Bent Rear Step Track - 2004 Classic
Have experienced deformation of the rear step track.
First picture is of the front step track, which appears to be in good shape. Second image is of the rear step track, which is bent inward to the mount. Third image is a closeup of the deformed area. Fourth is how the steps natural deploy.
There is no indication of something hitting the steps are while traveling - no marks on steps themselves, no adjacent damage to skin, no black marks, no damage to other track area... When stowed, the tracks protect the track area.
We use the steps as normal, and we've not had them drop while traveling. We are both normal sized folks (<200 lbs), and we haven't "bounced" on the steps. Use has been normal in and out.
Luckily, the trailer is under warranty, so we will need to arrange for repairs.
Am wondering what might be the cause? Any suggestions?
Any guidance on what will be the possible repair strategies? What's involved?
