RE: WVa flooding got my TH

Thanks Mike... Appreciate the offer. Will have to go back and try to salvage what we can. Hoping Progressive will get it worked out... The property will recover.. Will need to do cleaning on the pad and yard.. About all we can do now is sigh and give thanks that in our case, it was just our camper. 23 life's were lost with some still unaccounted for. Homes and vehicles washed away.. In the greater scheme of things, we were fortunate. Some who lost homes didn't have insurance..AND.... It's still raining Jim

RE: WVa flooding got my TH

We have never met except for back and forth on this forum for a few years . Terrible thing but you seem to be handling it well.Good to hear about your experience with progressive as we have the same plan with them on our 2013 Montana Big Sky. Just hang in there buddy and you will be back on the road in no time. Thanks Buddy... Will let all know how it works out with Progressive... Going to wait to see what settlement is, then make a decision on another one.. Looking now Jim

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

Hectic weekend, Flooding in WVa claimed my TH...water came up 7' on it...will have to be totaled...It's soaking wet, full of silt/mud and we'll lose quite a bit of personal property. A Progressive Adjuster will call me tomorrow and hopefully insurance will do us right and we'll be able to purchase another unit..Pretty devastating weekend for Kathy and I.

RE: WVa flooding got my TH

I don't know you, nor am I familiar with your posts. But I could feel your anguish when you posted two days ago. Strong hugs and good wishes to you and your wife. You both, and your pups and son, will be AOK. Thank you very much..it's greatly appreciated. Jim

RE: WVa flooding got my TH

Will talk to adjuster tomorrow and speak to them about the satellite and W/D combo...they were add-on's I purchased and put on by dealer..Will try to salvage some of our personal belongings..Told them I wouldn't tow it anywhere..wheels set under water for at least 12 hrs or longer..no power supply, inverter.no nothing..If I want slides out to get some things, will have to crank out slides..Going to have to dry out..very dark inside and slick as all get outs with silt/mud on the floor and everything sopping wet.

RE: WVa flooding got my TH

Sorry to hear about your trailer, but glad to hear your family and puppy dogs are good. Sounds like Progressive is going to do you right so that is good to hear. Enjoy the new rig shopping. Now you will be able to deal on the cost of the rig and not have to do the haggling over the trade in value. Exactly...going for "bottom line":)

RE: WVa flooding got my TH

Sorry to hear about all the flooding NC. A lot of good folks had to deal with flooding conditions here in Texas recently as well, but at least it's not your house. You're right Troy... A lot of people had it a lot worse and lost homes and vehicles. We still have a home... It was utter devastation . So far 20 have died with some still missing. My son lives in Kingwood Tx, a suburb of Houston and so far they've dodged the flooding. We'll move on from it and are thankful it was just a camper. Take care, Jim On edit: death toll up to 24 now...

RE: WVa flooding got my TH

OMG JIM! I am so sorry to hear about your misfortunes buddy. You know we are wishing you the best. There should be no way that they can try to salvage that with all the water damage....there will be mold. Since you have full coverage, and knowing what you know - try to enjoy picking out a new unit. You've been through a lot, you will get through this....nobody was lost. My friend, you are in my prayers that things will work out. I wish I could help you. GO Mountaineers. Mike Hey Mike, it could have been worse, so we're counting our blessings and preparing to look for a new 5er Oh, and GO 'EER's (: Jim

RE: WVa flooding got my TH

Not to sound harsh, but it's a good thing there was total destruction of the camper. The insurance company will for sure count it as a total loss and pay out whatever it's current value is, so you can get another one. :). With Progressive, less than a year old, we get full cost. Replacement per the agent, we can probably Salvage the washer dryer combo and the Direct TV HD satellite on the roof. So now we're looking for a replacement Agree, NO WAY they can't total it... It is trashed with water and mud 5-5 1/2' high.

RE: WVa flooding got my TH

Wishing the best for you. We are camping at Summersville Lake now. We are high and dry. Just can't keep from thinking about what could have been if you were at the camper. Right now there are 20 confirmed deaths from the flooding some areas received 10" o rain in 3 hours. The camper is replaceable. So glad that you and family are safe and did not have to try to escape a very hazardous situation. Know where you are. Thanks for the sentiments . We went to the camper today though we couldn't drive up to it due to standing water. Water from the pad up to water line was a little over 7'.. Opened the garage and couldn't walk in fur to do much mud and debris... Same for the living room and kitchen.... Mud, silk, soaking wet is inside conditions.. Got up to a foot in bedroom.. "MAY" be able to salvage the washer/dryer combo, and will remove satellite dish from the roof... Water sit in unit for probably 10-12 hrs. Generator, inverter, powers supply were all under water... Have had 3 calls from Progressive and an agent will call us Monday to set up a time to look at the unit.. Door to the bathroom was already delamination where it had sit in water... I'm figuring and hoping they'll total the camper... Can't see them trying to repair... Had mud on the countertops in kitchen and up to the convection oven. Got pictures, will post later Shopping for a new one now I guess??.. Trying to be pessimistic about the situation Jim

RE: WVa flooding got my TH

Will be able to get to my camper today, unless roads have been damaged... Will take pictures and find out what the damage is.. Been towing/camping for over 40 years and this is the first time anything like this has ever happened to us, so life has been good. Just seems since last August with the stroke and my wife having hip replacement last of May; there's been a lot happening.. Just another stage in our life. Prepared for the worse just in case... Already have a claim number from our insurance company and are covered for full price of our camper... Haven't had it a year until 12 August.. SOOO, we'll see what we'll see.... Thank you all for your thoughtful post. The support of friends in times like these is extremely helpful . Thank you all, Jim & Kathy

RE: WVa flooding got my TH

Dogs were with us, all are safe.... Our camp is in Pence Springs WVa.. Road in Alderson is under water , can't get to the camp that way and coming from Hinton, road blocked around Talcott.. All on Greenbriar River. We found out camper is still on its pad, my sons TT is up against it and water got 1/2 way up the doors, so water damage at the least... Hoping to get up there and get pics tomorrow. Hopefully we can salvage stuff we've been moving into the camper and still have this camper, or depending on damages, get another one. Last report, over a hundred homes destroyed and 14 dead... Power off to a LOT of people. No telling how many camper' destroyed.. 44 of 55 counties declared disaster areas by Govenor. Jim

WVa flooding got my TH

Extensive flooding in WVa has us to where we can't get within 10 miles of our TH. We were in Beckley visiting my brother and we got word River was rising 2 to 3 feet an hour. We were 45 mins away from our camper and torrential downpours shut roads down to where we couldn't get to the TH to move it.. Long story short, don't even know if it's on our pad, or washed away... I KNOW it's under water to some extent... I called insurance comany and hope River drops low enough to be able to assess the damage and take pictures for insurance purposes. Rough night for the wife and I . We don't exactly know what to do... Oh, sons camper was also on our lot... Don't know it's condition either. One never knows what is going to happen. Guess we're now without a camper...between me recouping from the stroke and wife from hip replacement.. This is just about a knock out blow... Don't know what we're going to do at this time..... Jim

RE: Tire Valve Stem Extenders

For a little different slant google Myers Tire Supply in Charlotte NC and look up the "Air Flex extensions"....pretty unique...I ordered a pair that were 5 & 11/16" long for a total of $26.26... I ordered PN 22303.. some order PN 22304...I like them a lot...easy install and work like a champ with no extra weight on the valve stem and the extension doesn't need to be locked down check it out...

RE: 2016 vehicle quality ratings released

Is this initial quality or vehicle dependability? The former is completely useless, the ladder is somewhat less useless. Thus the reason I replied the way I did..just doesn't really matter

RE: 2016 vehicle quality ratings released
