Service in Western Washington

Hi All,

I recall reading a thread where somebody stated that there was an excellent service center that knows Alpines in the Cenrtralia/Chehalis area in Washington state, but I can't find it. I don't remember if it was Brazel's or not, but if someone here knows I would appreciate it. I just bought a 2002 36MD from one of the members here and would like to take it in for a checkup. Thanks.

I have had Brazels work on my HR a couple of times.
Great people,
Father son combo. I have never been there for more than 3 days waiting for parts, they have a 19 space RV Park area for full timers to stay in while waiting.

Cummins Coach Care in Coburg, OR has taken good care of us. Call Steve Scott. They know Alpines.

Thanks for the responses, everyone. Since I'm basically looking for an inspection I think I'll take it to Brazel's since I'm more in the Northwest corner of Washington state.

Stay away from Cummins NW in Portland! They broke two of our shocks and cracked an interior door as well as putting dings and scratches in the interior woodwork, and we paid them over $22,000 too.

You would think Cummins NW would eventually replace staff at that location, since we hear generally good reports from other CNW locations. I had horrible luck with them 6 years ago, and continue to hear bad reports for the Portland location. Too bad for me, because I live only 15 min away.

Want to get our steering gear rebuilt at Red-Head in Auburn, WA. Does anyone know of a good shop in that area that could pull and reinstall the steering gear as Red-Head does not do that work?

Not in Auburn, WA but they know your coach. Two utility hook up sites if you need to overnight.

We bought our Alpine Coach from Uhlmann's in Chehalis, Washington and they have given us incredible service. They've changed their name to Awesome RV, but it's the same great people. We had our 2007 36er serviced there last month before we did our annual trek to Arizona.
We've called them from all over the US when we've had problems and they've always helped us find a solution or a place to get service. We can't say enough good about them!
