Power lines are usually 23 ft, that being said not.
My wife and I got detoured outside Texarkana on a secondary highway and every semi in front of us was hitting the power lines in one small town. The truck in front of us caught the line on the down swing and no more line.
Got to hate it when sh&t happens.

Sorry to see that happen. Looking at the pictures of the roof and sign, it looks as if it just caught the rubber. As Maxwell Smart used to say; "missed it by that much". At least you got away with just rubber damage & no wood or fiberglass to repair, still a good reminder for all of us to be aware of all dimensions - width, length, and height. Something that was drilled into us when I drive big trucks years ago.

Spray on Rhino Liner for RV roof? Hmmmm. I always wondered why the RV roofs were so thin. I found out later they need to flex and more importantly stretch and contract with the winter to summer temp differences. 2nd was lightweight and cost limits. A spray on roof would be a beeyaatch to replace! One would need new wood pieces also. And getting at the screws on the old wood, would be a pita!

Several years ago I was in a gas station (in car) - there was a big class C filling his tank. He finished, pulled away from the tank, turned too soon and took out the pump! Those long overhangs are treacherous!!

Yeah, like a clean roof would have prevented your disaster.

I have learned that any accident that does not end in injury should be chalked up to live and learn. I am convinced that attitude has saved me from an ulcer, because I sure can mess some stuff up.

Thanks for sharing, those are the pictures that will make me and others look twice before we pull into unknown parking lots.
