First step is too High

Our power step on our Motor home is too high. I am sure I am not the only one with this problem. Does anybody have any ideas what I can do with this?

We carry one of these Gold's Gym Aerobic Step - Walmart.com with us. It is adjustable in height, and is wider than the electric step so makes for a stable platform.

I just carry a 7" high wooden box that I built. Handy for other things when not needed.

We have a two adjustable height step bought via Camping World, or maybe it was Amazon. Aluminum and light weight.

That's what I love about the air suspension system on our Windsor. I dump all the air and it lowers the step within a few inches of the ground!

Thanks for the info.

Do you have room to switch to an electric double step model?

How does that work when the front of the parking spot is a foot or more lower than the rear?

We dump before leveling. I would have to be really desperate to take a site with that much slope! My leveling system would not compensate for that much difference!

Use the manual mode.

I've found that if I let the auto leveling system do it's thing, sometimes it will end up higher than really needed. I use the manual mode and level the bus pushing the buttons myself and end up level at a lower height than I would otherwise. Works sometimes but a step is going to be necessary sometimes as well.
