274DBH Awning replacement cost?

Hello folks! We (meaning my DH) had an accident over the weekend on our first trip of the season and broke the awning on our 274DBH. Mechanically it still works but one support is broken and therefore 1) it doesn't roll up evenly 2) the LED light strip pulled off from underneath 3) When it opens it end up bending UP...it's awful. the insur company has cleared the claim and will reimburse us (minus deductible of course). But it may take months for them to find a third party estimator and therefore the reimbursement may not happen until a few months down the road. We're prepared for worst csae scenario that the entire thing will need to be replaced since it was yanked and the other side may be out of whack too. We of course have calls in to RV repair places but are anxiously awaiting return calls with estimates. Has anyone else had to replace their entire awning and (date I ask) how much it was? *gulp*

I was in Yuma and left my awning out on windy day. It cost me $380 for a 16í awning(electric) installed. Guy had a truck full of arms and parts like you need.
