[quote=6MISFITZ;521686]What a rough start to your camping season but glad to hear you and your DW are OK.

I hope your insurance company and body shop take care of the damage properly and have both of you at a campfire again soon....... and that the rest of your season is much smoother!



The insurance company wanted to total my motorhome and give me halve what its worth; boy did we go around about that. I said I would go to court to fight that; they then decided to pay to fix it.

After this is settled I believe I'll be looking for another insurance company.
I don't need this hassel. The sad part is I've been with this company for over 40 years. got both my cars and house insurance with them.

Gald to hear you wern't hurt...A few years back I had a good scare, I cam over a hill and everything was stopped. After stopping myself, behind an 18 wheeler, I looked in the rear view mirror to see another 18 wheel tanker barreling down on my rear end (and me with no where to go). The driver hit the median and as he passed by I saw the Flammabale Liquid placards on the side. He was in a steep median and I have no idea how he kept it on its wheels... He did though and all I got was a pair of soiled drawers...I'm sure he did too...

My greatest fear is getting ramed in the rear with an 18 wheeler; I think if I had been in your place; there wouldn't have been enough soap to clean my drawers.

Once when I was up in the mountians an 18 wheeler passed me on a very steep down grade; clouds of smoke comming from all his breaks; I have no idea how he got the rig stopped (this was at least a 10 mile downgrade) but I passed him about a mile down the grade when he was pulled off to the side; smoke just boiling up around his rig.
that driver was either very skilled or extremly lucky. ------or maybe both.

Lucky yes.. Skilled no.

P.s. The things that stop your vehicle are brakes, not breaks.

Glad to hear you kept your head upon your shoulders where it belongs. and all the other vital parts where they belong too.

Glad to hear you and wife are OK and yes, I have been saying seat belts save lives for a long long time.. Air bags, on the other hand, injure people.

Hope the idiot in the car has either deep pockets or a good insurance company and a wish for you to empty said pockets a bit.... What was he thinking "I want to pay those folks 1,000,000 each for reckless endangerment.. Sounds about right to me)

Happy legitation, since you will be on the winning side

Yes were ok; thanks; but as in the first post that I put, the vehicle that caused the accident, took off and they didn't catch him. the car that hit me was hit by the car that took off. he lost control when he was hit, then he hit me; not his fault at all. I hope the person that caused the accident does NOT sleep well at night.
