I go on my roof about every two months or so to wash it off. I'm heavy, but I try to be gentle. The last time I climbed down the ladder I heard one of the rungs make a cracking noise. I checked and found that on both ends of each rung is a plastic cap with three screws in it. One had cracked at the center screw. I pulled out my ladder extension (the one that hangs over the engine doors) and removed one of the caps from it to replace the broken one (I don't use my ladder extension).

As I replaced the broken one I saw that three others were cracked. I started looking for a manufacturer and found some small print on the end of the cap "Kemberly Inc.". After some research I found they're a subsidiary of Atwood RV products.

I eventually got a phone number for Kemberly Inc. and spoke to sales. They told me that they can send out (10) of the caps at no charge. They took my name and address and they're on their way.

Long story, but if Monaco used the same ladder on most of their coaches and you find that your caps are cracking, here's a free source. (574)264-4144

I weigh about 225. Every time I use the extension, I look at the "hooks", each held on by one bolt. I just pray they made them strong. Wouldn't want them to break while I was standing on it.
