Sounds like a RV repair tech out enjoying his boat.

Have you taken the dead motor into a rebuild shop to have them bench-test it?
Already diagnosed the problem. You can see where he repaired the ground. I'm having it properly repaired as a spare.. Live and learn. I've gotten pretty smart on this unit and I've been able to do most of the maintenance myself. This forum has also been very helpful in diagnosing and finding good sources for repairs.

"Red" was recommended by a reputable RV repair company that did not service the area where the RV I wished to buy was located. I simply wanted a pre-purchase inspection. He missed allot of stuff that cost me money. This was my first RV purchase and I wanted a professional to determine any potential problems. He was not professional and I would never recommend him either.

Not recommended will not even return calls or fix something that was under his so called warranty after spending $2k+ Noticed he has 3 different company names. Lesson learned.
I used "RV Anywhere Mobile RV Service in Independence, Missouri" and they did a good job except there are a few wrinkles in the new rubber roof they put on along the side, but I can live with them.

They did good work for the most part for everything they did on my two RV's.

I am glad you posted here, as I live about 15 or 16 miles from Thomaston and am old enough that I no longer can do all my RV work. So a BIG thank you to you

If he sold you a used product as new.. You may well have a case in court (not sure if it will be magistrates or high court though).. (Also not sure how good a case,, You need professional advice on that issue).

True story: Man doing some landscaping for my dad did not finish the job.. Many voice mails, none returend, last was from the family lawyer (my Sister) "You will get out there and finish the job or I'll know why".

She now knows why: police broke his door in and found him dead of natural causes, they returned the call.
Home is where I park it!

It is a shame that many RV'ers need to count on those that are mechanicly inclined to make repairs. It is a different shame of those that take advantage of them.

Court may not do anything but consumer affairs maybe or police.

If used sold as new then that is a crime.

Most states require license and insurance to operate a buisiness.

If that business involves touching customer owned property then it usually requires additional permit or license.

So call your local police and insist on filing a report as $700.00 is not chump change.

Next check with city hall for license and work your way up.

You may not get your money back but he may be stopped.

He may be forced to refund your bill.

Costs you nothing but your time and things like this are why the agencies are there.
