Mine say Coach Step, No lubricant required. Nice, I guess. Ours did break on our first trip. They were repaired under warranty, and service center said it is a very common step, there's nothing wrong with the quality. It was the gear box, same as the photos in the earlier post. They said they had FR send a new one, they weren't going to try to repair it (the gear and the bolt). They did seems surprised that it broke.
I now put the orange leveling pads under ours. I can't remove the 3rd step because when we camp, I actually need to add a 4th step.
