Welcome to the best RV forums on the web...imho!!

Wow, I agree that you should tell this "professional" to go take a long walk off a short pier!!

In addition to the great advise in here, I'd also suggest you visit some local RV dealers where you live and chat with them and visit their maintenance department. Having a local contact to answer questions and look up prices has been a great help for us with our two campers we've owned. (Especially when you're out in the boonies camping and have a situation you've never seen and having someone to call for advise.)

Hi, we took it for a safety inspection and to have the roof checked. We were just being conscientious and we knew there was a leak in the roof. The guy started out by saying the roof repair/replacement would cost $16,000. He said that with a straight face! I honestly thought it was a joke. We paid $1,500.00 fifteen hundred for the RV. He went on to list a myriad of things that needed repair. Basically he was milking it and suggested repairs that were not necessary. We threw are hands in the air not because it needed a roof repair or new propane line but because we bought it in Oregon and once we got it to California we found out we were going to have a heck of a time , if not impossible , to pass smog here. We donated it to a homeless family and they parked it in a friends driveway as non op
