Repairing blown tire damage

I getting ready to repair the damage done to our 5th wheel by a blown tire and have a question.
The dark brown radius metal skirting was damaged and needs to be replaced, my question pertains to the black trim strip that runs along the side of the trailer covering the seam where the radius skirting and the fiberglas join. It appears that this black trim strip snaps onto a channel that is actually holding the skirting in place. Can I just pry the top black strip off of the channel and then snap it back in place once the repair has been made or will this trim strip covering be damaged and need to be replaced?
Thanks, Bill

The black trim piece I am referring to is located at the top edge of the dark brown radius skirting.

no that is not the way the strip works. it is a u shaped strip that is one piece. when installed it starts out sort of L shaped with the L facing top. then it is stapled to the side of trailer, the aluminum bottom section is slipped up into it and then it is hammered over the aluminum

If you need to replace the dark brown aluminum radius piece you would just have to check both ends where they screw through the outside to hold it in place and then remove screws from the underside where the metal braces are attached then with a stiff putty knife gently pry from the underside of black strip just enough to bring it out a little and slip the aluminum radius panel out

I know this only because I watched them installing the black molding and lower skirts when we were on the factory tour

Actually you might not even have to pry it at all you might be able just to slip it out as it is just caulked along the top edge of molding

I did the exact repair and found a staple under the end. I was able to open the black strip enough to remove the staple then the brown metal was pulled down. The new metal will be one long piece and the wheel radius has to be cut. I flattened the old metal and used it as a temple for the cut. I used a metal cutting wheel for the cut. The cut was not critical as most of it ends up under the fiberglass fender. When I had the cut brown metal in place in used I used a piece if wood to bend the black piece back into place.

Prior post on repair.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the repair info. As soon as the skirting I've ordered arrives I should be all set.
Bill

Bill can you take pictures as you do your repair? It's a common issue and I saved $1000 doing it myself. I was so into doing the repair I didn't get pictures along the way and I'm sure many would find it useful.
