Red face Short Bed Truck can't 180 degrees

OK, before anyone laughs so hard that they have to have hernia surgery let me just say we were on our "maiden voyage" with our new Flagstaff Super Lite 5th Wheel. Everything that I had read or seen said that I could "jack knife" it into a tight spot - don't believe what you read - only believe what you do, right? 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). My question: Can I simply seal it good (my ego won't ever be the same, which is probably a good thing), or do I need something more?

I just don't believe I would have told anyone about that.

everyone on here would tell you to get a slider for a short bed. Now you know why.

With a slider, the dents are just farther up on the truck.

Doesn't that Flagstaff 5er come with the Reese Revolution pin box? Did you not have it engaged?
