Bent electric jack Thor Ace 2015 30.2

Rear electric jack bent. Metal plate mounted to RV is bent which causes jack to come out at angel. Plate is welded to RV NEXT to gas tank. RV will still level but Iím sure the strain isnít good at all.
Suggestions how to reshape metal plate

Electric? You sure it isn't hydraulic? And on my ACE they are bolted to the frame, not welded.

Correct hydraulic jacks

Jack is bolted on. The mounting bracket is welded next to gas tank. Sure I can heat it and bend it back but not at ease with it next to gas tank

If the jack is bolted to the welded steel plate on the frame.
one suggestion rather than heating and bending, it is to shim the jack out on the top or bottom so its level using washers or even car shims?
