Panel Damage, Replacements, DIY, 831RLBSS

Flagstaff 831RLBSS, have a damaged panel, between rear wheel and bumper on left side, and the panel taht goes across rear underneath the bumper. Can one order these panels from Forest River and repalce them yourself?

Parts

Our 1 week old trailer got broken into this past Sunday and I called Forest River to order some new parts and they were able to find the replacement parts. Don't expect fast service, however, they took my order and 24 hours later, I'm waiting on a call from the shipping department so I can make payment on the order. You will need the last 6 of your VIN so they can look up the parts for your unit. Try Suzanne at 547.642.0366. She is the only person in the Flagstaff Lite parts division and she will eventually call you back.

Good luck

I also replaced a panel--------

Wanderer, I damaged a (gold) panel on the right front of a 8285 WS fifth wheel for making a too sharp at a gas pump. I called my warranty contact at Forest River, supplied VIN number. The part was not cheap, was made out of aluminum, already painted. Because of size, it was truck shipped. It was rolled for the right shape, but I had to hand trim the new one for the correct fit. The old one was about 7 feet long, but the replacement was 8 feet long. My suggestion, if you have to trim the new one to fit. just lay the old one down on top of the new one, mark around the old one with a felt marker. Make sure if any trim is removed, you place the gray putty on each screw hole to stop water seep into the siding.

Good luck on the new job as sheet metal mechanic!!!!!

I thought it would be much more difficult than a phone call. Thanks for the tips.
