Thanks to Pacbrake we discovered family owned and operated, Redlands Truck and RV. We were very impressed with this facility, the technicians, and the owners. Redlands has been around for over 40 years and is owned by Keith and Karen Shomaker, who bought the company from their parents. Keith and Karen share a passion to do what’s right and to take care of the customer and both of those traits were learned from their parents, Larry and Judy. Their father Larry was an Aerospace Engineer with Lockheed Corporation. Redlands Truck Service almost didn’t happen because due to an impending transfer, it was evident to both Larry and Judy that they would have to uproot the family in order to follow Lockheed back east. Instead they decided to quit the corporate world and look locally for an opportunity. As risky as it was with three young kids and no certain future, he and his wife Judy found Redlands Truck Service for sale and bought it in order to keep the family of five local.
The company is well known for its work on RVs, pickup trucks and commercial vehicles. We can certainly tell you that business is bumping at their shop. Keith and Karen don’t just work at their shop, they do outreach to customers and potential customers at shows, events and other happenings. They like to conduct seminars to educate people about RVs and trucks. They talk about subjects such as tires, service, hauling and towing laws, new products, essential but often overlooked products, etc. We learned more about heavy duty tires in our time there then we even knew that there was to know.
If you spend any time at Redlands’ shop, you’ll see that they mean it when they say they focus on the customer. They enjoy talking to customers, sharing knowledge about RVs and trucks and making sure that their vehicles are serviced correctly.
Keith confirmed to us that customers using the Pacbrake LoadLeash P-67 engine brake really do see about a 300% increase in the service life of their brake pads and rotors. He also told us that, like us, other LoadLeash customers report feeling safer and being able to keep their rigs under better control. We’re glad we got to know the folks at Redlands Truck and RV and if you ever need service in their area, they’re worth checking into.
