In the end, when GXV looked at the awning it turned out that it was not damaged but it had been ripped from the mounting on the side of the truck. It was reattached and no problems since then.Hey Greg, thanks for your detailed response. On my Sprinter expedition camper I have a Dometic 9500 case awing, fully electric and legless with included wind sensor. I have had a sudden gust of wind come up while camping out at Black Rock and the wind sensor closed the awning before I could respond. While it was flopping some it did fully retract and save itself. Not had any issues with it. Plus comes in black unlike Fiamma's similar F45s.
Just something for you to consider if you haven't already replaced it.
