RE: Camper got hailed on last night

here's my suggestions: Cars: pretty straight forward, they will give you an estimate and usually a check on the spot. Most repairs will be paintless dent repair, unless the paint is damaged, or its severe damage. You should look over the car for any cracks in the paint, especially for dents on edges, near body lines, or deep dents, cracked paint will require conventional repair and its easily overlooked. Take your car to a reputable shop, they will go back to the insurer for supplemental repair costs if its more than what the insurer gives you. House: If you know a reputable roofer, have them present when the adjuster is there, they will help get the initial claim to cover everything needed. You should also be covered for things like dented gutters, chipped paint/siding, torn screens, broken patio furniture, broken window frames, etc. If you have a mortgage, the check will be made out to you and the bank. Every bank has their own process for how they pay the money out. Trailer: You will most likely need to take this to a dealer for an estimate, your insurance company will give you instructions on this. You can have this done before or after the adjuster looks at it. Siding repairs are expensive, so be prepared for an expensive repair estimate. As far as the roof, check for broken/cracked skylights, tape these up so they don't leak until you can get them replaced. Also check the top of the awning, the fabric is often damaged, other than that look for broken or damaged a/c cover, refrig vent cover, lights, trim etc. You may want to call the dealer first, some charge for estimates, some don't. My suggestion is to look everything over in advance so the adjuster gets as much as possible in the initial claim. Also keep receipts for any temporary repairs you make, these are reimbursable.

RE: Private Seller - Financing

Some options from any bank/ credit union - Rv /trailer loan (rv value must be >= loan amount) - If you own a home a HELOC or home equity loan - If you own a late model car/truck you can give the bank the title and get an auto loan

RE: 2009 Silverado 3500 HD Duramax LMM overheating

i had an 08 dmax pulling about 13k up eisenhower and other CO passes. What i found works best is to put the tranny in manual shift,and keep the rpms around 2500 or slightly higher. engine temp sometimes climbs to 3/4 mark, but fan should kick in and bring it back down. seems counter-intuitive to the diesel to run at higher rpm, but it worked for me.

RE: How to treat a Subfloor?

I'd 2nd the recommendations for advantech. I've had it in my snowmobile trailer for 10 years, which is constantly exposed to salt, mag chloride, standing water, ice and snow. No issues with it breaking down, warping or sagging. If your really worried about it, then use an underlayment on the vinyl flooring (assuming its plank or similar), i'd suggest something rated for non climate controlled otherwise it can contract in cold environments and separate at the seams.

RE: Travel trailer for taller person

2nd vote for toyhauler, had three of them, only issue is the door frames are short in pretty much all of them.
