replacement roof ladder

I just bought a 01 R vision 35 ft class A. The rear ladder is not very secure as some of the bolts are rusted and broken. My question is that my ladder seems to be bolted at every step to the coach. All of the replacements seemed to be attached in a lot less spots. I would love to keep what I have and fix the mounting locations where it is broken. Can I just replace the broken hardware?

Do you mean the bolts on either side of each step or the ones attaching the ladder to the coach? The ones holding it to the coach may have blind nuts under the skin and in this case if the bolt is broken you may have to drill it out (not an easy job) and run a tap into the nut to clean up the threads. If any of the bolts are rusty try soaking them with PB blaster from Lowes, Home Depot etc. Maybe if you let them soak a while you might get lucky and be able to unscrew them.

I had some rusty ones that came out well and replaced them with SS bolts and a little Neverseize.

Good Luck

Yes those are the ones that are broken. I will spray them down today and see if I can get them out.Would rather not have to replace the whole ladder if I dont have to. All of the replacements look to have less mounting points then mine does also.
