Uh Oh Part 3

After our welder left, we did some inspections and found a hidden problem caused by the broken front support.  Without that crossmember tying the two frame c-channels together, the channels were able to twist, allowing the trailer tongue to lift.

As we had already had the crossmember reinstalled, we didn't want to try and straighten the frame, so we had our welder back out for an hour to box the frame in, preventing further bending.  We asked him to stitch weld the boxing to prevent heat stressing the metal here, as this frame is pretty weak in general.
