But when a person improperly wires something then it causes damage the victim is pretty blameless here.

If a healthy limb falls out of a tree due to a storm, that's what insurance is for. But if the CG has someone cut the limb halfway and leave it hanging just to later fall on a camper, that's squarely on the CG and it's owners.

Yup..,,

Simply put, he made life financially miserable for you so you make it miserable for him. He started it, you finish it. It's the principle now, besides even though it would feel good, you can't kick his teeth in so you have to figuratively do it.

Although I have an EMS I do not feel that the op is at all responsible for the incompetence of this idiot. There is a difference between accidents and incompetence.

Here is the latest. My Father in law gave a statement to State Farm about how he denied the payment and said to put the $75 towards the repair. I also have a statement from our friend who he showed him where we needed to set up the camper, what outlet to plug in and he also told him that if we left before he got back into town to hold the check and give it to him when he saw him. My Mother in law also has a voicemail from the camp ground owners wife stating where we needed to set up the camper and also the fee to camp for 2 nights would be $75. Oh and the camper is parked at the house, too bad it will be raining all weekend.

Well State Farm has the voice mail from his wife with her stating that ____(her husband) showed ____(our friend)where to park and set up. She also said that the price for 2 nights is $75 and $40 for 1 night. The State Farm investigator said that is pretty damming evidence. They will now turn it over to the segregation team and go after him for the cost of all damages! I just hope his lawyer hears the voice mail from his wife naming him and how he showed our friend where we needed to park. His lawyer will then know her client is a lying oxygen thief!

Glad to hear they're taking care of it. Btw, it's called subrogation. (Company I work for does comp systems for all the insurance companies. I've built this process for a few of them.) Basically they're going to try everything in their power to get back the money they spent on your trailer, plus a bit extra for the effort. Insurance companies absolutely loathe giving up cash without making sure they can get somebody else to foot the bill.

Ok guys...my TT has a 30 amp hook up. One of the campgrounds we are going to later this year only has 50 amp hook ups. Is there some sort of "reducer" or something that I can buy that will allow me to hook up my 30 amp line? Thanks in advance for help!

We just did a 9 day trip that had 2 campgrounds that had 50 amp only service .....and YES.....there is a 50 amp to 30 amp jumper sold at Wal Mart, Camper World, and I am sure many RV dealers would have them too.
Ask for a 50 amp MALE to 30 amp FEMALE adapter and you will be fixed up friend.

Awesome! Thanks for the tip. We are currently camping out at Fort Pickens for the Blue Angels. I'll go pick one up as soon as we get back home.
