Please forgive me as I don't know all the terms and parts of my 5th wheel despite owning it for 7 years.
On Friday as we were pulling our camper (2007? Wildcat) to our favorite campground where we have a site booked till the middle of August we noticed that the camper was getting closer and closer to the bed of our truck (F350 dually). When we finally pulled into our site our camper was actually rubbing on the truck and we have a nice big gouge in the rubber of our bed protector. We got it all set and unhitched and OMG! what we found was horrifying! Keep in mind we had our 3 children (ages 4, 10, and 15 and our 2 dogs) with us. I am so glad we are all here alive and well as this could have been bad.
Without further ado here's the pic (someone will have to help me out with terminology) of the hitch box?:
You can see the metal has sheered right off. Now what? Who is responsible for this? We can't even pull this out of our site now. I will contact Forest River tomorrow (Monday) and pray that they can help us.
