Sorry about your issue. ...

Goes to show you these are stabilizers are NOT jacks , everybody should learn from this.

You'll most likely have to buy a whole new one.

Either replace or bring bent piece to a welding shop to get straighten and reinforced by welding side plates. See dealer for replacement cost.

I think fonzie has it. If you go to a dealer, you're likely looking at a complete replacement. If you go to a local welder, you can probably repair it.

Mind if we ask how this happened?

I did it while unhooking the trailer after leveling ... I didn't even think about raising the rear jacks during the unhooking process.

all my bad!

Take the one leg off, cut it in two at the bend, straighten the sides and have it re-welded together. 30 minute repair after removing.

After seeing these, I do think I will remove mine while they're still straight and reinforce them. Not that hard to do plus it will put more wt on the rear and take some off the pin.
