Who, What, When, Where or Just Lets Talk

Recommended Posts

Yes, Jim. The body shop had began repairs, then the adjuster stopped them and tried to renegotiate the estimate, with long time lapses between phone calls.This means the body shop will not release my MH until their work to date is paid for, and the Progressive addjuster said they will not pay the daily storage fee until this is settled. Right now the adjuster says he will not pay any more than HIS estimate, which is ½ of the body shop estimate.

At this point, I'm frustrated and upset.Progressive appears to have a great reputation in the RVing world.  Lack of frequent communication on my part is part of the delay. I activated the 3rd party appraisal clause today under the policy terms and conditions

I sold my body shop almost 20 years ago and we always referred to Progressive as Regressive. It was always difficult to get supplements. You might consider contacting your state insurance department.

Thanks for that. I've already triggered the arbitration clause (3rd party estimate). I hire an independent appraiser, Progressive does the same. If the two cannot reach an agreement a court appoints  an arbitrator. I do have the Indiana Insurance commissioners phone# handy JIC.

Today I spoke with the Progressive dept. head of adjusters, he was not at all like the local adjuster, who was arrogant and actually threatening. The local adjuster almost demanded I take my MH back to the first body shop I visited because he had an arrangement with them.(steering is illegal in Indiana)

Today was a great and a sad day. We sold our motor home to a couple that will care for it well. We are no longer able to enjoy traveling in our motor home. We have traveled 500,000+ miles together since 1985. We had tents, popup/fold down, travel trailer and 3 motor homes. Saddest part is we will miss seeing all our FMCA friends. 
 

Safe travels to you all

I'm happy for you Ross. We're still in limbo with repairing our MH after 7 months of it parked at the body shop.  By the time we do get it back, we too may be unable to use our MH.

There comes a time for all of us. It just seems that some don’t know when it is time. Not only does Melanie use a walker full time, but I have had 5 surgeries in the past year for detached retina. I am still legal to drive through.

Hang in there Ross. Detached retina's are fixable.  I had a severe blow to my head about 8 years ago. Next day saw my eye Dr. He immediately sent me to a specialist in Greenwood who used laser surgery to reattach both retinas. My eyesight is as good now as before that accident.

Kinda freeked me out, he did the laser surgery while I was awake.

Anyone else see the email promoting the open roads app and fuel discount? I think it is a good deal and hope it helps FMCA to.

This is the latest one I recieved.

FMCA wants you as an FMCA affiliate!
What’s in it for you?

Money! For each new FMCA member that joins using your unique URL, you will receive $10.

What’s in if for the new member?

Benefits, discounts, education, events and chapters! As you already know, FMCA offers its members exclusive benefits and comprehensive group rated discounts that are specifically tailored for the RV owner. But that’s not all, they will also receive $10 off their first year of dues. So immediate and long-term savings. What could be better?

How do you sign up to be an FMCA affiliate?

It’s quite easy. Login to your FMCA.com account and click on the red button on the left hand side that says, Affiliate Program. Here you will find the instructions on how to connect your PayPal account or how to bypass connecting your PayPal account. This second option is for those of you who wish to promote FMCA but not receive payment in return. Don’t worry though, your new member will still receive their immediate $10 discount on their first year of membership.

     
If you are interested in becoming an FMCA affiliate, simply visit https://www.fmca.com/fmca-affiliate to learn more.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at marketing@fmca.com.
