Better call first I don't remember them being a "Ford" dealer. 214-624-9100
Yes a Ford dealer that service and sell Ford Trucks. I add opportunistic dealer that are use to Commercial accounts to excessively overcharge.
I used them on play project just to get a relationship with them for future if ever needed. I was wanting to self install my Safe T Plus but had trouble get the U bolt off to install Safe T Plus mounting bracket. So took it by there and the said they would mount the bracket (Not the stabilizer bar for 1 hr labor which was around $170 ) I forgot the exact amount. So I wait 2 hours for them to get to which was not all bad being inside the RV. Then the Tech comes out and he could NOT get it off either
They tried everything but just couldn't. Then they said they were going to use something to get it off but it may break the U bolt. So they wanted to order a backup U bolt just in case. The U bolt was NOT a Ford supplied part so they wanted me to sign to order custom part for $550 to have one made
It didn't sound right do I call Safe T Plus Stabilizer in Atlanta. They talked to Rush on the phone after about 15 min I got the phone back and Safe T Plus asked me to take it to a Spring Shop they recommended. So I told Rush to let me hold off and think some more on this and I would bring it back if I wanted them to order part. They charged me 1hr labor. I paid the $170 and never looked back. I will NEVER go there again unless forced by a Military escort with tanks.
I took it to the spring shop who mounted the bracket in 30 minutes and charged me only $70.
My Winnebago dealer's rate is actually cheaper than Rush and the Ford Dealers, so depending on what it is, I would always go to them first. They have done all of Winnebago warranty work with a smile and we still have a item to replace ( bedroom mirror) left 6 months after the warranty is over.
Incidentally, Safe T Plus offered I drive the RV to Atlanta and they would install for free
In hindsight, had I known, since I bought the RV in Florida and drove through Atlanta on my return trip to Dallas, I could have bought Safe T Plus direct from them and they could have install on my way back to Dallas.
