RV service centers

Ok I have a question concerning RV service along the Gulf Coast region, We live in Mississippi and looking for a good place to have our RV serviced. We have a campers World in Robertsdale AL as well as a Johnny's RV Discount Center in Theodore AL. Don't think I would mind driving a reasonable distance (100 mile?) to get reliable service.
Any recommendations from any of your Veteran RV'ers down along this area?

I have used All Star in Robertsdale Al a number of times very good service prices below others I highly recommend them.

So here is my Service Center update: We ended us using Johnny's RV Discount Center in Theodore AL. Ended up with a total bill just north of $800.00. Not real confident that everything was serviced versus just being looked at. There was no explanation of what was done and what might be recommended ect...
The service dept had a management meltdown and the shop manager and his assistant had bee fired, or "let go" and while the remaining staff was pleasant, I just did not have that warm fuzzy feeling about the quality of work.
So with my disquieted self I was ready to hook up to my Tow Master dolly pay my bill and move on.
When the attendant waved me down to hook up to the Tow Master dolly which we had purchased about 2 weeks earlier and had modified to our specs, i notice it was not mine.... they had given my dolly and another customer!!!! Now here I set ready to go on a trip and I have no dolly, at least not my dolly!
They didn't seem to be very concerned about this issue, at least not the way I was concerned... Long story short they tracked the person down to a hotel they were staying in and retrieved my dolly...
2 things here;
1. no one paid any attention to what they were hooking up.
2. no one paid any attention to what they were hooking up to, staff or the customer.

oh boy....
anyway the staff was pleasant!!!

FYI: me and my Dad will be dusting our tools off and doing our own work....

What sort of "service"? You don't need an RV dealer for chassis stuff, e.g. oil changes, and usually the prices are better and the service competent.

RV dealers love to sell "inspections" or service "packages". They bundle a bunch of things and promise to do good, without having any measurable results. Maybe a checklist with some tick marks supposedly showing things were done. High profit for the shop and easy for the tech to breeze through. Maybe doing a thorough job, or maybe not.

Personally, I never buy such things. However, I've usually isolated any problem before hand and ask for specific repairs or tests, plus an estimate of costs.
