That same thing happened to our steps. I'm also a big guy (6'6", 345 pounds) and they broke when I was going down them once. I just had them replaced with new steps that are more sturdy.

Thanks OC! Yep, did that yesterday, ground off all the rivets as well, drilled them all out to 5/16", and replaced with grade 5 bolts and nyloc. The one rivet I replaced last year with a 1/4" gr 5 bolt showed no sign of wear, so I think I should be OK with the larger bolts. I also have ordered the Stromberg Carlson Stabil-Step Jack for bottom step support (#JSS-4 with 4.75"-7.75" adjustment)

Has anybody heard what happened to him. He used to be on here all the time, and shared some very useful information for several years. Doesn't appear to have posted since Aug. 2015.

Has anyone had a problem with water leaking in by the window by the kitchen sink? We were finding water on the counter, which has begun to wrap, after it rained and we finally used a hose to squirt water on that window and found out that is where water is leaking in. Do we just need to caulk around the window? On the inside or the outside? We are not quite sure where on the window it is coming in.

Never had a leak there. I would silicone the outside of the window. Don't need water in the walls.

Just finished 2000 mile trip and after arriving home noticed all the lines under kitchen/sofa slide hanging down. The lippert "Flexguard" is cracked and all the line holders are broken off. I have orderd a new one but have a question. Do the lines wrap around outside of flexguard or inside? Mine are all broken off but it appears the lines go on outside of radius. If anyone knows or can take a look at their 27rlws I would appreciate it. At least it waited till I got home in driveway before breaking!

Good timing as we are heading out in the AM, and had my slides out for lubrication of gear and track.

The lines run around the rear of the flexguard and are held in place by 4 line holders which are plastic gadgets with holes in them for the lines to pass through. One at each end and two in the centre to hold the bulk of the weight of the lines.

Hope that helps. Was kinda dark under there for a cel phone pic.

That's interesting the lines are on the inside of the flex guard in that picture. I've already made a repair putting them on the
outside per devilscreekw. Thanks.
