Any recs for sprinter refurb/repair? (Currently in Tahoe)

Been a happy owner of a 2005 Sprinter Sportsmobile for the past 6 years and I wanted to do a refresh on the RV-side of things before I do a monthlong roadtrip to Denali!

My initial thought was to hit up SMB West but for the life of me can't get a single callback after calling them a couple times a month. So I figured I'd ask the SMB forum to see if fellow owners have any recs.

I'm in Stateline, NV (Tahoe region) and don't mind driving a few hundred miles on a mini-adventure to get things cleaned up. Specifically I wanted to stresstest the electrical, fix some issues with shower knobs, mabye swap the fan since a buncha hinges are broken, and maybe swap out the incinerlet (which I never use) for a console toilet. Nothing super fancy, but I figured I'd rather pay for something of quality than do patches and DIY fixes myself.

Would love to hear what other people have as solutions!

SMB West is becoming Field Van.

SMB has a new SW location in AZ.

SMB West was setting up a Reno location prior to the transition to Field Vans. Maybe Field Vans continued that effort. That'd be good and close to you.
