The issue is that not all of us live in CAL and even chain shops like Discount Tire or 4WheelParts vary widely by location. I used to drive an hour just to go to the "good" Discount Tire in Indianapolis, even though there was one 5 minutes from my house.

good point but that is pretty much what my idea was. next time I am in Indiana I would know not to go to the one close to your house and I too would drive the distance.

nothing better than to build a notion wide list of ........on the positive side Good repair shops for the unexpected break-downs.

thanks for the reply

repair shops

Hello,

For those of you with a Ford chassis, you can visit;

https://www.fleet.ford.com/dealer_locators/default.asp

Enter the zip code, or city and state your in (very handy when travelling in an unfamiliar area). Next, in the "Specialty Services (Optional)" section, select "Business Preferred Network - Service Centers", and then "enter".

You will be given several Ford dealers to choose from that are suppose to be "Fleet" type dealers. These "Fleet" dealers typically have technicians and service writers/managers that are more accustomed to "specialty vehicles" like your SMB.

I hope this helps!

Thank you JK, that works for a start. I just had a real bad experience with a Ford dealership dealing with a super duty one ton; they recommended replacement of high dollar parts that were perfectly good.

I escalated it through all management to the owner. Didn’t get anywhere. It's now with Consumer Affaires establishing a suite for erroneous recommendations for needless repairs.

Thanks again John.

I would be interested in any recommendations for anyone in the South San Francisco Bay area. Particularly a shop that could work on the StarCool. On our last trip (when it was hot), we noticed that the StarCool wasn't cooling very much.
