Default Additional Info On J & R Repair

I received an email from Rob giving me their website. Rob is the son-in-law of Greg Stanley. It is JR REPAIR. They are now the exclusive distributor for the HiLo cables and are working on getting other HiLo parts. Just like the old days when Greg ran the business, the dealers will be getting their parts from the new J & R Trailer Repair. Just passing this info on to the forum.

That's great info. Thank you. I was a bit concerned about my trailer's future with the factory shutting down. Thanks to the info on this site, I am getting a spare set of cables and pulleys from the factory's parts department as a just in case kind of thing. Now, with your info about J&R Repair, my mind is at ease.

Default Just spoke to Rob...

Because Greg (Rob's father-in-law who passed away 8 months ago) had no WILL, Rob and Jim have been trying to move the court forward so they could restart the business. Recently this was accomplished. They have a good inventory of parts (that they own), and handle any type of repair -- both large and small. I would not expect them to provide the kind of telephone support we had received from Greg, as he was representing the Factory in that regard. Rob and Jim are in business to make a living doing HI-LO repairs/parts/upgrades, so complex problems and questions are best handled in this forum !

They are also looking into purchasing some of the heavy equipment at the factory -- like an extrusion device that forms the Aluminum skirting. Lets hope they can get some of the custom equipment that is required to make the unique parts.

I will be getting some electronic information from ROB as well, and I will post it as soon as I receive it.

------------------------

On another note -- apparently the HI-LO factory has been in financial distress for quite some time. I heard from one source that they accumulated nearly 1 million dollars of debt ! Given the amount owed, I would be suprised to see anything restart. However, miracles do happen ! One interested party wanted to file Chapter 11 to eliminate the debt, and re-open as a new company. Another plan I heard suggested it would be a factory-direct operation, and there would be no dealers.

Apparently you can begin ordering parts from J&R immediately, and they are ready to service your unit !

I called and spoke with Rob at J&R today. Seems like a good guy. He quoted me on the cables for my rig and he informed me that they are trying to fill up their off-season repair schedules so they are offering some discounts for work scheduled during that time.

I have had several e-mails from J&R repair they were quite helpful. But living 800 miles from their shop makes it hard to have them solve my paneling problem, I live in Minnesota. Does anyone closer do the same type of work. I am glad to know that there is still parts availabe. Now to find a closer repair shop.
