Ok, here's the background...
This is a 20 ton tagalong trailer.
A couple of years ago, it was laid on its side with a 65' Genie manlift riding on it. I wasn't around to see the damage, but I'm told it was pretty badly bent--to the extent that it pulled about 2 feet out of line with the truck.
The owners had it sent to a shop that straightened it out. I'm told it pulls pretty straight now, or at least it did on the trip back from the shop. It's been sitting around, and nobody has bothered to put the deck back on it. (They ordered lumber, but everybody was too busy. The lumber got used for something else... )
Anyway, I was looking it over the other day, and noticed that the front of the tongue, where the pintle eye attaches is mis-shapen. I'd have thought a good shop would have noticed something like this at the time it was being evaluated for repair. Maybe they did?
I'll let the pictures speak for themselves, and leave the resulting discussion open-ended.
