Most any automotive a/c shop should be able to handle that for you. Nothing unique about the dash air conditioning system in an RV.

Large RV dealers will have a chassis shop that can do most any repair to the chassis. Lazydays RV (Tampa) is one.

Some GM dealerships will also do light repair work on the 8.1L engine components.

Whether any of those will have prices you consider acceptable is another story.

It is a Chevy truck engine. Most any mechanic with space for the coach can do basic engine work. We had work done at a Cadillac dealer?!? and a roadside garage on the CA coast.
