Damage to Fiberglass panel around hitch on fifthwheel

The panel that surrounds the fifth wheel came loose from the attached trim and sustained damage on our last road trip. Is this a repair that we should try ourselves? If so, where can we buy the fiberglass panels? My husband is a do-it-yourselfer, but I wasn't sure if this might not be beyond our scope.

I have attached a photo of the area that is damaged. We had to put tape on it for the trip home to keep it from getting worse.

Thanks for any suggestions

Is your RV still under warranty? If so, I would have that checked out. I would be suspicious that the problem is greater than a panel coming loose, like water intrusion.

No warranty and we suspect water also, perhaps from an earlier time. We really are looking to trade, but need to repair this damage before upgrading.
