Left the WH running on propane while heading down the road. That's my guess. Next ?

Propane tank and trailer frame are the only items fire fighters saved ,, maybe hot brakes

Looks like they got the TV unhitched before it got scorched too.
Brand new and shortly after purchase..hmm what would be the cause?

No indication this is a new trailer. Could be a derelict intended as a deer shack and just oozing LP in the cabin -- beyond derelict now.

Everything is automatically insured when I buy it, even before I telephone USAA. Have no clue in this case, of course.

Really need to not brew meth on the road but it's done all the time.

Bearing seize... haven't heard of LP caused fire from WH or Fridge on the road unless a rig is old old 35 years old or Uncle Bob rigged something.

It is believed the TV insurance covers anything that is hitched to it.

Uhh yeah, kinda sorta. That's why they invented small print and also a disclaimer that this written policy isn't necessarily exclusive and all inclusive or provisions or disallowed items. In other words they still have the right to make it up as they go along.

My Progressive supposedly covers what I am towing, and somehow one of the Good Sam things we signed on for covers your TV if it runs out of gas, flat tire, need a tow, mechanical issues.... OK I will believe i when I get paid. It's good to think about, but I don't trust any of them. I read more on here about the surprises people had when insurance said that really wasn't covered or doesn't apply.
