Yep, had three cross-members with gussets from one side to the other installed. Also, metal plates had to welded over the area with the cracks.

Fixed Frame!

An update on our NuWa Snowbird by PI! Ralph and his team from PI fixed our frame. From the pics I am quite impressed with how they fixed the frame. I do not think we will have issues with the frame again! Thanks to Ralph and the welders from Peterson industries! As for the cost well we are fortunate that our insurance covered the repairs! Will be picking our Snowbird up this coming Monday! What a Christmas present!!!
