B&B trailers

Josh at B&B trailers goofed up a simple adjustment on my trailer's brakes and refused to warrantee their work.

Any recommendations on an electrician?

Okay, we're a little crazy to have a Duramax for a daily driver. But if we go off our meds, we might wind up in a Prius.

My neighbor Dennis owns Factory Electric. He has done some work for me here, and at our duplex. Good guy. Likes motorized things too!

So my plug is for the Trusty Wrench RV Doctor.

I've been wanting to convert my Motorhome for years to golf cart batteries, but the carriage underneath would only fit one 12v.

Paul stopped by and yanked the carriage out, took it to his shop, modded it to fit 2 new batteries, while still using the existing mounts. Had it all back together in no time. Great service, Thank you.

He stocks batteries too!

And yet another :thu2: for Paul!

Not only does he stock Dinosaur boards, he made time to do the install on short notice!

:thu: and another.
Forgot to mention the fine job on the new awnings for the class C. The old ones pretty much flaked apart when the Trusty Wrench removed them.

For a vinyl wrap, go to Vizual Assualt in West Richland. He was cheaper than everyone else and he does wraps for lots of different toys.

[quote="Don"]I've got to put a word in for Peter and Charlie with Armor Performance Coatings in Richland. They do powder coating and high heat coatings. Have a super nice shop, give great advice, are super easy to work with and produce a great product. They are growing, so please send some business their way. You won't be disappointed.

I give American transmission :thu2:

my DD dodge was having a shaking issue but only as certain speeds, they took it for a test drive and came back "it is doing it, but I have no idea what it is. its definitely not what I thought it would be doing" so they put it up on a lift and ran it. driver side rear axle shaft was bent, you could see the caliper sliding side to side. they took about an hour looking it all over, checking with tire on and off, ordered the parts and fixed it the next week, they didn't charge me for the hour of checking it all out.

Good to know about American Transmission. Been on the phone with them and went over once to talk about valve body and torque converter upgrades to my E4OD on my 97.

If anyone knows of a computer tech for the Jeep, I could use one. I'm having can-bus comm issues with my JKUR. :curse:

Full disclosure, It also has a 6.0 LS so it needs to be someone not afraid of conversions.

Looking for someone to install a front axle e-locker in my 2021 Ford F-150 Tremor. I would like to purchase the locker myself and pay someone for the install. Truck already has provisions for the switches (Ford up-fitter OEM).
