I would also give a big thumbs up to American Family for stepping up for you on this. I had a windshield replaced last fall at a glass shop recommended by my insurance agent. Terrible work, the glass was 1/8" above the body, 2 pieces of trim broken, broken glass everywhere inside the car. When I heard nothing from the glass shop for 2 weeks I took the car to the agent's office, they weren't even interested enough to walk out and look at it. I can imagine their reaction to what you have gone through.

Update

We are still waiting for the work on our MO to be completed. The wrong turbo was delivered and fortunatly discovered before being installed.
This has been the longest period of no camping we have been through in quite some time and are eager to get back on the road.

Do you have an estimated time of completion?

It will be all the sweeter once your again on the road!

Update Cont.

There is no estimate of when it will be completed. Without getting into a discussion of why I did not have them use a Cummins or something other than Isuzu, let me state that a replacement engine was difficult to find. They are using a brand new engine and not a re-built one and this was not readily available to fit the configuration of the MO.
Not being a mechanic or having a great understanding of engines I need to trust the many years of experience this dealer has. They are one of the largest Isuzu dealers in the country as well as several other big truck lines.
We are ready to roll as soon as the MO is complete. If we had any idea it would have taken this long we would have unpacked more stuff to bring home. I especially would like to have my bike which is sitting on the back of the MO. The weather has finally broken here and it is time to bike ride again.

The End!

We picked up our motor home last night. The engine is so quiet it is like riding in a luxury car and so powerful it is like a sports car. The final bill was $19,000 and our total cost was $2500 which included new injectors and our $ 500 deductible. American Family is now going to help us pick up that balance plus our extra expenses like the car rental and motel room from General Casualty.
If there is a moral to this story it may be that the cheapest insurance may not alway be the best. We have had American Family for over twenty five years insuring everything from our home to our cars, our trailer and now our motor home. Our Children both carry American Family from the same agent and we have always gotten excellent service and outstanding service when we have had to file a claim. It is nice to know that loyalty is rewarded in corporate America.

whoah 19,000!! You are truly blessed to have it all work out the way it did. Now you have a "new" motorhome engine, that with good care should last you many many years.

I like to ask a question about you filter. Did it have a check valve in it? I run across one in a trucks fuel filter. Check valve was the wrong way. This has been 15 to 20 years a go I run across this.

Sorry, I would not know if it had a check valve or not.
