Where Do You Service your Spartan Chassis?

We just recently purchased a 1994 Winnebago DP and would like to take it into a Service Center to have a safety check done and the Air Brakes serviced. Yes, we have been to Spartanchassis.com and found the list of service centers for each state. Is this where you take yours or what other route do you take? We are currently in Massachusetts and will soon be traveling to NJ and NY. We travel the whole country. Though not new to the RV lifestyle, we are new to the Motorhome arena. Appreciate any advise. Thank you!

That's a very nice looking coach you have.
How many miles on the clock. ?

I would call the closest spartan service center listed and see if you can get it in.
Big rig truck centers may work also.
I like the independent guys.
The smaller shops.

Thank you! We are very pleased with it. It had 29,127 miles on it when bought it. We’ve added just under 400. Generator had 211 hours.

Thank you for the suggestion. We have an appointment at one of the suggested “big rig” shops listed. Both my husband and I are not feeling very good about it. Just thought we’d ask and see what others do.

The air brake system on your coach is common to heavy truck technicians.

You could contact any heavy truck dealer, or a well known independent truck shop and get it inspected. Any Peterbilt, Mack, Freightliner, international etc... should handle it no sweat.
Ask about a full Federal DOT annual inspection. Most have a set price for the insection, and it'll include more that just brakes.

.... nice looking coach btw!

This pdf will explain in detail how and why air brakes work, and study material for performing a standard air brake test, which should be performed every day you intend to drive the vehicle.https://cdlstudy.com/manuals/Air_Brakes.pdf
