Freightliner Chassis shop?

Has anyone trusted a freightliner chassis shop to repair a leaky wheel seal and hydraulic hoses? I find my coach stuck in Las Vegas and too much fluid coming out of the rear driver side wheel. The hydraulic leak, looks like a hose to a radiator fan, may last until I drive home to Oregon, but not sure about the wheel.

Almost any large chain truck stop - T/A will be able to fix the axle seal leak, they do it all the time on big trucks and the seals will probably be in stock and 1/2 the $ of what Freightliner will charge.

If ya can't fix it yourself ya got to make a decision and choose. Better you driving into the shop then on the back of a tow truck.

is yours a country coach? if so, it's not frightliner chassis i would guess, but either gilig (prior to 1998) or dynomax.

anyway, please refer to this list and find those with excellent comments

Thanks everyone! Ended up using a former Country Coach Tech in the L.A. Area. Simple job with a mobile repair truck.

Who did you use? A lot of X CC techs rotate between Oregon and the desert area but I thought it would be a little warm for them to be around this time of year.

I would really like to know. I know a lot of X CC techs but don't remember any "Tony". I do the LA/desert area and it would be nice to have another source.
