Good Luck.
That's what I figure too. My MIL found out what company has been contracted to do that road work in that area but I doubt anything can be done. I'll pass that info on to my insurance and let them run that rabbit hole if they choose. I talked to my insurance yesterday and I have a $250 deductible so I'll take it, I guess.
Just glad I was not on a motorcycle when that truck met me!

Just one of MANY reasons I'm getting a video camera for my MH. Video silences many doubters.

Hope the OP can recover his deductible.

Think the name of the thread should have been "Massive amount of rocks hit windshield" as a massive rock would have taken the windshield OUT.

Sorry for your misfortune, hope the insurance co. takes care of it.

I had a large semi truck kick up a rock and crack the windshield on my Solera last year. The crack enlarged very quickly and I needed to have the windshield replaced. Safelite Glass came to my camp site in the Los Angeles area and replaced my windshield. I didn't go thru my insurance co when I was realized that it wouldn't cost that much to replace. I don't remember the amount, but it was less than $300. Safelite is nation wide I believe.

Our windshield took about 8 huge hits causing 3 decent sized spider cracks and a crack that starts at the window edge below the drivers wiper and goes up about 8 inches. Wow that was startling!
That DOT driver would have killed a motorcyclist for sure.

So I'll be contacting our insurance about that. Is a windshield usually covered under comprehensive on insurance?
That's Crazy.....Sorry for your damage. This is where a dash cam would come in handy.

LOL that's funny.

One of my word pet peeves is the misuse of Fewer/More and Less/More! What they needed was FEWER rocks!!! LESS rocks would have also been good if they could get them small enough (sand?)!

I have a friend who owns a pretty good sized construction company here in AR..we have talked about that. They are pretty diligent about sweeping the rear of the truck...I wonder why??? This wasn't the case here obviously, but you have to "prove" it came from the truck and not the road.

Happened to us in Illinois last year. Big dump truck in a hurry passed us and left us a present on our windshield. Our insurance covered it under the comprehensive part.

FYI. Windshield repair/replacement may count as an insurance claim. It did for us in Florida - true, no deductible but a claim. Had insurance through Good Sam dropped them after 2 yrs- yr 2 raised 10% this yr 40% with no incidence or tickets other than windshield on car. In search for new insurance more than 1 company told us we had previous claim for under $400- "the windshield".
