Lippert Solid Step - keep showing up damaged

Alright - post up your LCI Solid Steps door tabs!

I've purchased two LCI 3-step 28" Solid Steps now and the tabs that rest in the door jamb have been bent from what I can tell. I believe based on photos on e-trailer, etc that these tabs should be fairly right-angles and include some sort of rubber/plastic cab to protect against rubbing on the door frame because there is residual glue on the metal tabs but nothing.

Can anyone else confirm with photos how these tabs look and if plastic covers should be there?

Those stops do not have a rubber covering on mine and all of the bends are at sharp right angles.

I have seen several of these steps on other trailers, and they are the same as mine.

Hi,


Mine (going into third season of use) are right angled, they have not bent or deformed, and there are no bumpers.


FWIW.

Depends who you bought it from. I bought mine from Camping World, shipped by FedEx. It took 3 to get one that wasn’t defective. I talked with Lippaert, was told due to the flimsy box they are shipped in there is a better than 50% chance of shipping damage. They ship from factory on a pallet. So pay a little more for truck shipping on pallet.

That's shipping damage. Not supposed to look that way.

Those steps came on my 2019, yes at right angles and a junk plastic sleeve cover the end. Duct tape would do a better job. Dumping them before next summer for aluminum pull out steps.

Before I go and try my attempt at a 3rd time on these steps - Why are you getting rid of them CaptnJohn? I'm always drawn to them on the lots but imagine having them in the field under normal use gives you more insight.

Quality control always seems to be issue or in this case is it packing/shipping ... we like ours a lot ... one thing they need adjustment every you camp to ensure legs are flush and door swings free and clear ...

Have you looked into the Mor-ryde units instead? Same basic design.

Newer trailers have a higher door sill. Ours is a 2005 and when I called MorRide and discussed measurements they told me theirs won’t work on ours. I did have to do modification for the step above; shaved off the lip under the door on the outside, routed out the hardwood flooring so the plate could sit on the plywood subfloor and notched the door frame to provide clearance for the locks that hold it closed. End result is we are extremely happy with it.
