I own a big rig salvage yard so I have the tools and know how to do everything myself. The only thing I've carried mine in for is a slide adjustment because I'm not comfortable doing it. The slide would tip out at the top when sliding out and I thought it needed adjusting but they informed me it was suppose to do that.

I owned and ran an automotive machine shop for many years. Thus all the mechanics came to me to get engines rebuilt along with other work. I delt with hundred in not thousands of mechanics over the years. Of these I could count on one hand the ones I would let touch any car much less motorhome of mine even if they did it for free. So for me it is always toolbox!!

But, I'd never be able to afford a 45' Class A if I had to reach for the checkbook every time. So, mark me down as "toolbox."

You USAF types will appreciate that we have our own 781 for the bus: to date, a whopping 70 writeups annually that need fixing. With three exceptions -- that was to install new tires, repack wheel bearings and replace intake valve solenoids -- I did it all.
I was the mechanic you called LOL Ever writeup the squeak in pilots seat. I signed it off removed mouse.
