Central Florida repair recommendations

We are in Central florida between Tampa and Ocala. I need our diesel generator dropped out of our 2003 Winnebago Journey and new belt hoses etc installed. Also may need a new basement air unit installed, (still doing diagnostic) Can anyone recommend a good repair/dealer in this area? We have been through the Camp world wringer before. thanks,B

There is a Cummins repair facility in Tampa.

Lazy Daze is there as will but I suspect the wait time is very long.

Cummins in Tampa or Ocala for your generator service. I prefer Ocala.

For the air, maybe Creative Coach Collision Repair and Design Center in Lakeland, FL is an interior design company for motorhomes.

Assuming it's an Onan generator, go to an Onan shop. Onan is a Cummins brand, so most Cummins shops are also Onan, or have an Onan dealer associated with them. The Cummins dealer shops in Tampa & Ocala both service Onans.

You don't need or want an RV dealer for generator work.

I can't recommend the Cummins shop in Tampa. Took my coach there for a genset issue... they were clueless, but still charged me an arm and leg.
Give Drews RV in Ruskin a call.... I don't know of he does genset work, but if he doesn't , he'll direct you to someone that can do it.

I’ve used a place called Preventive Maintenance in Clearwater. I believe they have a diesel generator mechanic on site. Can’t say they are the cheapest but they do excellent work.

This place is in North Central Florida not too far from I 75 but the reviews are wonderful for generator service. Very RV friendly. I have never used them, just heard a lot about them:North Florida Welding Supply, 1900 US-41, Lake City, FL 32055

I have had a good experience with Alliance Coach in Wildwood... just off I 75 near the Villages. They were recommended to me and have good reviews.
They have an on-site CG for customers and we came in the day before to be ready for service the next AM.

We broke down in our RV a week ago and were towed by a tow truck from Truck Shop in Okahumka, Florida (just southwest of Leesburg. We had them tow us to their facility in okahumka, and I was REALLY impressed with them. They were very familiar with working on motorhomes, they were friendly, helpful, and competent. Although our problem was not with our generator I am sure they would have no problem taking care of your generator issues. I was so impressed I have decided to use them for our preventative maintenance instead of Tampa Freightliner were we have been going.
