Windows

Good morning,

I will need the the front double unit on the left of the door and the curbside rear bedroom window, both had frame and screen damage. The Kitchen window just had screen damage and I htink I can fix that easily enough.

Thanks,
Carol

Angry Thanks to everyone

I want to thank everyone for your comments. Sure makes me feel like part of the family to share this tragedy with you all. I do like the suggestion about leaving the coach unlocked. My greatest sadness is the destruction, not the missing items which can be easily replaced. I took a lot of pictures last evening for the insurance company and just kept thinking how much destruction could have been avoided.

All they really needed to do was borrow the extension ladder from the back of the yard, pry one window open, climb in and lift the lever on the door. It could have been so very easy...really dumb, dumb crooks.

Thanks again for the comments, I will contact AS for a quote too.

Oh, I also thought about the electric fence idea...what if we all had a tarp of mesh netting to cover our coaches with that could be electrified? Maybe a new product for someone to invent?

Very sorry to hear they got into your trailer. We also leave our trailer unlocked. I figure there's nothing much in there that would be of interest to a theif, except for the trailer itself. But I hate to think of the damage an idiot with a crowbar could do trying to get in. Obviously you can't leave it unlocked in a storage yard, but if it's next to your house I think it's a good idea. I do the same thing with my convertible, for the same reason. Convertible tops are far more expensive than the radio, which is the only thing they could steal out of it.

In March 1999 Iwalked out of a friend's home in North Austin to find my K-5 Blazer gone. Never saw it or the $4000 worth of tools and music in it again.
I never want to experience that violated feeling again.
It is a wonder that there are not more motorhomes stolen and parted out, and trailers too. How much $$$ is aluminum per pound now anyway?

It was so sad to read the posts of those who had the breakins. My prayers are with you. Sadly there is an element of people who think nothing of taking or vandalizing other people's property. I taught children like this for several years and it never ceased to amaze me when they talked about their crimes with no sense of remorse towards their victims.

I feel your pain! I'm on the 2nd month of attempting an estimate for repairs on my 76 Argosy 28' MH. While parked at our workshop/storge lot it suffered a forced entry of door, bent frame,sprung door,trashed lock,pried striker. Didn't take anything. My kid moved into it the next night to keep an eye on things(Even with the colder weather in OHIO He likes the unit so much I don't think he will move out of it now!)I will be contacting JacksonCenter to get a decent/accurate estimate. Take Care, JOEY

When my 345 was borken into and the door window was broken out I ended up getting my quote from Airstream. I went to two AS dealers first. One did not give me the confidence that they even knew what I was talking about (service manager asked what a 345 was) and the second flat out told me they did not have the tools to do the job properly.

I received a flat quote from Airstream by describing the damage to their service writers, submitted it to my insurance company and they paid me within a week. I ended up getting the work done in Jackson Center (not too far for me) and the final bill was lower than the quote.
sorry to haer about bad news . i need trailer indemnity insurance any recomendations ? cheers steve

After our recent experience when the engine failed due to a mechanic using the wrong oil filter. Our insurance comapny came to the rescue to the tune of $19,000. I highly recommend American Family. Yes, I know there are cheaper ones out there but service is what counts when you need them.

Makes you wonder one of the two. A.) Will they renew? B.) Will they renew and at what rate?

2004 Land Yacht (gas) broken into also

Gas components for the Refrigerator, exterior access panel, broken into; all items taken. Had the unit for less then three months. It just sucks I wish there was a way to install locks on the access panel.

Welcome to the forums - too bad it isn't under better conditions.
I'm so sorry to hear about this second break in. The timing is especially rotten - just at the start of the camping season.

I agree, American Family is a great company for fast accurate claims. After a few wild claims that were paid more than fairly my premiums went up slightly. I only switched when I added a 18yo to my policy and have my RV still with American Family. They are handling the current claim on my ARGOSY quickly and fairly. JOEY
