RE: Damaged RV on roads on way home from Florida, anyone else?.

UPDATE......So after waiting for almost 3 months for the insurance company to get their act together. And having the wall removed on the inside of the fiver and us agreeing to pay for it, they agreed to pay for the repairs. We agreed to pay for the wall to be removed so that THEY could show US where the so called manufacturers defect was that caused the damage. NO defect in the wall was found. So all said and done, in the end it was our having to prove it was not a defect as they claimed it was (at our expense and time) but road conditions that caused the damage. Thank you for your input and insight into our situation. It doesn't always work out the way it did for us, but in the end it is worth not letting the insurance walk away and not making them show you what they based their decision on. It was going to cost us to do the repairs even if we were denied so paying for the wall to be removed was something we were going to do anyway. And yes, they agreed to pay for the removal of the wall in the end as well.

CaLBaR, we live in Chatham and the RV shop is in Windsor, name of the place is Leisure trailers. It's the only shop in the area that could do the welding for the broken welds UNDERNEATH the RV, which we already had done at our cost. They also can repair the damage to the side of the RV where the crack is.

These are two different pictures of the inside wall behind where the crack is on the outside wall. NO BROKEN WELDS OR STUDS that would cause the damage the insurance company said was a factory defect. https://i.imgur.com/O642ybll.jpg https://i.imgur.com/lIA6n07l.jpg

RE: Damaged RV on roads on way home from Florida, anyone else?.

Just an update on our fiver. The 5er has been sitting on the lot of a repair shop waiting for the insurance company to get their hands off their butts to send someone out to show us where the manufacturers defect is. After many phone calls they agreed to have the wall removed inside at OUR expense unless they agree to the repairs. Well the wall is open and there is NO damage to the structure of the rv. As a matter of fact,the wall studs are metal and are the biggest ones we have seen in an RV. The studs are about 6 inches wide and there is no damage or broken welds in the area of the large crack. So now its yet another waiting game to see what excuses they come up with to get out of paying our claim, which is over $10,000.

Damaged RV on roads on way home from Florida, anyone else?.

Let me first say that the roads were really bad this year in the northern states in April. On our way home from Florida to Ontario Canada along interstate 75 we hit some very bad roads with potholes and cracks in the roads. We hit some potholes because we had no place to go but into and over them due to traffic. We did hit a couple pretty hard and we travel at about 60 mph. Once home we noticed while unloading that we now have a Crack in the side of the RV, running about a foot in front of the axle. The crack starts at the top right corner of our slide in the livingroom. After seeing this we went to look under the RV to see if anything else was damaged. Under the RV we noticed the underbelly had lost a screw and upon looking at it and lowering the belly a little more, that in 2 places on the cross beam the welds had broken loose. Has ANYONE had anything like this happen to them while traveling along I75 or for that matter along any bad roads? Insurance is saying its manufacturers defect and that we would have Tire and rim damage if the roads were bad and we hit potholes. They haven't even looked inside the RV for frame damage yet its manufacturers defect. We have 14ply tires so that shouldn't happen anyway by hitting a pothole.

RE: Trade in question

We traded in a fiver sight unseen by dealer towards a new fiver, except that hubby accidentally put the tip of a screw through the side when he put the side table he removed back in. We did NOT see it and when it was brought to our attention asked about cost to have it fixed. The gladly deducted $500 from trade in. Great...except a week after we got our new fiver it needed warranty work. Back to dealership we go, told a week for repairs, one being the bedroom door frame came away from the wall and we didn't want to put a hole in side so they assured us not a big deal and would be repaired. Waited 2 weeks, still not ready, 4 weeks in I told husband we need to go see whats taking so long, surprise visit, no more nice phone calls, later afternoon on a Saturday we went. Service technician was there and I asked where our unit was because we needed to get something out of it. While walking to the back lot I asked him where our traded in unit was and was told it Sold. ASKED about the repair and he smiled and said, we put a new decal over the hole, not fixed just covered. We couldn't believe what he said UNTIL the next sentence came out of his mouth. So when we get your unit back from the body shop,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,wait what do you mean body shop?....Stopped dead in tracks and asked again. WHAT BODY SHOP AND WHY?... Seems that the week we brought it to them, head technician put a full screw through the sidewall trying to fix the door casing and he thought we knew. Nope didn't know but the office did when I was done with them the following day. Yup, they forgot to call to tell us and was waiting for the repair shop to get back to them for a date for repair. That screw was HUGE and stuck out about an inch. So after being lied to, made to feel like scum for not knowing that we didn't know about the tip of screw that they deducted $500 for a decal to cover it up with , well let's just say they knew me really well and got our unit fixed very quickly because I was on their backs every single day.
