I've never heard of anything like that, but it is possible. I hope the insurance company treats you well!

I've heard of that one other time, but the camper took a direct hit that time. Good luck with your insurance company. I'm sure they will total it.

I have to replace all electronics on a couple of boats in the marina. They were next to each other when lightning struck and fried the lot. 20.000 bucks worth of damage. had it happen to my sailboat a few years ago as well while I was on board. It sure does get ones attention. The insurance should pay up for that though.


I do all my own stunts ..... but never intentionally

I had a car get struck by lightning once. It does bizarre stuff. The engine ran for about 5 minutes after it was stuck, and then the injectors were stuck open. The radio worked, but there was no sound from the speakers. The instrument cluster went crazy too.

Had lightning come in the house on a phone line, jump from the box where the line came in across the foot f the bed and turn on the radio on a clock radio. Big loud bang and a ball of blue went across the foot of the bed, the phone line was on one side of the room and the clock radio was directly across from it. After it got hit you couldn’t turn the radio off.

There used to be a transformer on an electric poll down the road a little ways and it got hit many times by lightning. Whenever it got hit it would ring our phone one time, if you heard just one ring you knew the transformer got hit. The local lineman got real good at changing that one out.
