Klee, you can park the attitude, a simple answer to a simple question is plenty sufficient.

Klee, sorry for the loss of your new 'Bird. I almost cried when I saw the pictures. That was a beautiful 'Bird. I'm very glad that no one was injured.

I was also amazed at the condition of the frame. It looked to me like the only bending was at the rear, where the heaviest weight is, and that doesn't look like it is bent all that much.

It's amazing how strong these Birds are, it went down a very deep ravine, and according to a truck driver that stopped it was literally airborne, so I can only imagine the impact, and your right, I agree, it seems these birds are very strong indeed

By the way, I DID CRY, literally, when it happened, I was shocked and scared, I was so weak I passed out, then I thanked God I was OK and not inside going to the bathroom!!

Wow, I am so sorry Klee!! I still can't believe it...

You had a nice bird. It will take some time to get over your loss. Time heals though and hopefully you'll find a coach just as nice. Keep looking forward!

Klee I did not realize there are 2 threads on the crash and I just made a post on the other one. I apologize and did not realize you were parked with the park brake on. The answer to the problem has already been given it was the park brakes that did not hold. Am not sure whether the 95 BMC had manual or automatic slack adjusters but in any case you need to check each of them occasionally to make sure they are still working and adjusted correctly. Doesnt matter what the pressure is to the park brakes if they are not adjusted correctly they will not hold. Had it happen to me. Found mine were not working correctly on a trip and pulled into a truck repair facility on a major HW in the south and asked them to adjust the slackd adjiusters. Took a your fellow about 1/2 hour and as I pulled away I stopped to test them. STILL BAD! Went back and the your fellow had gone on a over he road truck call. The supervisor went down in the pit to check them and came back up shaking his head. The young fellow had not even touched them. Supervisor called him up on the mobil phone and told him to come back in he was fired. Supervisor told me his liability would have increased if I had an accident and really hurt someone.
