I was told one time that 70% of current value is the bogey for totalling.

SOP to pay the first estimate, and then assess supplemental estimate for hidden damage. Documenting everything in emails, CC to your ins. agent, is a good idea. We went through this last year when our tow vehicle was rear-ended, and the hidden damage was substantial, resulting in a verdict of "totaled" weeks down the road. Similar to other comments, the ins. co. also extended our rental car, and when that ran out [long story -- not their fault], Enterprise let us extend the rental on our dime for the same low daily rate.

The entire process was frustrating, but in the end we got a new tow vehicle and were satisfied with the payout for the old one.

Good luck, and have a good weekend!

Done, and I guess I'll take the batts out and bring them home. I have 100w solar, but if there is a lot of snow, could be a problem.

I suggest turning off the solar panel isolation switch if the batteries are removed so the wires are not electrically hot in the battery compartment.

Yup, will do. I'll have to tape off the cable ends as well as I would bet they'll plug in shore power while working on it.

Well, they brought it into the shop on 12/20, worked on it on the 20th and 21st, then closed the shop for the Christmas break. Should finish up on 1/2. At least it's been inside for awhile. Now I just have to find a hole in the salt spreading weather to go get it. I have a bit of separation anxiety!

Well, arrived at the terraport today. Chris pulled it out Friday before he left. Got it ready to pull home, get a nap after a few at the bar, and take her home. The repairs look fine and they treated me really well with the "no longer available" Maxxair covers. The factory service center is awesome.

Glad to hear all is well. When JC repaired our trailer there was about a 2+ month wait to get in for sheet metal work. They were great through the whole repair process.

Only issue we had was with trying to get the insurance adjuster to JC to look at the trailer. When he finally showed up, JC told him they didn't have my trailer!!

When the adjuster called and told me that.....long story. I had originally sent pics of the damage to Chris, and he had sent me a preliminary quote. I ended up sending that quote and my pics to the insurance company, which is what they used.
