National RV Parts At Temecula Valley RV Center - Owners of National RV motorhomes in need of hard-to-locate parts for their coach may be able to find the replacements at Temecula Valley RV Center in Murrieta, California. Temecula Valley RV Center owner Erik Kitley said he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to acquire a sizable quantity of National RV parts during the manufacturer’s liquidation auction following its closure in 2008.

Besides stocking a wide range of motorhome parts and RV appliances, the company’s service department handles a variety of maintenance, repair, body and paint, and installation work on all brands of Type A, B, and C motorhomes. And for those whose repair work may take more than a day, full hookups are available for overnight stays. The facility also has a secured storage lot for motorhomes, trailers, and boats, along with a host of cleaning and preventive maintenance services.
