I'll keep my eyes on the bolts and lube the gear.

Honestly I was thinking of taking off the bottom step all together.
I felt the same way at times, step in the gravel or dirt. However, when the steps are facing downhill, it becomes a diving platform and someone will get hurt with removed step. Can you make it portable/removable. By the way a bar magnet works fine for fooling the door switch and easier than rewiring when needed.

Well after having my LP valve replaced previously now it seems the regulator is leaking. Alreadfy had stairs fixed once (shoulder bolt broke). Now had them open while driving! Clipped a curb with them extended and now have 2 steps instead of 3. Bent a rear (maybe both) rear jacks. One definetely going to have to be replaced...second one we will see. Be careful where you auto level. Turns out jacks can over extended....no safety...and if they do you most likely will at least have to remove hydraulic lines and use a second jack to press up extended jack or worse actually bend a jack post...thus requiring a lot of physical work to get it out of the way ( unbolt it from frame and rotate 90 degrees) or just get a sawz-all....then disconnect level panel in coach. What a ruined weekend.... ah the joys.

Back to the dealer after FORD does its first service.

Propane sensor inside not accurate? My 30DS idiot lit on the monitor panel show LP full even thought he gauge reads half. Any body else have that issue? Not a big deal to go out and. Check the valve, just wondering.

Inside readout vs tank gauge.

My situation is same, inside reads 2/3 outside reads 1/3. Only took 7 gallons to fill. Dealer ordering new outside gauge.

None of the "sensors" for the tanks, of any type, are that accurate. Look at where the leads are placed on the FW tank if you dont believe me.

A tank monitor is on my upgrade list.

I coughed up the $30 something bucks for a regulator and did it myself.

It took the dealer THREE WEEKS to add a loop of 6ft of hose to the FW tank vent. THREE WEEKS. Whats the purpose of having an appointment? I had already talked to Forest River about the issue and relayed that to the dealer. I also relayed that I needed it back for the last race of October, because I knew this would happen, and you guessed it, I picked it up Thursday night when I was supposed to pull out on Friday for a 13 hour enduro. And that was only because I called the dealer and pitched a holy royal fit.
