When using the patio, is the support leg by the stairs really necessary or are the support cables enough to hold a couple of people with margaritas?
The 21TRX is fairly small and we don't plan on hauling and using the deck stairs. Just wondering if the cable system is designed to support people on the deck or if the support leg by the stairs is necessary. If it's required I may move the support bracket to the middle top of the ramp for better support.

I don't own a TRX but just spent a few minutes perusing the manual. It is pretty specific about requiring the steps and support leg being installed if the ramp is to be used as a patio. Quoting: "Ramp must be supported by both cables and the properly adjusted support leg at side entry step while in the patio position".
That said: It also lists the capacity of the patio at "10 persons or 1,500 pounds". If it was my rig, I'd be inclined to think that it would be fine without the support leg when used by 2 average sized people (or say, under 500 pounds total).
Of course that's just conjecture on my part. I would suggest calling the factory or your dealer and asking them.
