  • Correct Replacement for Kwikee Steps 903206000
  • I really appreciate all the information as well as the photos. After doing some research, I found that the exact replacement for your Kwikee steps with model number 903206000 are indeed the Kwikee 32 Series Electric RV Double Steps # LC372261. I also was able to confirm this with my contact at Lippert. So, why then are your steps measuring taller than the specs listed for the # LC372261? Well, after 17 years of use, it's only understandable that the weight being repeatedly applied...

  • Replacement 2-Step Manual RV Step for 2017 Forest River Salem Cruise Lite
  • It is usually a straightforward process to replace an existing RV step unit with a new one, perhaps one with more steps or one with a different height between the steps, or even an electric one. We have 2-step units in manual and electric models and all are shown on the linked page. Unfortunately RV makers do not maintain specs on items such as step assemblies. What you want to do is measure your existing step's overall width and the center-to-center spacing of its mounting holes. Click...

  • How to Correctly Measure for Trailer Steps
  • In order to find the correct fit, you are going to have to do a little measuring. You will want to start by measuring the width of your current step assembly, followed by the height from step to step. After that, you will want to measure from the center of the step assembly at the crossbar to the diagonal line at edge of the bottom stair. For example, the Lippert Manual Pull-Out Step, # LC432687, has three steps and measures seven inches at the bottom two steps, has a stair assembly...

  • Recommended Replacement RV Steps For 2013 Montana Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • You are correct. the RV steps we offer are 24-inches wide regardless of the amount of steps. I recommend installing replacement steps like part # SMFP-4400. These are 24 inch wide steps. The mounting base dimensions are 27 inches wide x 9-inches deep. You would need to build up the mounting location on your RV to work with these steps.

  • Which Generation is the SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Steps LC791575
  • The third generation (3.0) SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Steps are what we currently have in stock and the ones you will receive. The review video you are referring to on the second generation (2.0) was carried over to the product page for the third generation because the only change that was made was to the design of the side rails which doesn't really affect function. The correct way to measure for the SolidStep is from the frame to frame (see photo) of the trailer door and round up to...

  • Can TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Scissor Steps Be Used If Not Fully Extended
  • Yes, you can absolutely still use and walk on the TofkLift GlowStep Revolution Scissor Steps # TLA8004 even if they aren't fully extended. I did reach out to my contact at TorkLift to verify this. They will have no problem supporting weight when in this state and this very design is what makes them a great choice since they can be used in tighter spaces or areas with unlevel surfaces.

  • Should Bottom of Brophy Scissor Steps be Supported if they Open to Uneven Ground
  • If the Brophy stairs # SS02 have to open to uneven ground then using something to support the side not touching the ground is a good idea. There are a lot of things you could use but I recommend keep a set of leveling blocks # CAM44512 with you for this application.

  • Alternative to Replacing OEM RV Steps with 2-Step Pull Out Step
  • The 2018 Dutchmen Coleman Lantern LT 16FB travel trailer appears to have a single-step OEM entry step. If you want to convert this to a 2-step you want to note the overall size of the step unit, the mounting hole spacing and also the retracted height. You do not want to risk reducing your ground clearance with a new 2-step unit. Most 2-step pull-out steps for towable travel trailers are 24-inches wide like # SMFP-2100, which is the item you referenced, and like the other similar steps...

  • Can Scissor Steps be Mounted on a Pontoon Boat/Trailer for Getting in and out of the Water
  • Technically, you could install scissor steps such as # TLA7806 or # AS25 on anything that you want. However you would need to make sure that the bottom of the steps, when pulled out, makes contact with the ground because that is where half of the support would come from. You also might consider a bunk ladder. I have included a link to the bunk ladder options we have.

  • Can Lippert Kwikee Electric RV Steps be Installed on a 2017 Chevy Express 2500 Van
  • Technically you could install Lippert Components Kwikee # LC3722862 on anything that they will fit on. As far as installing them on your 2017 Chevy Express van it hasn't been done before so I cannot say for sure if it would work or if ground clearance would be an issue. The mounting bolt pattern is 8 x 26 inches. We do have some steps made for the van. Extending step # CARR501050 is one option. The other options are running boards such as # DZ15300S-15316 for 155 inch wheelbase models...

  • 2505-8305 Model Steps on a 1990 Airstream 345 Motor Home Will Not Fully Extend
  • The motor is likely the culprit of your steps not retracting all the way. The nylon gear inside the motor is likely the part that is worn. The step is able to extend due to gravity but it sound like the motor does not have enough power on the upstroke to fully retract. Unfortunately, I am not able to reference the model number that you provided. However, if it is a Kwikee Step then there would not be any replacement parts for you due to the age of the step. Therefore, your only option would...

  • Replacing 3 Step with 4 Step Assembly on 2013 Palomino Puma 5th Wheel Trailer
  • We do have a large selection of 4-Step RV assemblies available. In order to choose a replacement unit that will fit into the same space designed for your existing 3-Step assembly, you will just want to take a few measurements. You will first want to measure the width of your current assembly. This will be the width of the step housing that is mounted to your trailer. I also recommend measuring the step height of the unit along with how far the steps hang down when extended. The...

  • Brophy Camper Scissor Step Compatibility with Bottom of Camper Door Measurement
  • With the bottom of the door at 24 inches on level ground, the Brophy Camper Scissor Steps - 3 Steps - Steel - Diamond Tread - 18" Wide - 300 lbs # SS03 will have a very slight lean in the tread toward the RV. Unlevel ground will obviously change this and may make this step even more user friendly. To give you the level steps, you would want to use the Brophy Camper Scissor Steps - 2 Steps - Steel - Diamond Tread - 18" Wide - 300 lbs # SS02 which will reach up to 23 inches. This will...

  • Will Manual Pull-Out Steps SMFP-2100 Fit a 2017 Forest River Wildwood XLITE 171RBXL
  • To determine if manual pull-out steps # SMFP-2100 fit your 2017 Forest River Wildwood you can measure the mounting hole spacing on your existing steps. If they are spaced 24-1/2 inch apart on center left to right and 7 inches on center front to back then these steps will fit. If you have a different measurement let me know what it is. Another thing to consider is ground clearance. Sometimes when you go to a unit with more steps it can cause ground clearance issues because the new steps...

Both the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps # TLA7845 and the Brophy Camper Scissor Steps # AS05 will fit your 43" entry height and are removable.

  • Does MORryde StepAbove 2-Step Have Option With Backplates
  • So there is not an option for a backplate/backsplash with the MORryde StepAbove RV Steps for 21-3/4" to 22-1/4" Wide Doorways - 2 Steps # MR86RR. This was a design choice, however, much like the removable pins; the reason for that is to make it simpler to clean the steps. With steps that have the backplates, cleaning them and sweeping off the dirt that inevitably gets on them is a pain because you can't just sweep it off the back of the step, so dirt tends to linger. That isn't the...

  • Manual Replacement for Lippert Kwikee Electric Steps
  • For replacing your Lippert Kwikee Electric Steps I suggest the Lippert Manual Pull-Out Step for RV's, # LC432682. This step is very similar to the Kwikee steps currently however, they will mount slightly different. These will probably require you to drill a few holes as finding a direct replacement with matching mounting holes is probably not possible. These steps have built in water channels and anti-skid tread strips. They have a 300 lb. weight capacity and come with a one year warranty. Please...

  • Could Manual Pull-Out Steps # LC432690 Fit 2010 Grey Wolf Super Lite
  • The Manual Pull-Out Steps # LC432690 are designed to fit the standard mounting brackets found on RVs like your 2010 Grey Wolf Super Lite by Cherokee. That said, there are sometimes variances in the widths of the brackets typically based on the number of steps on the assembly. This setup is designed to fit mounting bracket dimensions that are 27-1/2 inches wide outside to outside. Most likely that's what you have but worst case scenario you could weld these directly to your frame, have the...

  • Stairs for Getting in and out of a Truck Bed Camper in a 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • On the Brophy scissor steps # SS03, they measure just 5-1/2 inches from the mounting surface to the nearest vertical support for the first step so it would not work for you. But you might like hitch step # HE4045 if your truck has a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. You would use the tailgate as one step then this step as the second step down. Another option is the Truck-Pal, # 10-3000. This ladder installs on the tailgate and folds out when needed. I have linked some videos for you to...

  • Can Powered RV Steps be Installed on 2017 Chevy Express Van

  • Does Using Outriggers to Mount RV Steps Raise or Lower the Steps
  • The outriggers # LC301704 would lower the steps but only by the thickness of the outriggers where they attach to the frame of the trailer assuming that any original mounting holes where in about the same position as those on the outriggers. Otherwise it would lower the steps by about 2 inches.

  • If you can determine if the steps you have are Lippert or Stromberg Carlson then yes, the Flexco Manual Pull-Out Steps # SMFP-3200L that you referenced would work great as an easy replacement for what you currently have. Otherwise I am confident you could get these steps to fit, but it might take a little fabrication.

There will be about a 1/2 inch of space to each side of the step but that is okay because the bracket does not install to the sides of the doorway opening.

  • When measuring your doorway to select the correct steps you will need to measure from flange to flange, not the entire doorway. Since you get a measurement of 28-1/2" flange to flange, the correct steps will be the SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Steps # LC791572 which fit doorway widths of 25" - 28-7/8" and height of 27" - 36". Not the # LC791573 which would be too wide for your doorway.
