Was given a couple auto shop recommendations in the area around the CG I'm wintering at..., made a couple of calls, stopped by three of them, and picked one. Prices ranged from $400 to $700.

The shop I went with quoted $520, the hydroboost is a remanufactured unit and comes with a lifetime guarantee ($320 material/$200 labor). A brand new unit doesn't come with a life-time guarantee.... go figure.

I'd probably tackle the project myself at my home base because I have a back-up vehicle to use and would be able to work in my garage.

I take the TV in Monday AM for the hydroboost R&R...., will report back on the outcome.

Bob

nambarc says to tie a plastic bag around it to catch the leaking oil and recycle it and save the 500 bucks. Might work.

Thread follow-up.

I had my scheduled hydroboost replaced this morning and all went well. The original estimate was $520.00, but out-the-door this morning the total came to $365.00..., same parts were installed as quoted. Parts/Labor has a 24 Months/24,000 Mile warranty, and Life Time on parts (via NAPA Autocare Nationwide Warranty Center).

TV braking initiates sooner when applying brake pedal, and has a notable firmer feel......, and doesn't leak. Very pleased with the work performed by the auto shop.

If in the Kerrville/Ingram (Texas) area and in need of any type of auto repair, I recommend:

Moss Motors
99 Coronado Drive
Kerrville, Texas 78028

(830) 895-5858
