Two good mechanics in Bend, OR
Sometime over the summer while the SMB was in storage our AC decided to discharge itself. My first stop when in town is German Master Tech, while they usually work on the expensive Euro jobs a quick look in the employee lots shows that these guys are avid overlanders. The initial diagnosis from another shop was the a/c compressor which is really buried on the E-350. THe big lift at GMT was busy for the week so with much trepidation and their recommendation I was off to the local ford dealer. To say the least I was pleasantly surprised at the excellent service I received at Robberson Ford. Robberson Ford determined that the problem was actually in the AC manifold. That part was replaced and now we are on the road for the fall with very cold AC. I would highly recommend either of these shops. Oh, and stay the hell away from Jimmy's Broadway Automotive in Tucson!
