Hey guys...how about a little attention to detail!
Working on my 18 month old class A, problem with the steps. Now 18 months is nothing but removing the Kwikee step plate resulted in two sheared 1/4" bolts and 2 sheared 10-32s that hold the motor onto the plate. I am convinced that when it comes to real running gear, Ford makes a chassis that can be maintained and pays attention to this kind of detail. After all, they make fleets and they do it right. Kwikee on the other hand...not really impressed. Did these guys ever hear of Never-seize? 2" 10-32s will rust and the nylon nuts will simply shear the shafts. Kinda surprised about the 1/4 " bolts that were sunk into tapped soft steel. Step motor failed with a sheared nylon drive gear. I know FR gets the bad reputation from these vendors but they don't deserve it. Sure they push the price down but I can't believe that this kind of thing happens so fast. I had a 1997 Bounder and after 15 years could still fix things and never ran into this kind of problem.
