Shipshewana, IN Chassis work

Heading over to the Flee market end of Aug. thought that maybe while in that area I'd take the coach over to a place and get the suspension/brakes looked at. Any recommendation's?

Get a few quotes from HDT repair shops for comarison. Keep in mind your chassis mfgr did not special order suspension parts, they are usually surplus parts the chassis mfgr. bought up several years prior to use.
For comparison, my local HDT repair shop charges $135/hr. The local RV repair shop charges $150/hr. labor. RV technicians might work on one MH chassis a month, the HDT repair shop does so every day.
Whichever you decide upon, request they keep old parts for your inspection, just to keep them on their toes.

What is wrong, what coach etc??
I generally do not let RV shops touch the coach as a couple caused us great pains and expense.

Brakes, Cheap and go to any truck shop as they are standard on highway air brakes. Nothing that XXX truck repair can not whip out.
Suspension is more of an issue. Depends what you are worried about but I think there is a group here that can help. My general rule of thumb is to ask here first and then get it looked at so I know a bit of what Ia talking about. Counry coach is great chassis but many RV shops do not understand HWH, Air bags and all that.

Nothing is wrong with the coach. I just thought that being a few miles from the RV Building Capital of the world. might make sense to see what's available.
I can't find any record of Brakes, wheel Brgs, or Airbags being serviced.
