Steps flex on Winnebago View 23H

I have a 2006 Winnebago View 23H. It has the Kwikee 2 step electric step unit. When I step onto the first step it drops about 1 inch. It causes the back of the step platform inside the RV to rise in the back along with the riser and right up to the top step that covers the batteries. With the top step off I can see that it flexes the battery box itself. The cams on the steps are tight against the arms. From underneath I don't see any broken welds or loose nuts or bolts. There is no simple way to remove the Kwikee step unit to check for structural damage because there are two bolted on side plates that hold the entire step compartment up. Is this normal movement or can it be fixed?

step support

I dropped the step assembly down , got a piece of 3/16" steel plate to span the opening drilled the 4 bolt holes then had the steel plate welded up in place. The bolts tend pull thru but the plate will now support the steps.

I believe AL10453 has give you good advice. I had an older Adventure that had the same problem. I took it to a welding shop and they reinforced the mounting area for the steps. It was not perfect but much improved.
