Calling all RV club members… Rally at Leale’s!

The Leale’s RV family invites all RV clubs to visit our facility, take a tour, and share valuable knowledge. We regularly host RV rallies for members of individual clubs. In fact, our most recent rallies were held on January 18th and February 22nd, and was spectacular! At our rallies, club members bring in their coaches and receive important services and information.


  • weigh the coaches.
  • have a station where batteries are checked.
  • give demonstrations on maintenance that is crucial for your RV.
  • give group members a VIP tour of our facility.
  • have one-on-one question and answer sessions with our certified technicians.

A rally at Leale’s is a fun and valuable experience. It includes an exciting raffle, wonderful prizes, and a delicious lunch. We would love to have your club/group be our honored guest at one of our special events.

If you are an RV club member and are interested in a rally at Leale’s, please contact Babette Shelton (408) 286-5353.

Tips from our technicians

Always take a few moments to do your own safety check on your RV before you leave for a trip.

Here is a short “walk around” checklist our technicians recommend:

  • Make sure that all your power cords are disconnected from outlets..
  • Is there anything underneath your coach that you would run over when it’s moved?.
  • Are all of your jacks retracted?.
  • Make sure your antenna is down..
  • Check all the fluid levels..
  • Check your batteries. A good thing for RV owners to have is a voltmeter so you can easily check them to make sure they’re charging properly.

And now……a word from our customers

"Over the past 3 years we have had 2 different RVs serviced by Leale’s, a Four Winds and Tiffin. Their service advisors have always been highly professional, the service provided is exceptional and I have full confidence in their technical abilities to resolve any problem. Chris, our service advisor, researched our issue and checked in with us during the service to confirm costs and other information. Really nice guy. Our coach runs great, and I feel safe. This last visit, we had our coach washed, and it was the best wash we have had. I highly recommend them"
