Roof Update - Final;ly Repaired

Hooray! After 2 months we got our coach back today with a new roof. And it's the first rainy weekend in months! Kudos to Discount RV in Lakeside, CA for their efforts. The roof looks great, and the fiberglass repairs are invisible. Here's hoping for a few uneventful months if RVing. We also replaced our dead rearview camera with a new ccd unit from Tadi Brothers. It looks great.

Sgt, that is great news! I saw this thread a little late to share a similar experience with high winds in my 98 Chieftain. I was told by Winnebago that they and others make fiberglass roof replacement in rolls, easily, but labor intense.
You may already know this, but your downfall came when the awning busted free. When the wind pulled on the awning, probably creating a sail, it flexed the sidewall away from the roof. That broke the calking seal between the roof and the J channel. It was over when you were cleaning up the mess from loosing the awning.

Hi Rkh, Thank you for your comments. That sidewall flex may be the cause of a couple of broken brackets anchoring the upper cabinets to the wall. I noticed some new interior noises while test driving and found a couple of loose shelves inside the cabinet. When I looked closer, I noticed that small plastic anchors holding the shelves up and the cabinet to the wall were broken. I'm going to have the repair shop check that this week.

Just saw this post, I would like to recommend to always use Velcro wrap ties around the vertical awning posts while traveling. I've had friends that the awning would open going down the road. and catch signs and such destroying the sides of their motor homes. I've used the Velcro ties on the motorhome and the cargo trailer since day one. Piece of mind knowing I've down all I can to prevent it opening while driving down the street.

Velcro ties do nothing for keeping the wind from unrolling the awning and pulling it out and unrolling the roller. You have to lock the roller from turning. The supports can stay up against the trailer or MH and the awning can still pull out and unroll. It's been empathized several times in other threads

Do the "slide" awings have locks to keep them from ballooning out under high winds? If not, do you guys have a locking method?

First report this to the insurance company. They may have a repair facility to refer you to, then go to the facility and see what they have to say. Good luck

Good advice, except the OP has already had the RV repairs done.
