May 11, 2017: Finding a good RV repair shop is not easy. But when you find one, you create a good relationship with them.
Rick’s RV Center was referred to us by Orlandi Trailers, the dealer we bought our toy hauler from. Bart Waymire, who manages the service center at Rick’s RV Center, used to manage Orlandi Trailers.
The key to a good repair shop is a good repair shop manager.
Turns out, Bart has been a valuable resource for us. We took our pickup truck to him, and told him what kind of toy hauler we were getting, and he picked out the right weight distribution hitch for us. They even installed it for us. Since then, he welcomed our e-mails for questions, since this was our first time ever towing a trailer.
When we had a problem with the furnace in our toy hauler, I figured on taking it to Rick’s RV Center. And again, it was a good idea. The guys at Rick’s had the problem diagnosed right away and fixed within hours.
Bart even assessed the weight distribution hitch that I had hooked up to the trailer and showed me a trick to squeezing out another inch of lift on the rear suspension of the truck.
Newbies need a reliable resource to go to. So, if you’re in the San Diego area, take a trip to Rick’s RV Center and get to know the guys. Meet Bart Waymire, he’ll really take good care of you.
