Angry Slide Damaged first time out (of yard)

Took the new gurl out camping out of the yard, was putting out slides, odd sounds began and slide struggling. DW goes into slight panic mode and im outside watching the slide stop halfway. Run inside and " ohh bleep". photo#1- Slide trim was at about 15 degrees off from frame. you can see the inside trim came off some. The so called frame/trim leaning against that "end table" fell off and into the slide as it was going out. Photo#2- Cable standoff is bent and you can see where the frame contacted the slide. photos#3-4- Screw holes in back of frame that fell are not even 1/8 inch deep into frame

Any Ideas on best way to replace this bracket?. that bracket is like $7. Ill pay that than deal with dealership or manufacture holding my trailer hostage for longer than 2 days,
