We had that piece replaced while we were in Goshen. Actually, two pieces...the curved piece of metal that forms the skirt of the trailer, and an inside piece that closes up the end closest to the right front wheel. Maybe 12 screws to remove and reinstall the first piece. You have to take off the trim strip where the white side and the colored (in our case, brown) radius piece join. Pull out the center rubber strip and expose the screws in the trim...remove those screws and the screws on the bottom side to take the damaged section of metal out.
After watching the techs repair ours in Goshen, I think I could do it pretty easily.
