Unhappy TH totaled in WVa flooding.

Have the Seismic in my sig...Got caught in record flooding in WVa, last Thursday/Friday. Water was 5' high IN my TH for approx 10 hrs. It's pathetic,,made the wife and I sick...Have Progressive insurance, full coverage due to unit only being 10 months old. I'm looking at a Designer 38FLSA or Pinnacle 38FLSA...also a Heartland 365 series and DRV Mobile Suites,, Was going to go with full body paint on the Pinnacle, but still concerned about the slide system...Would get the G rated Goodyears, so tires not an issue.

Any input on any of the above?

Jim

Agree WVDusty...a lot lost a whole lot more than I did to be sure..Born and raised in Beckley..Own property on Greenbriar River in Pence Springs. 3rd. highest flood level hit at 22' in recording history..Was raising 2 to 3' an hr...

Was more or less also asking about thoughts on the Pinnacle.

There a lot of PINNACLES out there that don't have slide issues, actually a lot JAYCO's that aren't having slide issues.

X2. Great that you have full replacement coverage. Good luck on your new purchase and hopefully, they don't drop you after this!

Wow Jim sorry to hear about your TH!! That's a shame.
The Pinnacle we bought about a month ago, we really like a lot. It is a lot different than the Mobile Suites we had. Those things are SO heavy!!
Don't miss it at all.......
Can't wait to get better tires on this thing for sure.
Good Luck with whatever you guys choose.

Take Care
Jack
