  Date of Service:   2/1/2016
  Work Done on:   5th Wheel Trailer
  Service Performed:   Feb 4 the coach as delivered to the dealership
from a dealer in Washington state. Was told the
delivery guy failed to properly secure the table
top damaging it and the door trim on the sliding
glass door frame, the LED strip on the driver
side front end cap had 4 diodes not working
and there were diodes not working in the LED
strip above the master bed. The TV in the living
area was missing so they took a VIZIO smart
TV out of the 388 on the lot and installed it.
These issues were found in the delivery of the
coach and on the pre-delivery inspection. The
guy in charge of my coach at this time was named

Feb 9 he called and said the coach was ready
for pick up. On that day we did the PDI and he
showed the table and LED Strips were on
order. We found some other little things that he
corrected instantly.

April 12 we took it in for warranty work and for
the parts on order to be replaced and to have
other things fixed we discovered on our
camping trips. Was told they'd start on it right

April 18 they started working on items, told this
by Grand Design in customer service.

April 19/20 called to get status update and was
told "all preauthorization paperwork submitted
to Grand Design. This could take a while to get

Week of May 16 called for updates but got
answering machine for service tech in charge of
my coach and left multiple messages. Calls
never returned

May 23 called for update. This is when I was
told "still waiting on Grand Design to authorize the repairs
and then we have to resubmit preauthorization
paperwork to remove and replace each part
individually." This is when my BS detector
started going off.

Read later that day in the forums about Grand Design
having a 24 hour policy to approve or deny
preauthorization paperwork..

Called Grand Design and talked to Brad smith and this is
when I found out NOTHING had been
submitted. He gave me some good info and
offered to call the dealership. I said I'll call and
try to take care of it myself . He said to call if I
was still experiencing less than satisfactory

Called the dealership back and talked to this
service tech and asked "can you tell me what
day the paperwork was submitted?" Response I
got "uh you know I don't have that paperwork in
front of me. Let me get that info and I'll call you
right back." I told him he didn't need to call me
back because I had all that info.. He started
blaming the ladies in the warranty office, Grand Design
and started backpedaling trying to not take

May 24 called Brad at Grand Design and he stated he got
some (5 of 10) preauthorization paperwork
(submitted at like 5pm) and approved them
right away.

May 30/31 called service tech for updates and
left messages, called never returned

June 2 called for updates and talked to a
different service tech(didn't ask for name. He
said parts were on order but didn't know what
was on order or the shipping status.

June 3 called Brad at Grand Design to verify parts were
on order, because I didn't believe the info given
to me from the service tech, and he did verify
parts were on order. Asked how things were
going and filled him in, phone calls not being
returned, never getting a straight answer etc.
Said he knew a person at my dealership and he
would contact them to see what was going on.

June 3 got a call from this lady whom is now in
charge of my coach, supposedly, and filled her
in on the events. She stated she would make
my coach a priority.

June 13, received email from service tech
stating they sent pictures to Grand Design for repair of
leaking axle seals.

June 28, called for update and was told the
axles were done and were waiting in the LED
light strip above the bed to be installed. Was
asked if I wanted the coach back for the 4th of
July weekend and if I did they would make it a
priority. Said no because I had to work.

July 5. Called for an estimated time of
completion for pick up. Was told authorization
for the axle repair "parts still needed to be
ordered and work would begin when they had
time". Asked why I was told axles were done
when parts were not ordered? No answer could
be given.

July 6. Was given contact info for Emily Stahley
at LCI to verify status on parts/ authorization.
She was able to verify authorization was
approved on June 13 by LCI but looked like
parts had NOT been ordered. If parts were not
ordered she would request to have the parts
sent overnight.

July 7. Contacted by Emily Stated the parts
were sent in 2 boxes and should be delivered
no later than 3pm. Contacted dealership and
asked about status was told "still working on it."
When asked why parts were not on order when
the authorization was approved in June 13. I
was told "We went and got parts from a local
business." Instructed to have parts removed
and install parts sent by LCI for warranty

July 13. Received call that they damaged driver
side front cap by hitting it with another coach.
Went and looked at it and found damage on
passenger side front cap that I was not told
about. Talked with Joe, the body guy, who will
repair the damaged spots and should have
done by end of the month. The service guy who
has been in charge of my coach promptly left
work early when he knew I was coming to see
the damage in person.

July 19. Received call from Service tech that all
repairs have been completed and ready to pick
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   Work done was done to my satisfaction. Work
done to repair damages on the front cap was
done very good and can't tell there was any
damage done.
  Value of Service:   Poor
  Quality of Service:   Poor
  Date of Service:   10/10/2014
  Company Contact:   Jason
  Work Done on:   Class A - Gasoline
  Service Performed:   Diagnose generator starting but not putting out electricity. Just a FYI for some with problems with their generator. In the last month I've bought a new to
me RV a 30ft 1999 Sea Breeze with 60000 miles on it.Everything worked the previous owners had everything checked out all service work everything tested
all oils changed Perfect !! A week after getting the RV wife cleaning up inside so she was running the generator and the air. She worked both Saturday and
Sunday cleaning all the little things that women can find to clean. Both days she ran the air and the generator. Monday she goes out and starts the
generator. Generator start right up but is putting out nothing.

I test as little as I know. Trip breakers replace the 1 fuse. Nothing helps. I come on RV.net.LOTS and lots of people trying to walk me through what to do.
All is either above my working knowledge or I don't have the equipment. (Thanks Everyone!) Everyone one warns me DONT go to a RV dealer to get
repaired most say they will RAPE up. I went to Paul Evert in Fresno Ca. No choice couldn't find anyone else that would work on RV generators. Evert wants
125.00 to tell me whats wrong with the generator and then repairs. I agree with the 125.00 they keep the RV a week because they are so backed up. A
week later they call me and tell me they need to remove the generator to bench test and its an additional 350.00. Plus whatever repairs. I asked what the
original 125.00 was for if they where going to the price to an additional 350.00 so now it would be 425.00 to diagnose whats wrong. The sales man told
me with a generator this old and with this few hours (184) he would suggest I buy a new generator instead. He said when they are this old and this low
hours they usually 86 them for new.

I told Paul Evert to wrap it up and I'd take it home with me. I had a guy I work with tell me of a place that works on generators and that he really liked the
guy. Said at his previous job they had used this guy on several of their generators and he always came through! The place is Bishop Equipment the guys
name is Randy Bishop he is the owner. Called him on monday took the RV in on Thursday. He called me and told me it was ready on Thursday afternoon at
330. Bad regulator. 245.00 When I got home I called Paul Evert. Let the know it was a regulator and that the mechanic didn't have to pull the generator out
to bench test it he did it from the ground and had it ready for me in less that 3 hours at 245.00 That I would spread the word what a worthless bunch of
mechanics they have.

By the way Bishops garage only works on generators he is certified in all makes and models. So if your generator needs work and you're in this area I highly
recommend Bishop Equipment for ALL your generator needs. Just thought someone here would like to know.
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   Looks like nothing was done by Evert? They couldn't figure it out without more money.

  Work Done on:   Class C
  Service Performed:   Install leveling jacks.
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   Terrible experience bought RV in June of 2011, took eight months to get all parts installed and operational. one month later they broke used coach
for most of a year without the jacks being usable because I had to take it to Paul Everts which is a long way from where I live. Returned for repairs in
Feb 2013. Did not complete repairs for 2 months had to drive four hours to pick it up. Tested jacks before leaving for home and they would not
operate properly. Had to leave coach drove four hours one way for nothing. I hate this place and would never go back if at all possible!

  Date of Service:   2/10/2012
  Work Done on:   Class A - Diesel
  Service Performed:   Purchased October 2011, gave them 17 days to get all the small stuff fixed. Went the 17th not a thing was done, so could not take it. Took back in December so it would have dash heater fixed, can't fix, we took it on our December vacation. Had several small issues: ice maker doesn't work, bath heater won't shut off. Dash heater blows cold air. Table had a bad scratch. Took back in February after vacation. Just got it back last week 3/7/2012 ice maker still does not work, still can't figure out the front dash heater, bathroom heater won't shut off doesn't work. Toilet was used and not flushed. The urine smell was horrible. Took lots of scrubbing to get the stain out of the toilet, do not know how long it was in there. Were told they could not take it out for the final test drive because it was to low on fuel. When we took it in it had over a 1/4 tank. So we contacted Monaco and they said they would have authorized fuel for it had they known. We are taking it there as soon as we can, to Coburg, and hopefully they can help us. They have tried over the phone with the Paul Evert service but they can't fix what issues we have. Salesman has not returned my last weeks message, sooo very frustrated.

  Work Done on:   Class A - Gasoline
  Service Performed:   Warranty Work performed with several major items and many minor items on 2010 Monaco Monarch. Monaco ended up to be extremely helpful coordinating the repairs with Paul Evert's RV. In the beginning, wanted to return the motor home and start over. Both Monaco and Paul Evert's said to go through the warranty process and we would not be disappointed and that was the case in the end.
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   All of the service staff for both Paul Evert's RV and Monaco, were always very helpful from the service managers, service writer and RV Technician. Followup by phone to coordinate pickup and delivery times, repair questions and clarifications. If we ever are in the market for another motor home we would certainly start with Paul Evert's RV and Monaco.

  Date of Service:   11/20/2009
  Work Done on:   Class A - Diesel
  Service Performed:   We purchased a used motor home. The RV had a few problems they were supposed to correct. The generator would not run for more than a few minutes. They traced the problem to the Trace RC7/GS (inverter control with automatic generator start). We later noticed they solved the problem by installing a RC7 controller, which does not have the generator start feature.

The salesman promised to replace the stained windshield drapes. Instead he took them home and washed them in his washer & dryer.

The motor home was ready for delivery over a month past the promised date.
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   They are very efficient when selling an RV, but the service department takes way too long and tries to get by as cheaply as possible at the expense of customer satisfaction.

  Service Performed:   I purchased this coach new in '07. What a nightmare, fFor the first year the service department had it more than I did. They would promise work to be done and 2 months later I might get the coach back. And, if I did get the coach back, it was dirty, old parts laying all over the coach, grease on the carpet, it was really bad. Here are a list of items that were either fixed by the service department or I became frustrated and fixed them myself or they still don't work to this day. The back up camera only works when it wants to. They ordered a new dash camera and 3 months later it was installed but it still doesn't work. The refrigerator door falls completely off when it wants to. The front curtains had grease on them when I bought it and I took it back to be repaired along with many other things they never cleaned them. The windshield wipers didn't work along with the dash heater. the speedometer is not illuminated properly, the desk on the front dash board was broke the day we bought and it is still broken. I have a piece of cardboard pried between the dash and the desk to keep it from hitting the knees of the person sitting in the front seat. The automatic leveling system does not work properly. You can be driving down the road and the system starts sounding an alarm it scared me to death the first time it happened now we are used to it. The bathroom ceiling leaks around the light fixture. The main fuse box had to be completely rewired. The air-horn now only works when it feels like it along with the radio. The chrome has rust on it on the mirrors and outside door handle. The entry door step has had to be replaced and the screen door and inside vinyl covering on the back of the main entry door had to be replaced due to fading that they tried to blame me for. Keep in mind the coach was less than 3 months old when I complained about the door and it was winter time. We had not even camped in it yet. The service department is horrible. I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND ANYONE PURCHASING ANYTHING FROM PAUL EVERT'S RV. I understand no one is perfect. But the service is beyond horrible.
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   Work done was less than adequate. These problems I mentioned above still are not repaired. They put me off until the warranty ran out. So now I am stuck with repairing them out of my pocket. SOMEONE SHOULD HOLD THIS COMPANY ACCOUNTABLE. DON'T BUY FROM THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  Date of Service:   11/1/2006
  Work Done on:   Class A - Gasoline
  Service Performed:   Repair damage resulting from accident in the Fresno area.
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   The motorhome was towed to Paul Everts on July 11th 2006.
We were told the repairs would take 2 months give or take a week or two. The RV was returned to us on November 22, over four months later. This was the worst customer service I have ever experienced.

First the RV was not touched for 1 month because we were told our service representative went on a medical leave of absence.

There were extensive delays because parts that we thought to be ordered we later found not to have been ordered. The service manager and the service representative sometimes told us conflicting update information in the same day. The coach was at local frame straightened shop for 6 weeks and we were being told the coach would be returned from that shop "next week" for four weeks in a row.

So now we have the coach back and the brand new Generator does not run, all of our sewer accessories are missing, the power cord is damaged, the inside of the RV was filthy after we were told the RV had been cleaned inside and out. There is damage to an inside cabinet that was not repaired.
I would not recommend Paul Everts RV as it appears to be a poorly run operation.

  Work Done on:   Class A - Diesel
  Service Performed:   1. Exchange sofa bed as part of purchase. 2. Install sun shades as part of purchase. 3. Minor adjustment on bedroom slide (warranty). 4. Replace rear A/C (warranty) 5. Tank monitor not reading grey tank (warranty).
  Evaluation of Service Performed:   Appointment made to do warranty work and install purchased options. Service writer said work would be done in one day. Arrived Sunday night and in line Monday at 7:00AM. Service writer reviewed items and asked how many days I would be staying. Told him one and reminded him that he said he could do all repairs in one day. He said Monaco would take at least three days to approve warranty work. (The warranty work was all discovered during PDI a month earlier, why wasn't it already approved). Sat in waiting room until 6:00PM to find out that my coach was not done and had been moved back to the overnight campsite at 4:00PM. It took them the entire day to install sofa only. I had to re-install it myself that evening to make it fit correctly.

Day two....they promised I would be out by 11:00AM. Noon, they still had not started on my coach. Acting service manager apparently overwhelmed and then tried to convince me that sofa was an all day job. I told him that I had removed and correctly installed in less than 30 minutes.

Finally, I asked to speak to owner Paul Evert. He met with me and reviewed problems with my coach. We walked to repair area to see techs installing sun shades. He asked them how much longer. They told him 30 minutes. I asked if they had replaced A/C unit yet. They were all puzzled and asked, "what A/C unit". I give Mr. Evert credit for ordering them to use as many techs as needed to get my coach finished.

When I checked out at the service area, a mechanic (not mine) made a comment about how some whiny people can get other mechanics pulled off of jobs. This guy was a jerk and I told him so.

There were others in the waiting room who had the same complaints. One couple (full timers) had been there a MONTH and had the same service writer that I had.

I bought the coach from Paul Evert because it was a discontinued model and the only one left in the state. The salesman treated me fairly and handled my sale expertly. The service department was the worst I've ever seen and will never do business with the dealership again.
