Mobile mechanic Los Angeles

My problem is I store the coach at Norwalk.
I have a radiator or air con small leak and the Hydraulic pump is leaking.
I leave USA on Wednesday and have no reliable mechanic to call on.
I would think a competent honest mobile mechanic would put me at ease. (The list of repairs left for the last guy were not done even given 3 months to complete.

Surely there must be some good Mechanical businesses in the area.
We are from Australia so don't get a chance to move the coach from here to there for various repairs.
When we arrive every day is precious so don't want to burn a week or 2 doing repairs.
Some advice would be appreciated

Pete's Tire and RV service Pete's Road Service Inc.- Truck RV Tire Services. The were at the FMCA Rally in Pomona last month, and I have seen them at many of the rallies. I did not need their service, but they sure did a lot of work at the Rally for many other RVers.

Thanks for the tip
In the mean time I had a ring around and settled on LAFreightliner which isn't far from Norwalk
They suggested there is a company that will deliver it back to the storage facility?
The radiator leak is troubling me with potential cost blowouts.
Can't imagine what a recore would cost.

I hate LA traffic.
Ran out of time to take the coach to LAFreightliners
In the same street as our storage facility is a Ford truck dealer Carmenita Truck Centre. So I will give a review of their business when they have completed the repairs.
Funnily enough when I did a walk around with the Service Manager I found quite a few Squarks.

Hi Steve:
I
Have a similiar coach. And live in ca. nearby. I have been in the HD truck parts business for many years. Carmenita is a good place. Not sure they are the best place for an RV of that type. But if I can help let me know. I suspect you are back down under by now. Try me at stretch65@gmail.com for more.

Well the work is completed.
The radiator has been rebuilt, serpentine belt replace.
Carmenita Ford confirmed that the CAC looks fine
Total bill $3500. Can't complain about that. They took $500 off the quote before they started work
Although I've not had confirmation, I believe my radiator was steel which would account for a smaller recore price.
They charged me $1000 for the rebuild and the balance for parts inc bottom radiator hose labour and serpentine belt.
The bill hurt a lot more in Aussie Dollars but job is done and that's the main thing.
Although I was skeptical first up, I'd be now happy to recommend them.
