Keep after these guys and if the insurance company does not respond, go back to the dealer and tell them they steered you to the wrong company (negligent referral) and they should make good on it. They will absolutely love to hear from you. you could tell them you trusted them and you are sure the dealer doesn't want to bad reputation; after all, you are here to help the dealer keep a good reputation. They won't believe you, but it may smooth the way if you phrase it as if you are helping them. The dealer gets a big chunk of that premium and they don't want to give it back. You can also file a complaint with the state's insurance commissioner. Insurance commissioners are often not very good at protecting customers, but that's their job and another way to keep after the insurance company.
Let us know how it works out. I am sure you are hardly the only one wanting to get your money back.
Thanks Gene for your excellent and detailed recommendations. All noted for future use as needed. As per my entry above, I'll wait two weeks to see if I receive a Reply from the President of Orlando RV One. If no answer, I'll drop in on the Dealership on a mid week, mid morning unannounced visit to see the President about my letter and request. FYI. Orlando RV One has 20 customer Complaints on file.
Below is one of them.
Problems with Product/Service
Pushed into a service contract for our camper, which we backed out of the following day and asked for refund. We purchased a 2019 Montana fifth wheel from this dealership and was talked into a extended warranty. We went home that evening and decided we didn't want the extended warranty which we emailed and called dealer to cancel. they said we would have to fill out paperwork as they couldn't change the contract for funding. This was a weekend and the contract was still in their possession at this time which we feel could of been redone and resigned without sending in any cancellation paperwork which we did. Called and emailed them several times about the check only to be told it was sent out on May 31st. It is now June 26th and the check is nowhere to be found. *o I have contacted Mark *, one of the owners only to have the finance guy say it's in the mail. Again I have contacted them several times and let voice messages to which they haven't replied. Also brought in a customer the next weekend after our purchase and they purchased with the promise of a finders fee to me to which I haven't received either.
Would like our refund check of appx $6,300.00. Stop talking in circles.

The check was already issued on this cancellation . Melissa from accounting spoke to our customer directly last Friday. Bank stated they never received check , we placed a stop-pay on the first check and issued a 2nd check last week which was sent FEDEX the bank. We have been in contact with the bank, as well."
I'll keep you posted!
