RV Services and Repairs

General Servicing

RVs of all types and ages need significant amounts of maintenance to stay in good driving shape. Examples of the things that require regular attention include your:

  •         Engine
  •         Brakes
  •         Suspension
  •         Wheels/tires, and
  •         Various fluids (e.g., engine oil, transmission fluid)

Farace’s Automotive provides point-by-point servicing for all makes and models of recreational vehicles. Four decades of experience make us your dependable experts.  

General Repairs

Every RV owner knows that the potential for breakdowns is a very real concern. Ongoing use also makes your vehicle susceptible to a variety of additional problems, including exterior damage to mirrors, windshields and body panels. When general repair issues arise, the last thing you want to worry about is finding reputable professionals who have experience working on your particular type of vehicle.

When you seek general repair assistance from the specialists at Farace’s Automotive, you can rest assured that your RV is receiving attention from the best in the business. Over the years, we’ve accumulated extensive experience working on vehicles from virtually every known manufacturer, including:

  •         Airstream
  •         Winnebago
  •         Custom Coach
  •         Coachmen
  •         Vulcan
  •         Roadtrek
  •         Dynamax, and
  •         Fleetwood

This deep expertise allows us to accurately diagnose and repair all issues that affect your engine or vehicle exterior. It also gives us the skills required to tackle all upgrade and remodeling projects.

Collision Repairs

With their size and heavy use of the nation’s highways and byways, RVs are significantly at-risk for involvement in various types of collisions. Some of these accidents lead to only minor or cosmetic vehicle damage. However, others may lead to major damage that leaves your vehicle completely inoperable. When any kind of collision occurs, worries about insurance coverage can add an unnecessary burden and potentially interfere with your ability to resolve the situation in a reasonable timeframe.

We do everything possible to help you recover from major and minor collisions and get your RV back on the road at the earliest possible date. We begin by providing you with top-notch repair services that quickly address issues such as:

  •         Window/skylight damage
  •         Roof damage
  •         Fiberglass/aluminum damage
  •         Paint damage, and
  •         Interior damage affecting materials and/or the vehicle structure

As a long-established RV accessory and part provider, we can easily obtain the items needed to perform all repairs and replacements.

In addition, our ongoing relationships with the RV industry’s major insurance carriers greatly simplify the process of receiving the full benefits of your policy’s coverage. A short list of those carriers includes Travelers, GEICO, Farmers Insurance, State Farm, Progressive, Allstate, AAA and GMC. In all cases, we provide equal levels of service for local RV owners and travelers just passing through the Orange County area.

Interior Repairs

Compared to cars and trucks, recreational vehicles have a much greater number of interior structures, systems and materials. Common examples here include:

  •         Plumbing systems
  •         Cabinets
  •         Appliances, and
  •         Electrical systems

RVs also typically have extensive carpeting and upholstery.

Unfortunately, all of these interior features are subject to damage, breakdowns and malfunctions. While you may be able to put up with some amount of inconvenience, eventually you’ll need to seek repair assistance in order to retain your vehicle’s usefulness and comfort. Whether dealing with minor or major interior issues, you can call on Farace’s Automotive for timely interior repairs. And when a simple repair won’t rectify the situation, we’ll perform a cost-effective replacement of the affected structure or system. In addition to addressing isolated issues, we can fully restore your RV’s interior with a comprehensive renovation.


Many people seek to reduce the initial cost of RV ownership by purchasing a pre-owned vehicle. Unfortunately, a substantial percentage of pre-owned RVs have unreported or underreported condition issues that drastically reduce their value and roadworthiness. That’s why you must have an objective third party perform a full inspection and point out all current and potential problems.

Let Farace’s Automotive ease your mind with a ground-up inspection that fully informs you of the condition of any RV. Our skilled personnel review every conceivable issue, both interior and exterior, and prepare a highly detailed final report. With this report in hand, you’ll have a true picture of the pros and cons of the vehicle you have under consideration.

Trailer Repairs

Travel trailers are basically recreational vehicles that require towing to move from place to place. Therefore, it makes sense that many of the problems affecting these towed vehicles mimic the kinds of problems that occur in RVs. At Farace’s, our expertise in trailer repair is fully equal to our expertise in RV repair. In addition to addressing issues common in both types of vehicles, we focus on trailer-specific issues such as bearing damage and malfunctioning springs and axles. Training and experience allow us to work on models produced by any manufacturer.

Diesel Engine Repairs

Diesel engines are a common choice in recreational vehicles and motor homes. We’ve long been aware of this fact, and from the very beginning we’ve put an emphasis on services and repairs for this segment of the market. In fact, our master technicians can perform expert engine work on any light duty diesel truck, as well as any diesel-equipped RV.
