MORryde steps

I have a 2018 rock wood 2706ws, the dealer installed moryde steps( fold into camper). Since install they have never been right, they cause the door to bind, even was locked in the camper last trip. When they caused me to be locked in the camper the adjustment legs werenít even touching the ground. Has anyone had any issues with theirs or anyone have any advice? I removed them once I got out of the camper, not sure what to do.

Am.i understanding that you raised the steps into the camper while inside?

If you will do a search and spell the word like the factory does (MORryde or morryde), you'll find several threads where members have had trouble with these steps - some of the time it's because the steps weren't adjusted correctly with each set-up. This thread http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...ps-182204.html is one such and it includes my solution.


Here's another ==> http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...ps-165826.html.


I have no problems when my step treads are level.

Thanks me Dan, my local dealer and I are frustrated. I had to kick the door open from the inside when I was trapped, damaged the door and latch to boot. I removed the stairs immediately and now looking for a permanent solution.

Mine were installed by a MORryde technician at the International Rally in Goshen a couple of years ago. My issue was that I have a non-standard (double thick) screen door which wouldn't close fully. The tech had never seen a double-thick screen door (nor had I). He had to use an angle grinder to reduce the screen door to single thickness where the door struck the steps' latch brackets.

I wish I could get a MORryde technician to my dealer, I really like the steps of the would work properly.

I’ve considered replacing them with fold out steps but I can’t find where to buy the brackets that they mount too.

Each trip the legs have to be checked for proper length before stepped on ... legs feet should be flush to ground and check that threshold of steps are flush to floor of camper ... carefully close the door first time after set-up there should be no drag on bottom of door ... steps have many holes for adjusting length ... best of luck with your steps

When I installed my steps I had to deviate from the instructions. It was to be mounted a certain distance from threshold I had to increase the distance by quite a bit. I want to say about 3/4" to achieve a good fit with the doors.

Have your dealer change them out with the Lippert SolidStep. The number of problems (including what you describe) with the MORryde steps reported here and other places is infinitely more than those with the Lippert steps. I have several friends with the MORryde steps — both new when they bought their RV and swapped-out with their old pull-down steps — and I can attest that they are nowhere near as good as the Lippert steps that I installed on my RV. The Lippert steps cost more, but there is a good reason for that. Of course there are people (including some of my friends) who have had no problems or complaints with their MORryde steps, but everybody...everybody I know who has the MORryde steps on their RV and have also seen and used my Lippert steps have commented on how much more they prefer my steps to theirs. That is not an exaggeration, either. It is the truth.

I spent a lot of time researching the differences between the two brands before I made a decision on which to buy, and it paid off.

It seems almost everybody has had to deviate from the instructions to install the MORryde steps, as well as modify various things so their door will close. I havenít read of many installations of the Lippert steps where modifications were necessary.

I complained about the steps although I think mine are the Lippert version. They sent me a different set of extension feet which have worked better. They still donít work all the time but they have more sets of holes to try. We still have issues with the door rubbing sometimes. The treads are not level either. They lean downwards.

To me it looks like what happens is that if someone uses the steps when the feet are not adjusted properly, the stairs get bent downward each time. Just enough so that when you adjust the feet the next time, the part that sits below the closed door is higher than it used to be and now the door binds. Maybe there was a way to bend the steps backward and reverse the damage. Iíve thought about removing the catch tabs from the sides and pushing the steps Iíve into the camper, but I think that may pull the mounting screws out of the floor.

These steps should come with a training video... I am almost sure I would have messed them up if not for a good PDI, he that took time to explain they have to be adjusted every time you move the camper... mine have at least 12 holes to to ensure proper fit .... I think my steps are terrific and good luck to all who are having issues...
