Electric Step Broke

Pulled in to the Nashville KOA this afternoon on way to Fl, and when I opened the door, the shoulder bolt for the fan gear sheared off. Lucky for me I was looking down and noticed the step wasn't out. No place in Nashville has a replacement bolt. Believe this is the same problem that was recalled for the 2 and 3 step steps. Guess I'll zip tie everything so nothing can move until I can fix it. Fortunately, I have a step platform that I used with our previous Winnebago RV available.

I had exactly the same issue. I tied the step up and when I got home, removed it and made a new bolt which was a pain, since the original is welded in, and reinstalled for the next trip. Mitch at FR told me to give Lippert a call, I did and they sent me a complete new step assy. at no charge. The had to send it to a local RV repair facility, and Lippert paid them to install.

Guess it being welded in is why I couldn't remove the threaded portion. Will be calling FR this week. Tx.

Haha, I thought it looked simple, struggled with it at an RV park then got a small mirror and discovered it was welded and put that little fix it job into the nice try column until I got home. The entire assembly is held on by 4 5/16 bolts and is easy to get on and off as long as you put a floor jack under it since it is pretty heavy.
