Ok, I did not heed these words of wisdom. I just picked my motorhome up from the dealer for the third time to fix the leaking windshield, Mike Thompson RV in Santa Fe Springs, brought it home, gave it a quick wash before I head out tomorrow and sure as s**t the windshield leaked again. Luckily it's not heavy leakage, just trickles, and we're in parched So Cal. I tried to have faith, they seem like nice enough guys, but the gas I've spent on 3 trips trying to get a warranty repair probably cost more than just paying OOP getting it done right once. SMH. I'm looking for someone to do it right in North OC if anyone has any recommendations.

I know the feeling Antone. I learned very quickly that a, unfortunately, great number of dealers are idiots. Yes, there are some good ones out there but, not many. I found a very good, qualified, service shop in Chino that I've gotten to trust. I also have a great repair guy that comes to my home to do repairs. Has over 25 years in the RV industry.

There's a real down to earth mom n pop shop called Inland Valley RV off the 10 just north of Costco. Street name escapes me. I used to take my TT there when I worked in Rancho Cucamonga. Super nice people, great little shop. They do collision repair and extended warranty work. Repaired my TT nicely after a pretty gnarly blowout. The last time I was in there the owner was remodeling an older coach, doing it up real nice. Been a few years though. If you're in that area, you should go check it out. The store itself is pretty cool, I spent a few lunch breaks just browsing around.

I've been to IVRV also Antone. They are a good shop. I just felt more comfortable at McBride's in Chino. I am able to talk with the service people easier and get a better understanding of what's what. McBride's also will do warranty work if you have a ESP.
