    yep, Duncan is the man, but if its just advice, then give us an idea of the problem, and maybe my mate and I may be able to help, as we both have old RVs, and one being a winnie. We have both spent a lifetime working with vehicles, and recently spent a lot of time On our RVs.

    Rodley motors, Bradford. They have given me very good service on my coach built vans. However they specialise in American vehicles and have large RV's on site at regular intervals.
    Telephone 01274 688968.

    Good luck , Rex

    Thanks for contacts. We have a petrol Winnebago brave but have always felt it was not running right. It is very thirsty as you would expect but a couple of hgv mechanics have looked at it in the past but haven't really improved its performance in fact the last one seems to have made things worse so I suggested I make some enquiries on here to see if there was someone who is more of a specialist in this particular vehicle. Mabe someone who has had one in the past and knows what makes them tick so to speak. We have located someone fairly local for parts but they don't do repairs/servicing.

    Unfortunately I know nothing about American RV's. However I can recall others posting about them and mentioning a company named Motorhome Medics. It would appear that they are very highly thought of and are based near Cheltenham.

    Hope this may help you.
