MorRyde Step Above install

I read a previous post regarding these steps, but due to thread age I could not post a reply, so new thread.

Just installed the steps. So easy, less than 30 minutes. The DW and I love them.
OK, now the install issues (minor).
Like a previous post, my doors are a bit tight when the steps are down causing the screen door to ride up enough to hit at the top corner and have to slam to secure it. Tried adjusting the striker already.
On mine I can see the hinge plate hitting the small lip on the threshold. Me thinks I may file the lip down to see if that helps. Also I will see if the provided screws are hitting the plate and address that if necessary.

Would I do this again??....in a heartbeat.

I've been looking at these and the Solid steps and both seem pretty straight forward to install. I'm waiting on a sale though since I have two sets to replace on the Sandpiper 379FLOK. Its weird that it came with four steps in the front but only 3 on the rear door. The last step on that door is way up. Do you have any issues with the adjustable legs being in the way of foot traffic?

My legs are not in the way. I am thinking of drilling another hole to allow further extension as my trailer is 36 inches ground to threshold and the 3 steps still have a bit of an angle.
I bought mine at RVautoparts.com $214 delivered.

Our 2018 Surveyor 267RBSS came with those steps and we absolutely love them, the stability is awesome.....

Step above install report

I too added the Step Above to my 5th wheel. Install was easy but the doors were too tight. Talked to Morryde and they reported some owners cut down the doors.
I had to remove about 3/8 from the bottom of the screen door (cut down the sides) and ground an aluminum lip on the bottom of the door. I also removed a rough strip glued to the StepAbove. Doors now close, albeit tight, but close they do.

I had a little bit of room to play with so I just unscrewed the screen door and remounted it a smidget higher.

Also be forewarned if you have the step legs slightly high it will cause the door / screen to bind. Best to lay the steps down with out pins and adjust the legs while they are free floating to the desired height.
Hope that makes some sense.

These steps look great! What do you do when it is rainy and nasty outside and you need to stow them?

Thanks,

That's one of the down sides I found. But I still think the stability is worth it.

Ha! Thats a good point. Did not think of that till your post.

Have to come up with a solution, because we just went to look at our new 2109S yesterday and were surprised that it has the Mor ryde entry steps.

Im guessing, fold em up, let em drip off a bit, wipe em down a bit and have some kind of weatherproof floor mat inside and under them somehow to catch the drips...
