I also had a bracket on the steps recalled while at the rally. Upon leaving the last day, the steps wouldn't retract all the way. I had to remove a bolt, push the steps up and use a tie down strap on them to get home.
Ran it to the dealership only to be told that my house batteries were not charged up. Of course the steps worked fine for them.
Got it home, charged up the batteries, steps wouldn't go up. Checked my batteries and they seemed "iffy" so today I bought 2 new house batteries, installed them and the steps will not retract all the way. I currently have a maintenance charger on them, hoping the batteries needed to be "topped off".
I'm going to go off the deep end on somebody because: 1) the steps worked just fine before the recall; 2) I've been very happy with the service department at dealership and I hope they didn't miss the problem; 3) I just spent a couple of hundred on house batteries that I may not have needed!
