Anybody recommend a repair shop in Reno, NV

I'm looking to drop an Atwood heater into my Boler. It's getting cold around here. Does anybody recommend a shop in the Reno area? Thanks.

I had to have some refrigerator work done when I was in that area. I ended up at Camping World in Henderson. There's probably better places in the area.

Call your local Good Sam member for a recommendation.
Good Sam RV Club

Not a member? I think it is worth it and you get a Camping World membership with it.

The corporation that owns Camping World bought Good Sam awhile back. They publish a magazine and have insurance and other items. They give a discount for items you purchase at Camping World however I purchase from RV Parts, RV Accessories RV Supplies Priced Low and off Ebay and get better deals. One of the good things about Good Sam is they have an Action Line where you write describing how you got ripped off and they write a letter and publish the findings in their magazine. They tell you who did the ripping and what the outcome is. It's surprising how many prominent companies wind up on that Action Line.

There are thousands of Good Sam members around the country and that is who a person should call to get help on selecting a maintenance provider. You are never alone with Good Sam.

Henderson is 450 miles from Reno. I know the guy who owns the US rights to Trillium moved from Sacramento to Carson City a few years back to restart production. Don't know if he is up and running but he would certainly know fiberglass campers. I misplaced his name and number sorry but someone on here ought to know.

Whoops, now it looks like they are located in Arizona. I started talking with him 4 or 5 years ago when he was in Sacramento and he was moving to Carson City to get away from all the Cali EPA stuff for fiberglass production. He opened in Carson City now however looking at the brochure it looks like they went to:
15051 North Hwy 79; Florence, Arizona 85132
TrilliumRV.com 775: 443-8946
