Bent ram

Just got my 2011 3400RL back after 7 weeks in the shop. Problem was a bent ram on the bedroom slide. I believe this was caused from snow/ice on top of side. My mistake, never again. $700.00

Not to pour salt in the wound but that shaft could have been straightened at any machine shop for under 200.00

The part was only $239.00 the rest was labor. I had about 6" of snow, a lot of ice. I believe it was mostly the ice.
