Rock Insurance could not get anyone to help. I am 71. It is an auto awning and this shocked me. I had to cut it loose take it off the unit and leave it where it fell. It was torn to pieces and too large to transport. Any advice and how do you think my insurance will handle it? Has this happened to anyone? PS. An RV me passed me a few seconds later and his awning came loose. Go figure.
This is actually a pretty common thing if you read through the treads.
My manual CareFree awning was torn off on the way to Gateway for a race. This was after Caledonia RV did three repairs to the awning.
I had Camping world install a new electric awning
You would think that with a new install I would have been good to go, but no
they did a poor install and that one almost feel off also
So when you get yours repaired make sure they anchor it correctly to the Motor Home.
It is a sad thing that the quality of repairs have to be watch so closely.
Not sure how the insurance will treat it. What is your deductible? It many not be worth claiming it.
