blacks Tire in Florence, sc. A little far for you to drive.. Look for a big truck shop. They can align it.

We don't use a Ford dealer? Why not just call Alignment shops?

I am aware of one Truck alignment shop in Charlotte but first and foremost I don't trust them cause they tried to rip me off on my old RV on other issues and secondly they will not do warranty work so it's pay someone you don't trust then fight to be reimbursed
The original post was put out my me cause I couldn't believe all the units serviced and sold in this area and not one shop could be recommended by any of the big RV dealers or Ford dealers

FYI I did submit to Campers Inn in Mocksville and within a few weeks received reimbursement for everything except the cam bushings that needed to be replaced in order to bring the frontend to specification. I did not get preauthorization before the work. I submitted via email to Campers Inn. I figured, if you do not ask, you certainly do not get. Good luck. When you go to Myrtle Beach you will pass very close to Florence. Might be an idea.
