We saw the aftermath, 24 people drowned in the WV flooding... Couldn't get to our camper in time, was cut off by high waters, flooding roads all around. Was not literally "in it",like you all were... Can't relate to that and hope it becomes a distant memory to you. It was losing everything we had in and around, our soon to be fulltimers unit. Lost somethings that can never be replaced, pictures of family throughout our life, etc... Can't image what you went through and am thankful no one was hurt. It's still scary to us, we keep a vigilant eye on conditions of the river here.
I was relating more to the loss of everything.. Wasn't much we could do... Still recovering from the stroke I had last August and last of this June, early July, it became a bit overwhelming to my wife and I, ( she had just had hip replacement surgery).
I hope all goes well for you and yours here on out and y'all can work through the scary parts of it.
Take care buddy,
Jim, so very sorry to hear about your loss, . Thank the Lord, no one was hurt! My wife and I can relate to a degree. We had a 2016 Jayco Seismic parked on our lot in WV. Loading it up with trips back and forth from NC to our camp getting ready to fulltime, when a flood on June 24th, 3rd worse ever and river rising faster than anyone could remember, totaled our Jayco.. Moved the unit 5-6' on the pad and water got 5' deep inside the camper, about 10" up on the bed.. We lost EVERYTHING.. No fire, but mud, rancid, nasty water., couldn't walk on the property, water and mud everywhere! When we got inside the unit, it was covered with mud, water, stink... Had to leave, wasn't healthy! Never seen anything like it. BUT, like you, insurance covered full amount and in 2 weeks, we had money to purchase camper in sig
Glad no one was hurt and sorry you lost all your possessions that were in your 5er. But thank goodness, insurance did you right and you can make some new memories.
Take care buddy,
I owned Reese 5th fifth wheel hitches for years and years... A 16K slider and a 20k signature series... No problems and good hitches, BUT, I DID have to replace small parts on occasions, springs, rubber stops, a rebuild kit.. No big deal, My B&W is awesome and I've been very happy with it.. No calls to B&W, too new I guess... Have heard A LOT of good about there service after the sale.
I just sent you a PM, check it out.
Mobile Suite RVs have stacked and welded triple tubular frame chassis. The tubular frame stacks up to 15".
MS units aren't cheap, nor are a lot of used ones, but he could get lucky, so good idea :)
They were great to me and took care of Thor issues. Just curious if CW will honor my extended warranty. If they're not working with MS units anymore, I may need to get a refund. I purchased my 2016 in July... They had 6 or 7 still on the lot... NO ONE told me they weren't going to carry them and sold me the extended warranty and told me ANY CW would work on my unit, if need be...
Good Sam Admistrstors. I'm an Elite member and also have 4 yr GS ERS, DUE TO ME PURCHASING THE MS 36RSSB3. I will get you my number tomorrow. I better get some truthful answers on this
I purchased a new 2016 MS36RSSB3 in July from Tom Johnson's Camping World in Marion. They had at least 7 in stock. I was told they're not selling the MS line anymore. I purchased a 7 yr extended warranty. Will Camping World work on my MS should it need work done on it?
Sure would like some honest answers.
I will reiterate, as did Old Biscuit that our 2016 Jayco 45' Seismic was deemed totaled in WVa flooding, got 5' high in our unit... ( I consider that major) , and in a little over TWO weeks had a check in hand for full purchase price... Got either daily emails and/or were called almost Dailey being kept up to date on everything going on. That unit was what we were going to fulltime in starting less than 2 months later. Also, even with that payout, my fulltimers ins is less in WV than my reg RV ins was in NC!!. I know Progressive from experience... Will stick with them for the excellent way they treated my wife and I and our situation at that time.. We had signed contract to sell our home about 2 days before flood totaled our 5er... We were clueless on how long everything would take.. Progressive was there for us during that time frame and made whole ordeal a lot less stressful.
I have Progressive, now as a Fulltimers. We lost our 2016 in the flood in WVa June 24th, filed a claim on the 25th, I had a claim number that day. In two weeks, they totaled out our 5er, towed it off and we had a check to pay for the one we have now. I didn't get stuck with higher rates either. Fulltimers covers my unit for full price and is insurance like you carry on your home... or regular insurance. Great rates, and the way they treated my wife and I during that time frame, I'll stick with them.
We closed on our house on August 23rd, relocated on Aug 24th. Progressive was aware we were in "transition" until we got WV drivers license, physical address, etc. We had insurance. It takes a bit to get everything done I mentioned above.
While I'm posting this, we're with a Progressive agent, updating our RV insurance to fulltimers, residence in WV, same with our truck... Will be done as soon as she prints out all info.
I own our land here in WV. A little over a half acre, in a valley, surrounded by mountains and on a river. I've had Progressive, auto and RV and was going to stay with them. The wife and I have excellent credit and no accidents or tickets.
We have 5,000 gallon septic system, city water and 220 amp service, one 50 amp and 30 amp set up for RV's and several 110 volt circuits. It's beautiful here. we'll spend the majority of our time here. In the winter, head south, south/west. Truck ins more here than in NC, but not the taxes. We have a physical address for 911 purposes as well as a PO Box, but do almost all our banking through email, direct deposits, etc.
The wife and I retired end of July, sold the stick build and we've been fulltiming at our camp in WV. Will stay here from March thru sometime in November, then go to the Houston area for the winter, 11/16- 3/17. Our son, DIL and two grandsons are there. We're getting ready to purchase full timers insurance and as of now, will go with Progressive, it's set up more like home insurance than reg. RV insurance. Any thoughts or suggestions?
Hey buddy, been getting all our ducks in a row, mailing address, WV drivers licence. Transfer of plates, getting pharmacy set up etc.... Got the 5er set up, land looks good... Need rain, we've been here three weeks tomorrow and it's only rained for about an hour. We need some rain!
All in all its been great. I've over done it some and am pretty sore right now, but hoping it'll pass.... Can always find something to do.
May go fishing here shortly:B
Hope everyone is well and having a great day.
And I'm an Engineer??. Actually knew that, but got ahead of myself. I'm almost 1,000# under my trucks RAWR. The front of the 5er was Pretty well loaded, as we're packed for full timing. The bedroom and closet are also "well packed". Truck towed smoothly. No chucking, yanking.. and stayed at speed quiet easily. I feel this 5er was a great fit for my truck:)
