[HOW TO] Repair rotted out step support bolt

On my last camping trip, one of the support bolts for the folding step unit pulled right through the floor.

I pulled up the threshold that this bolt just happened to be under and found that this had happened before and a small piece of thin metal was used to support the step after a hole was made to fish out the original bolt. I decided a much heavier and longer piece of metal to distribute the load was in order.

So, I did this (Notes in photo captions):

I am suggesting to the forums mods that we put [HOW TO] in front of a post that explains how to do something to assist in searches for topical help.

If you care to comment (either way), I posted this suggestion here:

Looks like a good job. I did almost the same thing to my KZ Jag. Only I used a large flat washer and a longer bolt.
