Cracked fender brace
 
1 Attachment(s)
So, is this type of aluminum commonly found somewhere?

Attachment 141907

That's a brace supporting the fender over the wheels on the left (dinette) slide on my 2016 Evo T2050. Driving home from camp tonight, I noticed that the fender was waving in the breeze a bit. When I got home I realized that the brace has a stress crack in the bend at the top.

So, is this a commonly available item? Where might I find it?

Thanks in advance.

I fashioned one from a piece of heavier aluminum stock that I purchased at home Depot.

Thanks for your suggestion. I emailed the same photo to my RV repair guy, who invited me over to the shop to pick something from his pile of scrap aluminum. I brought a piece home, hacksawed it to length, put in the 90-degree bend with some vice grips, drilled the appropriate screw holes and all is good, at no cost other than my time.
