TOPIC: Steps Stuck in

Steps Stuck in 4 months 3 days ago #1

So we came back from the Rally in Shipshewana Indiana with more issues. Some trim popped off the slide, antenna handle fell off and now the STEPS ARE STUCK in. Being so hot here at home (Florida) I need a cooler day to go out and see what's going on with the steps. These are the older type steps that fold down not the newer type. Has anyone had trouble with their steps getting stuck in?? maybe binding up somewhere where they fold up not sure it's so hot outside right now it's hard to check it. Also still trying to figure out what's going tires being so close

All the time...The tend to rust up.

Just use some WD-40 to break it lose and follow up with Silicon Spray.

I have to do this about twice a year.

Silicone spray regularly. They catch a lot of road grime as it is, so would not recommend adding WD40 for it to stick to, unless it's the silicone WD40.

We traded the original steps at the 2016 rally to the Lippert Aluminium 4-tread. Similar to Danny we spray with silicone and move in and out a few times.

Use silicone spray monthly to keep steps from locking up or being stiff to use. We full-time and move often; however, without lubing them up frequently, they get stiff to use in no time.
