The Bronco visits the Santee Lake Service Center…

Jim says:

My friends Bob and Judy, with whom I am currently visiting, moved to this area in 1999. I first visited them here in 2000. At that time I was needing some work done on my other motorhome and Bronco and asked if they knew of a good local garage. They sent me to the Santee Lake Service Center about 10 miles away. After that experience I found the garage owner/mechanics to be honest, talented mechanical services at a fair price. The experience was once again repeated when I passed through this area in 2003, 2007 and again yesterday

Picture

I took my new-to-me 1986 Ford Bronco II (which I purchased last August in Washington State) and had them do the following work…
* replace valve cover gaskets ( not an easy job with all the air-conditioning stuff in the way),
* replace hoses and thermostat in the cooling system,
* lube the speedometer cable, and
* do a general tune-up.

It took seven hours and with parts and labor, my bill was a very respectable $412. I highly recommend them to you. if you are ever in this area…here’s how to find them…
Santee Lake Service Center, Inc.
Exit 98, Interstate Highway 95
Santee, South Carolina

Frank Hughes – Owner

The motorhome and Bronco are both mechanical/electrical devices that wear out with use and have to be maintained occasionally. I prefer to do my preventative maintenance in a garage ahead of time rather than breaking down on the road.

Today I take the motorhome there and they will try to fix my valve stem/extension problem I wrote about last week.
