Whether it’s time for routine RV maintenance or your rig needs extensive repairs, finding a reliable and trustworthy facility before you take your RV for service is important.

Follow these guidelines when getting your RV serviced and help avoid unpleasant surprises:

1. Look for a Good Sam certified dealer. One of the simplest ways to put your mind at ease to find a shop in this nationwide network of RV dealers, which have earned the “Good Sam Seal of Approval.”

2. Select a repair shop that specializes in RVs. General repair facilities are not equipped or knowledgeable enough to provide the maintenance your RV needs.

3. Do your research before you need a repair shop. Get recommendations, verify the facility’s license status, check membership with the Better Business Bureau.

4. Before repairs or maintenance is performed on your RV, get a written estimate.

5. When the work is completed get written details of work performed, collect the old parts and keep accurate records for future recommendations.
