Mike's Mobile RV Repair
On an extended three week round trip from Phoenix to Denver we encountered electrical problems in Durango, Colorado with our 1995 Roadtrek RV. The dashboard gauge fuse kept blowing. Mike came to our campsite and discovered several electrical issues, both in the house side and the chassis side of our class-B vehicle. A loose connection on the house battery was causing a short; the alternator was not charging properly. Mike replaced the alternator, and while doing a thorough electrical analysis of the charging system on the Chevy's engine, discovered a loose connection to a resistor that had been intermittently shorting and was the ultimate cause of the alternator going bad. No other repair facility (including Chevy dealers) for the past twenty-five years had ever bothered to look this closely at the electrical wiring into and out of the alternator circuit. Mike knows this stuff inside and out. He's fair, honest and upfront with his analysis; and he won't take advantage of you if you're broke down far from home.

We had a newish RV, and weren't all that familiar with all the workings. Anyway to make a long story short it had a reverse osmosis system in the kitchen sink. Something with the RO system was interfering with the water coming into our RV---it was diverting it to our grey tank. We called Mike, and within two hours he was at our little ranch here way out in the middle of nowhere. He had his wife with him and a little dog, and they were courteous and wonderful and most importantly, competent. In an hour or so he had an up-and-running knew everything about our system and gave us such a feeling of comfort knowing that there was someone out there who knew what he was doing and wasn't some fly by Shady con man. My husband and I can't say enough about his professionalism and his knowledge. How refreshing to find an honest hard-working man out there that really is interested in helping you. If you have any issues or problems whatsoever give Mike a call, you will be glad you did.

While staying in Durango we had a hot water tank completely fail in our Travel Trailer. Mike not only professionally fixed the problem he advised us the best price place to get the new tank. His installation, clean up, friendlyness and helpful advice was the best of the best! Very reasonable prices for top quality work and experience! We are so grateful to have had Mike do the repair!

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
