We have a 2007 Georgetown 370 which we purchased the end of August. It was in great condition with only 8700 miles except when we went to look at in (on one of our many visits before buying) I stepped out of the coach and the steps swung back under the coach. I would have fallen on the pavement except I was holding onto the safety bar.
The sales person got back to us and told us a bolt had sheered off and needed to be replaced. That took about 10 days to get the part and get it fixed.
Yesterday we were taking a break from the days driving and stopped for a rest. We used the steps, which were not touching the ground when they deployed and everything was fine. When we came back into the coach, closed the door and started the motor the steps started to retract but there was a loud pop.
Sure enough the bolt sheered off again. We tied the steps up with a bungie and continued our trip. Have a couple rocks under the steps now so we can get in and out without a ladder.
My concern is whether anyone else has had this problem and if the factory has come up with a better answer than carrying a supply of bolts and a repair person with us to replace "sheered off bolts". I'm thinking of getting different steps.
Any answers or suggestions????
