I gotta go on record here as saying, "THat is a pretty crappy way to treat customers!"

There was ample time to move these units to "higher ground"...and they didn't....If my unit was in there and was destroyed, I would be "plenty hacked"...

While acts of god "happen", It's not like they didn't know what was coming....this destruction was preventable......

I notice that MIke got his "to higher ground".....No personal smack meant, MIke...I'd have moved mine as well....

I guess some could be salvageable. I have not had the time to inspect any that have been totaled. We have serviced the brakes and bearings on some that just had the axles partially submerged. There are some motorhomes that were totaled because the drive train and compartments were submerged. I suppose, that if completely serviced, components such as control boards, relays, hydronic heating and other equipment damaged were replaced along with redoing all compartment carpeting, one could salvage these units. Of coarse the title will reflect that it is a salvage unit.

That is really a shame. We were going through the area when the storm was passing through. I 24 east was flooded beyond belief just north or there. We were glad to make it through okay. Hopefully everyone who had rigs there were or are being taken care of.

I wonder if you have Govt flood insurance on your RV like you do your home?

Boy this has me thinking. If your house floods it's an act of God. Ins won't pay unless you have the Gov flood insurance.

I recently saw an article in an auto industry trade journal that stated that Car Fax is inaccurate over half the time. Worse than that, for the most severe accidents (those in which the vehicle was almost totaled), no Car Fax form is filled out at all because the parties involved know that it will vastly depreciate the future selling price. I guess it's still "buyer beware".

"The parties involved" have no say in the information Carfax uses. Carfax uses public data from motor vehicle bureaus, vehicle manufacturers, and service facilities. Private parties do not have a form to submit to Carfax. When a vehicle is totaled, a salvage title is issued by most states, and that is what Carfax will report. If the person owning a flood damaged vehicle does not make an insurance claim, cleans up the vehicle, and sells it, that would be the only way around Carfax finding out about flood damage. It is extremely difficult to clean a vehicle that has been in a flood to the point that flood damage is undetectable, but it has been tried. Vehicles registered in Louisiana and Mississippi get extra attention due to possible flood damage from Katrina.
