Mobile Techs

Occasionally in a forum I hear the term "mobile tech". If you are on the road how do you locate a mobile tech? Any hints on how to qualify them?

The best place, IMO, is to ask at a campground office. They will generally have an idea who their customers have used and like. They may also have some kind of discount arrangement with one. If you are not at a campground, you could still call them and ask for a recommendation.

There is, of course, the all knowing Google search. I have searched "mobile rv tech" plus zip code and found some. Good luck.

Ask the office; ask a neighbor; internet search; and/or RV Service Review (both to locate and "qualify") ...I normally do all of the above

I think if engine or chassis related I'd ask at a truck stop or truck shop.

I have always done well by asking the GC office or posting the question here in the forum.

Mobile Tech

Thans for the great information! At least I now know how you look for a tech when you're on the road.

Error in prior post

Correction of spelling to my prior post

That was suppose to be thanks not thans.
Gosh I feel lost without spell check. I refuse to write in Word using spell check and then use copy and paste to place it on the Reply to Thread screen. Too many steps on the Ipad. And this apology is from someone who just retired after spending the last 15 years running a high school computer lab.
If someone wants to tell me to take my post back, correct it for grammar and spelling for partial credit, I will understand.
My wife told me to not get upset with mysef that I am not perfect. But I know she must be thinking of someone else! I wonder who that could be?

The campground office is a good place to start or maybe with the campground hosts. I recently needed one and was having no luck finding one. I called Good Sam Emergency Roadside service and the lady there gave me the names and numbers of 3 or 4 in my area. I had already called my extended service provider but since my problem did not make me immobile, they were no help.

Never thought of that approach, what a good idea calling your roadside service provider. I'll tuck that tip away for future use. Thanks for sharing
