MORryde Steps

I'm beginning to hate these steps. The Mooryde steps are the solid steps that fold up into the door vs. extending/retracting under the door. 1st off, whenever you fold them up, whatever dirt and crude is on them, ends up in the RV. The real problem I have with them is that I forgot to adjust them at our new campsite and when I closed the door, the bottom of the door snagged the step and bent the door a little. Crap!!!!! Now, I was able to straighten it out but it's still a bummer. Just have to remember lower them (retract the extendable legs) as far as they can go each time we set up.

Can you remove them and install conventional steps?

I feel your pain sir, we have the Lippert version on our 36 CK2 and I find myself talking out loud prior to fully extending the steps or closing the door for the first time after deployment. But once adjusted both of us and the dog are starting to warm up to the stability offered.

Yes, once adjusted, they are very stable. I guess I'll just need to take more care when closing the door for the first time after setting up.

I carry an 8 or so inch bullet level for plumbing my DIRECTV antenna post. After my trailer is level, I put that bullet level on a step tread of my MORryde steps and adjust the feet until the step treads are level. That lets me know my door will close correctly and it only takes 3 minutes. This leveling process helps my DW navigate the steps since she has vertigo/equilibrium issues.

Good tip! I have learned to like the steps and make allowances when parked.

We've only had our TT about 5 weeks and I already have a love-hate relationship with these steps. They work great, they don't flex when stepping on them, you can adjust them for uneven surfaces, and I just sweep them off before returning them to the travel position. My main problem is our storage lot. I can't get in the TT without hitching up and pulling forward due to the lack of space to the next TT. I'm going to convert to the MORryde Quick Connect Step and store it in the pass-thru.

I like steps a lot but...
They can be a PITA if your site angles upward on the step's side. I had to reconnect the TT and block up both sides vice just one to level AND lift it high enough to use the fold down steps. Because after I initially leveled the TT side to side and dis connected the TV, I found the steps would not lay down on the threshold allowing the door to close, even literally pounding the feet up into the step frame.
The same problem can occur if your trailer sinks into soft ground, always use large boards under the wheels on bare ground. I used Lynx levelers and when this happened to me, after moving the trailer onto boards, I had to use a prybar to unstick the Lynx out of the ground ;( Luckily, when the wheels sank in the ground, I had the step's feet extended slightly and was able to retract them enough to make them hang and open the door to fold in the steps prior to repositioning the TT.
The door opening and closing correctly isn't about being level. It's about the top of the steps being flush with door threshold. The steps need to lay on the threshold.

Very small down sides for the great steps that they are. I added them to my unit and still have the old folding junk steps tucked under my unit. My dog would not do the old steps alone, now she can get in on her own without help.

My only frustration is having to drop them during loading. used to just open the door and pile bags in. I can live with a little dirt when leaving. I crush a beer can and use as shim under one leg if the ground is not level.

When I first saw them I wished we had them. Watching it since I have noticed a lot of times I need to go get something from the trailer while it is in storage. The next trailer can be too close sometimes. We also make roadside of rest stop lunches and from what I see here we would need to level our steps each time.

You don't need to level up for a quick bathroom break. Just be careful to to step on the very top. It may not be seated on the threshold and could bend. Also don't close the RV door as if not level you could damage the door. I do quick breaks on off/on ramps all the time this way, never a problem.

Oh ya, I forgot about not being able to open them when in storage. I've got the "exact" location of our storage space marked out so that's not a problem - but it was when we first got there.

Yes they are causing me the same problem in storage. I canít get even close to getting in the door with a 50 fit boat right next to me

Truly love mine...as does the wife. I don't have the storage issues some of you have, but I can see where that would be a problem. Love the stability they provide and I've never had trouble on uneven ground...as I anticipated that scenario and made some wood blocks to use under the feet if needed.

MORyde steps

MoRyde steps were one of the selling points for us when we bought our Surveyor TT. No issues, no problems, no shaking going in or out.

I Love the MORryde steps but they will not work on my Cedar Creek and I can't afford the GloSteps. they cost double of what the MORryde steps cost.
