Haha! The piece of porcelain did a better job than the bottle of rye whiskey and large bottle of red wine did.

I am worried that they may break the other side but they could claim chipped and submit that to ins as well I suppose. I only am versed in medical insurance... I we got some stuff out today. The inside is a mess. That powder is in every nook and cranny. I am worried it got in the gaps between the plank snap together flooring and the dogs could lick at it if it isn't totally cleaned up... I am gonna have them look and see if it will need pulled up and replaced to prevent that. If so, I plan on claiming that as damage as well. Hopefully I can get it to the shop in the next few days.

Fire extinguisher A-B-C powder is not harmful to humans, but if inhaled, tastes crappy and makes you cough up yellow stuff for a week. Found that out the hard way after putting out a raging fire at work one day using over a dozen dry Chemical fire bottles. At least we still had jobs the next day....no fire protection whatsoever in the blessed building.

The stuff works.

I doubt a dog would be interested in it or harmed by it.

That is good to know as it looks like I will be driving the coach to the repair shop... 30ish miles. Figure I'll duct tape the hole in the windscreen wear a mask and hope for the best...

Yeah, it's considered nuisance dust when it settles. You can vacuum it up with a fine filter bag for drywall dust.

Got the estimate for the damage submitted to the insurance. The shop tried to go through airstream to get the windshield and they are around $2200/side. The insurance is apparently declaring the Moho a total loss because of the precise of this. Grr. I am gonna try to get them to do an amended estimate for glass from airstream supply.com for muuuuuuch cheaper. I hope they let me. I am trying to avoid getting a salvage title if I can and get the thing fixed. This is taking too long and it is sitting outside this whole time with a busted windscreen... Grrrr. Good times.

Sorry to hear, Kreimer.
This is a reminder to get a stated value (or agreed on value) insurance policy, if your state and insurance company allows it. I always have to do some gentle convincing when I insure my Airstreams.
If you have a claim without it, you will be on the loosing end, since they will start the negotiating based on some ridiculous low blue book value.

Finally, after weekly calls and many hours holding I got the insurance to issue payment without totaling the rig! Hopefully they get the parts quickly and get it repaired. We have a rally in two weeks and would rather take the motorhome than the trailer.

Long time since update. Did the rally after getting the Motorhome back the day of leaving. Performed wonderfully down there and back. Last weekend we took both of our campers down to a small lake south of us with some friends. Before we left I had a place here in KC do some work on the tires. They removed the unsightly weights from the outside of my aluminum wheels and put in "liquid". I also had them replace the front tires with some michelins. The difference going down the road was definitely noticeable. Before the vibration would start at 60mph. Now there was no vibration and it tracked much better going down the road.
