Replacing the bolt which is a special part not just a bolt. It won't last. You need better quality steps. They upgraded mine to kwikee. The original lipped broke in the first 2 weeks. The upgraded kwikee are almost a year old with no problems.

Step broke for mr too last year. I took it into camping world for warranty work. They fixed it and said those steps are very common For me it was a bolt at the gear box that broke in two. Now I put levelers under them when parked. But they said I should be fine. Time will tell

I didn't want to loose 3rd step because I have leveled where I needed a 4th step the front was so high.

My steps broke too but it was because I forgot to fold them in before I pulled the trailer out of the barn!

I think this the part that broke on my lippert steps. $6.00 part. You would need a drill and easy out to remove the threaded piece that sheared off in the welded nut.

Same part is broken on mine. I'm going to let the dealer fix it since we have even been camping yet.
