Last Night Out Damage

We were completing a 14 day 3280 mile trip through Michigan, the UP, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Il and KY and were on the way home. Our last night out, about 250 miles from home we had a "HIT". At6:12 AM on a Sunday morning we were awakened by an impact on the trailer. Of course we jumped up, checked on the grandson who was in the bunk room and then went outside. It seems that a Class A in a rush to get an early start did not take his awning in. The front end of his awning impacted the rear of our Tracer! It left a finger tip size hole and apparently broke his awning motor since he could not bring it in electrically. I helped him take it in manually. Who would have thought it?? Now to take it in for an estimate to get the hole repaired and wait , wait, wait.

Looking Forward to Completing This Map Soon !

Sometimes things just seem to jump out when least expected. When it happens to me I blame it on gremlins as DW says she's not taking the blame for anything.

I know I had nothing to do with it.

Hope you get it fixed soon, until then just slap some gorilla tape on it to prevent water intrusion.
