HWH Moscow, Iowa
Appointment next week for repairs at HWH in Moscow, Iowa.

A day's drive and then waiting for repairs then hopefully returning the next day.  For those of you who have been there, do you think that it is necessary to have a vehicle to drive while I...

It is not actually in Moscow.  It is just off the interstate. There really is nothing nearby and their waiting room is quite basic.  The Kum and Go station across the freeway usually has pretty good fuel prices. If you have a car you can drive up...

I'm scheduled for June 27.  We always take our tow vehicle.  We get there the night before. 

You can visit the Worlds Largest Truck Stop the I-80 TA.  They have a nice store, great food and a nice museum.  It's only about 20 minutes away on I80.

All the above are true.
HWH is the best! They only charge you for what it takes to fix the problem. not to figure out how to fix it.
You will love it when they drive you Foretravel on to the second story rack. Not for the faint of heart.

One thing to be aware of is they will likely find some air leaks in your system. They only repair leaks directly associated with the HWH system. They tag any other leaks with zip ties. You can ask the guy doing the leak inspection to show you all...

"You will love it when they drive you Foretravel on to the second story rack. Not for the faint of heart." They couldn't finish us up in one day, and had various parts in pieces, so we spent the night there. Interesting!

They did find quite a few...

This stuff has worked pretty well for me

But I still have leaks, a never ending quest.  You have to learn to live with a few.

We didn't want to stay in a motel with the dog, and begged to be allowed to sleep in our coach while the bladder was being replaced. The slide was out. BIG MISTAKE!!!!!!  Little did we know they run night shifts!!! All lights were on inside. Lots...

Once you meet Ashley Burkle (receptionist +) and Lon, you will know why HWH is such a great place to take your coach. They do everything to get you taken care of and at a fair price.
After our "turn" almost two years ago I still keep in touch.
An...

Question about a HWH factory visit.  We'd like to take our coach in this fall and just have them check out the system(s).  Will they do that even if you don't have a specific problem?  I'm sure there are some leaks, but at this point they are not...

Leak check on the rack was $49 a couple years ago.  add in a basic function test and it should be under $100.

They replaces a pin lock sensor for me two years ago, 1.5 hrs in and out the door. $90 + the sensor.

Yes,  they will check system for leaks and repair any HWH related leaks, and tag those leaks (such as brakes) that are not HWH related for repair by others.

Thanks everybody for the replies and good information.

I talked to Ashley today to confirm my appointment.  Likely repairs will not take all day.  I plan to hang around and observe the process.

I will report the results when I return next week.
