On-Site Awning Service, Lynchburg, VA?

We woke up this morning to the horrible sound of our awning collapsing! I thought that this would never happen because we have one that should come in when the wind blows hard. Well, apparently the rain collecting in the awning got so heavy that it collapsed the arm on one side, even though the awning was canted to spill the rain. Whatever...damage done. But we are at the TT outside of Lynchburg and we don't have any info about who we might call to remove the awning. Any ideas????

Thanks Mike. We were able to remove the broken arm and secure the rest of the awning assembly to the rig. We stopped at a repair place in Richmond, but they are so busy they wont be able to get to it for almost a month. But the repair guy said that our jury-rig looked like it would hold for a while, so were looking towards getting an appointment for a replacement a few weeks from now, further along our itinerary in Northwestern NJ, where we can hold up for a few weeks. Anybody have a full-service RV repair place they can recommend in that area (or any place you would warn us off from)? A little more adventure on this trip than I was expecting :/
