crumpled rear panel

Sometime this past week, while we were gone, something or someone bumped against our rear lower panel just behind the wheel opening. The impact created a small indentation and the pressure inward caused the support arm to created two small outward indentations.

Probably not worth an insurance claim but I would like to get them taken out and the panel reasonable smooth again. Any ideas? Can an RV facility come out and work on a panel attached to the trailer?

We are full-time and dont have options to leave the unit for a week or so?

Thanks for any thoughts on this.

Rick

Will replacing the support solve the problem?

Not sure. I just hope that an RV or body shop could some how remove the minor indentations.

Look up a paint less auto body guy, they can work wonders on getting out small dents without painting or bondo. It would be worth a try to have one look at it.
