Atwood ladder end cap FYI

Found end cap replacements #206154 for 0.99 @ advancedresourcingsales.com
Also found "Love your RV" website where an owner put aluminum 90* brackets under the step for more support.

I had found the supplier on a different site , and am waiting till I get south for the winter to order the parts.
I do have a question.
Did the change up part come with the different mount screws , or did you have to get them for yourself?

I just put in the order, so I will have to get back to you on that.

I was a little concerned that they were an aftermarket item and might not fit right, but customer service got back to me and this what they said.

"After Atwood bought out Kemberly, they made an engineering change, The center screw is the only one that really mattered, the other two were just holding the cap on. My replacements are taken from Atwood when they sold out. They are the ones you would get if you bought one of the last ladders they produced. They interchange perfectly."

I just got the end caps and they do not come with new mounting screws. I just used the original ones, the cap's are a press fit into the step so they are nice and tight.

I had thought from reading on other sites , that the tapered mounting screw was part of the problem with the end caps splitting , and the replacement required a pan heat mounting screw .

Anyhow; thanks for the info , glad they fit and I'll order mine when I'm set up in my snowbird site in SoCA.

I ordered in Feb .
Unfortunately the web address was lost in a failed laptop hard drive.
Minimum order is 12 ; with postage $35 delivered to my US postal box.

A little disappointed as 4 of the caps came with a tapered recess for the screws the other 8 a shouldered recess that will require a pan head screw for mounting. I'm currently looking for Allen head screws to fit , which I believe will make for a stronger mount .

I may have printed out ( or kept )the shipping invoice , and I'll try and find that . Or I'll go back in C/C statements looking for company name .

Like the link in the first post , I keep hitting a dead end .

I tracked the image from a Google search and found it to be 4 years old .
I'll be in the coach later today ; pulling out carpet ; I will see if there is a different site address listed . With my new laptop I can't go back far enough in e mail history to find anything .

There's probably been a lawsuit involved ,

The invoice listed a customer service hot mail and I sent a note ; and so far the e mail hasn't been kicked back as undeliverable ; fingers crossed .

Well, I emailed dometic and they got back to me. Said they sold the ladder division to Challenger Door in Indiana. I contacted them and John in parts says they did not get any ladder parts from Atwood/Dometic and they dont have these.
