Pics of the damage...

I finally made myself go look at it again. I will be calling a recommended repair facility tomorrow. It sure looks bad to me, but as you all have said, it can be fixed.....

Darn! That's the same color paint that I had on one of my bay doors, and the dent looks exactly like that one. Well, maybe a little longer.

I'd like to be the guy that invented that color paint. Quite a market.

Thats not a big deal. If you have insurance they should pay for it.

Aw thatís too bad :(. You must feel terrible and pretty mad at the hubby, but go easy on him. I bet he feels much worse than you do.

That is not bad damage at all. It will be easily repaired. Didn't even knock the door out of alignment. You will eventually forget which door it was.

OMG, DH gave our new Grand Junction 5ver a mouse hole behind the tongue on Sat. This was our first time driving, we went to an empty car dealership to practice. All went well until it came time to get in driveway which is 2 acres long. I was outside guiding him in, the truck bed came up, the 5ver went down on the bed side and crunch. I just sank to the ground, didn't yell at him for it, figure he feels bad enough as it is. He did say I bet you can't wait to tell all your peeps (you guys) what I did.

I'm certainly glad you did not yell at him, being the guide person I'm thinking it falls on your shoulders

Those are just some of the things you are both going to learn from experience or by doing a ton of reading here to learn from the mistakes of others.

No matter how it's done and certainly not on purpose.

Ahhhh! The first time out......I remember it fondly. I took out our basement furnace door on a rock when I was re-positioning the RV. First time out,first mishap. Reminds me of the Monty Python movie the Holy Grail. "Nothing but a fleshwound"! I kept saying to my wife. "No lives were lost"! Always good to get the first one over with early.

After reading this thread, I feel better now.

Only cost $1,000.00 to fix one door and I took it off for them!

I wish they would make softer concrete!

In my defense, I told him to stop and what situation was, HE continued to pull forward and "OUCH"....just saying. Also of note, we raised the hitch plate!

Hmmm. I've done worse, except it wasn't to my rig. 20 years ago I was test driving what I'm guessing now must have been a 36 to 38' used pusher in the late spring. There were still large snowbanks at the corners and I had zero big rig driving experience. Hey, I didn't know there was a gynormous rock hidden in that big snowbank right up next to the dealer's driveway (and what were they thinking putting it there anyway?). I ripped off the last two bay doors on the passenger side. My insurance paid all but the deductible. I convinced the dealer that the placement of that rock was dumb and they didn't make me pay them the deductible either.

No, we didn't buy that rig, or any rig from that dealer. We ended up buying a new Southwind gasser - but that's another story.

OUCH! Well on the upside as you mentioned it can and I'm sure will be fixed. At least now the tension somewhat should have eased waiting for that first scratch or dent to happen. I wouldn't fret about it, get her fixed and enjoy somemore traveling. Be safe and Happy Motoring!!!!

I hope you realize my post was in jest, I could not afford to point fingers in this game of oops.

I'm beginning to think we need our own oops forum
