2 Things To Check When Looking For An RV Repair Shop

Posted on

An RV can give you a lot of freedom. You can get in it and drive anywhere the road takes you. You don't have to worry about hotel rooms or a schedule, you can just find a place to park your RV and enjoy the world. But when something goes wrong with your RV or the body gets damaged, you need to find a reputable RV repair shop that can get your RV back out on the road again. Checking into various shops and asking some questions is the best way for you to find the shop that can do the repairs you need on your RV. 

Check the Space 

One thing that you can do is ask to see the repair space. You are looking for repair bays that are large enough for RVs to go into. It will need to be long enough and wide enough for the mechanics to have the space to get around the RV while they are working on it. If your RV has slideouts, the bay should be big enough for them to be slid out to work on. While you are checking over the space, you may also want to check over the tools, just to see if they have everything they might need to work on your RV. Ask about outside storage space as well. If your RV is going to be parked outside, you want to know that it is going to be in a secure area. 

Ask About Experience

While a mechanic would probably have no problem dealing with your motor, your RV has a lot more than just a motor that might need to be worked on. You need to have someone who has a lot of experience working on RVs, whether it's the body of the RV or the plumbing system. Ask the service tech how many years they have been working on Rvs and what kinds of RVs they have worked on in the past. There are also certifications that the service tech might get to show that they are experienced in certain systems or with certain brands. You can always ask to see if the tech has one of those certificates. 

If you have an RV, you can travel just about any and everywhere. If something happens to it, you need to know that you have taken your RV to the best repair shop that you can find. If you have some idea about what you should look for, it will make it easier for you to choose.
