In their defense, they did see this post, and have now called me twice today saying they hope to have the claim resolved by the end of this week. I"ll keep you posted.
I have only had to have a few insurance claims in my life, it never took this long, so I was not sure if it was normal, or what to expect.
Thanks for all the input.
yes, in the end, they did get the poa, but, it was not received prior to it being moved. And yes, I understand the whole they think I purposely torched it. I did not. But, should it really take this long, and keep being told it is under "review"? Funny thing is I did send them a screen shot for tools bought for the repair, it shows in the screen shot I sent them, a pretty healthy bank balance. I have never had an rv claim, so don't know if this is just them, normal, or what.
Having an issue here, am wondering if this is normal, or what to do.
I have had Blue Sky RV Insurance since I purchased my trailer in 2014. never had a claim, til now.
On 08/06/16, My Sunnybrook was accidentally burned up, while I was working on replacing the flooring. Sadly, it was my own accident that caused it.
I filed a claim on 08/08/16. I was told later by the adjuster of a company called RIS Risk Management Services, that my trailer was valued at $25,800, but, repairs were over $28,000, thus, exceeding the limits of my policy.
I have fully answered all their questions, including a notarized affidavit of vehicle fire.
On 08/17/16, the adjuster requested a notarized power of attorney to dispose of my trailer. I asked about my personal property, still in the basement, that had not been damaged. he stated I would be notified before they towed my trailer, and would be able to get my property. On 08/19/16, the salvage company showed up, with no notification, and towed it away. The adjuster would not have had the power of attorney yet, to dispose of my trailer. Now. I am being told I need to drive 2 hours 1 way, between 9 am - 3 pm, only monday through friday, to recover my personal property. No allowances will be made, and they won't pay to return my trailer to recover my property, even though they did not have the power of attorney, prior to towing it.
On 08/23/16, they asked for the lien holders phone number, and I provided it. I was told at this point "it is under review".
On 08/26/16, they asked for a receipt for the flooring I had purchased, I was not able to provide that, as I did not have it anymore.
At this point, it is still under review. Over 1 month after filing the claim.
I am very disappointed in their customer service. I rarely talk to my adjuster. I will leave a voice mail, and a day or two later I will get an e-mail answering my question, not a call back, an e-mail. Sometimes it takes as long as 4 days.
Is it normal to take this long?
Is this just a shady company?
Thanks in advance.
Not a direct answer to your question, but, I have a mid kitchen, rear living room in my sunnybrook. Because my kitchen is also one of the slideouts, it does not really get in the way of the living area, when cooking. If you are choosing a trailer with no slideouts, then I would go with a rear kitchen, to keep it out of the way, so to speak.
I have a 3500 watt running load, 4000 watt peak load, champion generator, with remote start. I am using it on a Sunnybrook 31BWKS. during deer, and elk hunting trips, I have ran it for 5-6 hours straight. Manufacture says it is only 68db running. With the remote start I can set it up, 50 or 60 feet away. It does run my microwave, refrigerator, portable heater, tv, and dvd player all at once. I have not tried my A/C unit with it yet.
This is the second champion generator I have had, still have the first one, that a buddy uses.
I paid about $420 through Cabelas for the new generator this year.
Quite happy with both of them. Much happier with the remote start at 20 degrees in the morning.
they are pretty good units, if you can get them at a good price.
