Default Girard wind sensor

Does anyone know the part number for the Girard wind sensor unit. Low limbs broke the plastic cups and the entire body off of the Coach, so I assume I need the whole unit.

Jim Brookshire built a "cage" around his wind cups,a tree limb deflector.

Mine still functions and I would like it to stay that way. The cage is a good idea. What about something to keep it from spinning when going down the road? Anybody ever do that?

After my second limb collision, I created some CAD drawings and built a new mount and guard that are shown in the photos. The stainless steel sheet metal was laser cut for me by a local vendor. I did the bending in my workshop. It wasn't an inexpensive fix but a Bluebird deserves the best!

After my third tree limb hit, and some $60 apiece, now about double that, if I remember right from Girard, I decided since I would never, ever leave my coach and trust that the sensor will protect my awning, I didn't replace it. Why have something you will never use!
