RE: Electronic failures, PCB repairs.

Folks. We are glad to here that many of you are EE. I am not sure i can describe the whole repair that our friend is completing, but what i can say is, it was to do with IC's & some program that is stored on some chip in this PCB. Also was told that certain improvements have been made to increase the reliability-life of this particular PCB. Seems, the OEM board had some areas for improvement!! The bottom line is, when you hit the point of "obsolete parts" you need to have skilled people who know how to repair, reverse eng these parts, and we are lucky we know someone who can help.

Electronic failures, PCB repairs.

Ok folks. We have a 2013 Monaco Knight. We recently had some troubles with a PCB PN 16626855. This board controls washer system, turn indictaors, hazards, part of the smart wheel functions, head lights. So, the exercise begin's, first looking to replace (no success here) so best bet was to get this PCB repaired. Wow, asking for something to be repaired these days, in particular a PCB for an RV, "impossible". So, we wanted to share with our fellow campers, something that may help you. A very good friend of ours, now retired, was an Electronic Eng for many years, working on very complex HV/LV etc, PCB's, mainly "repairs. So we asked for help, and explained our story. Bear in mind, as with all electronics in RV's these days, many of these will have you out of service, until you can fix, meaning NO driving. Well, we are now on the right track, and having our PCB repaired. I am not saying every RV electronic problem, he can just have fixed in a flash, but, if you have no options, we would highly recommend to have a chat with him. Drop us a line if you would like to speak with him. Safe travels folks. Tony & Lesley.

RE: Diminshed Value Claims

Well folks. The one thing we now know is, that this whole DV stuff is based a great deal around opinions, and to some degree state laws. What we do know is that, if your motor home does have an accident report attached to it, it can certainly alter your re-sale value, regardless if you sell private or trade-in. Thanks for all the comments.

RE: Diminshed Value Claims

itsyRV: yes, what you say is generally the reality we face (if we are unfortunate to be on the receiving end) when dealing with the whole DV be honest, just reading all the folks on this forum, it is an eye opener. The one thing we have learned is that DV is REAL when it comes to significant value reduction on motor homes. Some consumer reports show up to 50% reduction in trade value, and that was with minor damage, BUT the coach had an accident (carfax) report attached to it. Also, its a legal obligation that if you sell private, you must inform all and any potential buyers, of all accidents reported! That is a major problem with RV's, you don;t have tons of data to obtain values the insurance company will accept (or accept without fighting you tooth and nail). You are also faced with recorded "sales" that often can jump tens of thousands just by geography, time of year, or even from used RV dealers right next to each other. This is why many say to use your own insurance as you have a contract with them and that contract spells out exactly what they must do for you. If it sets a standard for diminished value, they must abide by it. When dealing with the other party, they only have to do what the state regulators say them must do; often it's pretty weak protections at best. The other insurance company's duty is to save themselves money and protect their client. You are not their client so you have far less rights. Your insurance company has a duty to you, their client, to make it right so you have a while lot more rights and protections with your own company. From past experience, you'll need to get enough comps from wherever to either satisfy them or to satisfy a state regulator that you have done about all that is reasonably possible and hope they can intervene without you having to sue.

RE: Diminshed Value Claims

ST Lucie Appraisal. Yes, you are correct, opinions seem to be what you must gather. However, in the eyes of the insurance company you are dealing with for the claim, we at least have been told, "statistical" data presented is not sufficient....basically all opinions you gather and present are not enough to satisfy your claim. So if not acceptable, what is??

RE: Diminshed Value Claims

PastorCharlie. That is exactly what we understand also. "Any" vehicle that has suffered damage will suffer for diminished value, private sale or trade. So of course our concern is this in itself. This so called "diminished value" industry (when we do have to deal with it) is a very grey area. Trying to show "post value" after incident-repairs seems to be a very big hurdle.

Diminshed Value Claims

Ok folks, our first time here, so will try our best. We recently suffered some damage to our coach, from an 18 wheeler reversing into us, whilst stopped to fuel up!!! So, we had repairs completed, and are now fighting to claim for Diminished Value!! The whole thing about this is very frustrating, so we are now at a point of asking if anyway on this forum can offer any advise to help us out. We have tried the independent appraisal, and submitted that to the "at fault company's, insurance company" and still they are not accepting our!!
