I would really appreciate it if you would all take another look at the topics here and write your posts. For whatever reason, I guess I just didn’t realize I had to approve comments made here. I will try to add posts that I have received about the topics on this page and I promise to watch more closely. Thank you very much.
Here’s a quick question for anyone out there.
Do you, or can you use and depend on manufacturer part numbers for Recreational Vehicle products, from the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer)?
A big problem I see with RVs is roof repair, especially as insurance claims. Most shops always want to replace the entire roof, whenever there’s any damage. What do you think?
Welcome to my new blog that I’ll just call the Crash Site. If you have any questions regarding estimating, repairing, repair techniques or process, or repair parts, this is the place to ask. If I don’t have the answers, I know who does.
I am associated with both the national RV Dealers Association as well as the RV Industry Association. I work closely with both of them in technician training.
I can answer a lot of questions for you, but if they get involved, I may have to refer you to my consulting business. I hope you like this blog and visit often. I’ll do my best to keep you informed.
How you doin? Back in the early seventies, I started working at a Cleveland, Ohio area RV dealer. Early on I learned that there was a huge lack of technical repair information. I went on to open my own repair shop and eventually became a full blown RV dealer.
I found my niche performing body repairs, mostly insurance claims. I connected with some major insurers of RVs and realized that I had a lot of information they needed, especially estimating information. So, I started researching and writing and in 1984, the RV Damage repair Estimator was born.
Today, hundreds of Insurance adjusters and RV dealers use the estimator. I’m constantly studying and updating repair techniques, product information and pricing. Check out my entire website at www.rvresource.com.
