BEWARE! These people are the {{{worst}}}! The experience was so bad I had to write a review to help save someone else from being SCAMMED by them! I will make a long story short. Brought my vehicle there and needed the AC fixed, a day later they tell me my generator does not work and needs $1,500 in repairs in order to check the AC. I told them the generator works fine but they insisted that they would not look at the AC unless they fixed the (running) generator. When I questioned this the owner Sandy told me to come and get my van out of there (3 times in 3 calls) so I did just that but they would not let me take it when I went down there to get it unless I paid $1500. Now mind you that the parts had no come in or even left Cummins in Newark and Risco would not cancel the order but Cummins said they could but Risco refused while I had them on the phone. Now mind you Risco does not have the parts and yet they would not let me take my van till I paid a bill for labor on these same parts. How can you bill someone for labor on something when the parts haven't even been shipped? So they showed me the alleged other 5 hours of work they put into my van...get this the tech told me he drilled out 2 rusted muffler bolts and pointed where he shortened my fuel hose. Yes folks 5 hours to do what an unskilled housewife or teen could have done in less than a hour! I am disputing it in court and pressing charges on them for committing a fraud on me by charging me on labor and parts never done. They are not only rude but morons and theives. Sure they act all nicy-nice because everyone there must make a commission on how much they can roll you for.

I brought my rig in to have a drain pipe fixed and some ancillary work. I asked them for a number of estimates and to inspect the rig to see if there were any significant issues since I was going on a long trip. I was charged for work they didn't do. I was charged for the drain repair that completely failed. I was charged for estimates. Some of their repairs damaged other items in the RV. They lost parts to the RV. They were unable to install windshield wipers. I was charged for work that was faked and have since been done correctly in Texas. Finally, I was misled as to the hourly rate. They offered to repair the issues, but did not offer to pay to get my rig to their location.

My Class C had failed state inspection for brake balance. They evaluated the brakes and determined that there was some type of contamination in the braking system. They recommended flushing all lines, and replacing all calipers, said I needed an alignment, and that I needed upper and lower ball joints. Their estimate of all of this labor was approximately 22 hours of labor at 92 an hour + about 1600 in parts. Due to the sticker shock, we got a second opinion on the work and the Ford Dealer flushed the brake system and changed the brake fluid. After this I was able to pass inspection and save several thousand dollars.

Air conditioner not working, warranty work on refrigerator, replace three roof vents. They gave me an estimate of the labor and parts that I had to sign prior to the repair. I thought the labor estimation was very high, but decided to get the work done. When I got the actual bill, it was drastically higher. They said in each incidence that they ran into "trouble" and it took longer than expected. It was ridiculous and I had no choice but to pay. I would never get something repaired there again and I will go out of my way to tell people in our camping group what a rip-off they are.

Risco was suppose to make some repairs to my Bus but they didn't do it. The just kept changing parts instead of figuring out what the problem was. They wound up breaking my brand new buses generator. The Bus had to be sent over to them 4 times before I had enough with them and sent it somewhere else. They charge you ridiculous amounts of money to have repairs done that they never did. The people in the office give you the run around. They processed my warranty claim late so they charged me and never sent the difference. They make up fake charges and if you don't pay them, then they call and threaten you. Horrible, they damaged my Bus more than the minor repair it needed. I would never recommend this company to anyone. Their mechanics don't know what they are going and the people in the office are rude and mistreat you. Nasty, and Horrible company.

Pinion seal and brake seal replacement and other things. Paid $1000 for pinion seal and brake seal repair. I found out 500 miles into a trip after a tire blow out that these items were still leaking, work was never done. I called them when I returned but no return call. This is just 1 of many problems. I would take them to court but try to collect. Save your self the headache and expense. STAY AWAY!!!

Generator repair; a new carburetor was installed on generator a few months prior by someone else, which they were apprised of. They spent over 4 hours trying to get carburetor to work, they I was informed I needed a new carburetor. When I picked up coach, I inquired how can I pay for over 4 hours to diagnostics for something that they knew was an issue, then pay for a new carburetor.. Total bill was $1187. Was not advised this would be the case. Asked for a little consideration, go none. Generator works, but probably could have bought a new one for that price. Would not return and would recommend no one else patronizes them.

ABS Brake recall, new jack replacement - originals dropped when traveling at 65mph. Dashboard AC, new electric wiring - a ground short was the culprit, sealed all storage bays. Did a wonderful job in a very short time...found things and repaired them and replaced that we didn't even know about.

Install US Gear Toad Brake Install Blue Ox Aladdin Tow Bars RISCO took one week to do what I was told would take 7 hours..and in the end my coach was not drivable so I had to have it towed to Circle Truck in Shrewsbury, NJ..where it still is ...I won't know any more until Monday the 4th of Oct..but I have taken pictures of the situation which can be seen at my Webshots Albums.. The URL is: http://community.webshots.com/album/179832492CLGJUm Update: ======= It is now March 26th of 2005....and my Coach still sits in my yard in disrepair...cannot pull the car. I paid over 4,000.00 to have Tow Bars and Brakes Installed on by RISCO. $400.00 paid to Advanced RV-Repair of Farmingdale, NJ...and more work still needing to be done before I can hopefully connect and pull my Toad. This incompetent work done by RISCO has also cost me the trip to Az. and Ca. for which the Toad itself and the connections for it to my rig were needed to make the trip possible for me. I have had to retained an attorney..

I have used Risco since I purchased by Gulfstream BTC. They have done all warranty work to my satisfaction. I have had no problems that they could not resolve. They have contacted Gulfstream to get all warranty approvals and have done all repairs in a given time. I would recommend them Highly. Satisfied Customer. Toni Excellent work in a given time. They do warranty repairs on all classes of Motor Homes.

Repair basement AC unit. Excellent. After having my 2002 Winnebago Adventurer sit at Sunbird in Lakewood, NJ for 3-4 weeks, they referred me to Risco. Basically Sunbird, my purchase dealer didn't have a tech who could work on it. Risco actually found a burned circuit board and parts missing from when Sunbird tried to fix it. They handled my extended warranty company and I'm very satisfied with their work.
