Opinions on Camping World service-Chichester, NH

Hello everyone,

I need to have my new Jeep Cherokee and motorhome setup for towing, base plate, lights and breaking system. I was thinking of having the work done at the Camping World located at Chichester, NH. I would like to know if anyone has any experience, good, bad or ugly having work done there.

Yesterday I went to the store to check out the service department and speak to the service manager. It all looked well organized, clean and professional. That includes the service manager :-) Just kidding, the service manager was very nice and knowledgeable. He stated they have many experienced RVIA certified techs that have been working in the rv industry for a long time, at CW or other places.

Your input would be appreciated and thanks in advance,

Stuart

I was completely satisfied with their work. There were no surprises and the work was timely completed. I has a safe t plus installed, rear track bar, coolant change, rear wheel seal replaced and ac wiring traced to find out why the front ac had no power. This in itself could have been very expensive but they found the broken wire behind a wall cabinet in 4 hours. They informed me at the onset that this repair could be very time consuming. In short I was 100% satisfied. I am taking my new toad to them soon for bases plates and set up.

What's the store in Tampa got to do with the one in New Hampshire! You can find that situation with any chain store.

Frankus,

Thank you for your input. This does make me feel more comfortable.

Johnyreno,

Thank you for your input however I do think each store probably has it's own personality and what applies for one may not apply for other. That is why I specified in my post the Chichester store and not Camping world in general.

Homeless,

Also, thank you for your opinion and phrase however while I do agree with this for personal stuff such as relationships when it comes to professional or more critical issues I completely disagree with this. If this was our positions on many things we would still be living in the dark ages or under a Nazi government. Humans have evolved to be social animals and it is within our primitive nature to learn from others what is good for us and more importantly what is bad for us so we can avoid what harms us. Keep the good news coming but also keep the bad news too.

Best,

Stuart

S-n-l,

I had a Camping World do the work on my F-150 that you're doing (albeit a different store). I found the prices (particularly if you use Good Sam discount) to be appealing. Mine went well, but I would encourage you to fully understand how the braking system they install works. I have adjustable brake pedal, and the installer didn't have the brake pedal fully extended when he set it up. Nearly had a brake shoe fire when DW adjusted the pedal in driving the toad first time after install. Just saying', while the CW made the mistake, make sure you understand the install so you don't have similar happen. I had a full Roadmaster system installed including the electronic bake assist system installed (a good system when installed right).

Dave,

Taking the adjustable brake pedal is fantastic advice. I do not have this on our new Cherokee but if we did have it I would not have thought of the issue. It is a good warning for anyone who does have it.

We are thinking of the SMI Air Force one brake system. If we had an adjustable brake pedal I would think the M&G break system may be a better choice.

Such good advice on this forum,

Stuart

After the work they did on my coach, I wouldn't take a go-cart there for service. JMO

Ours is the Roadmaster Invisibrake. I really like it because it is completely built in. Just couldn't remember the name in previous post. Take a look.

Chuck,

Thanks for the info. Did you take your coach to the Chichester Camping world or another service center. Where you took it would make a big difference to me.

Stuart
