You first assess the damage, it’s bad. There is a big piece of the wheel well missing, along with torn skirting. You see fluid leaking, which leads you to discover a huge hole in the trailer floor. The blowout has torn through a water line, a drain pipe and also damaged some electrical components.
Your wife and one of your kids gets out to survey the damage, but in your frustration you lash out at them. “GET BACK IN THE TRUCK!” you scream, interspersed with expletives. Their hopes of spending time with dad, the family, together, is dashed and now becomes a painful memory.
You know what happens next, the vacation is over, and the headache begins. The trailer goes to the shop, you haggle with your insurance provider, and they raise your premium. The trailer is out of commission during peak of RVing season, and you think back to reading this page and how all of this could have been completely avoided.
