Service shop recommendation?

Hello all....long time lurker, first time post, I bought a Vegas 25.2 in 2016 from a camping world and all I can say I will never take it there for service again.

That being said, I have a leak and some water infiltration below the drivers side window. I am willing to pay someone to tear apart and fix the right way this time. (CW had their shot and failed, warranty expired, repair was done 2 years ago so fighting with them or Thor would be a waste of time)

I am in NE Pennsylvania, 30 miles above Scranton.

Any recommendations of good honest shops within a 150 miles or so would be appreciated.

Thanks and thanks for all the info and insight you guys gave me on this site over the last couple of years, ---Brian

For water leaks where there is already damage, no one is as well equipped to repair the coach as the factory. I would definitely take back to .. THOR SERVICE CENTER. 510 Ward Street Wakarusa, IN 46573 .. (574) 266-1111

Agree with above advice. The rate is $100 per hour and they don't waste time trying to figure out the front vs the back of the coach. It would be my only option if it were me. Dealer service is pathetic for the most part. CW is a disaster.

Thanks guys. Looks like 600 mile trip. Can be done and from what I read looks like the. best option.

Thanks again.

Good decision and best option. I drove 800 miles in December for a small punch list I had been tallying for 6 months. Best service experience ever. They only took a day and a half for repairs plus they do a complete "tune up" and re-check all components. They even made a couple updates on stuff for free (cabinet/drawer latches to a newer style, replaced awning motor with a questionable batch that got out, etc). Their motto..."we didn't build your coach but we can fix it". They really care and the appointment system they go by is a accurate as a hospital surgery center. You will be taken in the day and hour they say and they appoint one technician to oversee everything...every repair is double check by other techs.
