Worth repairing?

I had a seal fail around a slide out that quickly advanced to a cracked sidewall. We took a 12 hour trip over rough roads, and 10” crack appeared above a slide. Is this worth fixing? We tried to trade it in and the dealer basically didn’t want it. It’s a nice 7 year old 38’ fifth wheel that usually sells retail around $26,000 on the used market. I was willing to take $13,000 on wholesale trade, but when we arrived, the dealer walked away from the deal and said the rig is totaled. Of course as we hooked up and were leaving they ran out to offered us $10,000, but we were already tired of dealing with them. Is a crack worth fixing and on an otherwise good shape camper?

Florida State Parks Early Reservation

We’ve been camping for over 30 years, so not a newbie here, but apparently I still have not learned the tricks for Florida state park reservations. Back in the day (pre-COVID) we could almost always find a reservation 3-4 months out for even the most popular State Parks outside of maybe the Key’s or a few other places. Nowadays, it’s seems you have to attempt to reserve 11 months+14 days at exactly 8:00 EST AM to even have a chance. But what is really odd, even dates that would not be considered popular and “out of season”, like February in the Panhandle on a Wednesday, are snatched up quicker at 8:00 AM than you can physically even hit the buttons. I just don’t see how it’s possible that every single site for every single day on a one day reservation in the middle of the week can be snatched up so quickly. Is there some trick I’m missing, or a bot running in the background that is grabbing all these sites? Forget a holiday weekend, I never see reservations open for those. I’ve been running a “test” getting on at exactly 8:00 AM 11months+14 days to book a site preparing for a holiday weekend in 2023, and even just random dates I can’t seem to get a site quick enough. What gives?
