Good shop in Sacramento needed

Well, while I was in Texas I had a less than desireable experience with a shop that promised to swap my hoses and belt. Their one day promise turned into 2 weeks. I am full time and couldn't wait 2 weeks and had them put it back together so I could pick it up the next day. The mechanic was nice enough to change the belt and lower hose while it was partially apart.


So now I'm on my way to Sacramento CA and would like to find a decent shop that can finish the job, upper and bypass.



If any of you guys have a lead on a decent shop it would help greatly.


Thanks


Jim58

Bud Eberwein Automotive

Bud Eberwein is located here in Fresno but it would be worth the drive.

It are a Workhorse shop.

They have done all the work on my Workhorse chassis for the past 15 years.

Very honest and quick.

Thanks Arch. I may found someone in Sac. I have an appointment on the 31st. I will post back with their name and outcome for other members reference, should someone need a shop around here.


I finally got motivated and removed the entire doghouse. It took me half a day but gives much much much more working room than the tiny little opening Fleetwood put in the engine cover.

Jim, let me know who you found and how they did. Always looking for a good place to take my W22. I was very happy with Sacramento Truck, but they have stopped working on gas rigs.

I was in and out in 2.5 hours. I dealt mostly with Robert, the VP. The owners seem to be hands on and will listen to your needs. I will be back next trip to have them go over my brakes. I have absolutely no problem recommending these guys to handle the mechanical/running gear/service type repairs. Basically a truck shop but they're RV people too so they know what we're up against getting our rigs fixed.
