I'd think the chances for immediate or future leaks would be one of the main problems with a repair. My mantra is that your trailer either has leaked, is leaking now or will soon leak. Fixed a lot of 'em. One of the joys of TT ownership.

When I ordered my new 5th wheel the dealer said there are two types of trailers, (those that leak and those that will leak).

Notice in your first photo, the wrinkles in the undercarriage at the front and back. Looks like stress from bending. I think it will be totaled, and you should hope for complete replacement value.

Does anybody think it would be a good idea for there to be some kind of class to take, and test to pass before you can take a trailer out on the streets?

Haha, you are misguided. Yes, you should be safe and stop, for you.

Yellow is just as I said. I am not talking about safety or the complete obvious things like looking out for danger. This is so obvious, I cant even imagine how someone would think we need to be told on an urelated forum to look out for traffic. No, we are talking about the law and the legal meaning of a yellow light. Yellow means red is about to happen. Yellow is legally the end of the GREEN light, not the beginning of the RED light. Entering the intersection under yellow is just the same as entering under green! You can sit and imagine all the scenarios where another driver can crash you, but no need to tell stories here on the forum. If you are scared, do not drive. If you stop suddenly and unsafely at a yellow you might get rear-ended and be the cause of a crash. Know the laws.

Heck schools don't even teach drivers ed anymore. I know of people on the forum who have taken a truck driver course for their MDT and 5th wheel.

The OP is in Oregon, and Oregon law is clear about stopping at yellow lights unless you cant’t: https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/811.260

Yellow lights are timed to allow enough time to clear the intersection. You can get a ticket for entering when it’s been yellow for too long and the usual evidence is that it turned red while you were still in it. Granted most cops/judges would take your speed into consideration if you’re towing and obviously need to move slower than average vehicle.

Getting rear ended is not the fault of the one stopping, unless you last second lane-change dive in front of someone while doing it.

Let it go. You don't want this reminder on every trip for the next decade. Then hard to sell at the end.

And I think you know now to continue at your own pace even if you hold up traffic for a bit. Just as you would give polite consideration for a semi truck completing the same turn.

Regarding yellow light, I actually entered the intersection right after the light turned green.There was a through vehicle so I waited for it. The green light is kind of short so before long it turned yellow. I don't think I did wrong in that part, it's just I was trying to clear the intersection and speed up, which is actually not necessary and I regret...
