Portland Area shop that works on Roadmaster chassis

My mobile tech tells me he thinks I have a leak in a rear air bag. He doesn’t work on chassis. Need a recommendation for where to take my 04 Windsor for a check and chassis and pac brake lube. Tia Russ

What chassis? The local Spartan authorized shop used to be an independent truck shop. Been years since I was there and it certainly wasn't set up for RV's. I'd stay away from the freight shaker place by Jubitz. They promised the towing company they'd get my rig right in. After getting towed there they denied saying that, but Coach Net had it on tape. I had major engine repairs done at Cummins NW, tgey broke an interior door and two shocks and refused to take responsibility. Cost me about $1,000 to repair. If you were closer to Coburg OR I'd say the Cummins shop there.
Personally I like the shop just off the freeway in Ridgefield WA, about mp 13. They have changed names but still the same crew. Western Star Northwest.

You are only 2 hours from Coburg, that's where I would go, they are the Monaco experts.

First, most of us have air leaks. There are lots of solenoids and air valves in these coaches and over time the small o-rings deteriorate and develop leaks. But, usually the air bags last a very long time.

I would recommend Source Enginering in Eugene OR. Many of there guys worked at the orginal Monaco manufactuing plant.

Ditto, I said Coburg, to me that's the same as Eugene they butt up to each other, but Source is the place to go as vito.a said. Good Luck

First place to check would be REV center in Coburg. Source told me they don't work on Roadmaster chassis. Should be someone around Coberg. The dealers in Junction City should know of someone in the area as well. A lot of the old Monaco guys are still with, now REV, center in Coburg.

Also, Henderson Line-Up in Grants Pass. They are a little further south, but did awesome work on identifying and fixing my air leak.

Source in Eugene has worked on the Roadmaster chassis we have and has supplied parts I need last year where we had a problem in OH. You can also try Kaiser Brake & Alignment in Eugene. I'm sure they would do an air bag replacement.

Any independent big rig shop working on tractor trailers can change out air bags and anyother air fittings, valves.
If they will take you in.
Roadmaster
Redmaster
Shakers or peterbuilt means nothing to them.
There are two or three companies that make all the air system components and they will have access.
What the shop foremans dont like is the
ELITIST ATTITUDES OF SOME
RV OWNERS.
THINKING THEY HAVE SOMETHING
SPECIAL,
THEY CAN SMELL YOU A MILE AWAY.
we all have a big rig air system
They all, spartan, Roadmaster use standard off the shelf air ride parts.
Just like every Tom, Dick and Ricky's Tractor trailer rig running down the road.
