Hopefully someone here can help with your question.

Long story short, I dented my Dodge Ram right behind the left rear door and proceeded to put a pretty good "bump" into the front left corner of our new 5th Wheel (pics included).

Probably alot of us could give good advise, but its hard to really tell much of anything from the pics posted. Much better pics in good light ( sunny days make terrible pics) would help op get the answers he seek.

For what its worth.....no truck or trailer can turn 180 together....its impossible.
Now 90 or 80-90 is possible with some trucks and SOME campers.

Lol. I don't know if anyone else caught the 180 in the title

Sorry to hear about your learning experience. Why not have it repaired on your insurance or if you were referring to a temp fix good quality duct tape with seal it until you get back. There may be many other things to try duck it my emergency go to product.

X2 on having things repaired, you will feel much better once it's done. We have all done dumb things, mine was during unhooking, for some stupid reason ( I blame the DW) I closed my tailgate and pulled forward, did not do bad damage got lucky.

Of more concern is that your hitch is supposed to let you make this turn, I Would have someone look at it to make sure it is not malfunctioning or installed wrong. Welcome to the world of RVing.
