Replace 3 TVs with digital sets, replace water pump, replace leaking front hubs, chassis inspection, We have had repairs done at 3 other shops and the customer service and quality of work here was the best we've experienced. Jack was our contact and worked with us as though we were his only customer. Tim, the owner and his employees were friendly and helpful while focused on getting the work done right and on time. Inside the coach, Jim (the technician) left no trash after installing the TVs. He replaced the original trim with no damage. He was cooperative and answered our questions. His work replacing the hubs was done neatly with no oil or fluid left on or under the coach. Our water pump was inoperative, he diagnosed the problem then replaced the water pump. We met Jack & Tim at the FMCA Rally in Winston-Salem, NC, October 2010. They were helpful then and we subsequently scheduled our work to be done in April 2011. We were impressed with their knowledge, courteous and friendly manner from the start. We shopped for the best value for the price and found it at Master Tech. We were so pleased that we will make the trip back here, from NC, for our planned updates or any other need that arises. If you need any motorhome work, we recommend calling Jack at Master Tech.

Purchased and had installed power MCD shades in the cockpit area of coach. Had coach measured by Jack Haris and Jim. Returned for installation on trip home. Shades were a perfect fit. Installation was extremely neat and looks excellent. New valances were made and installed and wood work was a perfect match color wise with existing cabinetry. All work was completed in a day and a half including manufacturing/finishing/installing the valences. Coach was sparking clean when work was completed. This is a first class shop that gets things right the first time.

Renovation and updating our '02 Winnebago Journey. The ceramic tile on part of the living room/kitchen room, hall, and bathroom was removed and replaced with Tarkett vinyl type tile, layed on point. MCD day/night shades were installed throughout the coach, including the windshield powered shades. Solid cherry valences, designed by Master Tech, replaced the original fabric covered valences. This addition made the coach a real specimen of beauty at it's best!! The Dometic 4-door 10.1 cubic ft. refrigerator was replaced with a new domestic Samsung 20.0 cubic foot refrigerator, doubling our capacity. This refrigerator is 100% electric with huge storage in the top double doors and lower drawer freezer with stainless steel fronts. They installed the new captains chairs purchased from Winnebago, with the Journey emblem embroidered across the back. They also installed a new J-lounge purchased from Flexsteel. These additions were covered with the new ultra leather. With every challenge the Master Tech techs faced, they worked diligently, making sure we would be happy and proud of our new upgraded coach. These men really care about what they do and their work shows off their care. Kevin B., Joe, and the other helper/workers took individual care to be sure the work was done according to the high standards of Master Tech. Water damage was discovered in the bedroom, which was a result of the outer seals on the bedroom slide had disintegrated. The new (expensive) seals were replaced. The moldy, rotten wood had to be replaced and other repairs were necessary. The repairs were made and NOT just covered over with new carpet. These men know how to take care of damages hidden under carpet. There was delamination on part of the exterior as a result of the water leakage. Their paint shop matched the repaired area perfectly. New carpet in the bedroom was also installed in the storage pits and closet, making the bedroom appear brand new. That was the goal when the coach was left in the hands of these skilled craftsmen. New step covers were also installed. The initial order stated we wanted the entrance to be like a brand new coach when we walk in, and it does. Tim may be the chief boss but he also knows the correct steps to install a new windshield. If you ever want your motorhome improved, put it in the hands of the caring and skilled craftsmen at Master Tech. Excellent. We couldn't have had anyone do a better job than what these men did for us. We thank them for all the time they devoted to our coach.

Replace 2 basement doors. The work was OK, the time doing it was not. Should it take 3 weeks to replace two doors? Number one, they sent the pictures and estimate to me rather than the insurance company. Didn't know it until I told them. They did not order the parts needed until a week later. Did not order all the parts needed to repair the inside of the doors. I asked for an estimate to have the top cap painted. Never got a written estimate. When they sent to RV to be painted (2 weeks later) they had the cap painted without my authorization. They then had the gall to take me to the paint shop and while in their truck tell me how much I had to pay for the work and paint. I ended up with additional cost that was unexpected. Would I go back NEVER.

Carpeting in bedroom, reattach mud flap, re-fix step tile They do good work but you have to pay for work to be re-fixed after installation. We had work done a year ago and had problems shortly after we left. Also watch as to what you are charged for hours worked. To reattach a mud flap 5 hrs. After a disagreement with the hours they redid the hours to 3 hrs. We felt it should of been 1 hour but would pay for 1 1/2. That was a no go with them. Also carpeting put in the last time has problem but we would not pay again to have it fixed. It should of been warranted as the tile but it is you pay for labor to have it fixed.

Provide and install Jack TV Antenna, provide and install outside window awning, install customer provided window shades to replace day/night shades and design, build and install custom cabinet and kitchen table. We have had Master Tech do renovation work for us 4 or 5 times previously, so obviously we like them or we would not keep going back. I will admit, it always takes longer than they anticipate but you will not find a more dedicated team of employees. They work extremely hard to provide a quality professional job and they do succeed. They did a good job and we are extremely pleased with the outcome. We are especially pleased with the cabinet and table design, the finish they provided on it was nothing short of what any professional cabinet maker would do. The guys left the coach clean and were careful not to leave marks or messes around. We must also comment on the fact that we had a 18 year old cat that had to be left in the coach and they were careful not to let her out or cause her any distress. We love working with these guys and have recommended them to members of our FMCA clubs. We are not saying they never make a mistake, but they have never failed to make any mistake right. No doubt we will go back again!

1. Replaced sewer bay floor, which involved removing existing fresh water holding tank and its water connections, and a tool compartment on passenger side of sewer bay. 2. Replaced entry door steps. This included removing and rebuilding rotted entry stairwell; rebuilding entry step supports and replacing existing entry steps; and realigning entry door that had been installed improperly by the manufacturer. Excellent. 1. The workmanship and quality of materials used to rebuild the entry steps was first class. The entry steps, which were originally attached (by the manufacturer) primarily using wood as the substructure, were reinforced with metal supports and plating. 2. The entry door had apparently not been installed properly by the manufacturer. It was slightly askew. It never fit snug so as a result there was excessive wind noise while driving, and allowed water to leak into the entry step well that in part caused problem #1.

We ordered a new sofa and chair at the FMCA Rally in Essex Junction, VT in July, and were told it would be ready in 3 weeks. Also planned was for a new floor to be installed. We planned to be in Elkhart on 8/22 and were scheduled to begin on the 23rd. Master Tech was ready on time and work began as scheduled and was completed in the planned time. I cannot say enough about the event, it was a delight to work with Jack, Tim, Ryan and Joe. They were so professional, and so anxious to please us. Every bit of the work was done in the most professional way, and I cannot praise the entire staff for the way in which they kept our personal needs and comfort in mind throughout the entire process. It was truly a great experience and I would recommend them to anyone.

We met Jack at the FMCA rally in Madison, WI - We wanted some MCD shades, but we needed them soon, for we would be in the Elkhart area on a certain date, Jack said he could accommodate us and work with our time frame. When they started to install the shades they ran into a problem - not quite enough room - so they had to take down the wooded valances and modify them. They did an excellent job - if I did not know that they had to modify the valances, I would never known that happened - but the real test was my wife - would she be happy with the result?? Well she loved the shades and needless to say she felt the same way - they did a great job - and we were out of there in a day and a half - happy campers!!

Renovated and updated motorhome. Addition of sliders/bump out on back portion of motorhome with bunk beds and DVD players. Painted exterior of motorhome. Installed Blue Ox car trailer/golf cart carrier with reinforced hitch. Very professional job. Excellent craftsmanship and workmanship. Jack Harris, Tim, Tom and Rosie were very helpful and kept us updated with pictures of the progress as it happened. Was able to problem solve instillation of the blue Ox hitch even when the distributor didn't know how. Also provided solutions to problems that manufacturer didn't solve with steering issue. We would definitely use them again and would recommend them for any job.

Being a Vice President of FMCA's International Area (INTO) we were on our way from our home in Southern California to Goshen, IN for the 11th Annual INTO Rally. While crossing the Mississippi River in St. Louis our MCD 2 roll full windshield cockpit shade suddenly crashed down onto our dash startling both my wife and me. Thankfully there was no loss of control of our coach, no injury and no property damage. We found the cause to be the failure of the the right side shade hanger bracket, it had broken at the 90 degree bend. As the shade suddenly dropped from the right the weight apparently pulled the left side down of course pulling the wires from the motors and the motors from the left side mounting bracket. At the INTO Rally in Goshen I happened to meet Jack Harris of Master Tech RV, a Rally vendor. I told him of the incident. He came to my coach took photos of the the shade and bracket damage. He told me to contact Joy at MCD Innovations, which I did and she was very understanding. Jack followed up by contacting MCD and sending the photos he took to them for their evaluation. He told me he would be able to make the shade system serviceable again and that MCD had informed him they would stand behind their product and make it right with us and Master Tech RV. MCD shipped the parts necessary to Master Tech RV and a couple of very good service techs Joe and Jim made the repairs and reinstalled our shade system. A total of 3 days time start to finish. Master Tech RV and MCD Inovations worked together to correct a consumers problem and demonstrated business/customer relations as they should be. Thanks Jack and Joy. Service Techs Joe and Jim demonstrated knowledge,efficiency and performed quality work. I could not be more pleased. Without any reservation I recommend Master Tech RV services.

After one company in Kansas repaired our Aqua Hot system twice, it still didn't work. It completely quit the day we left Kansas. Master Tech got me in the day after I called and repaired the unit as well as took care of a couple of other small items that were bugging me. These guys are the real deal, hands down. They took the time to show me E X A C T L Y what had happened to the system and exactly what was done to repair it. They were on-time with the repair. This is a class operation run by true professionals. I will be taking our coach there again for the installation of a GPS/XM CD radio and the installation of an outdoor entertainment center. It's nice to have found a true "home shop'. When we're at home, I doubt I will let anyone else touch our coach.

Leak in the bathroom, TV's did not work right, main radio we could not get Sirius on, GPS went out, had problems with our Dish Network. We rate Mastertech RV as only place we will every take our RV to get work on. They is an outstanding place to get your RV troubles corrected. We were greeted at the door by a very friendly and knowledgeable person Jack Harris who put us in direct contact with Ryan Lantz, they were both very professional in finding out what problems we were having and helping us get them resolved. They have developed the staff and resources to literally ?fix anything in a RV" Ryan, our tech, has an endless store of knowledge which he was more than happy to share with us. He applied that to our situation resulting in a very neat finished product. When we pulled out of Master Tech both my wife and I knew how to run and work every piece of equipment in our RV. If you ever have RV problems we certainly recommend Master Tech RV.

We recently had MCD shades installed at the factory in McKinney TX. A few weeks later, we felt like the front windshield shades needed some adjusting. We phoned Joy, at MCD Innovations, and she referred us to Master Tech RV Services. Fortunately, Jack Harris, was able to work us into their schedule as we traveled back to the west coast. Our technition, Jim, discovered that one of the mounting clips was defective and was able to install a new mounting clip and reprogram the shades to their proper set-points. We were very pleased with their professional manner, expertise, and hospitality. Thank you Jack Harris and Jim! Excellent! We would highly recommend them to anyone needing RV service and repairs.

I?ve used Master Tech RV on five different occasions. The repairs have included front hub seal replacements, front door lock repair, toilet mechanism replacement, Norcold refrigerator recall update, ice-maker replacement, and new tire installation. They also fixed a battery compartment bay door that had never worked right. It?s now perfect. But the most challenging repair was to fix a water leak in the bay under the driver?s side window. I?d suffered with leaks there since the coach was new ? five and a half years ago. Although two other companies tried to fix it, it was Master Tech RV who nailed it. As it turned out, the leak was coming down through the power window, which is the normal condition, but the factory had drilled the drain hole on the wrong side of the collection tray, such that water was entering the bay instead of draining to the outside. Master Tech removed the pilot seat and side panel, completely cleaned the tray of mildew, etc., plugged and sealed the original hole, drilled a new hole, and re-routed a new drain tube to the outside. Result? I?ve been in two downpours, and the bay has remained dry as a bone. As a full-timer RVer, Elkhart, Indiana, does not fall along my normal travel routes, but I gladly make the trip there because I know the high quality of service they perform. It?s not easy to find a company that has such high standards and levels of competence. The range of services they perform is astonishing ? normal RV repairs, chassis repairs, collision damage repairs, exterior and interior renovations to whatever level the customer requires, etc. This level of service is no accident. It is the result of three things. 1.) It begins with Jack Harris ? the customer face of the company. Jack is the kind of employee that every company is desperate to find. He listens to his customers and gets the results that they expect. His hard work, competence, and follow-through instill deserved confidence in his customers. Jack is one of the main reasons I continue to return to Master Tech for my service needs. The more complex the problem, the more likely I am to choose Master Tech. 2.) The second reason is the superb quality of technicians that work there. Jim is a prime example. I observed his approach to finding my water leak. It was much more methodical and well thought-out than my own attempts. Not only did he find the leak, his solution was top-notch. 3.) The last reason is the guiding light of Master Tech RV ? Tim, who is the owner of the company. Tim is involved in every aspect of the business. Get this ? when we arrived on Sunday afternoon, I found Tim sweeping the office floors. When he finished with that, he spent the next several hours in a Bobcat spreading gravel around the parking lot. Tim also works as a master technician on the shop floor. It?s Tim who sets the standards for this company. In short, Master Tech RV is a rare find.

We began the GLASS Rally with Agua-Hot problems. Not looking forward to 5 days of cold showers, I attended a seminar conducted by Tim and Jack of MasterTech RV. Unlike other seminars this was a teaching seminar not a selling seminar, and I immediately gained respect for Tim and Jack. After the seminar, Tim agreed make a service call and review my issues. What we thought could be as simple as a new nozzle ended up with a major repair issue. Seems a squirrel chewed through numerous 120 volt, 12 volt, and control wires, in addition to our diesel supply and return lines. The result was an extremely dangerous situation with leaking diesel and exposed wire all above the enclosed ceiling in the bays. After making our coach safe for travel we brought it to Elkhart for MasterTech RV to finish the repairs. Tim personally did a complete inspection and estimate because of the complexity of the damages. The results were extremely bad, with diesel fuel damage everywhere in addition to extensive wiring, and control module damage. After notifying the insurance company, we awaited approval of the estimate so work could begin. We immediately had a conflict with the insurance company not honoring the estimate and offering significantly less. At times I thought I was the odd man out with insurance looking out for their wallet, and MasterTech holding to their estimate. I could have not been more wrong. MasterTech held their ground against the insurance company to assure me the repairs would be done properly, and to the standards the coach was originally built to. They refused to jeopardize their quality and materials when instructed by the insurance company to ?splice wires, and use cheaper materials?. MasterTech not only protected their high standards, but also represented us against an insurance company trying to cut corners at our expense. Picking up the coach, I was extremely impressed with the workmanship. It truly was like new, with great care in the details and workmanship. Every function affected by the new wiring checked out perfect. Tanks were filled and level systems recalibrated for new level system. We could not be more pleased with the work. We are looking forward to some updates to the interior being done by MasterTech. I think the most important aspect of this experience is the efforts of MasterTech to hold true to their quality standards, and not cut corners. They take extreme pride in their workmanship and products. In addition, they truly worked on our behalf, for which we are deeply appreciative. Contact Tim, Jack, or Ryan and you will be in good hands. Outstanding, above and beyond.

New base cabinets, Corian counter top, new stove. This was our 2nd time having work done on our unit by Master Tech RV. The first was about 4 years ago when we had 4 Lifeline Batteries installed along with an Xantrex Charger-Inverter. We are in our 6th year of full-timing. The cabinets in our 2005 Holiday Rambler 5th wheel were not solid wood only the doors and drawers were. Over the years of bouncing up and down the road and with the base cabinets being built with light material and bracing we started having issues. One end of the counter top popped off the base cabinet causing the Corian counter top to crack, eventually drawers would not close flush due to the cabinet becoming loose and in our last outing, the oven partially fell into the drawer below while traveling on Rt. 90 East in Minnesota. Come to find out the oven was not sitting on anything solid only flimsy bracing. Luckily we were heading east and only a couple days drive from Master Tech so we made an appointment. After discussing our issues, we decided the best way to go was new house grade base solid wood cabinets, new Corian counter top and although there was noting wrong with our oven, I wanted a taller 22" oven. Now let me tell you, depending on what kind of work you need, it may take a little longer then you thought, so be patient. They are busy and have a lot of repeat customers so this will tell you something about their reputation. We are happy with the cabinets, counter top and oven. The cabinet foreman Steve and his carpenters did a nice job. If the RV starts falling apart, we will just screw it to the strong solid house grade cabinets. During the few weeks we were there, when we had questions or concerns, Jack, Tim and Steve took time to talk to us.

This is 2nd project at Master Tech after an outstanding job on a major repair from squirrel damage that exceeded $13K. This work consisted of removal and replacement of a fogged drivers window and replacement of a faulty tank level sensor. Window repair was fine. Only issue was Master Tech's sub-contractor who could not turnaround the window as first committed. The replacement of the tank sensor and recalibration went very well. I was allowed to work closely with Jim during calibration so we could optimize the calibration to my liking. Jim is an extremely knowledgeable guy and great to work with.

Installed all new front cabinet and flat screen LED TVs throughout my coach along with service items including Hydro Hot and ceiling panels and in motion satellite I've had an RV for five years and been jacked around by Newmar dealers In Florida and by the manufacturer themselves in Indiana I was skeptical going to master tech RV but Jack Harris assured me he would take good care of me and he did. Between his professional staff and quick turnaround time my bus has been often running better than it ever has been I would recommend these people anybody who own a Newmar before they would even consider taking it to another dealership.

Remove Norcold refrigerator and install residential fridge direct wired to inverter. Check all wiring from inverter to battery and grounds. Test batteries and inverter to make sure they could handle residential fridge load. Install new water pump. To our surprise they did this all in one day and did a great job. They had to modify the cabinet for the new fridge and it looks great. Jack Harris is very easy to work with and Joe and the rest of the techs did a great job doing the work and also explaining what they did and answering all of our questions. It was the best experience we have had working with a company to get repairs done and we will recommend Master Tech to everyone and will certainly return with any future work that we need.

Various maintenance items such as replaced gas fill line, replaced brake fluid line, modified space tire rack, replaced cook-top, replaced bath vanity light, remove and service entry door latch and determine cause of generator shut down. Also new cabinet and tabletop was to be built per specifications & drawing furnished. While I was satisfied with the work done on the first 3 items, I was disappointed in the work done on the remainder of the items. The cook-top was not level side to side, I had to show them that. The vanity light was installed off to one side rather than centered. The entry door latch was just cleaned out and sprayed with silicone which I had already done. I wanted to determine why it had jammed closed one night locking me outside. On generator, although I had explained that the problem only occurred when driving in hot weather, the techs just started it up in the shop and let it run with the conclusion that they couldn't reproduce the problem. Then the cabinet and table top were late and neither matched the existing cabinet color nor followed my specifications. While everyone at Master Tech was friendly, most work takes a very long time. Be prepared to wait. Finally I received no response when I emailed Tim, Jack and Ryan 3 times afterward regarding my experience. After a month, I had to call two times regarding a back ordered item that I had paid for but never received. I did finally receive a credit for the missing item and the 30amp cord that I had left outside the morning I left feeling very disappointed. I would not return to Master Tech.

These guys turned a lemon into lemonade. We were traveling from Texas to Indiana to pick up a trailer. We soon found out a Texas company had caused major damage to our electric system. It was Friday night and the guys were off and leaving to go home for the weekend. They saw us and every guy dropped what they were doing and jumped into our vehicle. No thought of going home. Joe the lead tech and every one of his team were incredible. They reworked all of the damaged wiring and most importantly made our vehicle safe. I personally run a top notch service company. These guys blew me away and showed me another level. Much Appreciated.

Rebuild leaking Aqua-Hot boiler and burner. While packing for our winter migration south I noticed and smelled diesel fuel and antifreeze in our Aqua-Hot bay. While not having much success with RV repair facilities in our area my wife got on the RV service blog sites and found all of the good reviews about Master Tech. When I called Master Tech Jack Harris was the first person I talked with. Immediately I knew I was talking to a person who knew about Aqua-Hot. Now Aqua-Hot had told me that the repairs to this particular unit would take 4-6 weeks. Jack told me if I would get the unit up to him ASAP he would probably have it done in a week. Now I live 480 miles away but we jumped in the coach and drove up to Elkhart. When we got there they looked the coach over and said that it would take a couple of days for the warranty adjuster to get there to go over the estimate of repairs. Now we at 4 days before Christmas. My wife and I head back home and wait for the call. December 27th I call Jack and he said that the adjuster has approved the rebuild cost, after some persuasion on Jack's part-Our coach is a 2002 with an extended warranty and of course insurance companies are hesitant to pay, and the coach should be ready to pick-up on December 29th. We head up on the 28th while staying in contact with Jack about the progress. On the 29th of December the coach was ready to go. Now I must note that this was not just any Aqua-Hot rebuild. Joe and his crew took my system from the old external loop boiler to the new internal loop system. There is less chance for leaks to develop and the efficiency of the system is improved. I've been on the road for 2 weeks now with the new system and it has never worked better. My suggestion to any Aqua-Hot owners who are experiencing problems or need service to use Master Tech. It is worth the drive. Or look for them at any rally or vendor gathering that you may be attending. Again I can't say enough about Jack's handling of my repair claim and Joe's knowledge and repair of my Aqua-Hot system. It was the holidays and you guys went above and beyond. Thanks guys for a job well done!

Remove carpet and tile from front of coach to rear bedroom and replace with tile. Replace bedroom carpet. Replace love seat with recliner. Refinish cherry dinning table and make removable table leaf. Wife and I met with Jack in the summer of 2011 to discuss work we wanted done and set a date. Decided on winter since their work load is a little less. Set date of 12/09/2011 to bring coach to them. When we delivered the coach on 12/09/2011 Jack went over the work we wanted again and put the coach inside their shop. Jack said due to holidays and people taking off some for holidays he needed three to four weeks to complete the work. Jack called me in about a week to inform us that they were having some problems removing tile in kitchen and bath. Labor would be a little more because was taking about twice the time estimated to remove the tile. I didn't hear back from Jack until around the end of first week of January. He said coach would be ready to pick up on the 9th. We also had them to install a 32" TV we supplied due to a theft about two months prior. Jack got us a discounted rate at motel that night. We picked up coach the next morning, were very pleased with the work and service preformed by Master Tech. GREAT JOB!

Replace carpet and flooring. BEWARE: We signed a bid from Master Tech RV Services in Elkhart, IN for time and material to have the floors redone in our 2002 Dutchstar. When the work was completed we were not completely satisfied with everything that was done and expressed our concerns to Josh and the technicians. When we received the final statement it was not even close to the original bid. We did change the type of flooring that we wanted installed but were assured that we could have it for the same price. When we received the final bill we were charged an additional $576 for the flooring. We were also charged the upper range limit on the number of hours that was written on the bid for each job plus an additional 9.45 hours for an additional charge of $614.25. The Adura Plank flooring that Master Tech installed had larger seams than we thought reasonable and Master Tech?s solution was to fill the seams with caulk. The seams of the underlayment are raised and are visible on the planking. The new carpet Master Tech installed on the slide did not lay flat on the floor. Master Tech promised in writing that it would be replaced and when we returned to have the work done, the owner of Master Tech RV Service, Tim Klenk, refused to replace it but did fix it in a way that was unacceptable to us. I could go on but the final rub was the fact that the owner of Master Tech RV Service, Tim Klenk, refused to meet with us face to face and hear our concerns. Master Tech is an example of poor customer service and misleading quotes for time and material. Tim does not appear to care if you are satisfied or not, especially after he has your money. Do not take Master Tech for their word and do not believe their bid! Buyer beware and stay way from this place if you are looking for honest quality work and costumer satisfaction on interior remodeling of your motorhome.

Returning a second time to have our bedroom carpet installed. When there the first time we had the front of our rig carpeted and tile installed, but ran out of time to get the back done. Master Tech stored our left over carpet for our return. We had our mud flap reattached and entry way step treads redone. Also the air condition checked. We wrote about our billing after the work was completed. Speaking with Jack we found there was a mistake due to new service writer. The bill was quickly rectified. Thanks Jack! This company goes the extra mile for it's customers. Jim we are admiring your work each day.

Delamination on two side walls of 40 foot Monaco RV. Touch up paint while in paint booth. Tile work at entry, New Entry Steps, Remove and Replace part of 3M diamond shield. Chassis Oil and Lube..Genny Oil Change. Started out great and was very impressed with Jack and Tim the Owner. January 1st I picked up coach discover that no touch up painting was completed and was told by Jack "We don't really to that". This was hard to understand as Jack and I spent 20 min putting tape all over my RV in places for touch up. Still no explanation. Further inspection in their shop revealed that one of the sidewalls that was replaced still had a good size "Wow" in it. Jack told me that is normal and this is what they look like coming out of factory. Take RV home and go to use keyless entry to find out that it does not work. Call Master Tech with issue and they deny ever touching the keyless entry. I had to show pictures taken of when I was in shop showing the keyless entry hanging out of RV. Next day I go into my front fuse panel to find the cover on the floor of hold and the fuse panel completely unprotected. Again call Jack to ask how this happed. Again Jack say. "We did not go into the panel" Again go to the photo's. The motto seems to bed deny deny deny deny until owner can prove otherwise. Still perplexed with "Wow" inside wall I take a movie and send it to Jack who advises I make the 4 hour drive back to Elkhart so they can look at it. I oblige. I take day off work and spend the fuel cost to go back to Master Tech and pull RV directly into bay. Master Tech mechanics jump right on it and assure me this is not delamination but a small glue issue should only take a few days. After 3 weeks of not hearing from Master Tech I call back and Jack casually mentions that they had to pull the side wall off and replace the wall again as when the did the work the first time they failed to notice that the insulation that was to bond the side wall was too far gone to adhere the new side wall. Thus in the end they had to pull side wall and now replace the insulation as well. OK, glad it is getting done right? With the RV now being in shop for almost 3 months I start to call because I really would like to use the RV. Jack says on a Wednesday, will be in paint on Friday and out by Monday. No call, so later the next week I make several attempts to call Jack and no response. Few more weeks pass. We agree to meet half way to exchange RV but Master Tech had one more curve ball. My oil change and lube was a stunning $940.00 dollars. I was quoted $99 for generator and $299 for chassis plus parts. When I disputed this with Tim the owner he advised me that they do a really good job and change a few more filters than most. He also held my RV hostage until I paid the $900 plus ransom even though he already had over $24K of cash from this project. I drive two hours towards Master Tech to receive a call that they have not left and will not leave for a few more hours. This lack of communication is more then I can handle we argue and after me getting loud and upset they agree to deliver RV to my house. Next day RV arrives at my house, unwashed. Shop dirt all over interior so bad that I have to hire a cleaning company to clean RV interior at a cost of $200 plus. There is also over spray on front of coach which they again deny but with two Master Tech mechanics in my drive they both agree it is over spray. Jack says he will send me a box of cleaning supplies to clean the front of RV. One month later and two more phone calls it never arrives. Master Tech no longer will take my calls or answer my emails appears they have been caught in their own mess and cowardly have decided to go underground and force me to share my experience on these types of forums. The leather seats were so soiled that Chem Dry the cleaning company tells me they are not able to get the seats clean so I am now looking at my options as Tim and Jack have taken the silent approach to resolving my issues. Let me say this. This may of been a good company at one time but I feel they are now too big for their own good. Nobody will admit a mistake. They will tell lies. Misrepresent over commit and under deliver. The lack of communication was so odd I wonder how they can run a business. Anyone can contact me should you like more detail. I still welcome Master Tech to respond to my numerous attempts at resolution and if I do I will re post with results. Update: ======= Since my earlier post I have been contacted by Master Tech several times and had several conversations with Jack Harris. As noted earlier I would update post once Master Tech had a chance to respond and react to my earlier critical posting. At this time they have responded by apologising and giving me $200 dollars good faith money for troubles and sent a bottle of leather cleaner. I don't expect any further post's on this topic however should anything transpire I will post objectivly. Be sure to read Service Provider Response below

Aqua Hot maintenance Did a very good job on my Aqua Hot. Replacing some parts and tuning up the unit. Started using it that night, by mid afternoon the next day it stopped working. I got in touch with them and later that day the tech, Darin, and Jack came to see what the problem was. They started looking for bad switches and checking the unit brain. After about an hour they found a loose connection on a terminal block that plugged into the top left of my circuit board ( I know because I watched them work on it). This was my problem not theirs, it had nothing to do with their service. They got the unit back together and I asked Jack how much service was. He told me not to worry about it. I ended up tipping the tech for his hard work finding the cause of my problems. Thanks to Jack and Darin

Replace toilet, repair interior woodwork. The work was poorly performed. When finished several screw plugs were missing and the wood trim worked loose again within days. We had them do rework a few weeks later at Goshen. They never installed the missing plugs but promised they'd be sent to us by mail (as of December 15 2013 we're still waiting!) In our opinion this facility is grossly overrated and most definitely way overpriced. We will not return for any level of service nor can we, in good conscience, favorably recommend this firm.

Body work, residential refrigerator replacement, annual service, various repairs. Mastertech does some things very well and some not. For body work and paint, Troy is a master and is the best. They do excellent renovation work and our residential refrigerator job was excellent. As an added bonus, they give the customer easy access to the work area and you can speak to the tech directly. I would not go there for an annual service. They charged me $850, two hundred more than Cummins Coach Care. Also, I feel they pad the bill with more hours than is necessary when doing various repairs. I would not go there for tires as they outsource that job anyway. Also on the downside, their lead tech has left to start his own business in MT but they do have some sharp guys still working there. However, the body work done on our coach by Troy was nothing less than spectacular. He is a perfectionist and it shows. Feel free to email me about any particulars.

No trace of anybody having been in the coach. Master Tech RV's personnel were extremely competent and professional. Our experience with Master Tech and all of its employees was extremely pleasant.

Remove carpet and ceramic tile and replace with vinyl tile. On removing the present flooring they found a section which was rotten and a growth of black mold, which required replacing that section of floor completely. In replacing the tile it was also found that the side-wall had delaminated and had to be replaced from the slide to the rear cap and repainted. We also ordered a recliner and had a computer desk built and installed. We also had the TV replaced which needed the cabinet over the dash re-built The wood of the replacements was stained and finished to match existing cabinetry. The interior of the coach looks much more spacious with sofa in the slide removed and replaced with the recliner and computer desk in its place. I would highly recommend this company for any work needed.

We attended the FMCA Rally in Perry, GA and upon a recommendation from friends who have had work done by Master Tech. We met Tim & Jack and after talking with them and getting an estimate we decided to have our coach re-carpeted. We have a 2005 Allegro Bay which looks in new condition except for the interior carpet. We made an appointment to arrive on Sunday April 17th and were met by Tim the owner of Master Tech, he hooked us up with electric and water for the night and promised that Monday by 8:30 AM we would be in the shop, they would do the bedroom carpet first as we were living on board. Monday at 8:15 they were ready and the coach went into the shop. Monday night the bedroom was finished and we were permitted to stay on board for the duration. Tuesday morning Jack Harris advised us that the remainder of the work would be done by Thursday. Also at this time we asked to have a window awning installed over a bedroom window. The entire job was finished by late Thursday afternoon as promised. We can not say enough about Master Tech and their service crew, they are on a scale of 10 a 11+. Can not say enough about them. If in the future we need work done we will surely travel the 1200 miles from Florida to have them do it. Jack Harris was an excellent expediter, he kept coming into the waiting lounge and advised us of the progress, and answered any questions we had. Again our appreciation to Jack and the crew, especially Joe who had a very deep commitment to doing the job right. Our coach now looks new both inside and out. Thanks again Master Tech.

Removal of vinyl decals, Michelin tires, and memory foam mattress. We are repeat customers; in fact, our 1st visit with Master Tech was around the same time frame last year. (Our 1st review is dated 9/27/2010.) This year we decided to have the vinyl decals removed and painted back on. Additionally, we had the front/rear caps repainted. Our 2002 Monaco Diplomat looks brand new. Many thanks to Mike and his paint crew; we couldn't be more pleased and satisfied. They were very professional in their effort to do an excellent job and the finished product reflects that effort. Also, a big thank you to Ryan Lantz's observant eye. He noticed a rear tire had a large protruding bulge in the sidewall. Master Tech was able to order/install 6 new Michelin tires. Another example of how much we are appreciative to everyone at Master Tech...from Tim (the owner), Jack, Ryan, and Joe; they all really know how to make each customer feel special. A great staff with outstanding work ethics! Also, we were in need of a new mattress for the bedroom. Jack works with a manufacturer of memory foam mattresses for RVs and that is exactly what we were looking for since you can flip this mattress. We are very happy with the mattress; it is comfortable and should last us a long time. In closing, as you might expect, we continue to highly, highly recommend Master Tech to all of our RV friends.

Aqua hot would not heat up past 110 degrees and would fall off to under 90 by the time you had a 2 minute shower. After spending $400 dollars at the Monaco plant in Elkhart to get our Aqua hot running right, all we came out with was a lot of bunk about our 100-110 degree hot water is as hot as it will get. Long story short, we called Aqua Hot and they said take it to Master Tech RV. We did, and now it runs at a steady 132 degrees! Tim, the owner, also worked with our extended warranty and we came out spending less than we did at Monaco. They also love dogs, and have lots of chew toys and stuffed animals around the office for them to play with. Another thing they have that the Monaco factory waiting room doesn't is WiFi.

Our holding tank fell while traveling, dropping the underbelly and severing our brake wire. All of the staff of Master Tech made sure that all work was completed in a timely manner. We were traveling from MN to WV and they were on our way. They were very accommodating, even letting us live in our RV in the back lot when not being worked on and awaiting proper warranty paper work procedure. One trailer was in their shop, we were complete in a matter of hour. Their attitudes made a bad experience a good one.

We love our Monaco even more. Thanks again for a job well done, You made it so simple.

Travel trailer slide-out sprocket replacement. Siding replacement. On Thursday night before the Labor Day weekend. We tried to put our slid-out out, one of the sprockets broke, and the cylinder pushed the siding out. This was an almost new trailer, We had bought it new just before Memorial Day weekend. Friday morning I called the manufacturer and they told me to call Master Tech. They told me to bring it in and they would see what they could do. Well it turned out they happened to have the parts in stock to get us so we could camp over the Labor Day weekend. They even stayed past their normal closing time on a Friday night before a Holiday weekend so we could enjoy ours. It was almost 6:00 pm when I left. They also worked with the Manufacturer to get all the repairs done under warranty. I took it back a couple of weeks later to have the cosmetic work completed. Once again, excellent job. We will definitely go back for any repairs or modifications needed.

We camped on site over two weeks - they provided power, water and dump station at no charge.

Transmission gauge wasn't registering correctly. It either didn't register at all or was bouncing all over the We arrived with our 2004 Monaco Diplomat a day before our scheduled appointment, parked the coach (they have free hook-ups) and left for the afternoon in the "toad". When we returned, the work had already been completed! To our amazement, it didn't cost us an arm or a leg either, which is good, because we already lost them at the fuel pump! Tim and Randy and their crew know that our time is valuable - We can see that their goal is to keep us on the road with quality work done efficiently. We've recommended their service to our friends and to people we meet along the way - With only one visit to Master Tech, we feel like we're old friends already. If we ever need work done on the coach in the future (and which RV doesn't!) we'll certainly bring it to Master Tech!

Full body paint job, replace seals on 3 slides, realign 3 slides to spec, repair bathroom wall delamination, replace carpeting, replace slide toppers, Install new window awnings. It would be a disservice not to warn the RV public of Master Tech RV of Elkhart, Indiana, regarding their poor quality of workmanship, inability to provide a reliable estimate of cost and completion time. The following will give you a synopsis of our encounters with Master Tech RV. We attended a Master Tech seminar at an RV rally in Georgia in the Spring of 2011 and had them inspect our coach to have it refurbished, including a full body paint job. After being given an estimate of cost and completion time, we scheduled the work to be done in the Fall at Master Tech in Elkhart, IN. Knowing that we would have to vacate the coach for the 4-5 weeks they estimated for this work to be done, we rented a furnished apartment in Elkhart. Our 4-5 weeks turned into a full 8 weeks, with no rhyme or reason for their many delays. During this period, we questioned Master Tech several times to determine if we were still on budget with their estimate. They said they reviewed the estimate and assured us we were still ?good?. After all was said and done, and our coach was to be ?ready? in 2 days, we asked for our invoice. The morning we were supposed to leave, Master Tech advised that they had to review the estimate as it appeared that all costs were not put in -- this took them 5-6 hours - and they then presented us with a bill approximately 18% over their estimate. Of course, this did not include the additional 3-4 weeks rental for the apartment. Thoroughly disappointed and aggravated, we left for a commitment we had in Florida. Three days after we left Master Tech, we discovered sewage leaking from the toilet. Upon inspection, we found that, when Master Tech re-installed the toilet, they replaced the seal with the wrong model, which allowed sewage to leak onto the floor. I located an RV supply store who had the correct seal and replaced it, correcting this problem. Our next event was to attempt to use the TV antenna -- it would not turn. Upon roof inspection, I found that it had been sealed down by Master Tech. I removed the seal material and cleaned the area to make it functional again. Then came the galley slide fiasco: We noticed light coming in under our galley slide. Upon inspection, I found that a 3? section of the wiper seal was missing. Master Tech had replaced this seal -- except for 3? of it. By now, of course, we were in Florida. I contacted Master Tech, who suggested (1) we return to Elkhart, 1500 +/- miles, for repairs; or (2) they would fly a tech down to us; or (3) they would contact a repair facility in Florida to replace the missing seal. We chose option (3) and re-routed our travel and took 2 days time and additional expenses to have the work done in Florida, Master Tech did pay for the RV facility?s bill. Next, we discovered that our lounge slide had no wiper seal on it at all. It was removed at Master Tech and never replaced. I contacted them and they sent me the seal and I replaced it myself. Then we noticed that the new slide toppers, that Master Tech recommended to replace our old toppers, were bumping up against the coach and punched holes in the new paint down to the fiberglass. I couldn?t fix this one myself; this had to be repaired at Master Tech. In addition, the galley slide was still showing light on the floor inside, under the length of the slide. We agreed to travel back to Elkhart in April to have these repairs done (1,000 miles and a frustrating week out of our lives). The paint was repaired, not by Master Tech, but by the painter who they contract, who does an excellent job. Master Tech extended out the toppers with spacers to keep them from hitting the side of the coach, and they supposedly fixed our galley slide alignment. NOTE: The first hard rain after leaving Master Tech we had water coming from the top of the galley slide onto the stove/counter top, which we had to sop up with bath towels on top of the galley slide behind the molding. We never had any water problem with this slide before Master Tech 'realigned' it. Our solution is to bring in the galley slide when we expect it might rain hard. There was still light coming in across the bottom of the galley slide, so I purchased new slide material and installed it across the bottom of the slide area to solve this problem, which Master Tech failed to do for the second time. This concludes our saga with Master Tech. Needless to say, we would not recommend Master Tech to anyone for anything. We have been full-timers for over 6 years, have had work done by several RV facilities throughout the country, and have never encountered 'RV repair specialists' like Master Tech, who have displayed a total lack of professional, quality workmanship, with complete disregard for their customers.

This may seem odd, writing a review on work done in 1999 (or there about). I recently was at the Rally at Daytona Beach and also at the FMCA Rally at Brooksville FL. MastertechRV had booths at both, I recognized the name but my memory of them was a small company in Elkhart. I asked Jack Harris at the Daytona Rally if it was the same company and he said yes. Tim Klenk was not there but it brought back a very favorable memory. Back in the fall of 99 (approx) we were camped in Western New York State. The morning we were heading out there was a heavy rain and in my rush to pack up the 50 amp power cord shorted against some connections. Shortly after that we realized we had lost all electrical power to the coach, the chassis seemed okay. We stopped half way to the Elkhart area and phoned ahead to Newmar for assistance. (Our Newmar Mountain Aire was pretty new so we thought we would go straight to Newmar.) They were booked solid but recommended Tim at MastertechRV. Tim said to come on over, he would fit us in. We explained the problem, and mentioned another irritating electrical problem that was intermittent (and that other RV repair centers had not been successful in repairing). When we returned later that day not only had he fixed the main problem, but had also isolated a faulty relay which was causing the other problem. I have mentioned Tim and MastertechRV to others over the years but only recently did I realize how his company has grown. He gave a seminar on Aqua Hot systems at the recent FMCA Rally that was very informative. I got to chat with Tim for a while and cannot emphasize enough what an asset he is to the RV community. Excellent. He got us fixed and back on road the same day as our appointment. I would not hesitate to use MastertechRV or recommend them to others.

It doesn't help to have an appointment here because if you don't keep on them, your work won't get done. We had an appointment for the bottom skirt to be painted. Six weeks later, they hadn't started it. We started pushing and kept on them day after day until it got done. Tim thought our stripes needed to be re-done. We agreed to that. It was a very poor job. . . they blistered and peeled. He told us to bring it back "next year." We had several items on our punch list, some got fixed, some not. When we really started pushing, we got band-aid service. Always running other stuff in around our rig. Some things we paid for were not fixed. Some things quit working soon afterward. Some things were OK. Cannot recommend. Would not go back. Nothing done by date promised.

Bedroom Slide out, Carpeting, Tile, TV's, KVH Sat, Mirrors, Full Custom Paint. Referred by Newmar, work was outstanding, the team really worked to complete our restoration, customization on our RV. Best quality and workmanship in the business, that attention to detail and price is what made the difference. Sure beat trading it in, as dealers would not give us squat.

KVH Sat Dish, Aqua-Hot, Chassis Service, Tires, Alignment, Clean Carpets. Definitely the best I have seen in the business, three days and everything taken care of. All parts, tools and knowledge to do my repairs. Listen everyone, Team MasterTech is who you need to go to. We will be back when we need anything done to our unit. Our Travel Supreme has never run this good. Answered a lot of questions other Travel Supreme former techs couldn't I guess that is why Travel Supreme is out of business.

Updated software of KVH Tracvision Satellite dish. Excellent !!! Tim (the owner) reprogrammed the motherboard and RF communication boards in my Mobile satellite antenna. The process was started by the dealer that sold the coach, claiming they could do the work. Tim repaired the incorrectly started upgrade with direction from KVH technical support. The fix was ~ $300 but well worth the money, the dealership wouldn't have gotten it going for weeks. I can watch CNBC and the wife watches her Food Network. Ahh, domestic tranquility

Corrected the venting for a Dometic, Side-Wise refrigerator and installed a gasket seal kit for same. We have a 07 Monaco Camelot with the Dometic, NDA1402 refrigerator. The refrigerator is in a slide-out, so it has a top vent in the side in place of one on the roof. It has never performed to expectation. It does OK in cooler climates, but not in the warmer climates. We went to a RV show in Elkhart on a Saturday and Tim( the owner) from Master Tech had a booth there. I explained my problem and that we were just passing thru, he gave me his card and said to call Randy. his service manager Monday morning for an appointment. They got me in early Tuesday and Joe found the problem(s) immediately -- Monaco had installed the refrigerator as though it would have a roof vent. Joe removed the wrong baffles and added another exhaust fan and insulation. The refrigerator door seals were leaking air and since the doors have no adjustment he installed a gasket seal kit. The refrigerator now does what it was designed to do. I have been in many repair shops and this is the quietest one I`ve ever been in. Each tech has his own job to do and he does it without the bull and the chatter that usually goes on. They truly do care for their customers, thanks.

Troubleshooting a 12V electrical issue, patio awning broken, entrance door awning material replaced, and a faulty fuel sending unit on a 2002 Monaco Diplomat. We scheduled an appointment with Tom and arrived on Sun evening. Monday morning, bright and early, we got with Tom and Joe. Joe and his crew immediately started troubleshooting the electrical issue and by the end of the day it had been diagnosed and repaired. The next day it was determined both awning springs had snapped so those were replaced. In the meantime, we discussed some other items with Tim and Jack which included replacing deteriorated side molding and the driver's side thermal pane window seal was broken. Additionally, we learned Jack had just returned from a training trip to TX where he was educated about MCD Shades from the manufacturer. Tim and Jack agreed they had the time to work the molding and window issue plus ordering and installing the new MCD shades for our motorhome. All our interactions with the personnel at Master Tech were extremely pleasant and we could tell everyone knew what they were doing plus the work was accomplished in a timely manner. We definitely recommend Master Tech to all our RVing friends and, if at all possible, plan on using them in the future. Full body paint, carpet replacement, etc. etc. etc????????? There is nothing this company cannot accomplish on an RV.

We attended the Master Tech RV seminar presented by Tim Klenk and Jack Harris at the Escapees 50th Escapade in Goshen, IN. We made an appointment to get our 2 slides adjusted and to talk about getting our 14 year old 5th wheel painted. When we arrived on 4 Oct I had a whole list of upgrades and maintenance items for them to perform. The list included new gaskets around the slides, installing an A/C unit in the kitchen area, replacing the bedroom carpet, changing faucets in kitchen and bathroom, replacing wall lights, adjusting our front door, repairing/replacing a Fantastic Fan, replacing the fabric covered valance boxes with plain wood ones, installing wood fascia boards on the big slide frame, refinishing the kitchen floor, fixing an electrical short problem in the bedroom, and finally getting a full paint job on the trailer. It was obviously more work than they had planned for when we arrived but they jumped right in and started making it all happen. I kept adding things to the list too so it kept them on their toes. The paint process required us to be out of the trailer for two full weeks. There was a lot of preparation work required to get the trailer ready to be painted. The painting itself was easy. Then everything had to be put back together plus there was my list to take care of. Everyone in the shop and the office was always helpful and friendly. Tom, Jack, Tim and Rosie were always available for questions or concerns. There was some miscommunication at times but everything was always quickly resolved to our satisfaction. My list of requested work was completed with professionalism and pride. They even cleaned my carpet! In the end we felt like part of the Master Tech family and we will certainly be back to visit them next time we are in Elkhart.

Replaced tile, carpet & blinds We can NOT say enough good about the guys and lady at Master Tech. Each person has a job to contribute to a most skilled team. Tim, Jack, Rosie, Tom, Joe, Jim and Keven are the ones that worked with us the most. There are more wonderful workers that were there to smile and answer questions you may have. The work done was superb. We are planning to go back to get more work next fall. This was the best experience we have ever had with any business.

After attending their seminar at the Fleetwood Rally in DuQoin, Ill, Tim gave us a good estimate for replacing our worn carpet with beautiful Travertine tile and installing a flat screen TV. Due to health problems with friends, we had to change our date with them several times. They bent over backward and rearranged their schedule to accommodate us. We were extremely impressed with the entire Master Tech team. They were very friendly and professional. Jim, the installer, did a prompt, outstanding job on both the tile and the TV. Tim, the owner, constantly checked on progress and asked if we were pleased with how the job was going. The answer was an emphatic yes!! Jack and Rosie in the front office were terrific too. We were able to stay in our rig each night with electric for our A/C (it was very hot out). We couldn't be more pleased. Outstanding all the way. We heartily recommend this crew for any type of RV work.

Customer satisfaction is extremely important to them and they do whatever it takes to meet the customer's expectations. Quality of the finished product is top notch. We'll be back for more updates to our coach as our budget permits.

Collision - Ceramic flooring - Carpet Bedroom - Chassis-Generator Service I met Team MasterTech at Indgo Ca. RV Rally as I attended there Aqua-Hot Seminar and also on RV Renovation. It was a pleasure to see enthusiasm and drive they have for RV Service. I had my Aqua-Hot Serviced - I was really blown away - all parts were on hand and no shortcuts taken.. So on our trip to Arizona we had a run in with a pole. We decided to head for Elkhart, IN - Progressive Insurance worked with Master Tech on the Collision and Gail and I decided to go ahead with Flooring Replacement - that they had estimated on in Indgo Rally. Loved the service and hospitality and Fair Prices- We received 15% off our service upgrades.

Aqua Hot - Flooring - Collision/Paint - Slide-out Delamination- *Indiana's Only Country Coach Authorized Factory Service* We could not be any happier with our experience with Master Tech, being a business owner myself the availability of parts for manufactures in and out of business and dealing with the hoops with insurance companies can be a frustrating venture to say the least. Be Patient- We provided an email for contact and were kept informed as the work progressed. Our unit looks better than new. Great job and we are so glad we chose Master Tech RV Service and Collision over other service providers.

Basement storage area and most basement compartments leaked water when vehicle was driven in rain. This was a problem that was worked on by the selling dealer on three different occasions with the vehicle at the dealer for over 90 days. Then the manufacturer had it two times for a period totaling 62 days. Finally the largest dealer in the Midwest had it for 60 days. After each one of these service organization stays, and I was told they had fixed the leak yet my motor home continued to leak after my first time driving it in the rain. In most cases the leak was not even improved. Finally the owner of the motor home manufacturer requested that Master Tech RV of Elkhart, Indiana be given a chance to solve my problem. While I was skeptical at this point the manufacturer was paying the bill even though the motor home was three years out of warranty. Master Tech RV brought my motor home to their facility and initiated a conference call with their shop supervisor Joe, me and the Body Shop Manager of the last dealer to attempt to fix the problem. Joe questioned me about the history of the problem and the key problem areas. Then he questioned the dealer's body shop manager about his approach to the problem, what observation he had made and the work done. Joe then sketched out his approach. He would put the motor home up on their hoist and begin to investigate the problem with it 5 feet in the air. First a visual inspection to see what they could see and if necessary they would pressurize each leaking compartment and use soap solution to find the problems. After the first week at Master Tech Joe and I had a phone call update. Joe and his team had identified numerous leaks including unsealed basement wall/floor seams, wheel openings that were both not properly sealed and splash shields that were too small for the opening, wire harness pass through poorly sealed, etc. During the second week of work I began to receive digital photos of the offending areas. The fuel tank was also removed during that week to gain access to the forward wall of the basement storage compartment which was one of the main problem areas. I received around two dozen pictures of problems Joe and his team had found and they were ready to begin repair. Week three was spent repairing the problems found including getting new larger wheel opening splash shields. After the work was completed all that remained was a good rain for a test drive. That finally happened the last day of week three and the test drive was a success. Then during the return of my vehicle it received another drive in the rain and another report from Master Tech that the basement and compartments were all dry. I told Joe and the Master Tech folks that I would be happy to write a review but only after I had the opportunity to drive the motor home myself to verify their work. Within two weeks after getting our vehicle back we left on a 6 week trip to see the west coast. It was not until the last full day of driving on our return home that we ran into a serious rain storm and my water leak problem of 5 years has finally been resolved. My motor home was tied up for over 7 months with two dealers and the manufacture over the course of 5 years and no one had been able to solve my problem. I wish we would have known about Master Tech RV four and a half years ago when we first identified this problem. It would have saved me a lot of gray hair. Joe and his team were professionals in every sense of the word. My vehicle was in perfect order when I received it. Unlike the problems from previous service organizations with chips/scratches in the paint, over-spray on painted surfaces from foam, sealers and undercoating used to make repairs. None of these problems left the Master Tech RV shop. I would us Master Tech again for any RV repairs or renovations with full confidence that the work would be done correctly the first time.

Ordered and replaced hydraulic tank for leveling system that was leaking fluid on my motor home. While on trip out west the hydraulic fluid tank for levelers started leaking fluid. I stopped by three RV Service centers hoping to get a repair and was turned down by all three. On way home stopped by Master Tech LLC. Was greeted as I entered office and Tim had my shop order made up in less than 20 minutes. Master Tech is a number one shop and I would strongly recommend Master Tech to anyone needing any type of repairs for motor home.

We have a 2007 Fleetwood Discovery and we wanted to replace the carpeting with Travertine tile flooring. We met Jack Harris at the Fleetwood rally in DeQuoin, Ill. and discussed what they could do to accomplish getting a new floor installed. At that time we also decided that we would like to replace the current dining booth with a free standing table and chairs, and because we would loose our storage drawers under the booth, we determined that we could remove the stove/oven and replace it with a stove top unit and then have them build two deep drawers in the space that the oven originally occupied. At the last minute we also asked them to install a ceiling fan in the bedroom. The Master Tech team jumped through every hurtle that came up, and there were several, to get all of this accomplished withing our time frame of one week. They did a beautiful job, the floor is amazing and made the coach look so much larger. The new stove, drawers and fan were also completed and looked great. They said that their goal was to make everything look as if it were original from the factory and they certainly accomplished that goal. The wiring to the wall switch for the fan was perfect and truly looked factory installed. Additionally they left the coach clean inside with no damage or problems. We have already recommended Master Tech to our FMCA club members and would not hesitate to use them again for any additional work.

Service and repair of Webasto heater. After almost giving up on finding anyone who even new what a Webasto heater is, we were thrilled to find Tim, not only knew but was an expert in servicing them. We took our 1999 Country Coach in after lunch and Tim stayed late to get us done that evening. He had all the parts on hand and was very through, even making sure all the leaked diesel fuel was cleaned up.

Leveling system air leak, Vorad sensor not working, electric cord reel repair and awning topper adjustment. Work performed properly and as promptly as parts were delivered. I was very impressed with the walk-in service. The air leveling was important, and the team got me right in and taken care of. I especially liked the good old down home treatment that all the employees gave me.

Replaced damaged inverter, power steering pump, house batteries, added beautiful Summit SS trim, repaired fiberglass body, added Diamond Shield to front end, repaired Washer/Dryer. One of the best things was their special made foam mat. for the bed, what a nights sleep. This was my first experience with Master Tech. I've know Tim and Jack because we do rallies together. I'm Mac the fire guy, and travel all over the US. It's really hard to find a company you can trust. But this guys helped me out when in Brooksville FL at an FMCA Rally. When I came to Elkhart to get the inverter fixed, I just decided to have them do it all. I was so over come by what they could and did do. Hats off to Tim, Jack and their GREAT Crew. Is there anything better then GREAT?
