GOT NEW HW296 - a few issues I could use help with

So we finally got the Hw296. Got it home after a 13.5 hr round trip yesterday. Would appreciate help with a few issues:

1. Left tail light is totally out - it is the round led type. How the heck do I get in that light? I donít see a lens that detaches. It looks like it is a single unit sealed to the trailer.

2. Marker light out - it is the led one as well. Same questions.

3. Stabilizer jack screw rod is bent. Can I just replace the rod?

Thank you for the help. I am trying not to screw up the new trailer

I can't help you with the lights but being a new rig I would see if there is a FR dealer in your area and have them warranty the stabilizer. If they hedge on doing it because you didn't buy it there ask if they will do the paper work if you do the removal and replacement that what I did with my microwave when my rig was new and the FR dealer in boise didn't want to work on it because I didn't buy from him. They were happy to do the paper work and ship it out and receive it from FR.
