We had a tire blow on our 2013 and had to replace the lower skirting, last June. We did what Edd505 did to repair his. We did not have to take of the black strip. Just carefully lifted it up to remove the metal skirt. It was a quick 45 min. job. Taking it off, and replacing it. We also had to put on the decals on the new skirt. Very easy to do.

I hope the rest of the repair goes as well as replacing the lower skirting panel.
When the tire blew it rapped around the gusset welded to the frame, which ripped the bolt going through the floor out of the floor and bent the gusset up. the sheet metal panel attached to the bottom of the floor forming the top of the wheel was also literally wadded up above the tire that blew. So that panel has to come out. The fabric and insulation that was above the sheet metal was also torn up so that has to be repaired as well.
This will keep me busy for awhile. Although I just found out from my dealer that I won't be able to get the replacement skirting panel for at least a month due to supplier changes at Jayco. So?
I had made temporary repairs when the tire blew, so I guess that will have to do for now. The skirting is the first thing to come off to start the repair, and I hate to do and redo a project.

I didn't get the wheel well damage but the insulation got torn under the 5W. I found the fiber board at a local RV repair and they are the ones that said to cut a piece to cover the hole left by the blowout and use the aluminum tape to hold it in place. I did the seams all around then covered it all with another layer of tape. Please get some pictures as you do the repair Good luck.
