Hi Everyone -

New to the forum but not new to the reviews part. Just a quick question. We recently stayed at very nice park only to have our coach scratched and scraped by tree branches that had not been trimmed at the site we were assigned. The owner has not contacted us to even discuss this and I am aware that by signing in we also signed a damage waiver which is common in most all parks. However my feelings on this are that if I back up into a rock or something else because I wasn't paying attention or didn't get out to check before backing up, etc. then that is on me. However when one is attempting to back into a narrow space lined with large boulders on each side and paying close attention to them, and a large Pine tree has low hanging branches that I didn't see and that had not been trimmed in a long time scratches the top side of the d, then I would think the park's insurance should cover this? We had to have the attendants come over and trim several branches so we could get out without incurring further damages. I would think at the very least the owner/s should call and discuss this with us. But they haven't and when I call the staff keeps giving me excuses about the owner's being gone or too busy, etc. This to me is BS and I feel it is wrong. Any input from you folks as to how you feel about something like this happening would be appreciated. And yes, I do know how to back up a Class A motorhome and have never had a problem like this in any other park. Thanks for reading this. I am posting a review of this park and it won't be very good..............
