What I did to my Airstream?

Ok, I am very new to this travel trailer world. I have only used it once - went to Sarasota and managed to rip my awning.

Now, I had to move it to a different storage lot. So, hook up and carefully start to move it out of its spot. I was right up against a cemet block wall. Had a semi trailer in front of me. Well, back and forth, back a forth.....and finally can make the turn... So, I don't hear anything. Stopped at my house to load some stuff into it and do a walk around.... wala.... nice scrape on the street side. I managed to take off the side light, scrape the water input and the other thing... don't know what it was for....never used it.

So, I can fix this myself? What are the parts called? To say that I am upset with myself would be an understatement. Since I travel alone, I guess I have to get use to the occassional bump, ding or dent...

I will love the light for it shows me the way....yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars.

Tom----If you are a little handy with tools, you can replace these things yourself. Stop by an airstream dealer and visit the parts dept. The black thing missing its cover looks like an electrical receptacle. It would be smart to replace all three damaged items.

Otherwise, have a RV shop take care of it for you.

In the future, it might be helpful to have some one guide you in situations like this. Good luck!
