By chance, did you purchase the extended warranty through Wholesale Warranties? If so, I have read that people who bought warranties through them & had problems with a claim, Wholesale Warranties got involved & helped with having the denied claim flipped to approved.

Steve, I also found this info posted by SkyBoss back in 2012.... I am negotiating with GO RV for a Allegiance/CSI policy. Very impressed with GO RV's attention to my many questions. Here is a tidbit I learned...

If you purchase an extended warranty (I assume any brand) and the company is based in Illinois, be careful. Illinois it the only state with special rules that says such policies can NOT cover breakdowns caused by "normal wear and tear".

From the contract:
Section VI. EXCLUSIONS – WHAT THIS MOTOR HOME SERVICE AGREEMENT DOES NOT COVER- This section is amended to include the following:
(26) THE MECHANICAL BREAKDOWN OF ANY COVERED PART RESULTING FROM NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR.

Read the sample contracts very carefully and the pages covering state rules. Any special adjustments based on state laws are governed by the state of the broker you buy it from. In the case of GO RV my governing rules are based on TX rules and not my home state of IL.

Okay. The cows have come home to Texas ...

And, coming through Jackson, MS we roped a big ol' truck tire cap. It took out the left parking light, air scoop, and the brackets, muffler and tailpipe to the generator. Nice.

Some Ketchup here:

Don't know much about you yet, Mike, but take care. I've seen lots of folks keep on truckin' down the road when it looked like they wanted to just jump off a bridge. I've often wondered if it was a choice. Want me to come out there and cheer you up?

Di, I'm so glad you are through the surgery. It's always good to get that stuff behind us so we can let the good times roll again.

Barb, as usually you are there with what I need. My daughter just called and said they bought a new truck and need to get their 2002 Saturn SL2 out of the driveway. So, I'm thinkin' "hummmm. Reckon what kind of a tow thingy I would need." And guess what you said? Thanks, Barb.

Wayne, I'll be callin' you about the wiring. Ranger sends his love to his Love.

Sure miss alla y'all. I think I'll go somewhere and cry. (or drink) ...

Mike,

The pneumonia shot your Dr gave you was for bacterial pneumonia. You have aspirational pneumonia. The 2 are not anything alike and nothing can protect you from what you got except not getting food and drink in your lungs.

Work on those exercises and make sure you keep your chin slightly tucked when you swallow anything. Thicker liquids are easier to swallow without aspirating.

I was going to say something but Barb said it better. Do like she says.

When I had my 33' 5er, the upper front window would alway vibrate open and destroy the blind, so there must be some other movements going on. I ended up strapping the window permanently shut. No amount of cranking on the knob would keep it from opening. I even put a screw through the knob into the frame and it still came loose.

Jne - welcome back to Texas!
Sorry to hear a road gator got yer tail pipe etc.
Those things are downright dangerous.

I'm with you - don't know whether to cry, drink or both. Maybe I'll call Dr Phill and see what he says!

When my dad had an aspiration problem, the speech therapist gave him a thickening agent to put in drinking water, to help avoid the problem. He was fine until he decided to refuse the thickener. That was when he developed aspirational pneumonia. (We should have refused him the water, of course. Ain't hindsight a bugger!)

Please do as Barb (and your therapist and doctor) tell ya. They really do have your best interests at heart, in spite of how it may seem at times.

We're all pulling for you, you know already. Keep us posted. Tomorrow's the day, hurray, hurray!

Cheers!
Sue

All, it was just now throughly explained to me. The shot does no good. I have been given some swallowing exercises. They hurt my throat and may work in 4-6 months. I was told that I could be silent aspirating and can't cough up anything. Going to take time. I have no need to swallow soup or Ensure, other than for the satisfaction of eating. I may do ice cream. There is some sweetness there. I have a strong sweet tooth, plus the cold will soothe my throat.

The nurse just came in and disconnected the pump. She will start bolus feeding me in an hour. 350 cc every 4 hours. That's a lot of syringes to fill and pump into my belly. Been there twice before and have a plan. I feel so free not being tied to a machine that makes obscene and funny noises. Maybe I could use a fish tank pump to automatically feed a desired amount into me. Leave it to Dunner to find an easier way to do something.
