So we returned from our first camping trip with our new 5.0 TA and everything was going fine as I was backing into our curved-uphill driveway until I heard a scrape and a pop. A branch on our dogwood tree cleared our old 19' Escape just fine. Not so the taller 5.0!
The branch rode up the slope of the roofline leaving a nice trail of bark and sap until it cleared the nose, came down hard on the drivers side clearance light and popped the lens off. When the lens hit the ground a nice sized chunk broke off one edge.
That branch is now history!
The good news is I was able to use some cleaner, then marine polish and then marine wax to make the damage disappear. Whew! I'm impressed with how tough the gel coat is!
The bad new is I can't seem to find a compatible replacement lens in my local parts stores. Does anyone know the make or a source for a matching lens?
