This will be my 6th rv, I ise it for work and live in it for 5 months out of the year, getting pretty good at fixing these things... WHAT!!!..you mean rv's break down......haha... And if any one else has one of these rv's of you could give me a heads up on them as well. Thanks and GOD BLESS.

Try Gibbs truck Service in OXNARD CA or BENCHMARK in LA. I had service done by Gibbs in
Fresno CA. They were very knowledgable.

Colton Truck has many favorable reviews on the Country Coach section of this forum. I have no personal experience with them.

Might also try M & M Coach Specialists in Chino. They are certified in most of the chassis.

I haven't used them yet but I will when I need it.

Good luck
