Good RV repair shops in Portland, OR area?

Greetings. I'm wondering if any of you have recommendations on some good RV techs in the Portland area. Mobile is fine too. We've used one near our home to fix a couple of problems with mixed results. (fridge wasn't fixed properly and we were billed for propane but it was not filled).

Don't use the old Olingers which is now Camping World in either Hillsboro or Fairview.

If it were me I would take a little time and drive to JC. Maybe a little inconvenience but you would get the job done right the first time. Have never heard of a place in Portland that people were thrilled with.

Brazel's is the choice of many people in the Vancouver/Portland area. They're too far away (175 miles) for us, but their reputation is worth an 80-mile drive, IMO.

The have an attached RV park that you can stay in while they work on your rig, too.

i used ''at your service'' mobile repair once for my onan genny when i first bought my moho. the original owner used them extensively and they told me that the genny would be ok when i filled the moho's gas tank as they had previously serviced the genny. they actually came out to the original owners home to tell me this. the genny had less than 400 hours on it.
well, the genny wasn't ok. the belt drive system was defective. that is supposed to be warranted by onan for life. they still charged me $500+ to r&r the genny and repair it. it took them over a week. i won't use them again.

The very BEST RV Appliance repair service on the ENTIRE west coast is in SE Portland, it's called LaurelHurst Plumbing & Heating. In particular, they have a RV Tech named John who if I remember correctly always has a cigarette hanging out of his mouth, who really knows his RV Appliance stuff. Can't say enough good about them folks. I believe they are approximately located at the corner of 55th & SE Stark or Burnside. Do call ahead because room for large Motorhomes is rather limited.
