Hey, I think it is that area. About 4 weeks ago when we were visiting our son and family in Torrance, a tree jumped out from in front of their house an tore my patio awning off. The thing is, I didn't do anything to it to make it to deserve that. Next time I go down there I will be armed with a chain saw and I will get even.
Best of luck on fixing your damage. If you need help, we live in the Sac area too. Send me a note.

Tureblood, think about and remember all of the 'good' things that you did for the MIL. Now on to the MH, just go back and remember your days driving military vehicles. PMCS and ground guides!!!!! They really do help with the driving chores. As far as the damage goes, man up and tell the DW and the insurance people. You never know, but you might end up on one of those 'you are not going to believe this' letters that the insurance companies put out. Besides all of us, at one point or another do things that we regret later. Any MH owner that has been on the road for any length of time, has horror stories about things that we 'wish' that we could forget. Another way to look at it is that you have done your share of 'oops' and now have them out of the way. Hopefully it will be 'smooth' sailing for a while.
Travel safe and have fun!!!

Insurance nightmare.

I'm now being told that I have to drive almost 400 miles back to LA to show them what happened.(?) they are trying to say all the damage was pre-existing, really?. Has any one ever had that problem with Good Sam RV insurance? Yes it's a 2001, it's not new!

My wife is a insurance defense attorney. The last thing I would do is be unethical when dealing with a insurance company. The adjuster sent an email to the shop owner that was classic libal. Call me a dumb ass who should not have gotten himself in that mess, but don't accuse me of lying!!!

Any ideas for RV insurance ? I have Geico for my car, I'm also eligible for USAA insurance do they have RV Insurance? What about AAA? At this point I'm ready to give Good Sam the boot! Good Sam was my roadside service that told me to drive home on 3 rear tire because they didn't have the right size lug wrench to put my spare on.

Ok, I'm done venting! This whole RV thing is a pain in the ass! When does the fun start? If this were a movie, I'd be on the red carpet. But then again it's so horrible it's almost funny! Almost!

My Condolences on your loss. It sounds like your MIL was greatly loved and had a good sense of humor. We are picking up our very first coach next week. A 45 foot Entegra Aspire. Neither of us has ever driven a motor home however, I did drive bigs rigs pulling 45 ft trailers back in the early 80's. That would be about 30 years ago. Any of this starting to sound familiar? We will be on the look out for those stinking, sneaky ninja trees. Also, appreciate the feedback on Good Sam insurance. We are shopping for insurance companies as I type and now I can scratch Good Sam off the list. Wish us luck and same to you!

Sorry to hear of your insurance hassles. Having to take the coach to LA to prove damage sounds ridiculous. I thought adjusters came out to see the vehicle vs the other way around.
BTW, USAA doesn't offer RV insurance directly. They have an arrangement through Progressive. That's what I have. It hasn't been bad so far, except that the increase sucked the life out of me when I upgraded from a 99 Winnebago DP to a 07 Monaco. When you deal with Progressive, they pass you off to an agent who "specializes" in USAA customers. I guess that's good, at least it makes me "feel" I am getting good treatment.
