New RV owner in Rochester NY area

Just got our first RV, a new Class C Coachmen Leprechaun. I've got tons of questions, mostly currently about electrical, week long boondocking, solar, etc but I'll ask those in the proper place.

We bought it in Grand Rapids, MI, so we've already had a 2 day shake down cruise

Would love to know more about RV resources in the Rochester/Finger Lakes NY region. I'd like to find RV friendly service providers other than the dealers, for inspections, oil changes, engine work, tire/suspension and the like.

If there were people who've done addons to their late model Coachmen/Forest River RVs, I'd love to hear from you as well.

Your Class C is built on a Ford chassis, so anybody that works on Fords can change your oil, do tune ups, etc. For inspections ( do you mean NYS safety inspections?) any RV dealer has the ability. Your best resource is probably other local campers, so get out there and camp! Lechworth is great, Watkins Glen KOA, Hickory Hill (Bath) are just a few good spots.
