I wish I didn't have to pay for this.

I'm thinking I won't be able to get individual parts for the awning and I'll have to buy the whole arm for a reasonable (haha) price.

Sorry for your mis-hap. But this is one of the reasons I don't like setting up camp at night. Especially one I'm not familiar with.....

So sorry to hear. Lesson well learned for next time. I am betting there won't be a tree for 50 yards you don't have your eyes on from now on. Just glad it was not worse and nobody was injured.

I've come close to damage parking at night. I back in though as it's easier to see what is coming towards the trailer for the spotter to alert me to. I've done it where I am in and out of the truck a hundred times before it's parked. What I'd really like though is some wheel well lights to let me see the tires in the mirrors. Also if I get into trouble while backing in I just have to move back forward the way I came in. The tail swing on these big trailers can surprise you.

Hope you get it fixed up without too much more pain.

When I installed my LED reverse lights I gave serious thought to putting lights at the wheels too, and also a way to shut the TV reverse lights off.
I think I might still do it. I always think I won't be arriving in the dark anymore...then the next thing ya know.....

Sorry for the trouble - I kind of look at it like there are 2 kinds of RV'ers out there. Those who have hit something and those who are going to hit something.

At night when backing into a site it's hard to see where the wheels are. If I have my wife shine the flashlight on the wheels then she's not watching the back end. Still might get this done as I have some leftover LED strip from the awning. Just need to figure out the best way to power it.

I admit it, I plagiarized or better put I Ad Libbed a bit....

I've raced motocross for 35 years. I've always said, it's not IF you wipe out...its WHEN you wipe out.

Especially when I see parents letting their kids ride around their farm with no helmets and Yahoo's riding around like goons.

Over the years I've broken my neck, both femurs and my collar bone.
