Body damage from tire blow out

Has anyone removed the lower panel for the slide to repair for body damages from Chinese tire blow out?
Wondered how the trim piece comes off an back on?

Just see if you could reach in behind and push it back out. I could do it if I had to on our TT. It is very thin aluminum on our 246 RKS. I think trying to remove that part and put it back on would be a head ache.

Just take a roller from the inside, that's how I did the JayFeather lower panels.
My bright Son in Law hit the panels a few times with the lawnmower.

Insurance company will pay to have the J-wrap replaced. Been through it before. Mine was much worse.

I don't recall. It was a couple years ago on a Forest River unit. Tire blew and wipped out the J-wrap, fender skirt and the insulation and underbelly barrier. Also the trim around the step. Insurance paid for it and a local dealer did the repairs.

lol, just had 2 ranier's go within a week, 1 with radial separation, one flat while driving. 10,000 miles, took 3rd one with same mileage and age off and a 4th same age, but about 5000 miles (was a spare for one that took a nail), all just over 2 years old, I was going to replace them next spring..... Put 4 new Noble brand load range E tires on.
