Regarding the Chevy HHR pictured above - the breakaway switch may not have been activated, since they are frequently attached to the hitch (which broke away). Makes a good case for attaching the breakaway cable to an independent attachment point on the coach frame.

Yee-haw!

Oh I so wanna be there! Got the hat now; is that good enough, or do I have to add leather fringe to our shirts & pants? Don't do boots. Moccasins, mayhap.

Oops! Mixed costuming there!

What a girl, Herb and Barb! Proud as you are, I hope she has every pride in herself and knows she earned every award.

Now go pick up all those buttons. 😜

I would love to see you fly off with Bob. Not a yak - but what a site to see.

Back in the day, a physique like mine was attributed to the aristocracy... today, not so much. But I do have some loot left... we may need to upgrade one day. Eek.

The tech will be looking for hidden damage as they replace things on the roof.

$0.00, I say zero, deductible on both. We went to zero before our trip to Alaska in 2013. LARGE savings for an extra $8.00 a month.

Yes Papa Steve, what did they say about your MH roof?

Has anyone tried finding Michelin 255/80R22.5 tires? Non existent.

I need them near me to replace the ones I have.

Got Citrus out of annual maintenance today. Eeek! Cost for maintenance is high. Won't post it here but if interest I'll email it to you.

It is now in the hail repair hospital. Service department said an adjuster came by and said that looking at the pictures there may be more damage than first indicated. Duh! I know that. They missed the many dings on the bay doors. I wish I could claim tires - ah, but that will not happen.

The MKX will be out of the shop on Wednesday.

Damage just sucks!

The instructions with my ReadyBrake breakaway device were very explicit that the cable not be attached to anything except the frame of the motor home.

If anyone has one that isn't on the frame, I'd suggest you change that ASAP -- definitely before you hook up your toad again. I had a friend in high school whose parents were killed by a runaway boat and trailer. One of these simple and reasonably priced breakaway devices would have prevented that tragedy.
