I also thought it would be a big deal, but I removed the steps from the RV (4 bolts) and I was able to see the end of the big bolt (the broken off part) and thread it on thru the hole. While I had the steps off I sanded and repainted them. I'm not a fan of the Lippert steps and tried to get them to replace them, but they wouldn't. I have found out that they really aren't that hard to repair. I've had the step shoulder bolts break, the center gear bolt break, the center gear bolt loosen and the three small bolts that hold the motor on loosen and strip out. I've fixed them each time and it took less than 30 minutes each time.
