DP Service in Bradenton/Sarasota, FL

We've just bought our 1st motorhome.
It's a 2003 National Tradewinds 375LE with a 330hp Caterpillar engine on a Spartan chasis.
I'm looking for recommendations of service shops in the area.
So far, we don't need anything, (I don't think) but would like to identify possible options.

Thanks

You can go on a website called RV Service Reviews. From there just pick Florida and you will then see places others have used in those locations along with how the service they received was.

Campbell RV in Sarasota. I had them do a recall service on my fridge. Have not had them do any engine work.
If the engines needs some help I use Sunstate Trucks in Bradenton, just east of airport on 15th St.
There is a place - "Mobile Service/ RV Parts Mall" - just off 15th st in Bradenton. They do all kinds of stuff except engine. They have a guy on their property "Lucky's Mechanic Shop" that fixed my dash air.
The closest Authorized Spartan repair place is "Preventative Maintenance" in Clearwater. I wanted someone to replace my fuel tank sending unit and every one else turned their nose up even though they were a Spartan repair place. This guy didn't. I have an appt mid June.

Good information.
I would like someone to look at the steering in my coach. It seems a little squirrely..
I'll check with Campbells and see if that is something that they do.
Thanks,
Wm

That sounds like a Spartan problem - instead of wasting money, I would check with Preventive Maintenance (I misspelled it before) Truck Fleet Maintenance | Clearwater, FL
