Broken Stairs

We've had the same issue . . . twice! The first fix didn't last long; so far the second fix is holding.

ID:	116300 While looking underneath I couldn't really see the cause of the problem but thought may be a loose bolt and nut or broken weld. Hopeful will know for sure soon. Thanks for everyone's insight. Happy motoring. Jim

Got our RV back from the dealer. They feel quite solid again. No charge (FR paid for the repairs)... the paperwork says they removed the step and wiring, straightened metal, welded broken section back together and added material for extra support.

Our stairs failed to. Our dealer said two things, the way the door opens forces you to step in the same place every time, and the stairs are not the best quality. Our dealer re-welded and reinforced. FR paid for it.
