Oh I'm not dismissing it. They are.
The tank was "My" fault. I used the regulator, hooked the hose up and started filling the tank as I continued packing. Apparently the hose can outflow the vent, because a few minutes later I heard the frame for the fresh tank give out. It ended up being pressurized because water couldn't get out fast enough. So I built a valve that allows me to cut the flow rate. It takes forever to fill now, but at least that won't happen again.
I have no idea how the primary frame bent. The right rear spring mount is bent outwards at about a 20* angle. In my ownership it's not seen a hard hit, it's not run over anything. The rail is straight, it's like something hit it from the side kicking the perch out. It's got the spring pack misaligned, but they say it's not detrimental. Right. It's because the tires are wearing nicely, that's their only defense of their action.
I'm going to write out something basically stating it won't be an issue and that they assure and assume it will never cause a problem. The service and general manager will sign it before I leave.
But odds are I'll just fix that myself too. Framework isn't hard, just a matter of pressure and heat.
