Maybe not claimable without a police report.
Maybe not claimable since its an accessory(I think my insurance doesn't cover aftermariet roof racks)
I drove off with my slide open once(about 100 feet. I did a walk around. Electrical guy put it out while I was diddling with something under the dash. He exited, I drove off)
Maybe the op drove off with the awning out(plausible and more likely)
Damage to property he didn't own...leaving the scene of an accident...pieces of Lord-knows-what left in the road. Screws, brackets, motors.....
There is a societal obligation to act intelligently.
I was in Sedona last year I saw a class c start driving from his camp site with awning fully extended I start yelling but he couldnít hear me hit a tree came back and start cutting felt bad for him. It was a manual awning. Maybe too many beers. Maybe not. One time I start driving with the electric cord plugged in. Lol , things happen.
