Recommendations for repair facility near Livermore, California?

We're going to have a brake controller installed in our 2006 SunSeeker Ford 3100SS. The repair facilities that have done our work so far have not really filled us with confidence.

The first one (the dealer where we bought it) installed the Surge-Guard in the one orientation that the instructions, and we, specifically said to NOT install it. This was also the dealer who said we don't have a galley tank and to not worry about the "Galley" button on the monitor panel. While installing a Waste-Master drain cap we found an "extra" valve handle on the starboard side, under a tiny sticker saying "Galley Tank Drain."

These people also "glued" our television antenna to the roof when the cleaned and sealed it.

Another facility messed-up a tire-monitor installation that had to be fixed by a local tire shop, at extra expense and hassle. And we drove fifty miles on a flat tire.

So, we're hoping the third time will work. Any good RV repair shops near Livermore, California?

If it is just a standard brake controller you could also look for any marine or service trailer facility, they normally do this all the time. You can also check with your local Ford dealer many times they do this as well.
