That is real BS...they replaced my steps when the rv went back to Indiana to replace the roof and ceiling that had the same bad batch of glue. Since the steps were less than a year old, they replaced the with the Kwikee free of charge. I too had the hydraulic manifold replaced along with some hoses. All those part made in the Republic of Communist China,,,,thank you very much for this crap. Right now, no leaks, everything working ok, knock on wood. The wife wants to replace the cheap carpet with linoleum. I feel for you brother.
