X2 for Stevemac's comment. Stormberg Carlson is the best for fold up storage, adjustable legs and strength and stability.

Think I'm gonna try that next time. Just have to figure out how to manually do it.
thanks for the tip

Just curious why you don't dump all the air, then level?

I can't speak for everyone else, but even after I dump, the auto leveling system and sometimes manually leveling requires that the front end be somewhat high off the ground to get level.

We've all had those times when the front of the coach had to be raised up a bit to get things level. That puts the bottom step a little too high above the ground for comfort.

I use the Stromberg step. It's not quite like the picture in the previous post. Mine has adjustable legs, which is really handy. It can be as low as a couple of inches high, and will adjust to level out any uneven ground situation.
