Marcus, For individual tubes take a length of 4x4 and drill a hole lengthwise the same diameter as the tubing with a long bit. Now slice the 4x4 lengthwise through the middle of hole. you can now place 1/2 of the 4x4 on each side of the tube and c lamp it with some C clamps. This will do wonders on short bends in each tube. For the bigger rougher stuff you can use 1/2 the same board and press against it with a high lift jack or ect. I used this same technique to straighten a bent rail on my boat. Previous owner had hit a deer on rt 50 going to the ocean. Deer missed the truck and hit the boat on the trailer. Left a pretty good dent on one side.
These links have write-ups and pics of most anything you ever will do on a 2.6 Isuzu. Engine, brakes, suspension, interior, you name it! Enjoy!

Looks like that electrical issue with the trailer lights was that flakey turn signal bulb.

we towed the camper last night and the lights worked perfectly with a simple plug them in and test.

Crazy!
