RV repair in Denver? Traveling!

Itasca Navion 2012. In Aspen. Cannot find anyone willing to help anywhere in Salida, Buena Vista, Glenwood Springs. Leaking propane regulator.

Driving toward Denver now. Does anyone know of friendly small RV repair place anywhere between Glenwood Springs and Denver?

Would appreciate any help!

If it were me, I would Google RV repair shops in those areas and call them.

That's 21st Century customer service work ethics for you. Tried any mobile RV repairers?

Is there a local Winnebago/Itasca dealer nearby? Maybe they can repair it or, if not, they can recommend someone since this should be considered an urgent problem.

This may be a shot in the dark but have you tried calling a propane dealer? Not just someone that fills BBQ tanks but a distributer. May be worth a call.

This is what I was thinking too, forget an RV shop and go to a propane company that works with these things.

Yes, we thought about it. Called three places. Finally found friendly guy at Amerigas in Grand Junction. So, changed direction and going west to Grand Junction. Hopefully, he can fix it. If not, we may need to find the regulator in some hardware store and try to replace it ourselves. Have been reading about it online.

Thank you, ArmandV, Elf111, 530ktm for your replies.

Just so frustrated. This is the third problem we have experienced during the last 8 days. We adjusted to living without AC and without our house battery being charged by chassis battery, but we must have functioning generator to charge our house batteries.

Sorry to hear of your problems during your trip. Just think of the stories you'll have to tell, besides what you fix now won't break again for years hopefully. Safe travels.

I thought about propane dealers, too. But have my doubts for insurance reasons (whether repairs are a part of their scope of business).

However, they can verify the problem given their expertise in the subject, and what parts are required, even if they sell the parts and you have to self-install.
