Anyone know of a V10 shop or RV engine rebuild shop with a good reputation in the LA or SoCal area? Found a pretty good deal on a used RV but needs a rebuild. Only shop I’ve found that’s reputable seems to be in Phoenix that specializes in this situation. Thanks

Before pulling the trigger make sure you can pull that v10 without removing the windshield. An easy rebuild could end up not being so easy to get it out to the shop for rebuild.

It’s the same as your old one. 2011 35qba Do you already know the answer?

We just buy rebuilds from NAPA and swap them out

Thankfully I never had to do that or even fix anything on the tiffin. But from the looks of it I would guess the windshield would have to come out. The “hood” isn’t very big and no way it could come out the entry door

Is your driver door wider than your entrance door? Only time I’ve seen an engine pulled out of my style 99 Pace Arrow was through the driver door

Ok. I thought they removed the whole bottom clip to remove it. I’ll call Tiffin tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up

I’d put a Jasper Reman in before I gambled on an unknown rebuilder . Most MH engines can go out the bottom .
