Inadvertant improvement mod....
Well, it was bound to happen. We pulled our fifth wheel over a very windy, bumpy section of road and at the suggestion of my DW, I stopped to check to make sure nothing got loose inside, everything OK so I hopped back into the truck and proceeded down the road. About 40 miles down the road a flagger at a construction zone stopped me and told me my folding step was still out....at least what was left of it. Yep, forgot to fold it back up and the bottom step was sheared off. Bought a new complete folding step, same brand, from an RV place for $150 and installed it myself. Turns out the new step is MUCH nicer than the old one, it is sturdier and the steps are slightly deeper, just enough so that it makes climbing in and out with my replaced hip and surgerized knee way easier and the DW likes it, as do the dogs. Who knew they put the cheapest most unergonomic steps on these things at the factory??
