Default Service in PNW

I have been making excuses for not having service done on my BB, but it's been 5,000 miles and 6 months since I bought it and the only thing that has been done is oil and filter changes for both the engine and tranny. It's now over 100,000 miles and it had no service records with it so I want to do pretty much all the items on the maintenance schedule. I'm in Vancouver now but will be heading south on I5 next Sunday and planning to stop in Seattle for a week and then continuing south.

Does anybody know of a good service center in the Pacific Northwest around Seattle, Portland, or points in-between that knows Wanderlodges? Or even something in Vancouver area for next week.

I have heard good things about Southern Oregon Diesel, southernoregondiesel.com. I think that there was a posting here a year ago or so about how good they were.

Richard,

Here is the link to Wanderlodge Owners Group > Good, Bad, and Ugly > Service Centers > Southern Oregon Diesel

It is listed under the same sub-forum that you posted this question in, there are a lot of service centers listed under Wanderlodge Owners Group > Good, Bad, and Ugly > Service Centers so if you or any other member are ever looking for a recommended good or bad place to get your 'Bird worked on, check out the list found there.

We have used Southern Oregon Diesel since the day we got the coach. They are located in Roseburg, OR right off the freeway. Dave does a lot of work for the city Fire Deparment, Fish and Game, other commercial businesses in the area. He provides parking if you need to stay overnight. Dave is a Bus Nut and knows his stuff. They are a great group of guys.
