Of course I called my Insurance Company(Progressive) and they stated that the insurance doesn't cover this kind of damage. So my question is, "How am I suppose to know that there is damage inside of the wall". I can understand if I noticed some kind of damage and I failed to act on same, but this??? Any suggestions??????
This is pretty common. Insurance companies will tell you that this falls under preventative maintenance. It's why it's so necessary to go over your entire rig with a fine tooth comb every once in a while.
It sucks but there's really nothing you can do. You'll likely have to pay for the repairs out of your own pocket.
I have a friend that didn't know they had a leak until they found a mushroom
literally growing out of their wall. They are at a seasonal site and didn't get out to check on their trailer much.
