Just for the record, they aren't my sites. I found them this past year on one of the forums and researched them.

I use them in conjunction with workhorse service facilities, and Allison facilities for maintenance.

A Harrisburg facility wanted $140 for a routine oil change. A Gettysburg facility charged $73 for the same oil change. An Allison facility wanted $130 for the 5k Allison service, A Waco autorized Allison Facility charged $60 for the same 5k service.

I am not a mizer, but I do like the best value for my $.

I posted both experiences on the rv service review site. Hope it saves others as well.

It is my hope others will post their experiences, as it may help me

I am building my own network of trusted facilities as we travel. Another example is I found a excellent facility in of all places Pipe Creek, TX, compared with others within a reasonable driving distance. Posted experience there.

I now have personal trusted factilites in Gettysburg, Waco, Pipe Creek (2). And will cringe until I add others in locations we travel.

RV Service Reviews help me, hope it does the same for you.

I receive no (double negative)financial or other gain, except the knowlege and experience from others in using these sites.

Good Luck,

I had a costly experience last year in Panama City, the review can be read on this site as well. I will do everything I can to stack the odds in my favor when seeking service facilities. So, please, please, and please, post your experiences good and bad, I believe it can help us one and all, and to one and all a good night!

Thanks for the response. I am having a ball, and plan to until the cows come home. I don't want anyone to know I'm happy in life, then they'll want to be too. Then where would we be.

I use to say, my Momma raised a Marine, not a fool. However, as I matured (tongue in cheek) I did qualify that more, by saying, sometimes I have been one in the same.

Ah, but to learn from ones mistakes, so as not to repeat them. IMHO, that separates the Marine from the Fool.

Now that said, don't none of you old breed, new breed Marines take offense. I am not calling Marines Fools, I am referring to the possessive noun of that remark. However, in all Honesty, I have known both, and they weren't always the one looking in the mirror.

What does that have to do with the topic:

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, I want to learn and access any and all resources that protects the family assets in the pursuit of life, liberty and you get the idea; which includes all the above links and references, as well as other sites.

You may not know it, yes you do, You folks are great folks that have a wealth of info and are willing to share it, and I think folks want the same things we all do.

I believe we are all in this together, we may not all agree, but isn't that great! BUT, if it helps you, it most likely helps me. What's wrong with that.

Folks do things to help themself, and if it helps me and visey versey.

I am not involved in anything to make a quick $$$$$, but I don't fault others that are. I don't whine, ok, maybe a little, but not publicly, I don't blame others for my shortcomings, and I try to deal honestly with everyone I meet.

I can't help it if everyone else is wrong all the time. LOLLLLLL.

One last thought. I also know from Personal Experience, Ain't none of us Gettn' outta' this world alive. I can Choose anal retentiveness or I can:

If that doesn't work, well then:

For anyone that may be offended, etc. etc.

That would be great to have one central location for information of this type.

Ease of retrieval, input, confirmation as much as possible.

We were also GS club members a few years ago ,and I to am here to say it would be cheaper for them to give away memberships and not send out all of those mailings We still get something from them every couple of months
