Trusted Skoolie Mechanic close to central NC?

I'm near Raleigh NC and I want to have my bus checked out and possibly get a lift pump upgrade and transmission cooler before I start spending money on it. Any leads on anything within a few hours would be appreciated

did you get to check into the advanced maitenance mechanics that i PMed you about?
the 2 close to me have no problems with looking any of my stuff over.
if there is ever anything i cant do or cant figure it out then it will go directly to them.

clarke power service has one near you in greensboro.
advanced maitenance has a place on citation drive in raleigh.
or my son or my son and i could drive up on a weekend and do the upgrades but it would have to be scheduled because we are always commited to something on the weekends if we are not on call for work.
he has more weekend time available than i do and is competent because i raised him up mechanicing.

Thanks for the leads:)

It looks like the ones in your area might be a better bet judging from the reviews online, maybe I'll have to do my first camping trip down your way once I'm tagged. I got the lift out by myself last week and I'm gonna pull the seats tomorrow. I saved both of those shops for future reference.
