I guess anything is possible with Rv's. I would have never thought wind could cause properly stowed and mechanically sound stairs to come out when traveling.

That is another great benefit to this forum - you learn something new everyday.

Winds of 45 gusts to seventy on the beam crossing Iowa. Unrolled the awning 5 times but, never ripped. Duct tape fixed that. That Alpenlite wasn't affected by wind much.
