Need a repair shop near Chi-Town ?

Does anyone know of a good service/ repair shop in the general Chicago area they could recommend? We are 1 hour west of Chicago, but I would be willing to drive a ways to find a reputable RV or truck shop. I recently brought my coach to a Freightliner truck dealer in Plainfield, IL called Transchicago Truck Group of Joliet for major service that was long overdue. Their hourly rate is $179.75, , I was hoping I could find someone that has a more reasonable rate, or maybe that's a normal rate (?) I can do some service like changing the oil & filters, but I'm afraid to monkey with the hydraulics, the transmission or cooling system, since they appear much more complicated than the cars & SUV's I've worked on in the past.

An hour or two east of Chicago is Elkhart (I think about an hour) and you find not the repair shops but the FACTORY SERVICE CENTERS there.

I know I parked in Kalamazoo area, hit Elkhart and Chicago in one day, then back to K-zoo after the concert (Daughter was one of the performers) have recording somewhere.

Home is where I park it!
