Survey our damage. Needless to say our rig is unlivable.
You can actually see our living room from this slit. The whole back end of the rig is pulled away from the side. We are so glad it was not raining.
This happened about 1 pm on Saturday. We called our insurance agent in SD. She was not in the office but a co-worker contacted her and she called me. Gina was quite helpful even though she was about to leave on vacation to Florida.
What we did - we drove (slowly) about 50 miles to the nearest Montana dealer in Hooks, Texas. We got there at 3 right before closing. The manager reports it will take about two weeks to get the part and another week to fix our rig. He said he can seal it up and we can live in it until the part comes in. We left our rig at the dealer for the time being.
Our plan. We are now in Ada, OK headed to SD. We will drive up there in our truck, get our licenses probably on Tuesday and then return to Texas. We will have the dealer seal the rig which we will live in until the part comes in. Then we will have to move into a motel until the rig is fixed.
Sometimes we really have to wonder if we are meant to fulltime RV. Len is really sick about this and blames himself. Hey - it was an accident!
I can only imagine what our insurance company will do when faced with this claim. We signed on with them only 6 weeks ago.
