I guess it was probably only a matter of time..
Some of you may remember that I ordered my 2017 31SL in 2016 on a factory order picking every option that was desirable. On the way to delivering the unit, the transport driver rolled the trailer in high winds in Wyoming. So we start the process over again and wait another 2 months.
I was so excited to get the Sickens Paint with the base and clear coat. It came in perfect!!. I even did a paint seal when it arrived so you can brush your teeth in the reflection.
You probably guessed by now that I screwed that up. I had a rolling cart that I somehow tucked behind the dining slide. I then decided to close the slide with the cart behind it. BANG! The lower panel on the slide bent out and cracked (small) and the quarter panel bent in.
WHAT A BONE-HEADED MOVE!
I put things back as far as I could but this is going to need a Body Shop repair to make it right. Probably will need those lower panels replaced as they are very thin and flimsy. I cant see them being straightened.There is a shop here with a fairly good reputation that has a paint booth big enough for Motorhomes and fifth-wheels.
Here is the question: Do I have the local guy do it or is there a better way? I thought at one time someone took theirs back to a factory body shop in Indiana. Seems like a very long way from Salt Lake City but I want this done correctly and my Base/Clear Paint Job back to perfect.
Who has advise for me?? I am beyond upset about this.
