Our steps were manufactured with rivets. So far we have lost 3 which I have replaced with bolts and nylock nuts. This is with 215 camping nights of use. Our older camper had stair bolts breaking too.

Up date on propane alarm. While checking all fittings with soap I found a very small leak, fixed it and all seams well for now.

Next day and the alarm going off while washing! Ugh! Today went off again, put fan on it and it quits. I am beginning to think the sensor has reached its life span. It is about 52 months old and the front says replace before 60 months.

I had to replace the alarm after 36months. I also have the King Jack which directly relaced the Winegard. Works great and I get lots more local channels.

Thanks I think I will just replace the sensor. It is going off in the afternoon heat now just sitting a home. If I put a fan on it it will return to normal.

Mogman did you replace the crank up or mount to the crank up. I know they make both styles. I want to get rid of the crank up as it rattles while on the road. Thanks
