RE: Be wary of National General Insurance

If you swerve to avoid anything and are the only vehicle involved in the accident, you are the one at fault, period. Who else could it be when no one else was involved. Sounds like you might work for an insurance company. Regardless of the (badly flawed) reasoning, it appears that NGI has a long history of questionable procedures and business practices. To see, look them up on Yelp. They have a one star rating and a lot of pissed off customers.

RE: Be wary of National General Insurance

My policy with them is up soon. I've never had a claim, so your story is disheartening to say the least. Care to recommend who you ended up with? I went back to Progressive. More money, but they are more of a professional and reasonable company to deal with. Good Sam Insurance should stop doing business with NGI. As someone else pointed out, they got a one star rating on Yelp.

RE: Be wary of National General Insurance

They have a one star rating on yelp: National General RV Insurance I did not see that. I relied on RV net recommendations and used a different web site that rated RV insurance companies.

Be wary of National General Insurance

If you are considering getting RV insurance, please be wary of National General Insurance. My experience with them was the worst in my almost sixty years of driving (including 15 years with RVs). National General gave me a very reasonable rate and got very good ratings. However, when I had an accident my experience turned very sour. My accident occurred on a narrow curvy mountain road. As I was driving an oncoming vehicle drifted over the centerline. In order to avoid a head on collision, I had to swerve. This caused me to collide with the guard rail. Since the guard rail was very close to the road’s edge, the impact was unavoidable. National General found me 100% at fault, because I could not prove that another vehicle caused this impact. In fact, the adjuster even implied that I should have turned a 35 foot motorhome around on a narrow two lane road and chased the offender. They further kept focusing on irrelevant facts (such as there was no place for me to immediately stop). I have never been treated so rudely by any insurance company. To add insult to injury all of their approved repair shops in my area were those that I know were extremely marginal. Although I was allowed to choose an alternative, their language was strongly discouraging, with strong warnings that implied that they may not pay the full cost of repair. The coach was repaired, but it took 3 times as long as it should have, because of the incompetence of the repair facility. The final insult was that they more than doubled my rate (based on their bogus "at fault determination) I will never do business with this terrible unfriendly company again.

RE: ? Heat & Air on Ford Chassis?

My only concern is the use of gasoline. In my experience, the dash air drops your mileage almost 1 mile per gallon. Using the generator and the house air is a lot more economical and cools the entire coach. The dash heat should be okay to heat the cockpit. I just prefer the house heat.

RE: Bed slide wont work. 2015 /winnebago Journey 36M

We had the same issue with our Itasca Sunrise. It turned out that the seals on the slide had gotten stuck to the motorhome. It took two big guys to get it unstuck. They then just put silicone lubricant on the seals. No more problem.

RE: installing air bags

I installed the Kelderman air ride system on the front of my rig. I would not advise it. It only improved the ride marginally and was not worth the cost. If I had it to do over again, I would not. The system is also prone to leaks.

RE: Kelderman upgrade

I put the Kelderman air ride on the front of my F53 chassis. If I had it to do over again, I would not do it. It only made a marginal difference for a considerable cost. I should have stayed with Koni FSDs. It is also a pain to constantly check the air pressure. The system also has a tendency to leak air pressure. Save your money.

RE: Air Bag Helper Springs for MH ??

I installed the Kelderman air ride on the front of my F53 chassis (Itasca Sunrise). If I had it to do over again, I would not do it. It improved the ride marginally, but was definitely not worth the cost. It is also a pain to always be checking the air pressure. Should have just stuck with the Koni FSDs.

RE: RV Insurance

I had been with Progressive for years, but after their last significant raise in my policy I searched around. National General gave me a much better rate. I also looked them up for ratings. They are in the top ten for RV insurance and are rated higher than Progressive.

RE: Bedroom slide won't go out

Unless I missed it.......did you operate slides on shore power ? No... just on engine and generator.

RE: Bedroom slide won't go out

I'm not sure if our slides are hydraulic or electric. The brand is Power Gear. I have no idea if I can manually extend the slide or not. I will try the idea of running the slide out as far as it will go then retract several times. I don't believe the problem is with the batteries as the front slide (which is much bigger) extends and retracts with no problem.

Bedroom slide won't go out

We just had an odd and infuriating problem with our bedroom slide. When I pressed the extend button, the slide goes out about 2 inches, then stops. It retracts fine. The living room slide works fine. I tried running the engine and also kicked on the generator. Neither worked. Suggestions please.

RE: AAA Towing

AAA does not operate in every state. Service is horrible. They do not tow you to the nearest certified service center. There are only 2 players in this business. Coach Net and Good Sam. Moisheh That is true unless you have FMCA. They now offer a roadside assistance service called Safe Ride.

RE: Newbie Power Gear Leveling question

I had a similar problem. It turned out to be an inline fuse. Apparently the fuse that was placed inline was too small (5 amp). I replaced it with a 10 amp fuse and no more problem. This was also on a Power Gear system. I'm not sure where your inline fuse might be. Mine was up in the driver's side wheel well. It is just a small square box.
viajante 07/09/18 12:04pm Class A Motorhomes

That is very useful news. I noticed that my renewal was significantly higher than usual, but I didn't know why. Guess I will be going with the FMCA roadside assistance program.
