Get ready to rally!

It's not too late to wish for snow!

Just before the big camping season starts, Leale’s likes to start things off by having rallies for current and new customers. Although we often hold rallies for specific RV clubs, we also welcome individual RVers. If you or your RV club would like to join a rally, just let us know.

What is a Leale's rally?

  • An opportunity to get together with other RVers to share stories, advice, ask questions
  • VIP tour of our facility
  • Sharing of important information
  • Maintenance demonstrations
  • Batteries checked
  • Coaches weighed
  • One-on-one question and answer sessions with our certified technicians
  • Terrific lunch
  • Raffle for “cool” RV stuff

Attention individual RVers!

Often our rallies are for specific RV clubs, but we also have rallies for individual RV owners.

Bring a fellow RVer. It’s a great way to learn about the “ins and outs” of RV ownership.

Keeping skills updated for the best possible service.

On-site training by Dometic

Dometic is a premier manufacturer of RV components, and most coaches have Dometic products such as refrigerators, air conditioners, and toilets. It’s our number one supplier for bathroom and kitchen appliances, and awnings. New products come out all the time, so we want our staff to always be up-to-date on these new products as well as the latest repair techniques.


The Leale’s philosophy is….”Repair, not replace.” So, keeping up with product information and the newest repair techniques is extremely important.

In early January, Leale’s hosted a Dometic training course to certify our techs and other staff members (including our service writers) in refrigerator repair, air conditioners, awnings, and toilets. The two-day presentation consisted of new product information, “tricks-of-the-trade”, as well as hands-on training. The staff was even given broken appliances and other items to fix.

Our large facility made it possible to include technicians from other local RV businesses from around the Bay Area. Participants found it extremely helpful to have a collaborative, shared learning experience. “Coming together to share ideas in such a learning experience is powerful, especially in this industry.” (Jim Leale)

Check out that roof!!

As we all continue to hope for more rain, it’s a good idea to make sure your RV is ready for it when it comes. Avoid costly repairs by making sure your roof is not leaking.


RV Camping Tip

Keep bugs at bay.

To keep mosquitoes and other bugs away, add bundles of sage to your campfire or fire pit.

Store those spices.

Since RVs are “living space” challenged, space-saving tips are always helpful. Use round stackable pill containers for your seasonings and toppings. They come in different sizes and take up very little room. They can also be easily labeled, are inexpensive, and can be found just about anywhere.

And now.... a word from our customers.

"We purchased our motor home in 2002, but did not discover Leale’s until 2008. The care and service provided by Leale’s far exceeds all other RV service centers we have used, and they have been our only RV service provider since that first experience. They not only perform the service extremely well, they keep me informed of the status during the service event. They are ready to log my RV in when I arrive (no waiting like other service centers) and the rig is ready to go when I arrive to pick it up. My service writer is Savio, and he is the best I have found anywhere. Thanks, Leale’s, I will be back."
