Hail Damage

We were caught out in a storm ystdy in MI which peppered us with 1/2 dollar size hail. Both roof vent covers were demolished and a lotta small dents in the hood. We're on vacation and needed some triage. Turns out covers are readily available and aside from being a b%^$# to change solved problem 1. Problem 2 is cosmetic and can wait our return from vacation and no other problems were apparent, but its a plastic roof and the ease with which the hail did in the covers makes me worry for the roof. Anyone with comments or experience?

The vent lids are usually always the first thing to go. To solve the problem in the future, the addition of vent covers are great. As for the roof itself, I would think it should be fine.

We had quarter size hail several months ago and like you; hood dents, fridge vent cover damage,lots of dents along the roof edges and the shower skylight cracked. We have the vent covers, so no damage there. Did develop a water leak in the front cap, but couldn't find an obvious source. I cleaned and checked all the caulking and resealed it.

Thanks Guys

I feel a little better. Camping World had a lid they claimed to be unbreakable. We'll see. The shower skylight appears to have survived intact, as did the forward most powered fan-filled vent cover.

Probably okay but I would inspect the roof carefully for any fine cracks in the roof fiberglass surface. Damage may be hard to see from the top.
