"There’s a saying in the RV community, it’s not a question of if something will break on your RV, but when. No matter how much you spend, something will eventually break or stop working. It’s part of being an RV owner. However, when something goes wrong, it's important to find a reliable RV repair shop. You want to know your rig is in good hands."
An RV repair shop is similar to a car mechanic. However, they have technicians with expertise in all things RV-related. The intricate systems in an RV are unlike other vehicles. Many of these repair shops can handle almost any issue you might experience in an RV.
Frequenting an RV repair shop can be rather expensive. Labor rates typically range from $100 to $175 per hour. Some repairs can take several hours, and you’ll also consider the costs of any necessary parts. However, if you cannot repair yourself, you might not have any other choice.
RV repairs are common in the RV community. The standard repairs are tire blowouts, leaking roofs, and air conditioning units not cooling. Most RV repairs result from the owners not following the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule.
Lack of CommunicationPart of good customer service is communicating with customers. However, some businesses, including RV repair shops, aren’t the best at communication. If you have to follow up to get answers or estimates repeatedly, it should be a significant red flag of what you can expect regarding service.
One of the things we hate to see most is when repair shops use scare tactics, especially on vulnerable customers. If you go in for a minor repair and the shop delivers terrible news that they’ve discovered a significant issue that you must address immediately, you should proceed cautiously.
