a few days ago i was pulling onto a paved road in my coach and the fuel tank support (rear) hung on the edge of the pavement but i only traveled 12-18 inches before gettin' stopped. then i backed up so as to not cause any damage--- that's wnen the damage occured.--- the tank cradle (rear) gouged up some of the pavement and got pushed toward the front and the gouged up pavement bent the 120 gal tank up and in just where the support is. the support won'f be any prbm to straighten.--- the tank--- now there is my question--- how to (if possible) can the tank be pushed back out? air pressure, air and heat? any help here will be truley be appreciated. mase

aluminum-I hope....just air -regulated and a dinging hammer NO HEAT make sure the tank is empty and the fuel lines/cross overs etc. are disconnected...too much and you have a puffed out end cap....use the dinging hammer around the edges and then increase the pressure do it over again.....around and around....geofkaye
women-food-money-naps...not necessarly in that order
