Hmmmm how did that get there?

So the other day I'm back at my parents house with my guys and I'm hooking up moving my trailer so we can get some work done on the house's garden beds and I see a new hole on the under carriage of the airstream. It's very visible, just under a rub line. Is it possible that one of my guys did this? I don't think we had any machines along that side, or did I do this when backing up with the TV?
It's location is just to the right of the forward LP tanks, just under the rub line.
Anyone know how I could have done this? This material seems pretty strong, it would have taken some force.
Thanks,
Being new is expensive!

Looks someone might have run a lawn mower into it.

He said that he doesnt believe that they had any "machines" on that side of the trailer. It certainly could have been done when backing up. The marks appear to show that whatever it was was black....
Any accident re-creation experts here?

I may could from road debris if it's on the front, or possibly from the TV if you turned real tight when backing.

I have to think that it must have been my fault/tv. Has anyone else had to repair something like this before? Any idea of the cost? I'm concerned about rain getting in. I already have a bumper in the back that is back grading water into my aft storage area and soaking the carpet back there.

Google "MEK/ABS", there's some good threads on how to repair those problems. PM me, should you have any questions, I've done a lot of these repairs using fibreglass cloth as a "doubler" in back.
