Bought new 35 Vista and steps were alway bumcy. Bought jacks to support steps. When at the dealer, went aboard another Vista and the steps were rock solid. Brought this to the attention of the service manager and he called back to say that after inspection, there was a cracked weld on mine and they replace the whole thing. Mine are now solid.

Having the auto steps and auto levelers I think I will leave well enough alone. Thanks for all of the suggestions everyone.

Bryantclan , or anyone. Where did you find the folding steps. This might be the safest idea for me.

You just need to make the proper repairs if the steps are broken. Crawl under the RV & have someone step on the step. It can be repaired. Sticking a prop under a broken step just seems like a poor repair. I want my RV to have resale. The fact remains, if I was buying a used RV they would have to repair step properly before sale. I just prefer to enjoy my RV with a good step during my ownership not when it is sold. JMHO

I agree ones fix may not be for someone else. Some of us feel we have found a logical solution to a problem, while others may not agree! Seems like that's how things work! For me my jack has worked, I guess if the coach puts all its weight on my steps it will be time to regroup! I have been supporting my steps for a long time. If and when the weight of our MH crushes our steps, it will be time to readjust my thinking. So far not adjusting.

I do not mean to hijack someones thread, but my steps move about 2 inches when stepped on.. I do not see anything loose or broken under their. I suspect that all the moving/hinged parts are just warn and allow wiggling. I just wonder if their is an upgrade kit of bushings to repair this problem.. Any Ideas? Maybe I will call Kwikie steps later today and ask..

Have someone step on the step while you are looking underneath. You can tell what parts are loose.

Amazing... I drug out the Kwikie Step manual.. Says here to adjust the cam stops to correct the "Mushy" feel of the steps.. I will try that in a bit and let you know.
Sometimes even Men need to read the instructions.

Yep,, I read the instructions to adjust the cams, did it by myself and its much better. My next move is to ask DW to stand on the step to help get it tight..If I am never on here again you will know that was the wrong thing to ask.
