Question North Chicago, IL Service Recommendations

I will be moving to North Chicago, IL in a couple months and I am looking for recommendations on reputable shops to get my rig serviced. It is a Fleetwood Discovery 39S DP. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

General RV in Huntley IL right off 90 is a Fleetwood dealer and have handled our needs. If you want to go further west (its a long way) Sunny Island RV (formerly Als Motorhomes) do great work! They are in Rockford.

There's a Cummins Coach Care in Oak Creek, WI, just on the south side of Milwaukee. I-94 RV Center is pretty close to you on Russell Road close to the IL-WI border just off I-94. Camping World is in Island Lake, just north of Rte 176.

Sunny Island did CRAP work on my RV.

They were selling it on consignment for a customer, said they would fix the water damage and any areas where water was coming in.

Picked it up a couple weeks ago and they basically just covered the water damage with new headliner material (soaking wet luan in walls/ceiling) and it still leaks (front windows, around AC, along wall where the main leak was, etc.) Mold all over the place under where they covered. The "repair" on the exterior of the roof is a HUGE bubble of material and whatever sealer they used still hasn't cured after 2 weeks (going up there leaves footprints and if you turn with your foot planted, you tear up the covering.) Basically tearing out EVERYTHING they did and re-doing it all.

Not saying all the work they do is like this, but this was my experience.

Bought it because while it was an older motorhome - it seemed pretty clean and they assured me they would take care of the water issue. If they weren't 400 miles from my home I might think about taking it back to them, but I know that I'll do a good job myself.

Our last mh was an '09 Bounder. We took it to General in Huntley to replace the step motor. They kept the appointment and we had our rig back the next day. We'd go back there again.

Also have taken it to Champion in Elgin, for oil changes, would go there again.

We like both places.

General RV in Huntley really let us down and I wouldn't recommend them. They fixed a loose mirror and the fix lasted an entire hour of driving. Not what I was looking for.
