Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.

We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

Storms & Lightening

I am not sure where this post goes but here is what happened to one of the campworkers at the Koa.  They live by the lake here full time in an rv....this past wk we had a bad storm with lots of lightening and it just happened to strike they're rig.  Did they have a surge protector "Yes" however with a direct hit they lost everything electrical in the rig.  They own the land the rig was on and have a water well the pump was also fried form it. I guess insurance will cover most as soon as they fax estimates. They did disconnect theyre computer and moved it to the front of the fiver of which I was told it can jump if its close by.... In a situtation such as this I would think it would be the same as lightening hitting your own home.  I am wondering if anyone has had this happen to them?
