Alvarado Service Center

Just called the REV service center in Alvarado, TX for some warranty work I needed done. Was informed they no longer will do warranty work. This is very disappointing since I live close by and this was the deciding factor in purchasing a Southwind over a Tiffin.

Call the factory and be sure you are getting the correct information. However, I have used them several times....and will never ever go back.

Factory Confirmed it. I also asked if this was just for warranty work or are they closing down. Her answer, "We don't know."

The whole setup down there was strange. Something in Texas state law that prohibited operating a service center unless you were a dealer or something like that. The REV Alvarado service center was actually operated by MHS next door.

I bought it at MHSRV. Problem is there, it's rediculous wait times to get it in.

Sometimes independent shops are able to work on warranty items. Pick up the phone, call a number of different shops, and ask a bunch of questions. Can't hurt anything.
May your smiles be many and the miles be plenty.

I talked with Fleetwood and was told the only places to get warranty work are dealers who sell Fleetwoods. Really limits the options. Only dealer in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area is MHSRV. Anyway, I mainly posted to let others know that the South REV service center is no longer for warranty work.
