Here is the broken bolt. I you look closely, you can see a line where it broke. I wonder if the tack weld was to hot and caused the bolt to become to hard...

Bob I wonder the same thing. It doesn't take that much heat to change the strength of that bolt. Glad you weren't hurt. I did the same thing.

I have two brand new bolts that I would sell for $10.00 for both.
Let me know if you are interested.

I have done every repair to these (POS) steps possible.
Bolt, motor, bushings and links.
Finally got to the point where I removed the third step which was always too low
Now we use a portable step and a pair of step stabilizers to keep things solid.
Seems to go in and out with much less effort
Hope this will make the parts last longer.
Time will tell

I just had mine replaced last month, I contacted Lippert directly and was told to take it to a dealer ( I take my Rv to Deans RV in Tulsa ) Lippert sent the dealer a new replacement asy at no charge to me / parts and labor covered, 2013 XL. Took approx 4 weeks to get it done, but it's done! And was out of warranty.
