The economy has hit hard. I have refused to take my Rv to the local shops since theywhere not nice. They saw me coming and could see I wasnew at RVing. They would add charges, and make up repairs that where not necessary.I have begun to learn rv repairs with the help of this forum. I have been doing my own repairs but there are things that need to be left alone tothe pros. I found a mechanic that has been working for an Rv dealer for a little over 20 years. His hours have been cut to part time.I have been taking my Rv to him rather then the RV shop. This may bewrong but he needs the money. I may be contribuiting to the demise of Rv shops who are hurting as well.I guess I am confessing.Iwant to spend money to stimulate the economy at this shops, but I do not want to be taken. Not sure whyI am writing this but this is how I feel today.
