Has anyone done repair work to this under coach framework?
yes i had it done once. on a day at the end of 2012, i was driving my rig to an engine shop for an estimate of r/t the cracked manifold. the place was very tight, i didn't see a metal pipe about half a foot tall extruding out of ground in the corner and made the turn. dragging, dragging, boom. i came out and noticed the cross bar in front of the rear axle in passenger side being pulled off at the outer end from the frame...
story short... in next few days i went to hd and got the square tubing, one was 1" at sides another was 1.5" (?) and slid one into another to double up the strength. found a guy on craigslist and welded it up. i sprayed the rubberized under coating afteward...
not a big thing. technically i should have disconnected the battery terminals as whenever you weld something on rv there could be a higher voltage or bigger current going on, thus disconnecting the terminals are recommended. i didn't do it but went ok, no any damages. another thing important is to spray the under coating afterward.
best of luck!
