Any RV service in southern California who can pack bearings on an AS?

I need to have the bearings packed on my 1976 Ambassador and am looking for an RV service provider in southern California who has a good reputation and experience working on Airstreams.

Just my opinion, but greasing wheel bearings isn't rocket science. About anyone who can change a tire can repack their own bearings, including me.

You should be able to have this service performed by about any competent auto mechanic or RV service center (if you don't want to do this yourself). However, you might want to observe, so you'll know how to do it yourself in the future.

Note: Inland RV is in Corona, CA; and Toscano RV is in Los Banos and Gilroy, CA.

I have used American RV in Cypress, CA for several repairs. They have done great work each time and have charged a fair price. They have been in business repairing RV's for over 20 years.

I agree with Phoenix. Any decent mechanic can do this. Check ahead of time and get new seals. Unless you suspect a bearing failure you shouldn't need new bearings. That would add extra time ( cost ) to the job but still within the skills of any good mechanic.

Airstream Los Angeles in San Gabriel. Greg Paulsen is the service manager, he used to do ALL the work for Inland RV .....I followed him to ALA. Inland does not do any service. Greg has been an airstream tech for over 30 years, he's your best bet.
