Rear ladder tube connector for Windsor

Hello Everyone

Any thoughts on how to fix a loose tube connector on our ladder. I would like to remove it so i can take a close look, but I could not figure out how. Its the bottom right connector.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There is a round wedge inside tube and is threaded in center. Remove four screws and there is a screw in center of the bracket going into wedge. It looks rusted so you will need to replace wedge and screw. Try Veurinks.com for ladder parts.

ladder repair

I just did this repair on my Diplomat. I purchased the parts from eBay item number 283044020091. Parts are stainless steel worked well. $33 for 10 nuts and bolts.
I would also check the plastic end caps on the ladder treads. They are prone to cracking and breaking when you step on the rung. Yours look weathered and most likely orginal to the coach.

Hi Ali; Sorry for the delay responding to your ladder info. I had the same problem on my previously owned 2000 Windsor. Mine did the same as yours. The reason is that the barbed nuts that go inside the tube of the ladder and the machine screws that are under that round aluminum plate that is fastened to the coach by 4 screws are all just plated steel and they rust! Water gets in the ladder tube and runs to the lowest spot where the barbed nuts are. They were rusted badly. Instead of replacing those barbed nuts and machine screws I found some nice die cast round mounts that the tube of the latter fit inside of. The holes for this mount were almost a perfect match for the 4 screws that go into the coach. I mounted these new die cast mountings and inserted the ladder tube into the die cast mounting. The mounting had about a 1/4 inch lip that the ladder tube inserted into. I then drilled a small hole in the lip through the ladder tube and inserted a SS sheet metal screw. Everything worked out great and looked better than what came from the factory. Nothing to rust now. I purchased those mounts from RV Factory Surplus on line. Now I need some for my 2001 Windsor and the web site now does not show what I described. They had a ton of ladder parts and now show not much for parts on their web site. If anyone reading this post and knows what I am describing and have a source for those die cast mounts, I would love to hear from you. Sorry for the long post. Just wanted to let you know how I fixed that problem on the bottom of the ladder on my 2000 Windsor. Ali, let us know how you are going to fix your problem with your ladder. Thanks in advance and good luck on your repair.

Thanks PapaG, Chris, 8.3Oilbuner for your responses.

I am going to the RV this weekend, try to remove the ladder following your instructions. I am hoping to find out about the condition of the double star nuts, the screws and the round pads.

Appreciate the tips on ebay item and factoryrvsurplus.com. You guys are awesome. This makes the job so much easier, and fun, and takes the guesswork and hours of research out of the game. You guys make me look good to friends and family

I think I am pretty addicted to iRV2 Monaco group by now

Consider removing the ladder all together and getting a nice collapsible ladder that can be used where ever it's needed rather than just the back and roof of the coach
