Angry SCS/Frigette coach steps

We had a bolt break and the bushing is crumbling. My husband found a bolt that fits but is having trouble with the bushing. Where can we go to get a new one? Any ideas? The owners manual doesn't give a model or any information on the size for the bushing. We have a 2008 Monaco

What model Monaco??? I also had problems with the steps on my 2008 Signature. The mounting plate was to thin and allowed the bolt to wobble and ream out the hole allowing the gears to "flex" while pulling the steps in. Kept jumping gears and was jerky while coming in or out. I had a metal shop make me a thicker mounting plate and it holds the bolt steady and the gears are solid now. Steps have never worked so smoothly.

kleea.....Take a look at this website.....it should have what you're looking for. The bolt you need is about half way down the page of parts. I ordered the bolt and I believe there are 10 bushings that fit at each of the joints. Once I replaced the bolt and the bushings, my steps were as solid as when they were new. There is also a couple of allen bolts hidden under the front of the steps (at the top) that secure the main shaft the steps swivel on. These two bolts (at the left and right end of the step) come loose and cause slop, which causes that center main bolt to break.
