I'm off to get my MH towed to a place. I called around and the prices for independent shops range from 600-7000 big ones. So I have to decide if I want to spend the extra 300 on customer service at the dealer. They treat me well and try to fix fast. Also, they do stuff without charging extra!?

at least you can hope that the dealer will warranty the work, and stand behind their job. You hope. Its understandable if you are not one who wants to tackle this job, thats why we have pros who do it for us.
Those of us that can do it are blessed in the ability to do so. I am one who will try to fix almost anything anywhere, MH, house, car, electronics,computers,etc. with the help of screened advice off the net usually......sometimes I wish I didn't, but so far it has worked for me. Good luck and keep us posted.

I burned a starter by installing it incorrectly. Did not use shims and it would not disengage from the engine. A neat learning experience.

I don't know about carrying a starter, but a preemptive replacement every couple of years sounds like a really good idea. Before it fails in the middle of nowhere.
