I did not "winterize" the turboflush and the fitting cracked.
I wonder if something like that could be mounted below the floor line?

I saw no staining on the molding. the sofa base and cabinets, are they just stained or rotted? these are the components on which you build your case.
Interesting. I still have the vinyl sheet with all the mold under it. I also kept the large piece of board with the wet insulation on it. Everything else camp out like wood chips.

The sofa base and everything above the vinyl is fine. The reason it is toast is it fell apart when removing it- it was poorly constructed.

as I said before. do no more work. let the adjuster come have a look. get good pics of all above the floor line and below. the molding shows no water above. check local shops there to see if any have done this repair. small guys who might not even have a RV sales facility. I try to schedule for the winter to keep staff on. it would be good to have a local advocate. ill dig for a state farm claim. the floors Ive done the people are keeping. havent had one sale im aware of. you shown due diligence. what is full coverage for? this is a catastophic event...

Yes, cover on all winter. Looks like adjuster will be here Wednesday. It has been raining since last night. Afraid to go check the camper.

I would be vary surprised if your insurance company will cover water damage, from a roof or window leak. Most companies will tell you that it falls under maintenance, and it is not covered. I had two friends that had the same problem you have, and that’s what they were told. I wish you luck with your claim !!

Mom you mentioned that you stored the trailer at the place that did the maintenance, was there any written agreement that they would be accountable for any damages occurring while they had it on their property?

Just throwing this out there...
