It has been a couple of months trying to work through the insurance hoops and turns.
First, it was weeks before access to Becca’s ashes was available. A fence was erected around the destroyed storage barn and limited access prevented getting into the area for pictures. Also, the roof that collapsed on the RVs in the barn had to be removed to make the remains visible.
Next, the insurance company wanted to have their adjuster view the site and confirm total loss (he never showed up). I eventually worked my way into the secured area, took pictures once the roof was removed, and emailed them to the home office agent.
Finally, the insurance agent (after taking a few days off over Thanksgiving) had to pass along our total loss claim to the total loss processor. He, in turn, had to send the information along to a replacement specialist.
Today, I think, we might have our lien settled for Becca. That is if the check arrives in a timely manner. You’d think with technology that insurance companies could transmit funds electronically with the click of a button. No, no, they cut and mail checks.
Our dealer for the replacement Outback travel trailer has been days attempting to put together a final price (we had some unique options added to the standard trailer). I’ve been in contact numerous times since our walkthrough of the Keystone 278URL.
So, the fire destroyed Becca November 6. It will be at least mid-January before everything is finalized – if we’re lucky.
Ho, Ho, Ho
