I had thought of doing that. There's a place around the corner, certainly a lot closer than where the RV place is. They do repairs and I note that the guys who work there have RVs...so even better.

We "cleaned up" the scratch and it doesn't look bad at all. There is one little indent and a few places where the paint was nicked up a bit.

I don't think it will take much, nor cost much to put it right.

I put my first scratch on the passenger rear corner. I was trying to snuggle up to the curb in front of our stick home in preparation for packing. Backed into our mailbox and put a nice 10" scratch on the corner. It's still there after two years. Ugly, but then again, part of the program.

Maybe we should just remove all the mail boxes in the world!

I guess I'm not alone. My rig is 5 months old and I damaged my roof with a low tree branch. I still can't believe how much the repair cost. I had to use my insurance to cover the cost and now I'm expecting to see my insurance rates increase. If there's any silver lining to my accident, it's that now I'm super aware of low tree branches.

I got the Du Pont paint codes for my coach, went to a local Du Pont dealer and he made me four small bottles of touch up. Now I can fix the little dings myself. BTW, $30 for four colors.

You have survived one of God's greatest tests... a scrape on the RV is a speck of dust on a vast desert of life's experiences.

Enjoy life daily, love like you never been hurt, drive like you are only out to enjoy the trip, and stop as often as the destination allows to smell each and every rose.

Tomorrow may bring greater challenges, lesser rewards, but I believe just having tomorrow is worth the trip. Make the best of it and smile if a stranger asks "What happened there ?" I usually simply say "just another blip on the radar of life!"

I do NOT suffer from mental illness, but rather enjoy it daily !

Had an accident did $14,000 damage; had it repaired; new painted parts didn't match old painted parts; really bothered me for about six months, now I hardly even notice it.

Time will heal your wound.
