SolidStep Install on My Windjammer

I installed these LCI SolidSteps yesterday on my Windjammer. There were no modifications needed and the job took me less than 30 minutes. The pictures show from the front, from the side and in the stowed position. They are as solid as a rock walking up and down, plus, the trailer doesnít budge while you are using them. I am very pleased with this modification.

Nice Steps and install,but I can't use this type because I can't open the door far enough to deploy the steps because of the wall of the building where we store it! They were installing these on the 5th wheels at the "Rockwood/Flagstaff" factory,but I didn't see any on the TT lines! Youroo!!

I just spent 30 minutes working on getting these three pictures oriented correctly. I donít know what I did wrong in the first place and I donít know what I did to fix them, but there they are, all the right way around.

I have noticed that quite a few Rockwoods, both 5er and TT are coming with these steps.

Our 2017 Cherokee 304 came with them installed from factory. I love them, the wife REALLY loves them. It took a weekend of using them to stop anticipating the "flex" that the older steps always did when you stepped on the bottom step.

I think thatís a great idea, except for in situations like youroo would experience. I left my fold out steps in place, so if I did ever run into yourooís situation, I could remove the SolidStep in about five minutes and use the fold outs. Maybe Rockwood should consider including both styles of steps for just this reason.

If you want to prevent that in the future, always turn your phone sideways when taking a pic. That will give you a "wide" shot which most of these programs use by default. Noticed TV stations are now telling viewers that send in pics to the news to Turn the Phone Sideways. There is a orientation...at least on my LG phone, that I have to have the shutter button on the right side of phone. If I forget and turn the phone the other way (shutter button by left hand) the photo will post upside down.

I take all of my pictures and videos with my phone sideways. I donít know what the deal was with posting them this time. Iíve never had a problem before.

They really seem to be nice and am anticipating adding them to my RV. I spoke to two dealers at an RV show and they said many customers complained of all the dirt on the steps falling off inside the RV when they folded them up and the lip at the door prevented them from easily sweeping the dirt out. I don't see why it should be difficult to sweep the steps prior to folding up. What am I missing???

Love this modification. We have heavy wooden steps at our summer site. DH is getting tired if setting them up. May I ask the cost of this update? And how hard are they to install? Can someone that has average skilks with a screwdriver and drill do this? Thanks for the post and idea!
