It's about a 10 hour drive for us, but we ususlly take it to the Jayco Factory Service Center for anything major.
Several reasons for this:
1. They don't have to get authorizations for the work.
2. They have the parts and special tools that they need.
3. The generally don't replace just a part (our toilet fill valve leaked, so they replaced the entire toilet).
4. The catch things that we didn't even know had a problem, and fix them. They found a pin hole leak in the black tank that we didn't know about, and replaced the entire black tank. Would a dealer do that....?
And, best of all, the last time we were there we went with a list, and let them have the unit for 4 days. While they had it we played tourist at the RV Museum, The Das Dutchman Essenhaus Restaurant, the Shipshewana Flea Market, the Rise'n Roll Bakery, etc.
You get the picture!
If you get in late you can stay right at the service center, the have two full hook-ups, and a dump station.
