Coach ladder - Heads Up!

While using the Newmar installed ladder on the back of our 2015 Bay Star, I noted a small rattle. A quick inspection showed that almost all the screws in this ladder were loose; some really loose (finger tight).

You can bet I'll be back to that ladder with my Loctite just as soon as we get back to home base.

Hope this prevents someone from getting an owie.

Saw a post about that awhile back Jim with some really good solutions. Maybe you should do a search.

Would recommend putting stainless steel hose clamps on the bottom of each step. Had one step break loss on one side from the plastic fitting. Good safety item for ladder.

Good idea to check those screws before going up.
