Bill, let me expand on my post. If you have the steps that are part of the recall, you will need to contact LCI directly and get a case number which will give you the option of getting the new -free- bracket mounting or receive a $200 credit off of the Kwikee step dealer cost. The catch is that due to liability, LCI will not give either one directly to you. You must use a dealer for purchase/installation. At this point you will be at the mercy of the dealer.
Since I was already having some AC work being performed on my Ventana, the mobile mech. ordered my steps for me and didn't hit me for charges. He accepted the 1/2 hour of labor as his profit.
My 2 step Kwikee cost $350 plus $132 shipping - ouch. So if you know someone in the business thats the way to go.
I just returned from a short trip and after leveling, my (2) step was so close to the ground that I couldn't imagine what would have happened if I had the 3 step setup. Would it have stayed down or close back up after sensing resistance?
