  Date of Service:   7/10/2019
  Company Contact:   Residential
  Work Done on:   Toad
  Service Performed:   Outfit a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk for flat towing
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   Had Camping World (formerly McGeorge's Rolling
Hills" outfit my Jeep Grand Cherokee for flat
towing. They installed a base plate, InvisiBrake
and light system (cables and diodes) and a dedicated
charging line. After completion had to take it back
because a bolt holding the InvisiBrake clamp to the
brake pedal arm broke. After that we were going to
take a trip. When we hooked the vehicle up to our
motorhome the InvisiBrake would not work. Called
Camping World and they told us to call RoadMaster.
Roadmaster tech came out and determined the system
was not working and blamed the Challenger's 7 pin.
Issue blown fuses. Bought a new motor home (Super
C) and hooked up the Jeep for towing and the
InvisiBrake did not work. Called RoadMaster and the
regional rep found the Six pin connector installed
on the front of the Jeep was a mess with the
potential for wires crossing and blowing fuses. 20
Amp fuse on the motorhome was blown. RoadMaster rep
rewired the connector at the Jeep, the InvisBrake
and the lighting harness to eliminate the mess. Too
bad "Flat Out Lousy" and "Nowhere to be seen" are
not options for Value of Service and Quality of
Service respectively.
  Value of Service:   Poor

  Date of Service:   4/1/2019
  Work Done on:   Class A - Diesel
  Service Performed:   I took my Class A DP in for several mechanical and cosmetic repairs
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   The experience was horrible. They are keeping customer's RV's for MONTHS without working on them. Look elsewhere whatever you
do. Check out their reviews on Yelp and this news story: https://www.wric.com/news/taking-action/customers-bemoan-rv-companys-

Ever since Camping World bought out this business, things in the service department have gone downhill. They focus on sales
and service is an afterthought. Buyer beware.

  Service Performed:   New coach. Installed Roadmaster tow bar and Invisibrake. Coach REQUIRES a red light to be installed in coach to show
activation of brakes in flat towed vehicle. Sub contractor doing the work lied to me and said no light required. Took four
months to work out the problem. Light installed but towed brakes did not work. Four other dealers could not determine
why.....yikes!!! I finally called Roadmaster customer service. Sent Mr. Graham Dudik some pictures of brake activation pull
cable install. He noticed a 270 degree bend in the cable rendering the pulling motion worthless. I simply re-routed the
cable into an S turn and fixed the problem. One more thing. instead of installing the cable under my towed car floor carpet
the sub contractor simply laid the cable on top of it but at least under my floor mat. Actuating piston was installed under
drivers seat. Cable was too long to brake pedal but shortening it is not easy.
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   Unsafe and negligent.
  Value of Service:   Poor
  Quality of Service:   Poor
  Date of Service:   10/18/2017
  Work Done on:   Class C
  Service Performed:   Test drove the vehicle on Oct. 16. It pulls to the
right when brakes are applied. Stated that the RV was
ready and we went in to purchase the vehicle on Oct.
18th. The problem was not corrected and was not even
addressed at all. It is now Nov. 4th (Sat.) Was told
Friday that the work would be done and they would
call us. They did not call us back and when we called
today, we were told that the manager does not receive
phone calls on Saturday! We hope that the vehicle is
ready by Monday Nov. 6th or we may see an attorney to
get our money back. We have not completed all paper
work but they do have our money.
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   Work is not complete after almost 3 weeks!

  Date of Service:   7/30/2017
  Work Done on:   Class A - Diesel
  Service Performed:   We had a pair of leaks down the inside of the windshield. I told
McGeorge, "Fix it." They removed the windshield, cut away the
fiberglass cap; replaced the cap, primed, painted, and replaced
the windshield. At great expense. First time after that when it rained, same exact two leaks, same
exact same spot.
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   Poorest quality work I could imagine. After I informed them of the
issue I got passed back and forth between Service and the Body
Shop, without resolution.
Now their official position is "We don't do windshields on Class
A's." Shameful!
  Value of Service:   Poor
  Quality of Service:   Poor

  Work Done on:   Travel Trailer
  Service Performed:   I don't leave online reviews typically but in this case I need to let you
know...do not buy from here and do not bring your RV here to be
serviced! We bought our first camper here last year and immediately
the floor rotted out when my husband stepped on it. They did replace
the floor for us which we thought was great. However, they only
replaced the floor up to the shower and never identified where the
leak was. After de-winterizing this year my husband found the floor in
the bathroom to be soft again bc it had been leaking all winter. We
brought it back in in the middle of April and it is now the middle of
July and they have still not fixed it. We have missed so many
camping trips because of their inability to get anything done. They don't
return phone calls and they don't get work done when they say they
will. We finally got the call to come get it today (45 mins from our
house) only to find out that it was not actually ready. We have been
sitting here for FOUR hours waiting for them to "get to it". I wish we
never came here.

  Work Done on:   Travel Trailer
  Service Performed:   1.fix leaks in the water heater system.(first trip)
2.speaker in awning not working
3.cable tv cable not allowing tv to program channels
4.LED cap lights working but all lights not coming on
5.A/C vents away from the A/C units no air flow.
6.leak under island sink (first trip)
7.A/C blew out a freon line.Compressor locked up.
8.leak in front emergency window
9.wrong cable tv jack (just one plug in had one for
cable and satellite until they worked on it)
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   They said that they couldn't get the sink to leak so
i was charged a 37.50 diagnostic fee. Sink leaked
again on the next camping trip. So i took it
apart, redid it and now no leaks
Poor, they had camper for weeks before even getting
to it. Their lot was overflowing with trailers
needing service. Rude service manager (although I
must admit I was not the most considerate customer)
Less than knowledgeable service writer. Long time
replying to emails or calls if they call or email at
all.This was all occurring on a new trailer. i put a
starting date of all the issues above but lets just
say they had my camper more days than i used it all
spring and summer. A little secret if you are near
Richmond VA use Southern RV on Jeff Davis highway

  Work Done on:   5th Wheel Trailer
  Service Performed:   Winterize and finish up work from pick up in August.
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   While I was mad that it was not ready when I bought it they went way beyond my expectations. After reading all the reviews I was afraid I was up a creek. I
did have to call a few times and the person who started with me was gone. But all the parts where in and even winterized my 5th wheel for free. As I was
sitting in the lounge the general sales manager was getting coffee and heard me talking and I mentioned to the lady at the counter about what I read and he
said that he has worked hard to clean it up and if I noticed almost all the issues are from 2008 and older. Seemed like he cared but time will tell. Other than
the first bump I have to say so far the best service I have had in 3 Rv's from there.
  Value of Service:   Very Good
  Quality of Service:   Excellent
  Date of Service:   11/10/2015
  Work Done on:   Class A - Diesel
  Service Performed:   Seal on slide kept leaking. They worked with the manufacture to find out why it would not stop. Turned out to be an issue with the slide topper pulling in
the tip just enough to cause a break in the seal.
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   FANTASTIC. Glad we bought from them as we where sitting in the customer waiting area we found only customers that bought from them. Was nice to know
they only worked on what they sold and we did not get put off for another dealers customers, have had that happen enough. CALL BACKS could have been
better though.

  Service Performed:   When it comes to their service department-RUN!!! Continue reading if interested. We have had our RV serviced there three times, and it is very apparent
that they do not like to do Good Sam warranty work. I scheduled an appointment for a state inspection on January 31, 2015. The appointment was set up
for February 4, 2015. At the time I was setting up my appointment, I was told that they were no longer servicing units that they did not sell. Since I had
worked done there previously and I was having problems with the work that they had performed previously, they would make an exception. I dropped off
my unit on February 4th and I am told it will be about a week before they can get to it. OK, was not told that when I set up an appointment. The other
issues I was having was my jack alarm would stay on after the emergency brake was released, my gas spring on my rear compartment door would not
support the door (spring replaced on last visit), satellite radio would display error message (antenna disconnected-check connection): antenna was re-
located on the first visit while installing new satellite system, and rear satellite receiver would only get Channel 119. We purchased a new satellite system
on the first visit that was supposed to be able to run two receivers at the same time. Satellite system hasn�t been able to run two receivers at the same time
but a handful of times since we had it installed (they will blame DISH but they recommended them).

It was determined that the emergency brake would not pass inspection due to debris in the mechanism and keeping it from engaging. Repair: clean
mechanism and lube. Jack alarm caused by leaking hydraulic line on one of the front jacks. Repair: clean and service all jacks, repair leaking line and fill
hydraulic reservoir, and greased fittings on rear jacks. All I can say is that I just brought this unit back from being in Georgia the last three months, my
leveling devices on my unit never changed from level. I am no mechanic so maybe they can stay up once set, I don�t know. Rear receiver was determined
to be faulty, and I would need to buy a new receiver. The service advisor calls late on Wednesday, February 25 (3 weeks later now) to discuss repairs, and
get repairs authorized. I realized the following day that there was no discussion on what was covered under warranty. I call the service department first
thing the following morning, and the service advisor handling my repair order was out due to a snow storm. I ask the service advisor I am speaking to if he
can follow-up with the service department to see if repairs have been started and if so, was Good Sam contacted for an authorization number. He could
not do that since my repair order was being handled by another service advisor. Really? Everything is on a computer. I receive phone call on Friday from
the service advisor handling my repair order that Good Sam was called but since the repairs were completed, I would have to send them the repair bill for
review. Unit is now ready for pick-up on February 28.

We pick the unit up on March 2nd. I had contacted the service adviser handling my repair order earlier that morning about me contacting DISH on the
receiver since I have always had issues with one or the other receiver, and they wanted to run some diagnostics of their own prior to replacing the receiver.
I was told by the service advisor that the receiver up front was relocated to the back and was working fine. The odd thing was that the rear receiver will not
function unless the front receiver is activated (being told by technician that it acts as a slave to the front unit). I question them on how they could test the
rear receiver when the front receiver was not activated. Response: It was working while hooked up to the TV up front so it was assumed it would be fine in
the back. No need to try hooking up the old receiver. Accused of re-doing what they have done by a service representative. Unhooking and re-hooking
up a receiver? Really? We (my wife and me) spent two hours on the phone with DISH to get the receiver activated. I check the rear compartment door and
the gas spring still will not support the door. We opened the door beside this door and determined they had installed the wrong gas spring on this visit as
well as the visit before. Installed a 60 lb in lieu of a 110 lb gas spring. We come to find out that they don�t make the 110 lb anymore and replaced it with
a 120 lb. Amazing, the door stays up. According to them, the problem with the satellite radio was the radio itself and not the antenna. I will explore this
myself. Go to youtube and find out the issues with Sirius plug and play radios.
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   Finally time to pay the bill-$720.29. I was being charged 1.5 hrs to diagnose and an additional 0.5 hrs to replace and set up satellite receiver. Really?
Unplug a power cord, unplug a usb cable, and unscrew the satellite cable connection; and then plug in power cord, plug in usb cable, and screw in the
satellite cable connection. Needless to say after some arguing about the bill, we paid $562.74 for our state inspection and other items discussed above
that they had re-looked at and installed on prior visits, and got out the door. Get the unit home and notice the inspection sticker says January of 2016.
Get it inspected in February, and get a January inspection sticker.

As indicated in another review, three strikes and we are through. It may have been the case anyway since they are no longer servicing units they don�t sell,
and will not want us back after the hell I raised about the bill. Good luck folks if you break down on I-95 and need service near Richmond! Better hope
you bought it from them or you will be stranded. I left a message for the Service Manager to call me six weeks ago and haven�t heard from him.

  Service Performed:   Bought the trailer a few weeks ago and have nothing but good luck with it. I did need service on my hitch as I installed the brake controller but they where able to fix my attempt at saving a buck. I had done business with them before and it was not pleasant. Now the staff from sales on down to the service folks are all right and they seem to care.... Something new there.... Hope it stays. All I can say is it was nice.
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   Took my money and gave me more than I expected.... Guess I will have to raise my expectations of them now. Y'all keep it up!

  Evaluation of Service Performed:   This was the last time I will ever go to McGeorges for anything, Ever! They got over spray all over my new camper, and ruined the finish getting it off. I have dealt with these clowns for three year now. My previous camper was the same story, always would sit there for weeks before they even start on it. Then take months to finish, only to be disappointed with shoddy repairs and high prices. They are the worst.

  Service Performed:   I have had several issues with them regarding service for my Travel Trailer that was purchased there in March 2009. After taking the camper out for the first few times, took the trailer in to get several items looked at. The awning had a small hole in it and it did not roll up on the bar correctly, after leaving it with them for several days, called back and asked what was going on, was told that the manufacture denied the claim on the awning. I was a little surprised since we had the trailer less than 1 year and we purchased the extended warranty and in my thoughts, this was a defect. I contacted Keystone and was told by them that they had not received any claims regarding my issue. I called Rolling Hills and asked them what was going on and he said they would contact them again, they again told me that it was denied, after calling Keystone again, and given the same response that they had not received any claims, I went to them in person and told them who I contacted at Keystone the date and time when I called them and told them that Keystone was willing to replace the awning. After getting a few weird looks, the guy tried to blame the tech for not filling out the paperwork properly. After getting the travel trailer back, I vowed never to take my service needs there again. I had heard and read about the bad reviews they had been given and decided to give them the benefit of the doubt. Well no more, they have lived up to their reputation. I am removing the dealership sticker from my travel trailer and taking my service needs elsewhere as Keystone suggested.

  Date of Service:   9/17/2010
  Work Done on:   Class A - Gasoline
  Service Performed:   Brought my RV in for repair in August 2010. Requested they fix the following issues: stove burner burns yellow (carbon monoxide danger), backup monitor system video flickers, rolls, blanks out (told service rep that camera & monitor were already replaced & that the problem was in the video cable), refrigerator won't stay cold on hot days, awning cord breaking up causing it to come out of roller tube, generator cuts off during hard turns, big bumps. After 4 weeks I was told RV was ready. Arrived to pick-up RV & batteries were drained to 8vdc, potentially damaging them; stove burner would not lite-when it did, it created a large fireball; awning fabric, only, was replaced (I was told by service rep that metal wrap would also be replaced); generator issue unverifiable; found back-up monitor system had new "monitor" but still had same original problem; refrigerator had thermistor replaced, but found refrigerator full of MOLD and MILDEW. Nothing was fixed the way I was told it would be and I was being charged $1600 (not to mention how much my extended warranty company paid). When I brought all these issues to the service reps attention I got a bad attitude and "well I didn't have time to check out the systems before you showed up" comment. He had no reason as to why I didn't get a full awning with metal wrap. Later he called me and said he "mis-read" the service technicians notes and only the awning fabric was going to be replaced up to the metal wrap. 2 weeks later I was told RV was ready, but the stove couldn't be fixed because the extended warranty company wouldn't approve a new stove (only a burner). The day I went to pick up my RV, I was told by the service rep that he got permission from the warranty company to replace the whole stove. When I arrived I checked the RV and the monitor was still flickering, the stove still made fireballs, the awning didn't have the metal wrap and I couldn't test the refrigerator at all. The refrigerator was cleaned though. After I reluctantly paid the bill, I tried to schedule to get the stove replaced; the service rep basically said "you'll need to take it somewhere else, or have an Amana repair technician come to your house". Basically he was saying they wouldn't service me because I complained about their poor service. When I got home I found that someone from their repair shop had used the bathroom in my toilet (with no water in the system) and left feces and toilet paper in the bowl.

  Work Done on:   Travel Trailer
  Service Performed:   We purchased a used 2005 Forest River from McGeorge RV in Ashland Va. on 03/12/2010 and we had noticed a few little things that we had pointed out the needed fixing before we left with it. It was very late and had spent a whole day in waiting for all the paper work to be completed. One thing in particular was a broken seal around the slide out and definitely wanted that fixed before we left with it! We asked if they where going to close it up, because there was a really bad storm coming that evening and had started to rain a little before we left, and we where concerned about the seal because you could see the outside from inside and we did not want it to get wet! Oh sure we will that care of it they said!!!

So we went home and left the camper for repair and they went inside and gave us all the papers stating that we bought it as is that day!!! So we get a call the next day and said they the had repaired all of the little thing including the seal and inspected it so we could pick it up when we where ready! So we arrive that Saturday to pick it up and we where so excited and we wanted to do a final inspection of our own so we asked if we could see it one more time before we left the lot with it! We open the door and there is no one with us, none of the ever so helpful people that helped us purchase it, no words of encouragement or a picture for the board that everyone else was getting or a ring of the Bell that people that had just purchased an RV that day!

So we walk in our new camper even though it was not brand new it was new to us and quite more then we had went there to purchase but it was really beautiful! Went we walked in we smelled mildew right away and the carpet appeared to be vacuumed so I bent down and the carpet was drenched, I do not mean a little wet I mean like break out the wet-vac and panic wet. So the we put out the slide and mind you they had closed it up and let it sit wet from Monday till Saturday when we have been able to pick it up! So after the slide was out we could now see where mold was already beginning to grow up the wall where the leak had been from the seal they they where suppose to repair was! All the way under the couch and and the wall paper was pealing off where it had gotten so wet from the terrible storm we had gotten the night we left it on the lot with then the day we purchased it!!!

So we go inside and we are so heart broken and disappointed and we think that they are going to help us! We where ask to sit and wait for the manager, as we felt like crying, suddenly we realize everyone in the place that had been so nice to us were totally ignoring us as if we were not there! So after an hour our sales rep come into work and this was his third day on the job and he obviously was not aware of what had happened cause he shook our hand and ask us how was our new camper, so we took him outside and ask him what he thought! He excused himself while we still are waiting for the manager to look at what had happened and finally he come back and says to us, Oh they shampooed the carpet!!! We might not be experts on the RV business but I know that there is no rug shampooer that will fit under the sofa and soak the walls and leave the carpet wet enough to ring out!!! So we go back inside because they have now paged us off the lot to speak to the manager finally! He quickly takes us inside a conference room and shuts the door not to his office cause that is on the floor so no one could hear what we had to say! We explain that it looks like someone left the slide out open the night we had left it for repair, and it is stinking and growing mold!!! He gets really ugly and begins to tell us that we had purchased that unit as is!!! OMG, my blood pressure begins to boil!!! He says that they did the repair and inspected it and it was as is! Well I lost it because here we are with a $10,900.00 hunk of soaking wet molded RV from McGeorge!!! So I threatened to report then to the "12 on you side" news team that investigates fraud and uncovers crooks in the area! Well he did not like that one bit, we had taken pictures with our phone the day we bought and left if for then to repair and again this day as my husband slopped the carpet and photoed the mold on the walls!

So then they said OK we will fix everything and dry the carpet and kill the mold! OK, to make a long story short another week goes by and we go in to get our new camper by this time I really do not even want to go back to this nightmare of a place. So it looked dry and no longer see mold but by then we had no chose but to take it cause it was ours and we had had it with McGeorge RV!

So the next weekend we take it out out on the road just to try it out and we decide till we get use to it we will take a hour trip cause we where looking for property at Lake Anna to put it on so we could use it every weekend! So as we are going across some railroad tracks in a little small town a guy yells at us, and says you have a flat tire! So we stop and put on the spare! Guess what another 30 minutes to the campground we have another blow out, as we pull in!!! So we go and buy a tire! Spent the day doing that! So we set up, finally and we make a fire and calm down from the days event of 2 flats on our new camper!!! All the sudden we hear water pouring from under the camper, we look and there is water leaking from a hole so we run inside see nothing leaking, carpet is getting wet from behind a panel that is screwed in. Get a screw driver and guess what there is a water filter that someone forgot to put the hose back on!!! OMG, McGeorge RV!!! So we dry that out and go to bed, had enough! Two days later we go home with our new camper, no events because we think we fixed all the problems... Not, as soon as we pull out of the campground guess what, another blow out on a tire, by this time my husband is cussing and I am crying! Call roadside assistant, the guy is just laughing cause he is telling us all the tires are dry rotted and they looked brand new and shiny, and had just been inspected by McGeorge RV!!!

So we get a tow and 2 new tires now we need a spare cause we already put that on bought 3 more and make it home and guess what as we are backing into the driveway blow out the Spare we put on the first one at the railroad tracks!!! So by this time we are just laughing and I am sure McGeorge was doing the same as we pulled out of the parking lot with that camper!!! So $850.00 dollars later we have 5 new tires. So now after two years and using the thing 3 times due to an illness we have decided to get rid of it for a smaller one because we purchased a property at Lake Anna with an RV already on it! We want a smaller one just to drag around for weekend trips! So we go to trade it in, NOT at McGeorge and they inspect it and discover that under the slide out where the leak form the seal had rotted out the floor and to fix it someone put a piece of plywood and ducked taped it in and then replaced the fiberglass bottom and even though we heard a clunk every time we opened it, we were told by McGeorge that it was just the floor of the slide out going in place! We were never informed about this, floor being rigged up by anyone at McGeorge, or we would have probably never purchased it. The inspector at the place where we are purchasing our next camper says we can not prove that McGeorge did that since it was ownered by someone else before they got it! But unless you took the fiberglass all out from underneath and inspected you would never see that, and we all do that when we buy a camper! That's where buyer be Leary of Crooks!!! We tend to trust the RV company we are buying cause they inspected it when they took it in, just like they place we are taking ours into is doing for trade in, Only to inform us that it is a $4000.00 job to fix and now we have to eat that! Thanks to McGeorge Rolling Hills RV!

So while we are all excited again about trading in on something else in our soon to be golden years for leisure and no headache and no worries, the man doing the inspection at Southern RV on Jefferson, shows us where the screws are backing out of the floor under the duck tape, that we heard clunk every time we put the slide out was it clunking over the plywood and duck tape that was put in by we do not no who so the slide out floor would not fall out from under us as we ate at the table! We have pictures in case no one believes this story! But since we can not prove that part was done by you know who, Southern RV has been so kind as to fix the problem for $2000.00 plus our sale at there lose just to keep us as a costumers, so that no one else ends up with a slide killing them, if it should happen to fall out while sitting on it or under it! That is literally what was happening, even the fiberglass around it was beginning to crack around it, and we thought it was from the sun! It was from the loud clunk, of getting over the backed out screws! Oh and do not ever trust your State inspected tires from McGeorge cause you may not be as lucky as we where and be just sitting when all 5 tires blow out on you! All's I know is God was with us when they blew out cause we could have been killed had we have been on a highway at a great speed! That's how much they care about there costumers... No wonder no one rang the bells and took our picture when we bought our RV from them, cause they where thinking what suckers. I do not know how they sleep at night!

Southern RV in Virginia has been wonderful to us and we know better now, I have looked for complaints on the web about them and nothing but great reviews. Can't say the same for McGeorge, there is not one good review on here about them!!!

  Service Performed:   I don't know the actual date in May when the work was done. I am the owner of this RV that I have been complaining about since we brought the RV. We still do not have what we need fixed and every time we take it back they do not fix it correctly OR do not fix at all. Example, was told in May 09 that our table top that was ordered is in well we get there and its the wrong table, big surprise, so now they have to order the correct one. They were to fix TV in bedroom and front of cab. The TV in front works, the bedroom does not.

There is Velcro on the back of the cushion for the dining table, the Velcro does not match up and the cushion falls. Guess what they did, they nailed 6 nails in a 2x3 Velcro and it still does not match up.

They was suppose to install an antenna for our satellite radio...guess what happened the antenna is supposed to be magnetic, wrong answer, they cut a hole in our NEW RV hood and attached the antenna. Well on Aug 20, 09 we took it back because the tabletop that was supposed to be ordered in MAY and we kept calling to see if it came in...they never ordered the new one, well it came in and I had my list again. The service manager said he had "good body mechanic" and can fix the hood. I told him I did not buy this RV with a hole in the hood and we want a new one. The tech told us that the antenna should have been installed on the roof..no kidding. There are several other things they need to be fixed...we hope they fix them correctly!! How many more times do we need to go back?? We need these items fix properly because we have an appointment to trade it in.

We did speak to an attorney and the attorney stated if we signed a contract and if either of the parties did not fulfill their agreement..you could have gotten your deposit back. When we had the delivery date in writing and McGeorge's did not deliver on that date...we had them. We have learned a lot about RV's, who is honest and WHO is not. Who is reliable and who is not. Who keeps their word and who does not. McGeorge's is a "who does not".

  Service Performed:   New motor for the slide. New back up camera.
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   We brought the RV on 4/11/09. Was told we would have delivery on 4/16/09. Did this happen, NO. We were called at 4:45pm 4/15/09 and was told they just brought the RV in to be serviced. This company and SERVICE department are not dependable. They take your money and will not give your deposit back when you want to go to a reputable company. The service department will tell you one thing and then not do another. They are very poor in customer service. The service department stated on 4/15/09 that the motor was to be overnighted was it...we don't know. We didn't even know about the camera!!! Now they say it would be Tuesday 4/21/09 before pick up. Will this happen, who knows. The service department is probably telling us this just to get off of their back. Like I told the sales manager "you got our money, won't give it back, but once we finalize the deal, we will never step foot on this property again." The arrangements we had to made just to take 1/2 day off...do they care??? NO. I ask you DO NOT TAKE YOUR RV to MCGEORGE'S Ashland, VA, you will be sorry. Sorry this is so long, but had to let out my frustration.

  Service Performed:   Passenger slide was not fully extending. McGeorges's said a new slide motor was needed. Problem was not fixed when I picked up the unit. I inspected the slide motor and it was covered in dust and dirt -- they had not replaced the motor and were charging me for it! I'll be taking my
RV elsewhere.

  Service Performed:   As we were preparing to leave for a weekend of camping in our Travel Trailer, I noticed that the coach battery was cooked. This had been the first time we had used our RV since having the converter/charger replaced under warranty at the end of the previous season. My concern was that a failure with the new converter/charger was the cause of the cooked battery. On our way out of town we stopped by McGeorge and explained the problem. They tested our system on the spot to ensure that the problem was not with the converter/charger. Upon replacing the battery they showed me what to test using a multi-meter when we arrived at the campground. They assured me that if anything was wrong with the converter/charge they would repair it under warranty and also replace the new battery should anything damage it over the weekend. All systems performed perfectly and the weekend was saved by their fast and responsive service. Other than the cost of the new battery, they charged me nothing to test the system.
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   Fantastic! Immediate response in order to get us on the road to our vacation. Thanks!

  Evaluation of Service Performed:   I made an appointment for August 31st to fix a list of warranty items. When dropped of it was to be finished in 2 weeks, Sept 14th, unless they had to wait on parts. I called on Sept 12th and was told they were waiting on parts to come in. Called on the 14th, still waiting on parts, and called on the 15th and the parts still had not arrived. On the 15th I requested the service writer go through the list on the phone with me to make sure that all the other repairs were finished. During this conversation I found that none of the repairs had been done except the roof, he stated it had been finished. I informed the service writer during this conversation I would be picking the RV up on Sept 22 and I excepted the work to be finished. I called on the 18th and they were still waiting on parts. Called the 19th and the parts were in. This was a different service writer and I told her once again that I was picking the RV up on Sept 22nd and the repairs needed to be finished by then. I called again on the 20th and the 21st to make sure the repairs were being done. Each day I told the service writer that last week the repairs had not been done and I was picking the RV up on the 22nd and I expected the repairs to be finished. I also informed her that I would be there at 3:30. I arrived with my family and dog at 3:25 to pick up the RV and it was found that the parts that came in during the week were not installed. I was told the RV would be ready in 20 minutes while they installed the decal on the side. I later discovered they installed the shower
valve during this time but I was never told this. Finally at 4:45, long 20 minutes, the RV was brought to the front for me to take. I first checked the roof. The tech that did the roof repair stepped on the hitch ball and put grease marks on each ladder rung. The roof now has a hard grey substance covering the damaged area. The middle of the grey patch is a crack with parts of broken fiberglass sticking up through it. The decal was installed and the latch on the compartment was fixed however, the latch was tightened so much that it caved in the outside fiberglass. The shower valve does not leak but it is on upside down. The tech scraped all the old sealer off the panel that the shower valve attaches to but no new sealer was applied and the old sealer was left on the shower floor along with a lot of dirty foot prints. None of the other repairs were ever started or finished. Also, the carpet was dirty and we spent the weekend picking up gravel inside and killing nats and flies. I showed all this to the service writer after she stated that McGeorge�s quality control person went through the RV and checked all the repairs. If they have a quality control person how can they check the repairs if they were never done? I was promised the repairs would be done at another date. I have been trying since the first of November to get another appointment but I have now given up. Worst service I have ever received.

  Service Performed:   When we purchased a 2007 NuWa HitchHiker Champagen, we asked them to install a washer/dryer combo and a TrailAir Suspension. We agreed on a delivery date 10 days later.
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   During the washer dryer installation, they cut a four inch hole for the dryer vent too close to the inspection door, making the door useless. They failed to seal the dryer vent cover properly, which would have allowed water to leak into the sidewall of the trailer had I not sealed it myself.
They called after we signed the contract and told me that NuWa and TrailAir would not allow them to install the suspension mods. End result was that NuWa paid for me to take the trailer to the TrailAir factory at Goshen, IN and McGeorge's would pay for the installation. On completion of the installation, we called McGeorge's to obtain billing information and nobody knew anything about the deal until I threatened to have the suspension pulled off, drop the trailer at McGeorge's the following Friday and have a lawyer discuss the problem with them on Monday. They paid the bill.
When we arrived at the appointed time to pick up the trailer, they did not have the washer/dryer installation complete, the trailer had not been cleaned and several other items we had pointed out 10 days prior had not been taken care of. We took delivery of a filthy trailer at 4 pm that afternoon.

  Evaluation of Service Performed:   Sales experience was OK, but their service department is THE WORST. On delivery day, I arrived at the scheduled time to take delivery expecting it to be ready to go, but I was told it wasn't ready yet. After 2 hours of waiting, they finally called me, we walked out back, and to my surprise, the travel trailer was THE WRONG ONE! The guy that had been working on it for the past two hours to get it ready acted like it was my fault and gave me a hard time. When we checked the paperwork together, all of the paperwork was right, but he had pulled the wrong trailer from the lot.

It didn't end there. I had agreed to the "Teflon spray" package during the sales pitch (which I wish I had declined, but that's another story). Anyway, they didn't have any of the Teflon stuff to spray on the travel trailer, so they scheduled with me to come back. I live two hours away, so this involves me taking off work to have this done. I arrived on the scheduled day at 8:30AM right when they opened up in the morning and dropped the trailer off and drove into Richmond to kill a couple of hours. After a while, I called in to check on the status expecting it to be ready to pick up and was told that they didn't have any of the spray stuff in stock!! The trailer had just been sitting there for two hours since I had dropped it off. After letting the service manager have a piece of my mind, he said he would have one of his guys drive out somewhere and buy some so that they could get it done. So, I waited a couple more hours. Another call, another run around. They finally finished up right at closing time - 5:00PM. But it didn't stop there. When I asked for the keys, THEY COULDN'T FIND THEM. Well, shame on me, I still had both sets attached on one key ring from delivery. But they couldn't really be lost, could they? After talking to just about every person in the service department myself since the service manager had left by now, and after they turned the place upside down, the conclusion by the staff still present was that one of the guys had them in his pocket and took them home with him. They said to call tomorrow and they would get them from him and mail them to me. Well, he didn't have them. After another run around with the service manager and two days after they lost my keys, I finally resorted to leaving a voice mail for Mr. McGeorge himself letting him know about the situation. Within a few hours, they sent somebody on a two hour drive to my house and he replaced all of the locks and provided me with a new set of keys free of charge. They resolved the situation, but it should have never gotten that far in the first place.

Anyway, that's my long story. Their sales department might be OK, but their service has to be the absolute worst in the industry.

  Work Done on:   Travel Trailer
  Service Performed:   Annual servicing of refrigerator, furnace, water heater and air conditioner and repair air conditioner. Also, estimate cost to repair damage done by tire blow out.
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   We had an appointment on 6/13/06. We took the trailer in and left it. On 6/21/06 they called and asked if we wanted the trailer for the weekend. I said yes and asked if the air conditioner had been repaired. They stated that the trailer had not even been in the shop yet, that they were behind, and that they would have it done by Friday.

On Friday, 6/23/06, they called and said the whole air conditioning unit would have to be replaced at a cost of $800 to $850. We had to again inform them that it was still under warranty, something which my husband had discussed with them when we took the trailer in. They then stated they had to contact the manufacturer.
We received a call from them on 6/27/06 advising us that the manufacturer was sending them a new relay and fan motor. We questioned this as they had previously advised us that the whole unit had to be replaced. They then said that it could be repaired.

We heard nothing from them again so I called today, 7/11/06, two weeks later. I was told that they were waiting for the parts. I told them they told us this two weeks ago. After checking, they found the parts had come in and are telling us that the trailer will be ready to be picked up on Friday. We'll see!

They are charging us $100 per appliance for the annual service and wanted another $100 to do an estimate of the damage which we told them to forget.

This is not the first time we have had problems with the service department. Every time we have taken the trailer in we have had to wait weeks to get it back.

We regret having bought the trailer there and will never buy from them again. We are also going to find another servicing facility.

  Work Done on:   Class A - Diesel
  Service Performed:   The following letter is sent to provide you with information of my recent service visit to McGeorge�s Rolling Hills RV in Ashland, VA.

On March 17, 2006, I dropped of my Presidio 39B for the following service items:
� Perform 150 hour service on generator
� Repair water heater bypass valve under sink, this developed leak causing flooding, temporary repair made, Mandalay had sent me the part, I left the part on the sink so they would not have to order another
� Perform alignment (steering wheel is cocked when driving in a straight line)
� Windshield leak (third time for this issue)
� Replace burned out fog-light
� Repair entry door, does not shut without excessive slamming
� Replace engine louver, fell off during first trip from dealer on the way home
� Replace broken ladder
� Replace bathroom shade, broken string
� Replace wet bay strut, door does not stay up
� Replace broken closet door hold latch
� Repair cracked fender, owner caused when hit ditch

After several calls to find out when the rig was ready, I was told it was finally ready on May 12, 2006 (Friday). I had to call to find this out, the service department did not call me. When I asked if I could pick it up, the service writer told me he would call me back. I never received a call back. I called the service department on Monday, May 15, 2006 and told them I would be picking up the RV that day. I was told that there was a broken drawer caused by a technician and they ordered the part and it would be in later that week. I said they could mail me the part and that I needed to pick up the RV.

When I arrived, I was told the RV was being cleaned, i.e. the RV was not ready.

I asked to see the broken drawer because if it was not too bad, I could still use it temporarily. I was told the drawer was sent back to the factory.

After looking over the RV the following was noted:
� Repair water heater bypass valve under sink, this developed leak causing flooding, temporary repair made � REPAIR NOT COMPLETE, ALTHOUGH I WAS TOLD IT WAS AND IT WAS STATED ON THE WORK ORDER AS COMPLETE. ALSO, THE WOODEN SHELF UNDER THE SINK WAS NOT INSTALLED, MORE ON THIS BELOW
� Perform alignment (steering wheel is cocked when driving in a straight line) � STEERING WHEEL IS STILL COCKED
� Windshield leak (third time for this issue) � APPEARS TO BE REPAIRED
� Replace burned out fog-light - FIXED
� Repair entry door, does not shut without excessive slamming � FIXED, HOWEVER, NOW THE DEADBOLT DOES NOT LOCK
� Replace engine louver, fell off during first trip from dealer on the way home � COMPLETE AND LOOKS GOOD
� Replace broken ladder - COMPLETE
� Replace bathroom shade, broken string � COMPLETE, HOWEVER, SHADE WAS INSTALLED BACKWARD
� Replace wet bay strut, door does not stay up - COMPLETE
� Repair cracked fender, owner caused when hit ditch � VERY NICE REPAIR, I WAS TOLD THIS WAS DONE BY AN OUTSIDE REPAIR SHOP

When I asked about under the sink, I was told since they did not have the under sink shelf or backer board, they could not fix. I WAS NEVER CONTACTED IN THE 2 MONTHS THAT THE RV WAS IN THE SHOP ABOUT THIS. Then I showed the service writer that the parts were under the bed where I said they were they day I brought in the RV. ALSO UNDER THE BED WAS THE DRAWER (THE ONE I WAS TOLD EARLIER THAT A TECH BROKE AND WAS SENT BACK TO THE FACTORY).

When I became VOCAL to the service manager, she asked me to step into her office. I said that I think it should be heard about the lousy service I was receiving, especially to the customers in there buying RVs. She then told be she would call the police. I told her to go ahead. After she spoke with the dealer manager, I guess she did not, since the police never came.

After looking over the techs shoulder and explaining how to repair the under sink bypass valve (they did not instill much confidence), the valve and under sink area were finally repaired.

2 � hours later we were finally out of the dealership.

At no time, did a manager come to apologize for the quality of service I received.

I had had issues with McGeorge�s Rolling Hills RV service department in the past and was not confident in their abilities. However, I was told that there was a management change and that things were better. So, I gave them the benefit of the doubt and returned. From the items described here, it is obvious that there are serious service issues with this dealership.

In summary, repairs were not completed to my satisfaction, I was LIED to about the drawer being broken, I was threatened with arrest, and service writers blamed technicians and technicians blamed service writers.

I please ask anyone wishing to consider purchase from McGeorge�s Rolling Hills RV consider another dealer if they wish to have service performed there.

I also ask that Mandalay consider dropping McGeorge�s Rolling Hills RV as a representative for their products.

Thank you.

There were no problems with the work they did. HOWEVER, they did try to sell me on having them check for and clean out any mud dauber nests. Price $400. Told them no thanks.

It took less than half an hour to do this at home.

  Evaluation of Service Performed:   Excellent. Service Department has done a complete turn around. We bought our RV from them July 2004 and had extremely bad warranty service from them for over a year. However, this work was done as promised and on time. The extended warranty provider was properly billed. New Service Manager and service writers. We received two follow up calls for a survey asking if we were satisfied. My opinion of McGeorge has gone up significantly with their new emphasis on quality.

  Evaluation of Service Performed:   (3) attempts on slide = worse then ever before (scratching exterior paint), Satellite still not working, curtain rod is on order (3 weeks and counting), rewired radio and still doing the same, heat pump fan still not working properly, no problem found on other items or could not duplicate problem.
They had my unit for three weeks last month and fixed 3 out of 12 items and asked if I would leave again (I refused and took it home). Workhorse items are being taken care of else where and Winnebago items are being referred to another dealer. Rolling Hills claims they will still turn in claims against my warranty even though they did NOT fix them. I purchased my $120k unit from Rolling Hills in Feb and have not received good service at all.
