I rented out my RV through a website for private owners to make a little extra cash. A renter took it from Kentucky headed to Yellowstone. The RV has 55,000 miles on it and had already been to Mrytle Beach and Florida that summer with no issues. The renters made it to just outside Yellowstone when the RV started to lose power going up hills. The girl that rented it drove it into his shop. Guess what the owner sees when a female pulled in with a rented RV and the owner over 1000 miles away. Dollar signs!!! He told the girl a new pump would be $800 for the part and labor to install it would be about $1500 all together. This RV has a Ford V10 chassis and I just had my fuel pump replaced on my rusted F250 for $650. I called the owner and he gave me his BS about how much the original Ford part costs, but he changed the same pump cost to $500 when I talked to him. He still told me the total would be about $1500. My renters were stranded and I had no choice so I told him to fix it. 3 days later he called and said the RV was finished and my total was $2,617.14. I was floored. He said he spent 12 hours on the RV because "some of the bolts were rusted and required extra time" at the rate of $135/hr. He also gave me more BS about having to work around the leveling jacks. Thats false! Long story short, this professional RV mechanic shop had to spend an extra $1100 on my account maneuvering rusted bolts. I have never changed out a fuel pump before, but I bet I can do it in less than 12 hours! Besides all this, he never called me to tell me his educated guess of an estimate was way off. He knew there was nothing I could do about it but take it up the tailpipe and just pay the bill. My very expensive lesson here was that I am not allowing anyone to rent my RV long distance because I will not put myself in this same situation and be at the mercy of another crooked RV repair man.
