First Class A

Looking forward to being part of the community! We just bought a 2014 Winnebago Sightseer 35G with 12,000 miles. Before we hit the road we would like to have the MH systems checked out and maintenance completed. We live in North Central Illinois, Earlville, and are looking for a reputable facility in our area. Any suggestions/recommendations?

I purchased a similar age and mileage unit last year. My advice would be to plug it in and test everything out inside coach. If it works go camping. It’s just like a house. Chassis I’d find a local truck repair center and have the oil and brake fluid changed out. There could be a ford dealership that handles trucks nearby and if so let them do a look at it. Look at the tires for cracks. I noticed some and replaced them at the local truck repair. You don’t need an expert inside rv. Just go camp a weekend and you will know what’s right and wrong with it. Chances are you will have a good coach and nothing needed.

Thanks, Ohiomike. Sounds like great advice.

No problem ask your auto mechanic if he knows of a good place for rv chassis service. Also when driving around you should see commercial truck tire places check there. I use a place called Harringtonís. Locally owned truck mechanic and roadside assistance. After I bought rv tires and had them installed there I now notice their service trucks all over town doing roadside tire work. Just keep a look out for who you see around town.
