Bicycle scrapes sides of my MH

Found scrape marks, thru paint on my cargo door, and dented. Bycycle handle bar height. The MH had perfect paint untill now. My deductable is $1000 bucks.

And of course it's the cargo door by the enterance door where I can see it every time I enter the MH

To the side of me are 2 or 3 mexican famlies living in one house with 10 or or 12 kids; they all have bycycles. Their driveway is next to my MH.

ALL OF A SUDDEN NO ONE SPEAKS OR UNDERSTANDS ENGLISH over there.

They drive up and down the drive way and on everybody eleses driveway pads. I don't have pictures of the kid hitting my MH. One of the kids bikes matches the height of the scratches and dents, perfectly.

I am really pissed. Some people may think I'm making a big deal out of this. I don't have the money to fix it. Yeah I know, that's life.

Not much I can do except talk to the parents. Oh I forgot!. They don't understand English anymore but know how to cash the checks.

What's NEW!!!!!!!

Maybe a call to the police, even if they don't do anything will have them understanding English momentarily...

As stated above, call police. Then, up come the jacks and away you go. You've spent way too much money (and, now, heartache) to stay there. Can you stay there knowing (suspecting) what tomorrow brings? The beauty of these things: up come the jacks and away you go.

We are renting the house and can't break the lease till May. And trying to find a house to rent around here is extreamly hard. If I was single I would be gone in a heart beat. Perhaps I will seek advice from the police.
Thanks

Perhaps the landlord is good for it. No, I probably don't mean that literally but it may help in lease negotiations. Cost of repairs may exceed the cost of the lease. Home school? Up come the jacks... Just sayin'.

I'm sure they are not going to admit it and I dont think the police will do anything. Maybe code enforcement or I.N.S. Maybe you can break your lease being its not a save place.

Two families, one house, ten or twelve kids. If this town is coded for single families you may get in touch with code inforcement. That may solve part of your problem, but------have you ever had your tires slashed? If one family has to move be prepaired to replace some tires.

Sad to say but no one is going to do nothing to make you hole but your own insurance. There will be no investigation even if you had a witness.Bottom line (you can't get blood out of a rock). I've seen this kind of stuff happen enough times.I truly feel for you.

Two comments: I'll add my voice to the buzz the fuzz folks, Let them know the folks next door speak Mexican though.

Second: True story: One of my friends used to be the smallest trooper in the Michigan State Police (They have one smaller now,, Just one, he's #2) Well, when troopers stopped a bunch of migrant workers the folks tried the old "no comprendo" bit, claiming to not speak english. So they radiowed back to the post for a little backup.. (The joke is that this trooper being the "littlest" in the department, was what they sent, the fact is it was he, specifically, who was requested, you see, He is Mexician and speaks the language).

He approached the car and in English requested driver's license, Registration and proof of insurance. They gave him the "No comprendo" bit.

He replied "Comprendo Carsaro" (NOTE: I do not know spanish spelling so apologies if I got it wrong).

They understood Jail just fine, And suddenly recalled they spoke English as well.

My friend, can speak either language, He is very good at American English, He's better at Mexican as that was his first language.
