Checklists -have em for a reason? (windows)

Boy did I blow it bad. Recently purchased an 04 Wildcat 29BHBP. We really love this trailer! Thought I had everything under control as far as securing for travel. Purchased private party and picked her up on a Tuesday and were camping on Thursday. After a great time camping over the July 4th weekend the DW and I cleaned it thoroughly inside and out including the screens and windows when we returned home.

Well... onto the purpose of the post. Apparently I didn't secure one of the emergency exit type windows in the bedroom. Today on the short drive to the storage lot, I damaged the open window on the freeway to the point that it will not close. It appears that the frame surrounding the window has bowed upward and is warped outward as well.

Question -should I hammer it straight and back down onto the window again then reattach the riveted slide rail assembly? Or should I just suck it up and attempt to purchase another window? Is there anyone that I can send the window to for repair? Haven't tried anywhere local yet -figured I would check here first. Hope the attached pictures are clear enough to see my question.

I have the trailer covered now and placed cardboard into the opening and taped it in. I am really bummed about this mistake! Any insight anyone has or experience with getting a new window from FR would be greatly appreciated.

Been there to, luckily seen it before I got to far down the road. Couldn't hurt to try and fix it just be careful with the glass
