Talked to our RV insurance company. If the tow truck backs into us or runs into us.....it is covered by collision. Damage while towed comes under comprehensive.

We call them to file a claim and perhaps an adjuster will visit. We have an endorsement providing for meals, lodging and transportation up to $200/day, a total of $2000.00 available.

Agent says to take pics before towing begins but did not want to comment on signing any paperwork that had damage waiver language.

Local garage who does repairs and towing....and been around for a long time......does not require signing any paperwork.

Your thinking of a Landoll trailer, which is a drop deck that tilts and has a winch. Best way to be towed. I know someone who had their DP towed and the rig was damaged when the tow truck pull up a driveway that had a dip and the flooring was cracked along with a broken windshield. This all happen when the MH flexed and twisted. Landoll trailers support a long vehicle such as a MH so this does not happen.
By the way, it's JERRDAN.

We had ours towed about 15 miles when the radiator died. He refused to remove the drive shaft and totally destroyed the transmission. The tow company paid $4500 for the overhaul. Tow truck driver was fired. New tranny works great.
